About Collette

I have been teaching for more than 20 years. I have tutored children in elementary-level reading and Math. I like helping children learn tips to comprehend what they have learned. I like to play education games to help children have fun while learning. I have experience tutoring children who have IEPs. My goal is to have children learn, grow in knowledge and have fun while learning.

I like to find books, articles and Internet stories on topics the children are interested in so that reading becomes part of every day instead of not wanting to read. I look for words in the reading that they can use so they comprehend what they are reading.

I am available during the day during summer and after school during the school year.

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.

Handwriting

I currently teach at-risk pre-k students. I find many have limited exposure to writing, drawing, cutting, squeezing. All of these opportunities previously mentioned enhance eye hand coordination. I also use tongs for picking up items for dexterity and play dough for making letters and using hands and fingers. I use program "Handwriting Without Tears" to help students write letters on paper. I then give them opportunity to use pen, pencil, marker and crayons to write with (based on child's development and comfort zone). I break crayons and use golf pencils to help children become more comfortable with tripod grasp when writing.
