About Renee

I have a professional teacher's license in Michigan and in North Carolina. I am dedicated to each students’ academic and social-emotional success as well as the development of self-confidence and a passion for learning. I have trained in k-8 elementary education, have a k-12 Learning Disabilities endorsement and have Montessori certification for 1st through 3rd grades. I am currently pursuing an English as a Second Language Endorsement. I have worked with students from 2 to 14 years old and have worked in a bilingual school in China, as well as a Spanish/English dual immersion school in the U.S. I love children and I love to teach. I am very good at helping students with disabilities!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am qualified to teach students with ADD/ADHD because I have a k-12 Learning Disabilities endorsement from the state of Michigan. I have taught students with a variety of disabilities, including ADHD and ADD. Additionally, I have experience adapting curriculum for Attention Deficit students. In fact, one of my ADHD students attained gifted and talented status after working with me for a year.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a current professional teacher's license for k - 8 in the state of Michigan. I also hold a license in North Carolina. I have worked with teaching elementary students in a variety of capacities for 15 years.

Handwriting

I have taught students handwriting during Montessori teaching. I have used Handwriting Without Tears. Additionally, I developed a handwriting book for each of my students.

Phonics

Because I was trained in Elementary Montessori, in which reading is based on learning phonics, I have a strong background in phonics. Additionally, I taught phonics rules in my Montessori classrooms. I have also used phonics to teach second language learners.

Special Needs

I am qualified to teach students with special needs because I have a k-12 Learning Disabilities endorsement from the state of Michigan. I have taught students with a variety of disabilities. Additionally, I have experience adapting curriculum for special needs students.

Study Skills

Part of my training with Learning Disabilities has given me a good background with metacognitive skills. I used the teaching of study skills in a Middle School Special Education program that I developed, as well as with a High School student that I taught. Additionally, I taught my 5th grade students study skills, in both Language Arts as reading strategies but also in organization skills and test taking skills.
