Oglethorpe University (Elementary education)
I have been tutoring all elementary subjects for 15 years as well as teaching school full time and yoga and pilates part time. I love to teach reading using a phonics and site word method that is extremely effective. I am an avid reader and I enjoy sharing my love of literature with students. I enjoy museums and all types of art and love to encourage a student's self expression and discovery through different art mediums. Science is another subject I love to teach and believe a hands on experience with materials and experimenting is the best and most engaging way to learn.

We love Rita. She is always on time, comes prepared, and makes learning fun for our 5 year old son. He looks forward to his lessons with Rita.
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 certified Elementary teacher. I have 4 years teaching experience in public schools and eleven years teaching experience in private schools. I currently hold a valid Ga teaching license. I am currently employed at a private school where I teach and tutor students k- 6 th grade in all subjects. I graduated cum laude with a bachelors in elementary ed from Oglethorpe University.
I have been teaching or tutoring emergent and struggling readers using a combined phonics and site word technique for 15 years. I believe that a strong phonics foundation is crucial for all students in learning to read. I have had a 100% success rate in teaching phonics first then site words to emergent readers.
I have been using a combined phonics/sight word reading program I designed myself to help struggling readers for the last 10 years with great success. I am also certified as a Great Books reading instructor (a guided interactive reading program that uses classic literature, discussion, and shared inquiry to improve reading comprehension, and critical thinking skills).
I have been teaching in a private school for 15 years that specializes in individualized instruction, including study and organizational skills. I help students organize their desks, folders, and notebooks. I help them find the most effective way to study and learn. I utilize interest inventories to find out how students learn best, then implement a plan to address their learning style in the subjects where they need the most help.
I have a national certification in mat beginners and intermediate Pilates. I have been teaching Pilates and Yoga for 12 years at several independent studios. I am currently teaching one Pilates and two yoga classes per week at local organizations. I have completed 50 hours of the 200 hour yoga certification. I teach children and adults in Pilates and Yoga. I am certified in first aid and CPR.
