About Dain

What motivates me to teach stems from my own challenges as a student. Learning came as a struggle for me as a child with a language delay. My hard work ethic and perseverance, however, has always pushed me through any obstacle, and that is one lesson that I plan to impart to any student I meet. I have had the pleasure of tutoring students whose first language is not English for four years and am licensed to teach from kindergarten to sixth grade.

I specialize in tutoring ESL and Elementary Education learners for success in the workplace and in school on ISTEP, I-READ, and LAS link assessments. I am also qualified to teach Spanish and phonics. No matter what activities I have plan for my tutoring sessions, my overall goal is to provide my clients adequate instruction and resources so that they can continue their study on their own. Homework will serve as review and practice.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a valid teaching license and can teach grades from kindergarten to sixth grade. My license is through the transition to teaching program here in Indiana. I graduated from Indiana Wesleyan University and tutored a third grade student using brain-based literacy instruction.

Grammar

I am a licensed teacher. I am familiar with new instructional methods to learn the parts of speech using colors. I have access to many different resources.

Handwriting

I have a teaching license in elementary education and have been participating in an independent study about handwriting for lefties. I know how to grip a pencil. I am familiar with intervention strategies to improve handwriting.

Phonics

I am qualified to tutor this subject because I have a teaching license for elementary education. I have been trained in the field of brain-based literacy instruction. I am familiar with using a quick phonics screener and all of the necessary screening that I have to do to come up with the necessary interventions.

Spanish

I have studied Spanish for the past seven years. I have served as an ESL liaison for a school where I translated documents and served as an interpreter for parent-teacher conferences.
