I have worked as a Kindergarten teacher for 3 years. The curriculum included teaching alphabet recognition and writing, numbers 1-20 recognition and writing, phonics and reading simple books. When my children reached school age I was very active in helping them with their schoolwork as well as helping in the classroom. I worked with their teachers in creating classroom teaching aids, correcting papers, and working with small groups of students who needed extra reinforcement in reading, phonics, and math. I began tutoring again when my grandsons needed extra help with reading, phonics, and math. I worked with the teachers at Dynard Elementary School in St. Mary's county who provided me with lots of help and resources. I am proud to say my grandsons are now reading well above grade level. I also work as a substitute teacher in the lower elementary grades at Grace Christian Academy.
I really enjoy working one-on-one with students. We work as a team to build on their strengths and overcome their weaknesses. I believe learning should be fun and interesting. I try to make each lesson something the student will look forward to instead of dread. I use flashcards, worksheets, games and interesting books to capture and keep my students' interest. I start with the simple basics to instill confidence and then introduce harder material to keep them moving forward. I ask my students to always try their best and use simple rewards to encourage their efforts. I have worked as a Kindergarten teacher for 3 years.

Miss Ann is a lovely lady, she promotes learning by rewarding my son if he has achieved the day's goals. She has a lot of patience as well and I can see the improvements that my son has made. I'm deeply grateful and I would recommend her to anybody.
Mrs. Ann has been working with my daughter for about a year. She is patient and very easy to work with. Claire is doing very well in school and I know it has alot to do with the excellent guidance and tutoring she has had with Mrs. Ann. With the end of the school year coming we will be keeping our weekly schedule with Mrs. Ann through the summer as well. She is able to teach Claire in a way that keeps her engaged they play games and have fun with the curriculum. You should give her a try. Once my son is older he two will be working with Mrs. Ann.
My granddaughter went from getting 3 out of 20 spelling words correct to getting 100%. Her reading has improved. Her confidence level is much better. Ann accessed her weaknesses and incorporates individual lessons to address her needs in spelling(with the rules) and reading. She loves Ann G.
Mrs. Ann is one of a kind! She is an encouraging tutor for my child. She has a way of teaching that he can relate to and progress with throughout life.
Ms.Ann works with you to find the best way to help your child. Always on time, always makes my daughter excited to go to her lessons.
My son needed help in his third grade and we felt in love with Mrs. Ann's highly professional method, patience and very warm personality!

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.
I have had experience teaching simple addition and subtraction and simple multiplication. I have taught students how to write their letters and numbers. I have taught phonics and reading and have had great success in bringing students who are behind up to and beyond grade level.
I teach the ABeka phonics charts to kindergarten and first and second grade students. I teach the sounds of the letters of the alphabet as well as blends, digraphs, and diphthongs using workbooks, games, and flash cards. The student and I work as a team to overcome the difficulties and reach new goals. I use a simple reward system as encouragement and it has worked well.
I use the phonetic approach to reading. We learn the sounds of the alphabet as well as blends, dipthongs, and diagraphs.
I also teach the most common sight words. I also teach word families. This shows the student that by changing one or two
letters they can read and know many more words.
Since I believe children learn better when the work is fun I use games to reinforce the words we are learning. I start below the student's reading level with easier books to instill confidence in the student and then gradually increase the difficulty level to keep them challenged. I also use simple rewards when I feel a student has tried very hard.
