About Juanita

My degree in Elementary Education came alive when I learned how to teach people how to read. The focus was not just for children of elementary school age, but for adults, as well.
It starts with knowing the alphabet, then it's practicing with someone who is patient and can help the connection between the page and the brain. If there is a disconnect between the eye and the way the brain processes, a specialist may be recommended.
I learned at age 4 to read. Analyzing how that happened and then learning that my analysis was correct was exciting. The ability to read opens worlds to an individual. My enthusiasm grows as my students discover the "Aha" moment when they know they can read.
My method is fundamental, and it begins with knowing the alphabet. It all stems from there.
Having attended the university where McGuffy developed his famous "readers," I take pride in delivering the skill to anyone who is interested.
I have a BS in Education, k - 8. I have tutored in writing, creative writing and reading in grades k - 5.

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.

Public Speaking

I have been recognized as a "Competent Communicator" by achieving this degree of public speaking at Toastmasters International. The achievement involves delivering 10 speeches of various types of communication, such as persuasion, demonstration, humor to name a few. Once a quarter I am the platformer, or emcee if you'd like, at our church service. I am not afraid of impromptu speeches in front of a group of people. Because of this earned competency, I am qualified in public speaking.
