About Norine

Hello, my name is Norine C. As much as I love mountains, as shown in my profile picture, I love working with youth and their families. My strong interpersonal and organizational skills shine when I am working one-on-one or in small group of students. I like tailoring to the needs of my younger and adolescent students by assisting with reading, planning papers, revising papers and establishing study skills. It is rewarding to watch kids grow in confidence and competence. My background includes nine years of teaching Jr. High Language Arts; two years of teaching Sr. high school English writing and Literature. Also, for two years, I privately tutored two elementary school aged children with ADHD and dyslexia. My job was to increase their fluency, improve their spelling, phonemic awareness, vocabulary and reading comprehension skills. I stabilized both, and strengthened them enough to re-enter a school environment.

Apart from raising and teaching four children of my own over the last 18 years, I am a Colorado certified Language Arts teacher, offering years of experience teaching English grammar and the writing process, revision and spelling. Finally, I hold the Orton-Gillingham multi-sensory educational training for early elementary students.

I am highly intuitive and able to read my students and their needs. I use a variety of techniques because students responds to a customized programs using various learning strategies.

I would be happy to discuss how I may help you in the learning process. Louisa May Alcott once said,
"I am not afraid of storms for I am learning to sail my ship."

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.

Dyslexia

I am a certified English teacher. Over the last two year I worked closely with two elementary school aged students, who struggled with dyslexia. To better help them I acquired my Orton-Gillingham training in dyslexia and phonemic awareness. It is a multi-sensory, repetitive technique, which is highly effective. I'd love the opportunity to deepen my experience in this technique and offer a more affordable rate than more experienced special needs teachers. I also have twelve years of teaching experience with junior high students that struggled with reading, reading comprehension, writing, spelling and grammar.
