I am a tutor with over 23 years of experience in addition to being Early Childhood Teacher Qualified with credentials covering the instruction of children in preschool through the third grade. I have also received formal training in Literacy instruction to students up through the sixth grade and to English Language Learners. I have also enjoyed success working with individuals with various learning challenges such as dysgraphia, dyslexia, ADHD and autism. As a tutor, my teaching methods are interactive and discovery-oriented. I provide instruction in the areas of preschool-6th grade (all subjects), GED/SAT test prep and in specialized subjects such as Braille and assistive technology. I can also serve my students’ families by providing consultation and support in the navigation of the IEP process and in finding resources to assist your student in achieving their life and academic goals.

Career Development

In my adult life, I have launched two successful careers. Beginning my professional life as an information technology professional, I have worked in many different environments as a telecom and networking consultant. After sustaining disabling injuries in a car accident, I have had the experience of re-defining myself as a professional after a life-altering event. I have also been a career trainer for adult subsidy recipients and at-risk youth in such areas as self-advocacy, interview skills, resume writing, professional ethics and so on. As such, I can walk individuals through the necessary steps of defining or, if necessary, re-defining their careers.
Microsoft Excel,

Microsoft Excel

I am a technology consultant with close to two decades of experience. A large portion of that time was spent being a Microsoft networking and application professional.

I have used Microsoft Word not only as a business professional but also as a student at the university level so I would be familiar with MS Word functions that would prove to be very useful to students.

Phonics

As a certified early educator and experienced tutor, I not only have specific training in literacy instruction but also experience in the field helping students improve their reading and reading comprehension skills. This is mainly accomplished through phonics instruction, the teaching of critical analysis - i.e. being able to draw out the main idea of a story and the sequencing of a story - and learning to make inferences based on context. I also have experience in helping challenged learners in these areas - particularly learners struggling with autism, dyslexia and visual impairment.

History

American History

American History

I have an Associates Degree; and, as a liberal arts major in college, I took several classes in U.S. as well as Native American History. As a tutor in American History, I like to look at it as helping my students understand the American meta-narrative, meaning America's big story. As with any story, there are always two sides and, when tutoring this subject, I like to take the holistic approach and explore both. I look forward to working with you!

Helpful for Handwriting

I think Tiffany will be helpful to my 6 year olds handwriting and spelling progression! We were pleased with the first session and are looking forward to more!

Allison, 10 lessons with Tiffany

Very knowledgeable and patient

Tiffany came and spent sometime with my 7 yr old. She was very patient, and my child responded to her very well. We will definitely recommend her for any troubled young ones. She has a very kind, knowledgeable and has a gentle demeanor.

Katina, 1 lesson with Tiffany

Excellent tutor!

Tiffany has a unique perspective that other tutors we have worked with do not possess. My daughter is severely dyslexic & she is actually learning well for the very first time. She is in 10th grade. We wish we had found her years ago!

Amy, 13 lessons with Tiffany

Excellent!

We saw improvement in first handwriting session! We will be continuing more sessions. She was very good with our 7 year old and with explaining her methods and observations to us.

Angela, 6 lessons with Tiffany

Amazing tutor

My daughter was struggling with math greatly. She has been struggling since about 8th grade and it was really hurting her self esteem. Tiffany somehow made it all makes sense to her and we cannot begin to say how grateful we are. Sierra, was pretty picky too about who hey tutor was but Tiffany made her feel comfortable and was non-judgmental from the beginning. Sierra just passed her final test and we are sad to say goodbye to Tiffany but she will have a permanent place in our hearts and our gratitude.
