A little about me. I have a BA in Political Science and a JD in Law from Southern University In Baton Rouge, Louisiana.
I have 5 years as a substitute teacher, 12 years as an office manager and 20 years of customer service experience. I will go the extra mile to make sure the children understand what is expected of them. I have worked with Club Z In-Home tutoring service hired by Lincoln Public Schools. I tutored in the areas of Math and reading (elementary grades). I work with my grand kids in the areas I tutor and they are all very good students with mostly A's and B's.
As far as tutoring, I have about 5 years experience. Most of my substitute teaching was in high school in the areas of English and math. I am a widow , mother of 2 daughters who gave me 5 grandsons.
I work with children with materials from their schools as well as flash cards and books. I play games to get them interested, give tests, correct papers. If errors are made, I try to get them to tell me why something is wrong.
I have worked with children from elementary to high school.
One of the main problems in reading is subject verb agreement and knowing how to write the plural of a word. I also work with pronunciation. If a child cannot pronounce a word, I ask him to try and pronounce it using phonics and if
he/she gets it wrong, I will correct him/her. I ask them to write stories to try and show how a paragraph, etc. should flow. Give The main thought and build from there.
In math, I find that children get division and multiplication mixed up, and they are the opposite of each other. I have worked with a lot of Latino's and have done flash cards to show the difference. I have also done time tables from 1-10 and just asked randomly, how much is 6x8 and then change to 8x6 to see if they really understand. I do basic addition and subtraction. I do division the same as multiplication. In addition and subtraction math, I start out with single digits and go to four digits, depending on grade of child. I review previous session highlights at the beginning of each session to measure comprehension. At the end of each session I review what has been taught. A little about me. I have a BA in Political Science and a JD in Law from Southern University In Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

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.
I have done substitute teaching from elementary through high school. From 2010-2011, I was an in-home tutor working with LPS, tutoring the subjects of math and reading. I worked, with grades 1-4. This was very rewarding and watching the students progress was awesome. Once 24 sessions as required by the school system were completed the child was on or above grade level. This was working with Title I schools.
I've worked with high school students on composition and getting a paper to flow (developing the main thought and expanding) as well as sentence and verb agreement and pronunciation.
