About Valerie

As a credentialed teacher with over 15 years of classroom experience I understand the importance of a strong foundation in phonics, reading comprehension, writing, and math. Without mastery of basic skills, it is impossible to be successful in today's academic environment. Too often students are pushed along and expected to "catch up" on their own. Students become frustrated, lose confidence in themselves, and may give up.

As your child's tutor, I will provide a free consultation meeting to assess your child's strengths and weaknesses. You will receive a monthly report detailing what we have covered and progress that has been made. Goals for the next month's sessions will also be included. Primary emphasis will be on building a strong foundation in academic skills to provide the support for classroom success.

Having taught kindergarten though 3rd grade. I have worked with many students who have struggled with the basic skills necessary for success in today's classroom. I have the knowledge and materials to assist a child in developing mastery in phonics, sight words, reading fluency and comprehension.

I have taught in a common core classroom for over three years. I am very familiar with California's common core standards and their implementation.

Phonics is the basis for all reading success. Personal day-to-day experience helping students decode and become comfortable with the beginning elements of reading has given me expertise in this area.

Because of my belief in the importance of phonics and other basic skills, I believe in teaching students spelling patterns, rhyming, vowel sounds, blends, and even exceptions to common spelling rules.

I look forward to talking to you about how we can work together to meet your child's individual needs. Please contact me with the times that are best suited to your schedule. Let's get started on helping your child become an engaged participant in their learning!

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.

Common Core

I have taught in a 3rd grade Common Core classroom for approximately 4 years. I am very familiar with California Common Core standards and their implementation. I assisted in the writing/development of units to support common core standards in the area of English Language Arts.

Phonics

I have taught Kindergarten through 3rd grade for over 15 years. During this time I have worked with many students who have needed extra help. I have worked in small groups, and one to one. I have developed mini lessons and activities to develop this skill as well as assessments to pinpoint areas needing teaching/reteaching.
