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.

ADHD

I have been a classroom teacher for 14 years. I have had at least 3-4 students each year with ADD/ ADHD and have learned and developed many strategies for helping those students focus and complete work. My students with ADD/ ADHD have found great success in my classroom. I have attended many professional seminars and workshops on ADD/ADHD. I am always incorporating new strategies and learning about the latest research on ADD/ADHD.

Common Core

While I teach in a private school I am familiar with the Common Core standards. I have been writing curriculum that follows these standards for a small software company. I have written several different project kits for grades 1-6.

Dyslexia

I have been a classroom teacher for 14 years. I have had many students with dyslexia. I use many of the Lindamood-Bell and Orton Gillingham materials and methods. My students with dyslexia make excellent progress.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 14 years of experience teaching 1-3 grades and am familiar with curriculum in grades 4-5. I have taught for those years in a Montessori school. I am comfortable working with young children and enjoy finding ways to help motivate them to learn.

Elementary Math

I am trained in the Montessori approach to teaching math, which makes abstract concepts concrete and easy to grasp. I have 14 years of experience teaching math to 1-3 grade.

Handwriting

I have taught 1-3 grade in a Montessori school for 13 years. Handwriting is a skill students practice everyday. I am very familiar with Loops and Hoops and Handwriting Without Tears for teaching cursive and print.

Phonics

I have 14 years experience teaching 1-3 grades. Much of the focus in these years in on reading and phonics. I have experience with the Lindamood-Bell method of teaching phonics and reading.

Reading

I have been teaching reading to 6-9 year old children for 14 years. My students consistently develop strong reading skill. I am trained in Montessori education.

Study Skills

I have excellent organizational skills and a lot of experience helping children organize their work. I have experience with children who struggle with executive function disabilities and attentional disorders. I also have experience working with children with language organization issues.

Writing

I have used the Handwriting Without Tears and Loops and Hoops programs to teach handwriting. My students show excellent progress with these techniques.
I have many years experience teaching writing to 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade. Some of my students have won writings honors and awards. I can teach strategies for remedial writing using graphic organizers and other materials.
I love to inspire children to be creative, independent and effective writers.
