About Geraldine

As a graduate of the BU school of education I feel totally competent that I can instill in your child confidence, in reading while really enjoying the process. I will start with very easy books and slowly introduce books that are a little more difficult. I will also choose the key vocabulary words from the books and focus n their meaning and spelling. At the end of ea session we'll play a little game to assess how much was retained.
I taught in the Brockton, Ma school system for many years. I was one of the lucky ones that got a job right out of college. At first I taught first grade, and later 3rd grade. I really enjoy the young children and made some great strides with them, through the course of my career. As a tutor I really believe that the one on one interaction is very important and productive.

I try to make it fun and keep things light

I have high standards for my kids

My pledge is to enjoy the learning process while advancing mastery of the subject. Learning should be fun, and I believe I can instill the motivation.

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.

Reading

I earned a Bachelors Degree from Boston University, in Elementary Education. I taught first and 3rd grade for over 10 years. I love to watch children learn how to read, and also like those who enjoy it and love the success. I now have a 6 year old who is also reading beyond her first grade level and I love reading with her.
