About Rona

I was a Teacher Assistant for more than 10 years and the last 7 were in an elementary school. I agree the internet is a useful tool for learning; however, there is no substitute for the human touch to help guide a student in thinking, learning and understanding. I am committed to helping all children having a positive experience and a sense of achievement in their education. I have spent many hours tutoring at risk youth, and volunteering in after school reading programs.

I enjoy planning and organizing instructional activities. My approach is interactive and I use various teaching aids to help my students learn. I pride myself on listening to the needs of the student and work hand in hand with parents and teachers. I use and teach various strategies that are proven and effective. My goal is to help the student learn.

I enjoy, history and math. My expertise is in language and related subjects such as reading, writing, comprehension, grammar and vocabulary.

Do you want a tutor who is patient, encouraging and enthusiastic? One who is committed, motivated and dedicated to helping students reach their potential? Here I am!

I am excited to make your student's learning plan! Email me so we can get started!

Respectfully,
Rona L.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I spent 7 years as a Teacher Assistant in an elementary school. During that time I planned, organized and participated in instructional duties and activities. Those activities were done with students one on one as well as in groups and covered ALL elementary school subjects.

My approach is interactive and I will use whatever teaching method works for the student: flash cards, memory games and rules to name a few.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught phonics and will work on conversational English. Identifying and manipulating the sounds are difficult and I will work hard to evaluate each students individual wants and needs. We will work on common phrases and their meanings.

Phonics

As a Teacher Assistant I enjoyed the time I taught phonics to elementary school age children.

My daughter attended speech therapy classes, so I know first hand and understand the amount of patience it takes to instruct a child how to pronounce a word correctly.

The ability to hear, identify and manipulate sounds are crucial to being a good speller and reader. Because of my expertise in spelling and reading and their related subjects, I am the perfect candidate to teach phonics.

Reading

I'm qualified to teach reading because I have attended many Effective Teaching of Reading workshops and classes. I received a certificate naming me as a Reading Specialist after completing a course offered by the Robeson County School District in Lumberton, NC.

This gave me the opportunity to work with at risk youth at Lumberton High School in a special reading lab. I know reading begins with the ability to associate sounds with corresponding letters or clusters (phonics). Teaching phonics along with fluent word recognition and comprehension is necessary until the student becomes a proficient reader. I teach vocabulary by discussing the relationships among the words. A student's comprehension of a text can include summarizing, drawing conclusions, and predicting. Asking questions during reading aloud is a good way to check for understanding.

Great tutoring session.

She was thorough and patient as worked to make sure my son understood every step of the math process.
