About Lydia

I'm a natural motivator and certified teacher (T-5); with me learning is fun...I currently tutor students in Fayette, Fulton, and Clayton Counties (math and language arts).

I teach the Singapore way, redefining math skills by teaching new ways to understand numbers. Strengthening skills with fractions, percentages, ratios, and decimals is a must. Most students having trouble with math did not receive adequate instruction during a primary grade and developmental stage of learning. I assess the deficit and proceed to address immediate needs.

Other subjects rely on reading skills; I emphasize the importance of improving reading skills with proper, relevant motivation, and finding the students' interests. When lessons are made relevant to students' lives and interests, the lesson has personal value.

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.

ASVAB

ASVAB is a general aptitude test for the ARMY, based on sound psychological theories of mental abilities. I have a superb understanding of such tests because I've spent 18 years studying them. The best way to prepare for this exam is to concentrate on general knowledge of math, science, and reading comprehension. Become familiar and comfortable with the multiple choice tests, and improve test strategies. I can help students do this by giving individuals experience with such tests.

SAT Reading

Nothing replaces practice for long-term improvements with reading skills, but one can learn strategies for test taking in this area. The more you read the better your chances of increasing vocabulary, word recognition, and comprehension. There is no shortcut for improving reading skills; still, test taking skills, for this subject, can become more favorable when students learn sound strategies and improve confidence.

Special Needs

I currently hold a teacher, interrelated position in Fayette county. I hold a T-5 certificate in Behavioral Sciences with emphasis in Behavioral Analysis. My skills involve observation, assessment, and behavior modification.

Study Skills

As a behavioral specialist I teach children the skills necessary for optimum learning. This includes organization, time management, and setting realistic goals.

Writing

Currently working on my dissertation in research psychology...
