About Loretta

You can succeed and it's my job to get you there. I work to discover your strengths and weakness, and determine where you want or need to be.
As an educator I've worked in many learning environments for over 30 years: public and private schools, Sunday Schools, homeschooling groups and community classes; teaching children, teens and adults.

I worked as a Spanish Teacher for the Academy of Christian Leadership, and most recently for several years as a substitute teacher in the Cohoes & Colonie school districts serving in elementary, middle and high schools in various subjects - most often Spanish and Math. What I enjoy best is working 1-on-1, seeing the student learn to love learning and make steady progress even if the subject is tough or less than a favorite.

My Bachelor's degree is in foreign language, yet my expertise is not limited to Spanish and Italian. I really like seeing the "AHA" moment when my student gets that next new concept, as I have subbing for the Reading specialist. I have dozens of thriving successes as proof, & they are happy to grant you references.

For fun I do crochet, sew, and other needle arts - and I give lessons there too!

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.

Bible Studies

I've written Sunday School curriculum and taught adults and children for over 30 years. This has been in several churches during High School, College and since graduating. I teach privately friends and neighbors, and have taught for groups as well.

Phonics

I've taught phonics as a standard basis for all writing and reading. Personally I've used the curriculum from Bob Jones University Press and from A Beka. Both lead students to master reading concepts quickly, easily and systematically. There truly is a method to the madness of our English language!
