Elaine has been instrumental to our family by tutoring my 4th grade grandson. My grandson has been struggling with common core math concepts. Elaine was able to quickly find out his weaknesses and teach him concepts to strength him. My grandson is very appreciative and can not wait for another math session with his tutor.

Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

I have worked with students in middle school on Pre-Algebra and Algebra concepts as a math interventionist.

I am a licensed professional educator who has helped teachers and students understand the targets in Common Core Mathematics instruction. I am also working with Pearson to grade and evaluate 8th grade math questions used on common core math assessments with PARCC. I am taking a course through CU Boulder on instructing functions with common core standards for multi-lingual learners.

I am qualified to teach a dyslexic student mathematics in middle school because of my extensive experience as a math interventionist in two junior highs for two years. I know how to use hands-on/minds-on instruction with lots of manipulatives and visual aids to assist students who must cope with dyslexia. I am currently tutoring an 8th grader who is homeschooled in mathematics with great success.

I am qualified to tutor elementary students in mathematics. I have a current elementary teaching licenses in the state of Colorado. I taught in an elementary school as a classroom teacher for 12 years in 1st, 2nd, and 6th grades. I taught reading, math, language arts, science and social studies during those 12 years at a local elementary school. I have tutored math students in grades 3 - 8 after school in my classroom and privately. I have tutored students after school in a reading intervention program at my elementary school. I earned a B.A. in Mathematics in 1990 and certification to teach elementary school for grades K-6 from the University of Colorado.

I am a Colorado Licensed Professional Educator for Elementary grades K-6 and Math grades 7-12.

I have taught D'Nealean print and cursive writing to 2nd graders and 1st graders for 10 years. I have introduced each letter and used practice sheets for students to copy the letter formation correctly. I have helped many students improve their handwriting by using other media like sandpaper, hand gel, shaving cream, and paint to improve the eye-hand coordination while writing in cursive.

I have taken 2 logic courses as part of my undergraduate education. One course was a philosophy course with logic. I still own the text books. I have also been trained in symbolic logic for mathematics.

I have been using MS Windows platforms for the past 20 years. I can help new users access the information they need with this operating system as a fellow user. I just taught my 80 year old friend how to use her Windows 10 software.

I taught 2nd graders to use phonics for decoding new words for 9 years. I also taught 1st graders and students in grades 2nd and 3rd to use phonics decoding skills in our after school reading program. I have taken training in Phonographix and well as other courses as a professional elementary school teacher.

I taught Prealgebra skills to middle school students as a math interventionist at three junior highs in Widefield School District 3 and as a classroom teacher at CMCA junior high.

As a professional educator, I know how to teach students to study for tests, quizzes, and other assessments. I graduated Valedictorian of my high school and use that experience when I am tutoring students in mathematics. I have also coached students after school in middle school to support them in completing school assignments.
