About Bessie

Hello, I have been in some aspect of the teaching field for over 25 years. I graduated from East Carolina University with a Bachelor's Science degree in Elementary Education K-6 and minored in reading. I enjoy motivating and teaching, also helping students learn how to improve reading skills. Specializing in reading K - college, building vocabulary and comprehension skills, reading passages and selecting the correct answers for questions, process of elimination, study island and helping students prepare for EOG's are some of the techniques I use during tutoring sessions. Actually, will be glad to help in any area such as science, history and k-3 math. My love for children and education motivate me as I help students learn in a positive environment, so they succeed in school and life. Thank you.

My love for children's literature and reading in general are motivators for my success with students. I have taught kindergarten through college level reading. I student taught first grade and I have taught kindergarten, 1st, 2nd and 3rd grades, as well as reading at the middle school level. Teaching reading at Pitt Community College was a highlight in my career as a reading specialist.

I majored at ECU in Elementary Education K-6 and received a reading certificate when I graduated. I worked very hard in college and graduated cum laude. I received an excellent education at ECU and especially in the area of reading in levels K-college.

I believe phonics gives children an excellent base for sounding out sounds and words such as consonants, vowels, and the alphabet in general. I also believe in working on students' writing skills by learning how to write complete sentences and incorporating good grammar. The whole language approach is excellent also mingled with phonics. I teach students six tools for sounding out words and can be used at any level. These six steps include: sounding out words phonetically, root words, prefixes, suffixes, syllables and using context clues to figure out words students do not know. I have seen many students succeed by using these tools for figuring out words on their own without a dictionary. As you see, I have a passion for teaching phonics and reading.

I would like to encourage you as a student to contact me and learn more as a positive and motivated tutor. Reading is
the road to success and is so fun!
