I am a retired educator who taught in both private and public schools. My certification was established in Elementary Education where I taught third and fourth grade and later as a high school reading teacher. Reading is fundamental in all academic disciplines and I helped many students learn to become better achievers through science-based reading applications.
Learning to read is fascinating and it provides a doorway to explore and engage the many worlds that impact the human experience. Reading comprehension or understanding what is read may be a challenge for some, However, the good news is that everyone can learn through tailor-made or individualized instruction. I love to see students come alive when they learn how to learn.
I am an effective English tutor who uses a science-based approach to learning. One of the greatest tools for my success is called scaffolding. This technique is an instructional design whereby I, the teacher, model the desired learning strategy or task, then gradually shift responsibility to the student. In short, scaffolding is a three stage process: (1) I do, (2) we do, and (3) you do. This tool is effective in teaching any academic discipline.
My sincere hope is to help as many students as possible learn how to become life-long learners. I encourage parents and students to engage me in conversations about specific ways I might be able to help. Please feel free to contact me through WyzAnt. God bless.

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.
