About Sylvia

My goal as an Early Childhood Paraprofessional is to ensure students are reading on grade-level by the end of third grade.

I believe in meeting a student where he or she is, then providing building blocks to raise them to where they should to be. I've been providing tutoring to elementary students for over five years. I love what I do. I consider it a pleasure to have the opportunity to empower others to succeed academically through reading. Reading is the key to learning.
"It's not what is poured into a student, but what is planted" - Linda Conway

Learning to read proficiently by the end of third grade is essential for academic success. I want to be able to provide each student with the skills he or she needs to create a solid foundation that would allow them to succeed academically in all subjects.

Let me help you achieve your educational goals. I'm available Monday through Friday 2:30 - 6:30 p.m. Saturdays and Sundays 1 - 5 p.m. Contact me to schedule your time. Thank you.

Approved subjects

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.

Reading

Learning to read proficiently is essential for academic success. I have background knowledge in early childhood education and as a reading tutor for the pass three years. I enjoy working with and engaging youth in a variety of strategies to improve their reading abilities.

Spelling

As a reading tutor, it is my responsibility to ensure students are correctly spelling words in their writings. I also apply other strategies that enables students to spell words correctly, such as word and word scramble games and utilizing the dictionary for spelling a word accurately.

Vocabulary

My experience as a reading tutor also includes building a student's vocabulary skills. Helping student to use context clues to identify a word and its meaning within the sentence and providing other tools, such as a dictionary to find the meaning of other difficult or unfamiliar words.
