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.

Common Core

I have years of experience with the new common core curriculum. I attended several workshops that have taught how students need common core curriculum to succeed in life.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have 10 years of teaching experience with grades K-8. I have experience in common core curriculum and I use several techniques that can accommodate all learning styles.

Handwriting

I have experience teaching handwriting as an elementary teacher. I started out my mornings with my students working in their handwriting books. I also use several methods for students that have difficulty with writing. These include students with disabilities that have trouble with large/small writing, issues holding pencils, etc.

Homeschool

I have experience with several homeschooling programs and curriculum. I have tutored several homeschooled children. The 1:1 instruction allows them the necessities to learn the materials required to be successful.

Phonics

I have several years of experience with teaching children phonics and phonemic awareness. Allowing children the ability to understand phonics will help them with reading, which in turn, helps with all subjects. I use many different learning styles and activities to teach phonics to my students.

Reading

I have many years of experience with teaching students how to read. I use several different learning approaches to deliver the content they need in order to comprehend what they read. My lessons are all interactive and fun to enhance the child to want to learn.

Special Needs

I have a masters degree in special education. I have worked with students with special needs in a public school since 2008. There are several approaches I take when teaching children with special needs that will allow them to learn the best way possible!

Study Skills

Study skills are an essential part of learning. I can teach your child how to study so they can transfer the knowledge into everyday learning. Having good study skills will boost test scores and the quality of everyday assignments.
