About Margaret

Hello! My name is Margaret Y. and I have been an Elementary School Teacher for over 5 years in the Metro Detroit area. I have taught first, second, and third grades. Currently, I am working on my Master's of Education (with a Reading Specialist Endorsement). I have been thoroughly trained in DRA, Everyday Mathematics, and 6+1 Traits for Good Writers. In my tutoring sessions, you will find that I will pinpoint exactly where your student is at and move forward from there. I will make it a point to find what your child is interested in and make it a part of the lesson as best I can. I have found that when a child is interested in the lesson, they will do much better. I look forward to working with you and your child! Hello! My name is Margaret Y. and I have been an Elementary School Teacher for over 5 years in the Metro Detroit area.

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 am a certified Elementary School Teacher. I have taught first, second, and third grade. I have been trained in DRA, Everyday Mathematics, and 6+1 Traits for Good Writers. I plan to use leveled guided reading books, flash cards, and math games in my tutoring sessions. Each student will be assessed at the beginning and periodically throughout our sessions for growth.

Elementary Math

Hello! My name is Margaret and I am a certified and highly qualified teacher. Currently, I teach first grade. Before that, I taught third and second grade as well. I have been trained in Everyday Mathematics and have utilized this program for the past 4 years. In tutoring sessions involving math, I will plan fun games that keep your child engaged while learning. I also will assess your child at the beginning and throughout our sessions so that you can see the progress he or she is making.

Phonics

As a certified Elementary School Teacher (K-5), I teach phonics on a daily basis. To do this, I incorporate a program called Abeka. It focuses on word families as well as pictures and songs that make phonics fun.

Reading

I have been an Elementary School Teacher for eight years in the Detroit area and am currently working on my Master's of Education with Reading Specialist Endorsement. I have been fully trained in DRA and running records. I will make it a point to choose books your child is interested and assess him throughout our sessions so that you can see the progress that is being made. Reading is a combination of fluency, comprehension, and writing in response to text. I will be sure to incorporate all of these into our sessions.
