I love to teach reading and writing. I write my own curriculum in reading. One suggestion, have you child's hearing tested to make sure they can hear all syllables. It could be a hearing problem keeping your child from reading. Also, have their eyes checked to make sure they can see well. If a child does not see well, they will struggle to read. These are a few tips I wanted to share with you and I have even more.
I have been lucky enough to have taught grades 1-12, mostly students with learning disabilities. I specialize in reading and writing. I developed a writing technique for learning disabled students which enabeled them to pass the end-of-grade writing test. Several Language Arts teachers have included my technique in their writing classes. Several new teachers have been under my teaching auspice including an entire middle school in North Carolina.
Each student has a specific, individualized way of learning. When I discover their special needs, I design a program to meet those needs. Students learn differently, therefore, each student must be taught with great care.
I graduated from Walsh University in North Canton, Ohio. I have a Bachelor Degree in Education, a Peer Tutoring degree, and a dual Master's Degree in Education with a special emphasis on Counseling. Walsh University is a private schoo started by the Crristiam Brothers of New England. Professors from all over the world teach there.
I have won numerous teaching awards, been nominated Teacher of the Year 4 times, awarded Teacher of the Month out of approximately 150 teachers on double sessions, wrote and published the pamphlet "Kicking Writing in the Bud", presenter at many seminars throughout the county, team leader, peer teacher, administration as a dean and counselor, home/school coordinator, newspaper liaison, did many television interviews on educational topics, help to write the North Carolina end of grade test for special needs students, Spelling Bee coordinator, Science Coordinator, received Congressional Youth Leadership Council award for mentoring students, and was the high school mascot for one football game. Whew I'm out of breath!
I have taught in Ohio, Florida and North Carolina. I am presently retired and looking to continue passing on my teaching knowledge so that others can enjoy the beauty of reading and writing.

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.
I passed the certification process for special education in North Carolina. I also passed the certification for Florida years ago. It included a writing part.
