Most of my classroom experience has been in the elementary grades, but I have worked with students of all ages, Kindergarten through 12th grade. I have been a tutor for many years. A lot of my tutoring experience has been at the elementary through 10th grade level. I have an extensive collection of educational resources for all subjects and grade levels. I conduct lessons with a friendly, but business-like approach. I enjoy working with students of all age levels and helping them learn so that they can be successful in life.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a licensed Learning Disabilities teacher. I have several years of successful teaching experience working with students that had various types of learning disabilities. I have taught students in the classroom setting, small groups, and individually.

Algebra 1

I have tutored students in algebra before.

Cooking

I have taught a ten week Saturday cooking class in Elkhart. I taught basic cooking terms and techniques. The class learned about the food groups and the importance of good nutrition. Students learned to make appetizers, snacks, main entrees, side dishes, and deserts. Students have a collection of recipes that they know how to prepare at the session.

Dyslexia

I am a certified Learning Disabilities teacher with a Master's Degree in education. I have several years of successful teaching experience working with students with various learning difficulties.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 30 years of successful teaching experience in the elementary classroom. I have taught all grades and subjects in grades K - 6. I have a master's degree in elementary education.

Elementary Math

I have classroom teaching experience in all grade levels, K-6. I have tutored students in math in all levels through algebra. I am familiar with grade level math curriculum and state standards.

ESL/ESOL

I have previous experience working with students who are learning English as a second language. I have materials that can be useful when learning reading and writing in English.

GED

I have tutored several high school students with various subjects, especially language arts and math.

Phonics

I have a master's degree in elementary education. I have experience teaching phonics as a tutor and in the classroom. I have taken many reading classes beyond the master's degree - I would only need a few more classes to receive certification as a reading specialist.

Prealgebra

I have experience tutoring math to students in elementary and middle school. I have tutored math levels through algebra.

Reading

I have taught reading for many years at all grade levels. I feel that being a good reader is necessary to being successful in school. I have taken several courses beyond my Master's degree in reading instruction.

SAT Reading

I have three of my own children who have taken the SAT and ACT. I know the studying and preparation they put forth to be ready for these important tests.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills as part of the regular curriculum in the classroom and to students that I tutor. Good study skills are essential to successful learning of any subject, or grade level.

Vocabulary

I have taught in the classroom and I have been a tutor for several years. I am qualified to teach math and Language Arts (reading, comprehension, spelling, vocabulary). I am a licensed teacher with a Masters degree in education.

Writing

I have taught reading and writing to students of all elementary grade levels. I have a lot of resources and materials that I can use when I tutor.
