About Paula

I have a passion for teaching children and adults. I have taught in schools in several states and countries for over 20 years. I believe that all children can learn when given the tools and strategies that they need. Individual tutoring offers students the chance to directly interact with a teacher who can give immediate feedback and encouragement.
I have experience teaching adults and children who are non-native English learners. I am willing to work with students as individuals to help each one achieve success to the best of his or her ability.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have taught students with ADD/ADHD for over 20 years. Because each student is unique, I do not have a particular formula, but need to work with the student and parent to develop learning goals for lessons. Teaching these students requires patience and an ability to change lessons in order to keep them interested and motivated.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught in public and parochial/private schools in grades preschool through third grade. I have experience volunteering and working with all of the grades. I currently work with sixth and seventh grades students.

Elementary Math

I have taught Elementary Math and have assisted Middle School Math students. Many students only need to be shown a different approach to understand the concepts. I can help!

Phonics

Reading has always been my passion. I have taught phonics to beginning readers for many years. It is the basic strategy necessary for learning to read.

Study Skills

I have taught students the necessary study skills at various grade levels for many years. I teach students how to organize their homework by breaking it into segments or chunks and timelines of when work must be completed. I teach them the correct use of a textbook and how to use reference books. I also teach students how to use the internet for research.
