Just a little about me. I've been in the business of educating children for at least 40 years. I began my career as a day care teaching aide. That is where I really got interested in the development of children. I went to college, got a few credits and was promoted to a full time assistant teacher. I later got promoted to head teacher I enjoyed assisting in the growth and development of children. I've tutored many students in all subjects. My last teaching experience before retiring was as the principal of a private school for 7 years until the school closed. The school served students K-8th grade.
I am a wife, mother of 2 adult daughters and I have a 3 year old grandson who i am currently introducing pre reading, writing and critical thinking skills I make learning fun! I have a great sense of humor. I have a smile that lights up a room (so I'm told??) I will show you how to enjoy your least enjoyable subject. I believe teaching is a divine calling and you must love what you do to ascertain the most success. If I'm your tutor you will have success but you'll also love the process--it will not be boring.
The thing that makes me an outstanding reading tutor is the fact that I understand that often children are being taught to read before they're ready and the reading techniques are often "one size fits all" as we can see by so many students unable to read that approach doesn't work. I take time to see what works for each student's success.
Common Core has become the latest curriculum used by the DOE. It really isn't that new, I am of the generation where students were taught Common Core and I also used this method of teaching when I homeschooled my now 24 year old daughter.
Throughout my years of early childhood education I taught handwriting/penmanship. I used many methods of pre writing skills, i.e. tracing, developing large and small motor skills.

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.
