I am a retired teacher, whose students have included Preschoolers, Kindergarteners, and early Elementary age children. I have tutored with a local learning center; with AmeriCorps; with AARP Experience Corps, as well as the St. Paul Public Schools. In addition I spent 5 years as a Daycare Director/Preschool teacher. I specialize in phonics, early literacy skills, decoding and beginning reading skills. I particularly enjoy tutoring one to one, and bring a wide variety of materials with me (leveled stories, literacy games, manipulatives) to tutoring sessions to reinforce needed concepts for beginning or struggling students, and to keep the lessons interesting and fun.
If your student is struggling with letter recognition, letter sounds, blending, sight words, decoding, spelling, and other literacy skills standard for Pre-K through 3rd grade, we may be a good match in a tutoring partnership.

Wendie was super! My son loved her. When she left he asked when she would be coming back! She was patient, kind, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with.
Wendie is very knowledgeable and patient. In addition, she encouraged my son and he had a lot of fun while learning. I recommend Wendi for any one that that's looking for quality.
She is helping my son become a more confident reader. She is always very positive and encouraging. She also has material that we can take home and practice with.
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.
