Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a current teaching license in the state of Florida. My certificate covers all subjects from kindergarten through sixth grade. I would be happy to provide documentation if necessary.

Phonics

I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 5th grades as a full-time classroom teacher, and I have substituted in all elementary grades. The study of phonics has played an essential role, especially in the lower grades, when teaching beginning readers how to decipher unfamiliar words. Having a solid foundation of phonics is important even as students progress into the upper grades, and I can help teach or reinforce that foundation.

Sewing

I have been sewing for over twenty years, and I specialize in home decor. I can teach everything from the basics to more advanced techniques. Sewing lessons with me will culminate in a finished product, such as a pillow cover, curtains, or table runner.

Study Skills

I can help elementary-aged students learn to study in an efficient, focused way. My hands-on study techniques include the use of games, flash cards, and role play. Studying will becomes an enjoyable process for the student, rather than a dreaded task.
