About Ann

I have been teaching general education grades 5-9 and a special education teacher grades K-12 for 25 years. Because of my experience with students with special needs, I am very skilled to assist students in their coursework, organization, reading for comprehension, study skills, and problem solving in addition to their academic subjects. My Master's Degree is in Education with an emphasis on Special Education and my BA is in English/Education. My experience has assisted me to be Highly Qualified in: reading, English, math, social studies and special education. I have licenses in Georgia, Maryland, and Colorado.

What makes me experienced and able to be a successful elementary math teacher is my experience from kindergarten to 8th grade. I am able to build upon the necessary concepts and foundations for mathematic success and gradually develop skills and enhance these foundations. I have taught in a large classroom, small groups and individual instruction. My abilities to diagnose missing or weaker skills and to remediate these, then to build on this knowledge to grasp the more highly developed math skills needed to perform operation and comprehend the materials. I have a thorough understanding of the mathematical system and the diverse methods used in teaching math to elementary students.

My experience in tutoring English, grammar, literature, phonics, and reading in the general education setting, in small group, and individualized instruction has led me to be an excellent and proficient scholar and teacher in these subjects. I am able to assess students elements and abilities in these subjects and to develop a plan for success in the instruction needed for instruction. My abilities to develop instructional plans for success and the necessary skills needed for this success have been proven in my teaching career as a special education teacher of 15 years. I am aware of the tools needed, the stepping stones involved, and the measures for success in these areas.

I would love to meet students who desire tutoring in elementary, middle and high school. Consistent and clear about expectations, I am a patient, organized, meticulous and kind tutor.

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.
