About Ms. Valerie


Bio

Sometimes I feel like a magnet! Students seem to know right away that I like and appreciate them, and we tend to get down to the honest issues right away. This is great because it saves a lot of time and helps us to stay focused on the tutoring task at hand. I've been teaching for more than 10 years, and love working with students who have learning disabilities. In fact, I am a certified Learning Disabilities Teacher-Consultant.

Sometimes I feel like a magnet! Students seem to know right away that I like and appreciate them, and we tend to get down to the honest issues right away. This is great because it saves a lot of time and helps us to stay focused on the tutoring task at hand. I've been teaching for more than 10 years, and love working with students who have learning disabilities. In fact, I am a certified Learning Disabilities Teacher-Consultant. I believe that everyone has something they are not good at, and it is okay, as long as we work on overcoming whatever that might be.

I am friendly, patient, and skilled at working with young students.

I understand how frustrating it can be for a student whose behavior or personal challenges prevent them from grasping the material as easily as someone else. I have experience with different methodologies to help present the material, and work around techniques to apply.

Let me know what you need, and I can help!

Handwriting

I have served as a classroom teacher for more than 10 years, and have taught most subjects, including handwriting. Sometimes the issue is how a student holds a pencil, sometimes it is his or her particular musculature, and sometimes it is the position in which the students is sitting that most affects his or her ability to write clearly. I think modeling and hand-over-hand practice work best when teaching handwriting.

My experience includes curriculum development, tying newspapers and magazines into the study skills program, teaching organization, methods, and preparing student work for viewing by the teacher.

Very helpful tutor

Ms. Valerie has met several times with our second grader, Chelsea, and helped her with reading and math. Chelsea just got the most improved certificate in her class which we think was a result of Ms. Valerie's tutoring.

First session was great

We met with Ms. Valerie for the first time yesterday. She was absolutely wonderful and I look forward to the sessions yet to come. My son was very comfortable around her and she already has some great ideas and techniques regarding his reading comprehension and study skills.
