About CHARLES

I am a retired special education teacher of emotionally and mentally impaired students, with a master's degree from University of Michigan. As such, I taught just about every subject at the elementary and middle-school level. I strongly believe everyone learns differently, and therefore feel that individualized instruction is the only way to go with remedial work.

While at the university, I majored in mathematics for a time--mostly Calculus. My love of math and problem solving has been re-kindled while tutoring students in Algebra and Geometry for the past two years.

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 am a certified Special Education teacher in the state of Michigan. My Bachelor of Science degree included extensive course work and certification in Elementary Education as well as student teaching on that level in a regular classroom. While most of my classroom teaching of twenty years was on a middle-school level, I did teach elementary school one year and, certainly while in middle school, reviewed and remediated elementary level subject matter in all subjects with my students.

Phonics

In the course of my 20 years in Special Education, I taught Reading and Study Skills to many students - both elementary and middle school. My reading instruction included phonics as well as other methods.

Reading

In the course of my 20 years in Special Education, I taught Reading and Study Skills to many students - both elementary and middle school.

Special Needs

I have a B.S. in Special Education. I taught Special Education in Elementary and Middle Schools for 18 years. The WyzAnt students I have been tutoring in Mathematics, while not severely challenged, both have special needs--chiefly dyslexia.
