About Ali

I have been teaching for 5 years, and I love it! I am currently working on my doctoral degree in Educational Leadership, and I am spending lots of time working with my professors to help make reading with the school system more successful. I am certified in elementary education, reading, and special education. I have taught both elementary school and secondary. and I feel comfortable teaching every grade from kindergarten through 8th.

I tailor my instruction to the student- I find the best books and create the best activities that motivate the students, and make them feel excited about learning. I focus on all aspects of reading, since they are all so important. I work on decoding, vocabulary, comprehension, fluency and writing. My specialty is working with students who really struggle or really dislike reading- these are the students I have worked with tutoring for the past 3 years; I feel so passionate about helping them boost their confidence and feel success with their own skills. I have lots of experience working with students with autism in reading and study skills, and am also comfortable working with students who need to develop English skills.

I do not use store-bought worksheets or workbooks- my rate is $60 because I will create everything I do with the student from scratch, because no two students need the same reading instruction. I love doing what I do, and I am confident I can help your student be more successful inside and outside of the classroom! Please don't hesitate to email with any questions. Thanks, Ali

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.

ADD/ADHD

Certificated in special ed - have been working with kids and adults with ADD for the last 5 years. Have experience working on behavior management plans as well as academic plans.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a master's in special education, with an endorsement in reading and have passed the PRAXIS II test in elementary education with an exceptional score. I subbed for a year in elementary and then taught as head of a 3/4 combined class for a year. I understand what kids learn from k-6th and am familiar with the development of reading and all content areas.

Phonics

I have a master's in special education (focus on elementary), and an endorsement in reading. I teach a Foundations of Reading class at the college level. I have tutored students in the area of phonics for the past six years.

Reading

I was adjunct faculty at Appalachian State University in the reading department. I hold a master's in education (reading, special education). I was a private tutor for six years. I work in a reading clinic at ASU. I was a reading teacher for the last four years. I LOVE children and believe in tutoring as best way to help them.

Special Needs

I taught special ed for 3 years. I was a full-time case manager for 30 students per year, in charge of writing and managing their IEPs as well as serving as their teacher and communicating with other teachers and parents. I have my Master's in Special Ed from University of Washington.

Study Skills

As a special ed teacher for 3 years, I had students on my caseload that qualified for study skills. I was in charge of making plans for them based on their needs- organization, behavior, etc. I also worked for a year with 2 students at their home to get organized in study skills, helping them make the transition from school to home and back again with all of their materials organized and ready to turn in.
