About Ilka

I hold a Masters degree with a specialization in remedial reading and have been tutoring reading and writing for over 20 years. I also have a Masters degree in Library and Information Science. Searching for relevant information is very important when writing a paper for college, high school or elementary school. My training as a librarian and researcher has provided me with experience in finding important resources for students. I am familiar with informative and reliable databases and am proficient in helping students organize and research papers. I have taught remedial reading, study skills, grammar and writing in community college. As a volunteer, I taught citizen ship preparation to new immigrants whose English language skills were not yet developed.

My elementary school experience includes teaching remedial reading in public school in New York, and serving as a first , second, third and fifth grade teacher. For the past five years I have been tutoring remedial reading including phonics, vocabulary, spelling and finding the main idea in reading passages. I am interested in expanding my tutoring base and am therefore looking for new students.

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.

Handwriting

I have taught handwriting in grades 1-3 when I was an elementary school teacher. I taught handwriting as a substitute teacher in Beachwood last week. I know how cursive letters should be formed.

Hebrew

I attended a Jewish day school for 12 years. I have continued my Hebrew language study as an adult. I studied Hebrew on a high school and adult education level. I catalogue Hebrew books.

Phonics

I have a Masters degree in education with a specialization in remedial reading. I have taught phonics both as tutor and as a teacher for grade 1-3. I used phonics when I taught as a Title I tutor. Even though phonics has gone in and out of favor, I strongly believe that phonics is an important skill for any reader to master.
