About Cecile

I am a certified teacher (K-8) in the State of KY. I have been in elementary education for lots of years teaching mostly grades 6-8 in organized classes in Math and Language Arts (Reading, English Grammar, Spelling and Writing) more than any other subjects. I have tutored grades K-8 at school and with an in-home tutoring service. I am also teaching a GED class.

Experiencing a child learning and growing in confidence in a pleasure like no other. I am able to develop a loving, trusting relationship with the student and have seen marvelous results. I am constantly searching for a way to reach the child whether it be a youth or an adolescent. I have enjoyed various aspects of education, leadership as well as the classroom for almost 50 years. I believe I can help anyone learn if they have the desire.

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.

Dyslexia

I have tutored several students before/after and during the school day in an organized program based on the Orton-Gillingham method of teaching reading. I also managed a computerized literacy program for students struggling with reading some of whom were dyslexic.

Knowledge and friendly

Cecile was great with my nine-year-old son. He can be kind of shy and not forthcoming but she was able to get him out of the shell and they worked great together.
