Dawn is extremely patient. She takes the time out to see what your child is comfortable with and then finds out exactly what their weakness is. She works on their weakness until it is a strength. My 16 year old daughter did not want a tutor, she did not like math and said she couldn't do it. Now after a few short weeks with Dawn she has the confidence to approach problems and complete them successfully. We are extremely pleased with Dawn P. and will continue to use her.
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.
I have been teaching for 14 years. My experience ranges from 2nd grade to 8th grade. I am certified in elementary education K-6 and have a master's in literacy K-12. I have been trained in many different reading programs that aid in helping me address the challenges children may face as a reader/writer.
As an AIS teacher I have developed lessons that focus on improving reading, writing, and math skills. I have carefully employed strategies that prepare students to be successful on all the Common Core Standards. I am particularly attentive to the various modalities.
Currently, I service small group instruction in grades 2-5 daily. I also have experience working with middle school age students specializing in the same areas stated above. I have been a private tutor for the past 14 years in all subject areas as well as worked with students that are home schooled.
Everyday I look forward to helping students work through their academic challenges and achieve success.
