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 attended ASU where I majored in Elementary Ed., graduating Magna Cumm Laude with a Praxis score in the top 5% on my Praxis. I have taught 2,3 and 6 grades. I am very familiar with EOGs and diebels assessment.

ESL/ESOL

My first experience in dealing with the ESL population was back in 1979. I worked with a family of Laotians. When their English became close to mastery we all went to McDonalds where they ordered their meals without any help. I have loved working with ESL students ever since. I have taught Adult ELS classes at our local community college. I often find that I learn as much from my students as they could ever learn from me!

Phonics

I have always been intrigued to words and their power when used appropriatedly. When I taught 2nd grade a had the honor of teaching Saxon Phonics. I would have put any of my 2nd graders up against Seniors in High School regarding their knowledge of phonics, history of the English language and learning from where one was at in their learning. My first teaching position was in reading remediation where I also taught phonics.
