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.

Common Core

I have been trained in the Common Core. I have attended many workshops about the Common Core and how to teach it. I have taught the Common Core Standards and also spent a lot of time aligning the Common Core standards to our State standards in New Hampshire. I have many Common Core resources that I can use with students.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been an elementary teacher for 30 years. I have taught every grade level K-4. My strength is working with this age level. I have had 5 years of experience tutoring after school in addition to my teaching experience.

Handwriting

Handwriting has always been one of my best subjects. I have been trained in several different approaches to teach handwriting. I believe strongly that handwriting is the basis for fine motor coordination and is an important subject in schools.

Phonics

As a Reading Specialist and a former Title 1 Coordinator, I have had extensive training in the area of phonics. I have used the phonetic approach with many students (including ESL) and seen how well it works. I am also training in Orton-Gillingham and the Wilson approach to teaching phonics. I have many games and strategies that I have accumulated over the years.

Great tutor

Janine was very organized, and I was impressed with her structured lesson. She took the time to get to know my child's interests and pinpointed his learning strengths and weaknesses. I look forward to seeing my child's progress.
