About Alice

I am a certified elementary school teacher with 35 years experience. The last three years I helped many students as a reading interventionist. Some of those years, I helped many bilingual students be successful.

Almost like a doctor, I can diagnose most reading problems and provide specific help in that area of need. The activities I will provide encourage participation and self-motivation. I am very familiar with Common core and the Smarter Balanced test.

I am a certified Reading consultant. I served in that capacity for 7 years before becoming a District curriculum reading and math interventionist. After I retired, I served as an interim language arts curriculum director for one year.

I wrote curriculum aligned to common core. I also trained teachers in common core and selection of materials.

As a bilingual teacher and first grade teacher, I needed to have a strong foundation on teaching phonics. I also provided professional development in this area.

I understand language and patterns of language.

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.

Common Core

I have provided professional development on understanding common core. I wrote and aligned curriculum with teacher teams to make sure we address all the common core standards. In addition, we assured all units helped increase student engagement by planning more open-ended questions and activities that required collaboration among students.

Phonics

Again, the last 12 years as a school reading consultant, district-level interventionist and interim language arts coordinator, I provided professional development in this area. I also assured curriculum included specific, instructional routine with developmental lessons to support students.
