I have a masters degree in education. My concentration is Instructional Design and Technology. I also have a elementary age child. I pursued this degree so that I could help bridge the GAP between what is taught in the classroom and my child's understanding. What does this mean to you? I offer the ability to educate through interaction with your child. If I find that there is a specific area in which your child is struggling, I can develop a computer learning session that will help your child learn through gamification.
When my child was first learning addition and subtraction in school, she was very confused and would mix the two up. To help clarify this I used old school style teaching (number lines) to create an understanding and then bridged that understanding with the methodologies used by her teacher. This was done through a lesson I developed using Lectora and gamification within the program. She went through the program once and has understood it since.
In reading, I can say my 2nd grader is reading at 5th grade level. I attribute this to the way i introduced the alphabet to her. As a child I went to k-2 in Alaska schools. I did not learn ABC's as they are typically taught. Instead I was introduced to the phonetic sound of every letter and that is how we recited the alphabet. I walked out of kindergarten reading and sounding out the newspaper. Applying this to my own child helped develop her to the reader she is today. I honestly think she enjoys reading more that I did at her age.
I love the look on a child's face when they finally understand something, like a cartoon that lightbulb that appears above their head. As a parent there is no greater reward than watching your child fully understand what it is they are learning. I have utilized my methodologies on my child and have been successful at helping her to understand learning. I am sure I can help yours too.

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.
