About Becky

I am an educator with over 20 years of experience helping students to LOVE reading! I specialize in elementary school students in grades K-6, but have worked with middle school students, also. As a lover of learning, I have many degrees. In addition to my elementary teaching certificate and early childhood endorsement, I have a Master's Degree in Reading. I also have an administrative endorsement, and am currently working towards my Educational Specialist's Degree.

My practice is to first assess the student to learn about strengths and challenges, and then to create a customized plan to help that student excel. A student struggling in reading will typically have trouble primarily with either phonics or comprehension. Determining the primary concern will help the lessons to be most effective. Twenty minutes of daily reading (in addition to our session time) is an expectation.

I am passionate about reading and learning, and truly love working with children. Please contact me, and let's get your child moving in the right direction!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Handwriting

I have been an educator for twenty years, during which time I have taught handwriting. Daily practice is necessary in improving handwriting skills. The student must have sufficient fine motor skills and take his or her time in practicing.

Phonics

For the past fifteen years I have worked as an interventionist, helping students to improve their reading skills. Many students, particularly younger ones, will need additional instruction and support in the area of phonics in order to improve their reading skills. I have experience making the learning of phonics fun and engaging.
