About Towanda

I am a Highly-Qualified (HQ) dual, certified teacher. I am certified in Special Education and General Education. I have my Leadership Endorsement and I am currently working on my doctorate degree in Special Education. This fall will be my 4th year teaching Kindergarten. I plan on returning back to the Special Education field because I want to open up my own school for special needs children. I specialize in elementary core curriculum subjects. I present my instruction using the students preferred learning style. I'd like to assess the student during the first lesson just to have an idea of where the student is skill-wise. I like to inform the parents of their child's successes and areas that need improvement. I assign homework after each session as a means to reinforce the skills that were taught and/or reviewed.

My base rate is $50/hour and I am available from 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. I look forward to working with your child and helping them to be successful.

I can implement my instruction from concrete activities ti the abstract thinking, I use manipulatives in my activities because I believe math is a subject that students should be able to see in order to understand the concept.

I can meet the students needs academically and socially. I am a certified special education and general education teacher.

I am able to teach phonemic awareness to where the students are able to identify and say the letter sounds individually and blend the sounds so they are able to become fluent readers as well as great spellers. These skills are vital in helping the students to become strong, fluent readers.

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)

This is my 24th year teaching. I have taught Special Education for 20 years and 4 years in General Education. I have done private tutoring for 19 years and have tutored from elementary to high school. I prefer one-on-one tutoring, even though I have worked with a company to where I taught a small group. One-on-one enables that child to feel more successful, but provides them with more personal attention to meet their needs and address their deficits much better. Lastly, one-on-one instruction provides them less opportunity for distractions.

Elementary Math

I provide hands-on math instruction. I believe math is something you can see. I am able to take a child from using concrete manipulatives to being able to think abstractly in the area of math.

Handwriting

When I teach handwriting, I implement this skill by having the student to watch me as I model it for them. Then I have take the student's hand and we write it together. I help them in forming the letters or writing the sentence. Lastly, I have them to write what I've written independently.

Phonics

I am currently teaching this with my kindergarten students. I use a phonics kit that is broken into 5 sections: Alphabetic knowledge, letter sounds, letter patterns (to include onset and rime), blends and digraphs, and r-controlled words. I do these activities for 14 days and on the 15th day, I test the student for skill mastery. If the student doesn't pass, we go back over the cards for additional days and we play interactive games to reinforce the skill.
