Macintosh,

Macintosh

I have been using a MacBook Pro computer for the past 5 years. I search the internet, use iPhoto, iMovie and I've made many Keynote presentations. I have had countless hours of one-to-one instruction at the Apple Store in order to learn how to utilize all of these programs.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher in Illinois and hold a current Type 03 (K-9) teaching certificate. I did my teaching in Evanston School District 65, and after raising my children, returned the field of education. I have been a "preferred" substitute in North Shore School District 112 and Deerfield School District 109 for the past 4-5 years. Working with children is my passion and my goal is to see students succeed!
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I find that math is fascinating in that there is only one correct answer to a problem, but numerous ways of figuring out the one answer. As a contracted teacher, I taught all of the fifth grader math, reading and social studies. As a substitute teacher, I've taught math to students in kindergarten through 8th grade. I treat each student as an individual and know that each child learns differently. My enthusiasm is contagious and I have many techniques for making the learning of math a fun experience!
Phonics,

Phonics

Substitute teaching has given me many hours of experience teaching children in the primary grades the letters of the alphabet and their individual sounds. I've also completed lessons on putting letters (consonant blends, consonant-vowel-consonant) together, sounding them out and then reading the word. There are so many "fun" activities to do to engage children in this learning process. Remembering what the sounds and words mean comes from repeating the word, acting it out, finding the sound in a story-telling session, and perhaps doing an art project that focuses on the newly learned sound or word. I find it so important to remember that the attention span of young children is quite short, so the activities planned should be appropriate for the age group.

English

I have been a substitute teacher for many years and have had numerous positions in bilingual and dual languages classes. In addition, my former business employed many non-English speaking men and women. I am a stickler for proper grammar, spelling and punctuation, and I feel that I have had sufficient experience conversing in English with non-native English speakers.

Having raised 2 children with ADD/ADHD, I feel that I understand the challenges that ADD/ADHD students face. I've also had numerous opportunities to substitute for teachers who have one or more special needs students in their classroom. Your child's success is my goal.

Very prepared

Gail K. came to our house having literally done her homework. She brought materials that greatly helped me with my project. Gail listened to exactly what I asked of her during our email and phone conversations. She was a wonderful help during our session. Gail is also a very nice person who is willing to help you around the student's schedule, not hers. I would definitely use Gail again as a tutor and recommend her to my friends.
