About Mamie

I am a trained English teacher, with a Master's degree in Literacy and Instruction. I have tutored language learners, and home-schooled with a friend; teaching her son through the internet/distance learning. I have taught writing skills, reading skills, vocabulary skills, history, grammar, and tutored adults who need to enhance their skills in reading or have a language barrier. I have worked with children since I was a teen, and returned to college later in life to finish my Education degree. I have many resources to support student learning with the Literacy and Instruction degree, which is for Reading Specialist/Literacy Coaches. I love working with students that have a zeal for enhancing their literacy skills, writing skills etc., because I have had a desire to combat the literacy problems in our nation for many years. There is a great need to combat the literacy problems in this nation, that most districts do not have the time or money to place programs that are viable to student literacy. It is a much over-looked entity in our school districts in today's time. This is my desire, and I hope to improve and enhance literacy so everyone has the opportunity to comprehend the spoken and written word.

I was focused on her child, she would interrupt to talk about her problems/family woes, or wanted to me to look at fabric she wanted to give me. Donna would hand us the child's homework assignments, and it took quite a bit of time to keep him on task. Donna's interruptions during work time, gave cause to overtime in order to complete the assignments. This delightful child's, math, writing and sight words did improve. Her interruptions were frequent, while causing him to became distracted. It is sad she does not need my services, he was a pure delight.

As for Donna, I felt she wanted me to take the fabric in trade for payment. She also probed about how I was paid, how much I got after Wyzant fees. She ask me why I didn't just tutor on my own without contracting under Wyzant. I got the feeling she wanted me to give her a break.

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.

No longer need

She is supposed to keep track of her hours. She should stop at 1 hour. She says she went over, I believe I was over charged on two occasions. She needs to stay focused on the child and not want to chat to me about her grandchildren, then she wouldn't need more time and over charge her clients. I will no longer need her services.
