About Beverly

Hello!

I am a Connecticut certified teacher for English, grades 7-12, hold a Master's Degree in Reading grades K-12, and a 6th year certificate in Special Education.

My teaching experience ranges from tutoring and substitute teaching elementary through high school students, teaching high school English and teaching college level English, Public Speaking and Reading.

I am a tutor who stresses organization, discipline, and creativity; I hope to instill the love of learning and to build confidence in those I tutor.

If we work together, you will work on study skills, create a learning plan, use materials that are interesting and meaningful to you, and you will be required to do homework for the following session.

Most of all, I hope you will have fun learning with me as I am a creative teacher who loves teaching "outside of the box." Experiential learning is not out of the question.

Won't you hire me to be your tutor?

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.

Public Speaking

I have been a professional teacher and performer for many years; thus, teaching public speaking is a natural fit.

Since 2006, I have been teaching public speaking at the college level. My students conduct research on a topic and then deliver a timed speech where their poise, content and delivery are evaluated. Computer tools such as PowerPoint and other visuals and technology are often used to enhance the content.

Study Skills

My original position with a state community college was entitled Coordinator of Educational Support Services where I taught a Study Skills class each semester. I have used materials such as Becoming a Master Student and have worked with students in their content areas to build good organization, time management, test taking, reading, outlining, and writing skills.

Hard work pays off and my students not only graduated, but transferred on to universities after working on their study skills.

I have worked with elementary school ages students on their time management, organization, reading and study skills as a private tutor and in the classroom as well.
