This student was well prepared for her lesson so we could move forward rapidly and emphasize only the work she needed. It was easy to determine her needs and work on them. It was a pleasure to help her move toward her educational goals. I know she will be a great success at her chosen profession!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

English

I have worked at Stanton High and UNF in language areas, as well as JU and Phoenix. I taught in Key West school system, St. Johns County system, and Duval County. I also worked for NCS Pearson scoring FCAT for third grade. As a tutor, I work raise kindergartner and first grader reading abilities with phonics training and helping middle-aged students to pass the GED exam.

Reading

I have had success with students in raising their reading level remarkably at all levels. But, of course, I like to start with students at their earliest grade level, so they can get off to the right start in their education. Reading is prime! It helps if student and tutor like each other and feel comfortable learning and teaching together. I have been a grader for the Florida Comprehensive Achievement tests for NCS Pearson, and I have been a member of the Florida group that advised on the questions for subsequent reading tests. I come from a family background of remedial reading teachers for many years in Connecticut. I am familiar with the Michigan tests as well.

Very professional and helpful! — I liked that she was on time, prepared, and ready to teach. She suggested helpful tips to improve my writing skills, and helped me search for references. She even let me borrow her writing manual! Awesome tutor! ...
