About Wendy

I have been a private tutor for years and have worked with students from preschool through high school. For eight years I was a public school classroom teacher who taught all academic subjects in various grade levels as well as a private preschool teacher. I enjoy tutoring because I am able to focus on the student's individual learning needs and guide him or her through the material based on the specific learning style that student exhibits. I often work with the student's classroom teacher to have the lessons and curriculum that is being taught in school. I assist the student with his homework, projects or test study and make a valuable connection with each child which fosters a strong learning environment.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a Minor in Early Childhood. This certifies to teach all academic subjects from Nursery (Preschool) through Eighth Grade. In my professional experience, I have taught Nursery School, Kindergarten, First, Second, Fifth, Sixth and Eighth grade students. I have also privately tutored preschool age students through high school students. Subjects varied from Reading/Literature, Math, Social Studies, Writing, Study Skills and Science.

Social Studies

Having taught middle school for 8 years in a public school system in a self-contained classroom, I taught all subjects including Social Studies. For the last 3 years of that period, the students changed classes and I specifically taught Social Studies and Science to all the sixth grade classes. My curriculum covered World Civilizations, Colonial America, Civil War, Industrial Revolution as well as Current Events such as terrorism, Iraq/Afghanistan War, political elections and the Olympics. As a private tutor, I have assisted students in various areas of Social Studies including note taking, test preparation and research reports and projects.

Study Skills

I have employed the following methods both in my classroom teaching and private tutoring experiences. I instruct the student to take notes on the material, review them daily, use chapter reviews, study previous tests and quizzes and finally, I play Jeopardy with the student to match the correct answer with the question or I give a practice test.
