Bio

I was born to teach. My students say that I make things fun and easy to understand. I love teaching, learning, and being a part of helping my students succeed.

I have found that usually when a student is struggling in a subject, either there are gaps in instruction and skills that were missed or not taught in earlier grades or the student does not understand the vocabulary for that subject. Sometimes the student is making minor common mistakes that need to be pointed out, or has not had...

I was born to teach. My students say that I make things fun and easy to understand. I love teaching, learning, and being a part of helping my students succeed.

I have found that usually when a student is struggling in a subject, either there are gaps in instruction and skills that were missed or not taught in earlier grades or the student does not understand the vocabulary for that subject. Sometimes the student is making minor common mistakes that need to be pointed out, or has not had enough practice to master a skill. I address all of these issues during tutoring.

My approach includes oral questioning and short written tests to determine a student's weaknesses and strengths, as well as determining the student's learning style so lessons can be meaningful. I communicate with the student and parent to set goals for tutoring sessions.

As we work together, I assist the student with developing the positive mindset necessary for learning. I use variety in lessons to keep learning interesting.

In addition, I provide valuable resources such as notes and relevant websites to encourage the student to practice between lessons, accelerating the learning process.

I have taught 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades in public school and 6th, 7th, and 8th grade at a private school. Over the years I have also tutored students from preschool through 9th grade. In addition, I have tutored adults in Math, Reading Comprehension, Writing, preparation for the GED, and test-taking skills.

My Bachelor's degree is in Elementary Education and I have a Master's degree in Adult Education and Training.

My specialties and my favorite subjects to teach are Math and Language Arts. I love teaching children to read, especially when others have given up on them. I also enjoy experiencing students making the transition from hating math to loving it.

In addition to Math and Reading, I also teach writing, test-taking skills, and organization.

I have tons of resources from over 20 years of teaching and tutoring, including books, workbooks, and hands-on material to help students "see" complex or difficult concepts.

My ultimate goal when tutoring is to get the student to a place where they no longer need me.

Contact me to discuss how I can set you or your child on the road to success before the new school year begins.

Rose has helped my child learn and understand the basic concepts of math. His grades are starting to increase and he is more confident in his math skills. Rose has made a big difference in ours lives.

Patient and knowlegable reading tutor with a plan.

It was my daughter's first session with Rose, she absolutely loved her. She stated that Rose made her feel comfortable and is looking forward to having more sessions with her.

Great teacher! I highly recommend!

Rose has helped my daughter become a great reader. The things that she has taught my daughter I didn't know. So not only is she teaching my daughter but she has taught me as well and made it much easier for me to teach my daughter. She loves her job and it shows in her work. Very patient, very helpful, and really want to help children learn! Best decision ever made!

Shalonda, 96 lessons with Rose

Rose made it fun. Very effective!!!!

Today's lesson was on basic phonic skills and consents and vowel blends. I liked Rose's approach. Very engaging and effective!!!

Cornelius, 3 lessons with Rose

Great help and knowledge

Love the reference to a helpful website. Rose Explained things so that my daughter clearly understood. Very good at building up my daughter's confidence

Aloma, 168 lessons with Rose

Patient Geometry Tutor

Rose helped my daughter understand some missing fundamentals of Geometry. She was very patient and kind to a student that was just the opposite. She was able to get thru the barrier.

Lois, 4 lessons with Rose

Great tutor - Get her before she's gone!!!

I've been using Rose for a couple of months and I can see a difference. When she began working with my daughter she was really struggling in reading comprehension and math. Since working with Rose, not only is she becoming more confident but her self esteem is getting better when it comes to approaching her school work. Rose is very patient and develops a relationship with the students so they'll feel comfortable and will open up with her. My daughter is somewhat shy and timid and since working with Rose, she has excelled so much in school. I'm so impressed I can't wait to see the progress as the school year goes. Rose is always on time and shows up to work! You certainly won't be disappointed if you select Rose as a tutor. She is doing an excellent job with my daughter and I am thoroughly proud of her and my daughter. I can't say thank enough! Proud Parent!
