About Dawn

My name is Dawn and I have been a homeschooling mom since 1996. I have a B.S. in Psychology that I earned in 2013 from Fayetteville State University. Included in my studies for undergraduate work was a heavy emphasis on social sciences as well as elementary education coursework, particularly in reading. Currently, I am a graduate-level student, attending Our Lady of the Lake University. I will graduate in the fall of 2018 with a master's degree in Social Work. This will direct me into the counseling and therapy world in the future.

Before I schooled my children, I owned a child care center teaching young children basic preschool education. I have taught youth Sunday School and youth and adult small groups for more than 15 years. Mostly, I have taught small groups of 6-8 students in the private sector. My experience is in basic education coursework as well as more specialized subjects such as life skills, financial literacy, and character training. The students I have taught or mentored range in grade from pre-K to 12th grade.

I love teaching because without the love for learning students cannot succeed. And, if I can make learning and comprehension playful and enjoyable, the love for learning will be lifelong. I believe that lifelong learning is the key to success, both in school and in life. This is my goal! To achieve this, I work to implement games in learning, using living history, mnemonic devices in language subjects, and flash cards along with a good bit of practice in math. I have taught three Biology courses with labs, accomplished multiple dissections, and LOVE hands-on experiences in all sciences.

I have taught basic elementary math, pre-Algebra, Algebra I, Algebra II, and Geometry. I absolutely love history and have experience with American, World, and Ancient history instruction as well as Economics and American Government. I am especially proficient at teaching financial readiness and life skills. After teaching a classroom of 20 high school students a financial, marketing and investment class, one of my students changed career paths and will be attending college focusing on corporate finance. I have worked with students on beginning letter-recognition and reading skills, as well as English and writing skills through high school grade levels. I am a strong research writer with excellent editing skills, since I am still a student myself. I am especially familiar with writing in APA format. My students have proceeded to pass college entrance exams and to achieve college-level coursework with great success. I have graduated three of my children, all of whom have continued on successfully in college and life.

I look forward to hearing from you and hope I can be of help. Please feel free to contact me to learn when I am available or if you have any specific questions. I am sure that we can work together to produce a love for lifelong learning in your child!

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

Bible studies and religion are quite similar, though I am maybe more qualified in Bible than in religion. As previously stated in the religion subject description, I have taught Bible classes for over 20 years in both small and large groups. I have taught Sunday school, youth meetings, small groups and women's ministry studies. I use a wide array of curriculum that I have in my own growing library, as well as relying on the Word.

Career Development

There are several wonderful websites that administer career examinations for the student. I usually teach this subject in a private classroom setting when I teach financial literacy. When achieving this coursework, I always take time for one-on-one since it is so personal.

Handwriting

I have used both regular manuscript and cursive writing as well as D'Nealian handwriting methods. While I have taught many children using these methods, I have followed a handful to see them all the way through the handwriting process. Achieving proficiency in this is all about practice, practice, practice.

Homeschool

I have been a homeschooling mother since 1996, teaching every subject from Kindergarten through 12th grade. I have also taught other people's children a variety of subjects and tutored many more through core subjects. My former students still come back to me for references and help when needed.

Phonics

I am a firm believer in the use of phonics. I use the Explode the Code series to teach this at all levels. I have used this technique with great success since 1997.

Public Speaking

I have completed college level work in public speaking as well as exercised my abilities in various leadership positions. I have spoken at women's retreats and youth events. These are in addition to speaking in a myriad of classroom settings.

Religion

I achieved biblical studies at Liberty University. I have taught Bible studies in both small and large groups. I have taught Sunday school for many years including many years as a youth leader, teaching on a variety of Christian topics.

Social Studies

I have taught this coursework using living books as a backdrop for general learning. This allows for higher interest and fun while learning facts. I have taught it this way for more than 20 years with great success.

Study Skills

I teach students how to prepare for high school and college studies by showing them how to take notes and walking them through the important things to note. This also includes how to quickly read pages, prioritizing time and the use of pneumonic techniques for remembering important facts. This is part of the basic skills to be prepared for higher learning that I teach.

Vocabulary

As a natural speller and reader, I enjoy learning and teaching new words that best articulate ideas succinctly and smartly. I seek to use the most effective means of communication for all uses. I don't think there is a child too young, nor an adult too old to learn new ways of expression. My experience is with both elementary and high school students in a small setting.
