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 teach kindergarten in MCPS and am confident in my ability to teach K-1 subjects in reading , math, writing, science and social studies. I am familiar with curriculum 2.0 which is used in MCPS. I could remediate reading and writing in 2nd grade because the skills would be at the level of a kindergartner or first grader.

Handwriting

I teach kindergarten so I teach handwriting/letter formation on a regular basis. I have lined whiteboards that I use for instruction. I also have a number of activities that I use to develop fine motor skills which are pre-handwriting skills.
I am not familiar with cursive handwriting and letter formation.

Phonics

I have successfully taught kindergarten for the past 30+ years. MCPS kindergarten includes foundational skills which includes phonics instruction.

Reading

I have a Master's degree in Elem. Education and hold an Advanced Professional Certificate for the state of Maryland. I have taught hundreds of students to read over the past 30 years.

I have followed the Jan Richardson skills progression, done daily guided reading groups with levels from Pre A through Level L and worked on comprehension orally and in reading journals. I plan for 5 reading groups each day.

She also made her a booklet with letters along with c
