About Theresa

Tutoring is not classroom teaching. There are important differences between the role of the tutor and that of the classroom teacher. Approaches, relationships, and techniques are different. The tutor works in very close proximity with their student with close interaction using good give-and-take.

The tutor may have to consciously strive to develop a good rapport with the student within this environment. My students knows they have undivided attention with numerous proven techniques and lessons designed just for their individual goals. I can quickly get to know their strengths and weaknesses and work through these strengths to improve performance. With this knowledge of progress, using positive feedback, students feel good about their accomplishments as we progress to the next level. Because of my own education and years of experience I understand and have empathy with often common problems. I will honestly and consistently communicate the agenda, for our session. But that said, it doesn’t mean we can’t share a sense of humor and have fun learning too!

My numerous qualifications include award winning students from classroom to college masters level. Individuals have increased their performance levels and confidence for personal and assessment goals over and over again because of proven focused techniques. Oh yes, I do have my Master’s in Linguistics ( Culturally and Linguistically Diverse populations with the international endorsement of a TESOL ,English as a Second Language) plus numerous other graduate related credits but my experience of working in and out of the classroom tutoring with Pre-K through adults for the past 25 years makes all the difference.

I have written and worked closely with colleagues and families writing IEPs ( Individual Education Plans) tutored numerous times using multi-sensory techniques (certifications such as Lindamood- Bell phonics) through adult learners writing college papers or learning basic English Literacy.. I have experience teaching, “Home Bound” for school districts and worked closely with parents (with national training) teaching them to help their own children. I also am a certified test administrator for many assessments so I know how to prepare for those. Finally, I know how important Rigor, Relevance and Relationship, while having fun learning reading and writing together, are. This means success for all.

To find the experienced, engaging, educated and empowering tutor you need please schedule your lessons quickly. I am excited( too many, "e"-s ?) to meet with you to further your educational goals today.

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.

Also training and assessment ( high scoring TAP Teacher with pay for performance) with designing English Language Learners/WIDA-used in 38 states lessons and school-wide programs.
