About Gigi

I have been in education for over 25 years, and still like seeing students reach their full educational potential. I have had previous tutoring experience, as well as working in elementary positions. I also have worked as a liaison for students who have special education needs.

I currently work as a Dean for a charter school in Littleton Colorado. I believe that helping students to use their various styles of learning using Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligence helps students of all ages to retain information as well as supporting the areas where they might struggle with activities that are fun and rewarding.
I have a Master's Degree in Literature and have an extensive background in reading and writing. I recently worked as an Adjunct Instructor teaching English to at-risk college students.

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.

Phonics

I retired 8 years ago teaching a K-1 class in which all of my students were reading at above grade level. My previous years of teaching instruction using Making Meaning, DRA, and other progressive reading and phonemic and phonic awareness programs allowed me to have several opportunities in teaching and tutoring both children and adults in homes and after school programs.

Public Speaking

I currently work as K-12,School Dean where I have continuous opportunities in both training teachers, mentors, parents and volunteers. My Communication degree from the University of Denver has provided me several wonderful experiences in public speaking engagements, and I have also had the privilege of instructing and presenting at the college level.

Social Studies

My Master degree in Multicultural Studies as well as my professional experience as a teachers working with students in a K12 setting has allowed me to develop the necessary skills in tutoring social studies content areas.

Study Skills

I feel more than competent in teaching study skills having acquired three degrees. I have learned the Master Student concept of study skills in such a way, that it provided me the opportunity to graduate at the top of my class.

Vocabulary

I am very good at vocabulary and definitions. I am avid about using a dictionary and secondary sources for word definitions and usage of words.
