About Evelyn

A parent contacted me concerned her child would be retained. The student was reading below level based on the student's school reading record. After working with the student three times weekly, utilizing a multi-sensory approach, to the amazement of the teacher, the student earned promotion to the next grade level.

Reading is an acquired skill. For some it is relatively easy to attain. For others, reading can be laborious.
My goal is to assist students who find reading labor intensive, boring. Reading is thinking. A learned skill, reading takes practice and determination. If you have been told that your child might benefit from reading remediation, contact me. I can help.

I continue to work to keep up to date on the latest reading instructional practices. I enjoy reading and reading to learn. I have a BA in journalism, a MS in business management, and a state certified educator.

With a focus on caring, students and parents quickly ascertain how much I enjoy teaching. Learning takes place in a relaxed, but studious situation. Working one-on-one with a student is what I enjoy most.

Student success is utmost priority. Using various instructional strategies, I will tap into the student's schemata to develop a course of action to meet your student's academic needs. My experience is in reading and math: phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, comprehension and fluency as well as elementary math (number sense, multiplication, division, word problems, fractions, geometry). Developing independent learners is crucial so we will also work on time management and study skills.

I am currently available daytime, evenings and weekends. I would ask for a 6-hour cancellation phone call/email in order to adjust my schedule.

I have the highest expectations of my students and of myself. Looking forward to great rewards through consistent and diligent efforts, please contact me so I can be of service to 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.

I am a Florida certified K-6th elementary education instructor.

I have been in the education field for the last 15 years.
