Dedicated, caring tutor with many years' experience helps strengthen confidence with your child's educational needs.

Hello, my name is Sandy, and I'd like to be your child's tutor. I bring experience as a seasoned classroom teacher, and I am highly effective in teaching and tutoring at the Elementary level. I have taught many Elementary students and helped them to become successful in school, and I especially love working with students who may need extra time in developing to their potential.
I have also worked with Beginning ESOL/ESL students and Special Needs students.

*Beginner's Spanish, Grammar, Poetry, and Creative Writing (Elementary School level) lessons are also available.

I can help your child to reach his or her potential, and increase your child's confidence. I specialize in providing remediation of all skills for the students. I use direct, explicit instruction and repeated practice to teach all skills, and my goal with children is to introduce and/or reinforce the skills taught in school, while providing fun, caring, and encouragement to help them. I use a variety of assessments in order to target the student's specific needs.

*Reading Vocabulary-
I believe, that a strong vocabulary helps you to achieve high levels of reading, helps you to read faster, and helps you understand what you read. I also feel that knowing how to use vocabulary words effectively will help you to acquire knowledge, that is crucial to understanding, processing and answering the questions on your test. Also vocabulary is a fundamental tool for acquiring knowledge to help you boost your Reading level for your School Exams. My Reading Vocabulary and Study Skills help prepare your Reading Test, and with my careful,designed vocabulary and instruction, including definitions,and context clues, (choosing the best word for a specific content) and my challenging materials will help to increase your Reading scores.

* 6th and 7th grade Reading Comprehension, Spelling, Vocabulary, (with definitions and context clues) also available.

*Reading: First, we "learn to read," then we "read to learn." Therefore, reading is one of the most important skills that they will need to gain information independently. I provide support for struggling readers. Often, early elementary students struggle to read and comprehend, primarily due to poor reading, fluency and deficient phonetic skills.

*I can really help your child with his or her phonics, vocabulary, inference, comprehension, drawing conclusions, context clues, main idea skills, spelling and creating Book Reports.

*Math - A student may need to review (practice basic steps that he/she may not have yet mastered). Strategies are taught to increase functional learning levels.

*Lots of practice with addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, word problems, clocks, money, and more for those students who need extra help or enrichment.
(*I have some very easy/ effective Multiplication practices to help your child learn his or her Multiplication Facts.) * I also have some very easy ways to learn subtraction.

*I believe in all that whatever my students do in their future, will be a reflection of how I have helped them to succeed, gain confidence, master their skills,find their strengths, and to become "the best they can be."

* This is the perfect time for your child to to start / and or continue reading from a Chapter Book.
Flat Stanley, Berenstain Bears, and Beverly Cleary Books, such as Ramona Quimby Age 8, Henry Huggins, Ralph and the Motorcycle, and Ralph S. Mouse, seem to be a big favorite with my students, as well as many others.
(Comprehension, Reading Skills and Book Reports are also included with my Chapter Books.)

*Reading , Study Skills, and Test taking Strategies- *Now is the perfect time to work on Reading Vocabulary, Comprehension, the Main Idea,Cause and Effect, Author's Voice/ Purpose, Inference Skills,Generalizations, Detailed Questions; as well as Study Skills, and Test-taking Strategies to study and prepare for the Reading section of the ACT Test. Reading Passages will be on Prose Fiction (from short stories or novels), Humanities, (memoir of personal essays) (real people/real events) Social Studies,(generally discussions of research with support and presentation of facts) and Natural Science. (any form of scientific writing, lab report,article, textbook, with scientific language, facts, and figures,) *There are 4 Reading passages, which should take you approximately 9 minutes per passage.
*You have 35 minutes to answer 40 questions. *Allow yourself plenty of time to start preparing for this test. (This is the perfect time to start.)

***Special Spring Rates - 1 1/2 hrs. of tutoring, *** ($44.00 an hr.)
($44.00 for the hour and $22.00 for the extra half hour)
(Total tutoring fee will be $66.00 for 1 1/2 hrs. of tutoring.)

Sandy

ADHD

I am an experienced, seasoned teacher, and have taught and worked with students who were diagnosed with ADD/ADHD from the Kindergarten level up to the 5th grade level during my many years as an Elementary School Teacher. Some of the students I had to make recommendations for them to be tested by the school staff, identifying that these selected students were having difficulty in the classroom setting focusing, or exhibiting unusual behavior problems. The students were taught by me, in my self-contained classroom, for all their subjects. These students were on an individual reward system set up to help them to control their behavior and helped them to show progress on their assigned tasks at school. I worked very closely with the school guidance teacher, and the students' parents with communication on a daily basis to have a reward system at school, and with the parents at home,to accent on the positive behavior, show their strengths, and weaknesses and to show improvement with the students' assigned tasks. The students were very bright, but had a hard time focusing, and had a short attention span, and not a disinterest in learning. I have been successful at strategies to help students at school academically, socially, and behaviorally. I have always enhanced my lessons to adapt and modify the curriculum as needed and to be customized for each student's individual needs to optimize his or her learning. I helped each student with organizational skills, study skills, and behavior modifications, and worked with students' strengths to help them learn best, and be highly motivated to succeed. Usually a student with ADD/ADHD will learn more, and learn quicker, in a one-on-one setting. With my tutoring, I hope to help your child develop the skills he or she needs to become a self directed learner, which will last a lifetime of benefits.

Great Tutor

Mrs Sandy is an excellent tutor, very dedicated to the kids. My daughter loves her. I was having a lot of issues with my daughter doing her homework, it was taking me more than 3 hours and at the end most of the time I had to put her on time out. She hated to read now I can take her to read with no complaints, she does her homework in 1 hour or 1 hour and a half tops. No time out. She has a slight ADHD, but since she is going with Sandy everything is easier for her and my self. Also Sandy's hours and place are very comfortable, she always tries to work around your schedule and make up for the time that you missed. Her rates are reasonable for everything that she accomplished with the kids. I really recommend her for any kids of any age. I'll have her until the end of this school year and I'm planning to hire her for the next school year too. Now after almost two years It feels great and peace of mind to be back with Mrs. Sandy She was a great tutor and an excellent help to my daughter for her to pass 1st grade. Now she is going to third grade, which I have heard that it is one of the most difficult grades in elementary, so I want my daughter to be ready and well prepared for it. And I'm sure that with the help of Mrs Sandy she will. Same way she was in first grade. Thanks so much for helping my daughter.

Thank you for writing such a beautiful review about my tutoring, and always taking the time to rate my lessons. :) It is very appreciated. It is a pleasure to work with parents, who want the best for their child. :) It has also been a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with your daughter. She is such a cute, adorable,happy, smiling and cooperative little girl. I'm so very proud of how she has such a positive attitude, when working with me. Every time I work with her, I can see how she's improving in her skills,while growing academically, and confidently. Working one-on-one with her is so beneficial to her in her learning. She loves someone sitting next to her and helping her with her skills. :) I hope I will be able to help her for a long time.

Lovely first approach

Our first lesson was a really pleasant one. Our son has enjoyed the lesson, and we are hoping to have many more.

Dear Francisco, "Learning is a treasure that will follow its owner everywhere." Chinese Proverb "If we spoke a different language, we would perceive a somewhat different world." Ludwig Wittingstein It is a pleasure to work with your son. He seems to be very enthusiastic, and has a very positive attitude toward learning. I am so impressed with how he remains focused,and can be depended on, to do what he is asked to do. With lots of practice with me, in school, and at home, he should become very successful in writing, reading,speaking, and understanding all that he is learning. Your help and encouragement to help him be "the best he can be", will keep him motivated to learn. Looking forward to helping your son in all our future tutoring sessions.

Sandra was very thorough in her assessment of our 3rd grader. We are pleased to work with her and would recommend her to others!

Dear Aliya. "Education is wonderful, it helps you worry about things all over the world." Joey Adams Thank you for taking the time to write something nice for my profile. :) It's always great to have parents, who are so supportive, and want to address their child's challenges and want to help to put their children on track to achieve success in and out of the classroom. The testing I did will help you and me to understand, identify, and pin point the areas where your daughter needs targeted instruction, and help to see where the difficulty is, and how to improve her achievement and self-esteem. I'm excited that I will have the opportunity to help your daughter with her skills. She is a very pretty, sweet, cooperative, and well-behaved child. I love her beautiful smile, and her good sense of humor. She has a nice, positive attitude toward improving in her skills. :) I look forward to working with her.

Caring and knowledgeable tutor

Kyren says he now feels happy about his writing and spelling since he has been with Sandra. She is very caring and knowledgeable.

It's wonderful that you, and your husband, are so supportive in wanting to help your grandson to succeed. He is so lucky to have such nice, caring, grandparents! :) Your grandson is very well-behaved and cooperative,and it is such a pleasure to have the opportunity to work with him. :) I really like how your grandson seems so eager to take responsibility for his learning .He puts forth his best effort into working on a task,such as filling in the correct word in a Spelling sentence. Great, great job ! :) I look forward to helping him gain confidence, and becoming stronger in his skills.

Excellent first session! Very patient!

Sandra was great and very patient with my son who normally gets frustrated with things he doesn't understand (he has Asperger's). She took her time with him and showed him ways he could calm himself down. He went home feeling confident and looking forward to his next meeting with her. Thanks Sandra!

"Life is for happiness, and we feel it with appreciation and kindness." I genuinely appreciate you taking the time to rate your son's first lesson, and it's also nice to know that you and your son enjoyed the lesson as well. It's been a pleasure having the opportunity to work with your son. :) He tried his best throughout the lesson, and was a hard worker. I enjoyed listening to his wonderful ideas, that he was sharing with me. He tackles new challenges seriously/eagerly and with a positive attitude. I can see he truly shines in his exceptionally special strengths in understanding and recognizing new words in Reading passages. I can hardly wait to see all the great things he will do in our future tutoring sessions.

Great Tutor!

Sandra is a great tutor. my daughter was very nervous to start tutoring. Sandra made the meet and great very comfortable. She spoke to my daughter and told her how she's going to help her with her math. My daughter was given a test to find her week points. My daughter is very confident that's she is going to do much better in math. She's very excited. Mrs Sandra also made her a drawing book. I love that Mrs. Sandra used math tools to help her along the way. My daughter also has websites she can use to help her with math until we meet again. I would recommend any parent to choose Mrs. Sandy as a tutor.

Dear Malicka, "Each student is an individual. The key is helping a student to determine, where he or she stands, and to point him or her in the right direction from his or her point of view." "Tutoring is the process of getting students to become independent through questioning. Tutoring helps students develop self-confidence and improve study skills." Thank you very much, as your support is greatly appreciated. :) It is a pleasure to work with your daughter, a very special, and beautiful young lady! I can see she has great potential, and she seems very eager to improve in her learning. She followed directions, did her best, and did an awesome job, being a hard worker for me. I look forward to seeing, and working with her each time.

Incredible Tutor. Since we met her, my child is very motivated and learning a lot every single day.
