About Edith

Hi,

My name is Edith. I have been working with kids my whole life and love doing it. In 2008 I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts individually structured in elementary education. After graduating I joined the Peace Corps and taught reading in a farming village in Guyana for 2 years. When I returned to the states in 2010, I worked in a head start program until I decided to stay at home to take care of our two daughters.

I taught reading for two years with the Peace Corps.

I graduated in 2008 with a degree individually structured in elementary Ed.

I taught phonics for two years with the Peace Corps. For four years I worked in a head start program teaching letter recognition, letter sounds and pre reading skills.

I hope to hear from you soon!

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.
