About Gill

I currently live in the University area of Charlotte and work in the Mint Hill area. I am open to tutoring close to my work, near the University area, or anywhere that would be on the drive home.

I have 12 years teaching experience and am currently a middle school teacher certified in Special Education, Middle School Language Arts, and Middle School Math. I am considered highly qualified in these subjects.
I am an experienced private tutor and have also worked at Sylvan Learning Center.

I utilize the SRA Corrective Reading program to help students improve their reading skills. It is a wonderful program that dramatically increases a student's decoding and fluency. If your child is reading several grades below grade level, utilizing this program will help tremendously.

I currently teach mathematics in a charter school to a group of students with learning disabilities. My students are in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. I teach the common core curriculum and also utilize the TransMath program in my classroom, as well as in my tutoring. It is one of the few programs specifically designed for struggling math students. For students still struggling with addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division, I find that the Touch Math system is extremely effective.

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.

ADHD

Over my 9 years experience teaching special education, I have taught students with ADHD every year. I currently work in the resource room designated for students with learning and behavioral difficulties in a middle school. There are several students with ADHD in my classes.

Elementary Math

I currently teach math to a group of students with learning disabilities. All my students are several grades below grade level. Therefore much of the math that I teach them is at the elementary level.

Phonics

I have passed the Praxis exam in Special Education and Language Arts. I utilize the Corrective Reading program, which is an intensive daily program that focuses on decoding, phonics, reading comprehension, and reading fluency. I have also taken the Reading Foundations course which teaches strategies in phonemic development for struggling readers.

Prealgebra

I currently teach 6th, 7th, and 8th, and grade math to a group of students with learning disabilities. My 8th graders are working through the Prealgebra curriculum and I have previously taught Algebra to a group of 9th graders.

Special Needs

I have 9 years experience teaching special education, including students with ADHD, Aspergers, and Dyslexia. I have passed the Praxis exam in Special Education, Language Arts, and Math and am considered highly qualified in all subjects.
