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 am able to have students practice writing the letters the right way by using a handwriting book. This is a way for the students to learn exactly how the letters should be written for both upper case and lower case letters. I make sure the students master how to write the letter before going on and teaching the next one.

Phonics

I use MaxScholar which is an Orton Gillingham program. This program is great for students to be able to see the letter, say the sound, and recognize a picture that starts with the sound. This is an interactive program that helps the students see visually and also helps them kinesthetically. There is also a workbook portion that reteaches what was taught in the interactive portion. It has helped the students in my classroom improve their letter and sound recognition and also improve their reading levels.

Study Skills

I am a certified elementary education teacher in New York and New Jersey. I am very passionate about teaching and am very confident in the way I teach. I want students to succeed in the classroom. It is very important for students to be able to have study skills at home, so that they are able to produce their work in the classroom and know exactly what to do.
