Hello, my name is Taneisha W. I have been an Early Childhood Educator for the last 16 years. I have taught Pre-K-second grade. I have been tutoring early childhood and elementary school students for the last 13 years.
I teach and tutor to help students achieve and make gains on their grade level. I believe in finding out a student's learning style and then tailoring a program to help that student succeed.
I believe that all students are capable of learning. However, all students will not necessarily learn in the same way on the same day. Therefore, I use strategies and methods that will be best for each individual student. I look forward to helping your child make gains and excel academically. Hello, my name is Taneisha W.

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 taught and worked with Common Core for two years when it was first introduced in this area. I also when through an extensive training to prepare me to be able to teach it. Common Core is a lot about using critical thinking skills and problem solving. I use this in my teaching whether using Common Core or not because I use Bloom's Taxonomy.
I first possess 13 years of experience teaching handwriting in Pre-k - 2nd grade. My strategies are to thoroughly go over the steps of the formation of each letter. I model first how to sit and hold the pencil or pen properly first. Then I explain where the letter lives on the lines and which type of lines are used to make that letter. From there I make the letter on the board and have the students talk through the formation of the letter then have them make it on their dry erase board. I give them plenty of time to practice in a variety of ways. Depending on the grade level, I have used shaving cream, confetti, buttons as well as handwriting worksheets. These strategies have been very successful for me.
I feel that I am qualified to tutor in the area of Phonics, first because of my 13 years plus experience teaching and tutoring in Phonics. I have worked with a variety of curriculums and have used several different approaches to successfully teach Phonics. When I teach Phonics I start off with the sounds that the alphabet letters make, before focusing on the names of the letters. I then focus on the short and long vowel sounds. Once students have mastered that then I go on to teaching blends and the special sounds. I also teach Phonics rules. I also teach short vowel and long vowel words. Students will gain a knowledge of Phonemic Awareness and how to decode words as well.
