I have a double major in Psychology and Physical Education. I also have an Elementary Education Endorsement. I have taught 3rd Grade and also tutored for several years, mostly at the elementary level and middle school levels. I love working one on one with students! I'm willing to help with homework, math skills or reading. I'm happy to work with your child in a quiet area of your home. If desired, I will also be in touch with your child's teacher to see what I can do specifically to meet their needs.
I have knowledge of the properties of grammar. I also have many strategies to use for reading and writing. Reading focus is on comprehension. Writing focus is on format and content.
An excellent elementary tutor has subject matter knowledge, is able to convey that knowledge in an interesting manner (when possible) and is a positive influence on your child.
Many times children don't like a subject because it is difficult for them. My goal is to do what I can to make learning fun and interesting for your child. I look forward to hearing from you and setting up a schedule for this fall. Let's make this school year a GREAT ONE!!
I look forward to working with your child!

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.
