I love teaching and have been working with elementary students for the past forty years. I started out teaching 2nd grade and have worked with kids in grades 1 - 8 over my career. One of things I continue doing is working with RIF - Reading is Fundamental. A group of folks raise money to give free books to students in grades K-3 three times a year. We go into classrooms, read to kids and then let the students select their books.
Many of the schools I worked for had ESL students who needed help learning to speak and well as write English. Sometimes students only have the opportunity to speak English at school so it is very important to make them comfortable at school as well as helping them learn English.
I have worked with many ESL students in several after school programs as well as being in charge of various reading programs in my role as a elementary school media specialist.
I have BA in Elementary education as well as an advanced degree as a K-!2 school librarian. I have taught grades 1-5 in California and spent most of my career in the Monterey Peninsula Unified School District in Monterey, California. After 36 years of teaching I retired to owning a children's bookstore in Pacific Grove, Calif. I also worked part time at All Saint's day school in Carmel, California where I was in charge of the after school program for grades K - 8. I helped all students enrolled in this program with homework. Recently I have just completed working with an elementary student for two years with his homework as well various activities.
I have always included phonics in the reading process with students in grades K - 8.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
