I tutor reading, writing, and basic math. I am a no nonsense teacher with high expectations from my students. My motto is: "If I teach it, they will learn it." I believe all students can learn if you tap into their particular learning style. My goal for each student is to assist them in achieving to their highest potential to ensure academic success.
My philosophy for learning is all students can progress well in education if given a firm foundation in the basic skills (reading, writing and math). Therefore, if a child is given interventions in reading, math and writing in the early years of learning they will be highly successful in the latter years. I have also taught students who were classified as Learning Disabled with ADD/ADHD. I was very successful in the classrooms when I tapped into these students' learning styles.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Education (Special Education) and I am certified in Special Education (K-12th) and Elementary Education (k-6th). I taught 35 years in the elementary schools teaching all subjects to students in a k-6th setting. I also hold a Master of Arts Curriculum and Instruction Degree. Before retirement from the public schools, I was a licensed highly qualified teacher in the state of Delaware.
Consistency is very important! Therefore, I expect students to adhere to their agreed upon time slot. Cancellations should be given eight hours prior to scheduled session. To ensure that the students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to learn, I can tutor at the nearest library. However, if that's not convenient I would be more than happy to discuss another location.
A happy student is one who is academically successfully! I can't wait to help your child or children build their confidence so that they can achieve their educational goals and reach their full potential. I tutor reading, writing, and basic math.

Renee showed my daughter about Integers with Addition and Subtraction. She provided my daughter with a Math workbook and she solved problems. She was very patient and interested in what she had to share.
Renee is Awesome!!! She is very patient with my son who can be a "very active" little boy . His reading has improved a lot since she's been tutoring him. I am so happy we found her!!!
Thanks Danielle, I appreciate your kind comments!
Renee is off to a strong start with my 1st grade twins. She takes her job as an educator seriously and I can tell she is passionate about helping children learn. Early on, Renee established an understanding with my children about what she expected from them. She is direct, yet engaging and very nurturing. Renee plays fun games to help the kids learn math and language arts concepts. She keeps the kids moving around and has them constantly writing on the board throughout the lessons so they don't get bored or feel like they're being lectured. I can clearly see her experience in working with hyperactive/attention-challenged children as she has done a good job of keeping my energetic son on task. At the same time, she is helping my daughter build her confidence in what she knows. For both children, Renee displays patience and support in areas where they struggle. But she also looks for ways to challenge them in areas where she knows they can handle it. So far, so good!
Thanks Lynette, I truly enjoyed working with the twins!
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.
I have worked 35 years in the field of Special Education for the Christina School District in the state of Delaware. Most of the students I worked with were identified as Learning Disabled and most of the boys that were identified had ADD/ADHD. Over the years I had experiences working with students on medication for ADDHD and many students did not take medication.
Presently, I hold a Bachelor of Science in Education (Special Education) and a Master of Arts in Education and Instruction, I am looking forward in working with students on a one to one relationship.
I have 35 years teaching experience in the elementary schools in the Christina School District in the state of Delaware. During the 35 years I co-taught grades 1-6 in the Team Approach to Mastery Classroom with a regular education teacher. These classes had a small population of students who were identified as Learning Disabled, Emotionally Disturbed, etc. These students were mainstream all day in the regular classroom. Being a special education teacher in the TAM classroom my job was to adapt the school's curriculum to the educational level of the special needs students.
During my years in the TAM classes I taught all subjects to all students in the classroom. I have experiences teaching one to one, small group and large group in all subjects..
I have a Bachelor of Science in Education Degree (Special Education).
During my teaching years in the elementary schools, I was a licensed highly qualified teacher. I earned that title because I had many years of training in reading. I have had training in Spaulding Reading Program, Whole Language, Reading Mastery and Corrective Reading , DISTAR, ABC Darian Reading Program, and etc.
When having a background enriched with all of the training in phonics and reading, I am very capable to provide tutorial services for students.
I have a Bachelor of Science in Education (Special Education) and a Master of Art in Education. I am certified in Special Education (k-12th) and Elementary Education (k-6th). Also, I am a licensed Delaware highly qualified teacher. I taught 35 years in the public schools in the state of Delaware. Before I retired I taught in elementary schools teaching all subjects to students in a k-6th settings.
During the thirty five teaching in the public schools I have taught students who were classified as Learning Disabled with ADD/ADHD, children with gifted and average intelligence.
For the past 35 years I have worked with students all types of classifications in the classroom such as: at risk, learning disabled, SEM, emotionally disturbed, physical impaired, medical impaired and visual impaired. I have serviced the students with these classifications in the Team Approached to Mastery Classrooms and/ or in the Self Contained Classrooms. The services were provided from me in a small group setting or one to one with the teacher.
Over my years of teaching, I have developed many strategies to help aid students with behavioral problems. Therefore, I am very successful with student management.
