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.

Common Core

Since Kansas introduced the common core two years ago, I have been part of that implementation at the elementary school level. I work with all grade levels K through sixth and assist in all areas at school. I consider myself extremely familiar with he common core and its demands.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked in an elementary school for the last six years. Also, I have been employed as a private tutor for the last eight years. I have worked with students as young as pre-k all the way to high school seniors. Prior to that. Taught English as a second language abroad to middle and high school students. I have watched children who could not read sight words move to being able to read at grade level with the right support and encouragement. I have a double BA as well as certification in teaching English as a second language.

Handwriting

I have taught from the program "Handwriting without Tears" for over five years. I was trained through a prescribed program. I assist with cursive handwriting currently at the fifth grade level.

Hebrew

I have taught Hebrew in supplemental schools for over 20 years. I lived in Israel for five years where I taught English as a second language and also studied Hebrew while there. I have experience teaching both adults and children in the Hebrew language.

Phonics

I have worked with students of all ages as a reading teacher from elementary school all the way to high school. I have assisted students with learning issues and behavioral challenges. I try to make learning the fundamentals fun and enjoy incorporating different strategies to increase fluency. In order to support the learning of phonics I incorporate many tools including leveled readers, flash cards and games.

Study Skills

I have worked for the last 8 years as a tutor helping students improve their study skills. I have used a prescribed program but am very flexible and understand the demands of students from elementary age to high school. Most students stay organized using their nouns tools but I can also incorporate pencil and paper to help students excel at their studying habits.
