I specialize in tutoring Reading and Language Arts from Pre- K to Grade 3. My passion is working with the younger children, but I also enjoy working with students up to Grade 6.

I am listed in two editions of Who's Who Among America's Teachers and can supply references. I have worked for tutoring agencies and also have my own private students. I will come to your house or meet you in a public library.
I use a lot of positive reinforcement including praise, stickers, candy, and other incentives that are agreeable with the parents. Please ask me about sibling discounts and referrals plus my success stories.

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 have many materials that I have used over the past to teach Phonics to children from grade 4 to Gr. 2 using Phonics. I believe a good Phonics Foundation is the key to Reading and Spelling. I also have supplemented Hooked on Phonics and have the kits from Level K- Level 5. I have used a combination of phonics programs to teach children to begin reading as early ages 3 and 4.
I specialize in teaching reading from Pre- K to Grade 3. I have successfully taught children starting at age 3 and 4 to read. I also have increased reading levels by at least 1 grade level. Teaching reading to younger children especially is my passion. I have been very successful in tutoring reading also to No Child Left Behind children. Many of my students were able to be on the honor roll for the first time in their lives. I love to see my children succeed and use many techniques including lots of praise, certificates, and small prizes for incentives.
