About Pauline


Bio

I have been tutoring one-on-one for over 50 years. After teaching in public schools, I decided I preferred the "eyeball to eyeball" contact of private lessons which produced better understanding of the subject matter and faster positive results.
My favorite student age is second grade. For remedial students there is a greater chance of catching up if there is early intervention with extra help. I ask that my students come twice a week. They will have vocabulary homework and sometimes extra...

I have been tutoring one-on-one for over 50 years. After teaching in public schools, I decided I preferred the "eyeball to eyeball" contact of private lessons which produced better understanding of the subject matter and faster positive results.
My favorite student age is second grade. For remedial students there is a greater chance of catching up if there is early intervention with extra help. I ask that my students come twice a week. They will have vocabulary homework and sometimes extra reading. I give lots of encouragement and sticker rewards. My students usually achieve grade level within a year.
I have a 24-hour cancellation policy for missed lessons, but I do offer make-up sessions.
I hold a current CA Elementary Teaching Credential and a City of Modesto business license. I am a Sunday School teacher (1st and 2nd grade) and a professional author.

I have tutored Reading and Vocabulary, both of which employ phonics, for over 50 years. I use both the Hay-Wingo Reading with Phonics (Lippincott) and A Handbook for Reading (A Beka Book Reading Program). I took additional training in Phonics at the Modesto Homeschooling Convention where I received instruction in Phonic Pathways, a Reading Manual for Beginning and Remedial Readers by Delores G. Hiskes (Dorbooks). I have also used the 1st and 2nd grade workbooks of Spectrum Phonics (McGraw-Hill). Years ago I worked with the A.D.D. (Auditory Discrimination in Depth) program by Lindamood (Teaching Resources).
