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.

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 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.
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.
