About Becky

With a university Master of Science degree in Elementary Education and as a former school teacher of 8+ years, I take pride in making learning exciting for my students.
I have recently tutored elementary children at a local learning center and have done substitute teaching in an after school program. I also have my own private students.
I believe all students can learn if the appropriate learning style is applied. I teach elementary subjects including Reading, Grammar, Language Arts, Writing, Math, and History. My specialty is Reading, Phonics and Grammar. I have a minor in Spanish at my university, so I am able to help bilingual students.
My rates are reasonable and I will work with you in setting up a schedule and a rate that will be satisfactory to you.

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.

Bible Studies

Having grown up in a Christian home, I have attended church all my life. I graduated from Christian universities for both my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees. I have done extensive course work in biblical studies including New & Old Testament Survey, Pauline Epistles, and other specific books of the Bible, biblical counseling and doctrine. As well as listening to thousands of hours of sermons, I have kept up with my own personal Bible study. I especially enjoy Old Testament study and love to teach the Word of God.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a university BA degree in Early Childhood Education and a MS degree in Elementary Education. I taught school 8½ years in grades 1 - 4, with one year in Puerto Rico. During the time teaching in FL, I was certified with (FACS) FL Association of Christian Schools.
I previously taught at a local learning center and did substitute teaching at an after school program.

Grammar

I taught first through fourth grade for eight and a half years. My specialty subject is English grammar. I excelled in grammar in grade school where it was my favorite subject and this continued through my college years. I have also done online studies in English grammar in recent years.

Handwriting

I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education which included lessons in correct manuscript printing and cursive writing. I have taught elementary grades for many years teaching my students to print and to write in cursive. I tutor students in kindergarten and first and second grades showing them correct penmanship. I also have upper elementary grade students whom I teach to write in cursive. I believe good handwriting is a very important skill for students to learn and to master early in their schooling.

Phonics

I have taught first grade for 4½ years where I used 2 different phonics curriculums in different years. The first curriculum I used was the Open Court System and the second was the "A Beka Book" curriculum. I also have my master of science degree in elementary education where we learned different phonics approaches and compared them, assessing the strong and weak points of them all.

Reading

With a university Master of Science degree in Elementary Education and as a former teacher of over 8 years, I take pride in making learning exciting for my students. I believe all students can learn if the appropriate learning style is applied. I teach all subjects including Reading, Grammar, Language Arts, Writing, Math, Science, History, Social Studies and Art. My specialty is Reading, Phonics and Grammar.
