About Evie

I would love the opportunity to inspire your student to read!

Developing games and other materials that make it more interesting for your student to learn, has been my passion. These games provide great reinforcement for the skills I am teaching. I play a game that practices needed skills near the end our time together. This becomes a reward for great work. We will also spend some time reading at the student's appropriate reading level. If you would like homework, I could provide it.

I believe in meeting each student exactly where he/she is and building from there. I have reading materials and games at each grade level through 4th grade. For example, if your student is in 4th grade but is reading at a 1st grade level, I have stories that are at 4th grade interest but 1st grade reading level. Focusing on missing skills, whatever the
student's age, opens doors to fantastic reading!

Teaching students to read has been something I have done in many different settings. Recently, I taught 1st grade for 12 years, becoming the go-to tutor for struggling readers. One of the students was a 3rd grader who had not mastered her short vowels. She made rapid progress! Earlier, my 3 daughters wanted to be taught at home, so I spent several years teaching them. It was great learning experience for all of us!

I have a BS in Education from Calvin College, Grand Rapids, MI.

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.

Phonics

After graduating from college, I taught phonics to pre-schoolers. Then I taught phonics to my 3 daughters at home. At a catholic school, I taught phonics to stuggling students for half an hour at a time. For the next 12 years, I taught a very intensive phonics curriculum at Community Christian School.
