About Liz

I am recently retired with 32 years of experience in various school systems of the Ozarks. I have experience in differentiated and special education instruction at all age and grade levels, as well as all disabilities. As well as classroom experience, I also have a wide variety of experience in after-school tutoring, home-bound instruction, and assessment (both diagnostic and standardized; individual and group). I have worked closely through these years with speech and language therapists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, and administrators.

I have tutored regular and special education students at all levels and in most subjects. I like to concentrate on a student's strengths, rather than dwell on their weaknesses, and teach them strategies and techniques to circumvent their weaknesses. I believe all students can be successful and have been highly successful in providing motivation at each individual's needs and abilities!

I can be flexible with days and times and offer makeup sessions with a 20 hour cancellation policy.

I can also be flexible with meeting facilities; coming to your home, or an otherwise agreed upon setting.

I look forward to providing each student with engaging and motivating lessons in order to be more successful in life!

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 have lifetime certification issued in May 1981 from the state of Missouri for Elementary Education (grades K-8)

I have 32 years of experience teaching in public schools, mostly at the cognitive level of grades K-6

I have 16 years experience giving modified standardized state assessments to special education students - this included preparing students to take the assessments, as well as reading the tests aloud to students in grades K-6 - so I am well aware of grade level expectations.

I have 32 years of experience working closely with regular educators as a resource for their special education students, as well as assisting in curriculum modification and alternative intervention strategies - was in and out of regular classrooms at the elementary level on a daily basis to observe students, as well as assist students and teachers.
