I know that every child can learn and learns the best according to their individual learning style. Through my personalized tutoring, I will utilize the most effective teaching strategies to maximize your child's learning. I have eleven years of teaching/tutoring experience and enjoy teaching children, as well as adults. I am a certified, Reading / ESOL endorsed school teacher, as well as a Sunday School teacher. Although my certification lies in the middle and high school grade levels (6 - 12), my tutoring experience is in "all" levels, including elementary. I know that learning is a life-long process and begins during infancy and continues throughout a life-time. My teaching/tutoring curriculum focuses on learning through effective reading, writing, and spelling strategies and hands-on activities. I am a very patient teacher and my students always feel comfortable with me, which enhances their learning experience. I sincerely ask for the opportunity to teach/tutor you or your child. Thank You.

Reading,

Reading

Reading is the foundation for learning. My reading instruction focus is on understanding and improving students' fluency, phonics, context clues, and reading comprehension. I currently teach reading and have seen my students overall reading skills/scores improve drastically, especially in FCAT and ACT testing.
Spelling,

Spelling

If you can read a word correctly then you should be able to learn to spell it. Therefore spelling is based on learning to read, learning phonics, and consequently learning vocabulary. My students learn to spell by practicing vocabulary and spelling strategies. Some of the stratigies involve learning the correct pronunciation of words, breaking the words into syllables, and repeated practice by actually spelling the words. I enjoy teaching spelling and have won several spelling-bees myself.

Study Skills

I'm a certified teacher, grades 6 - 12 with eleven years of teaching experience. When teaching, I implement a variety of "Study Skills" into my students' lessons. When it comes to effective studying, different study methods work for different students. Some important study methods include: paying attention (listening for important information), taking good notes (focusing on key points), summarizing notes/details, asking questions, regularly reviewing study material, eating before testing, and getting proper rest the night before tests. Consequently, adequate test preparation is the key to successful test results. I welcome the opportunity to help improve your child's study skills and overall reading comprehension.
Vocabulary

Vocabulary

Vocabulary is a large part of my reading instruction. Students can learn vocabulary in a variety of ways but the most beneficial is through use of context clues. Students must understand how words are used in sentences/paragraphs in order to grasp its true meaning. When teaching students vocabulary I focus on using context clues, word structure meanings (prefix, root-words, suffix), synonyms/antonyms, appositions... Having extensive knowlege of vocabulary terms is definitely an asset in reading and successful testing.
