About Rita

Helping students reach their potential is my passion. I have taught mathematics, science, reading, and writing to students and their teachers from kindergarten through high school.

I am certified to teach K-5 all subjects, 6-8th grade biology and reading. My degrees include a BS in Biology, Master of Arts in both Reading and Science Studies, and an EdS in Education Leadership. I also have extensive training and experience in the teaching of writing. I have worked with gifted as well as struggling students, English Language Learners, and identified special education students.

I have been a reading specialist with Masters degree credentials for Kindergarten through 8th grade. I have worked with students and teachers in their classrooms for over 10 years in grades three through 8. I am certified in the Strategic Instruction Model which is strategy based intervention based on student needs addressing study skills, complex thinking, reading, and writing.

I like to begin from where students are and set goals to guide our work. Students are involved in designing the learning plan. Playful work engages students in learning that meets their needs. Each session is based on one or more learning targets. The student and I will evaluate progress toward the learning target and set new achievement benchmarks. Please contact me for academic evaluation, study skills development, and academic acceleration.

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 have been a reading specialist with Master's degree credentials for Kindergarten through 8th grade. I have worked with students and teachers in their classrooms for over 10 years in grades three through 8. I am certified in the Strategic Instruction Model which is strategy based intervention based on student needs addressing study skills, complex thinking, reading, and writing.

Study Skills

In addition to being a certified Reading Specialist for grades K through 12, I have specialized training in the Strategic Instruction Model and Content Enhancement Routines developed by the University of Kansas Center for Research on Learning. These strategies help students learn to manage their learning independently leave and give them tools to be academically successful. Each student has unique needs and plays a role in determining which strategies they need to be independent and successful.
