About Elanna

I am a retired elementary school teacher who worked in the Circleville City School System, My expertise is in Reading/Language Arts, but I am also qualified to tutor math and other elementary school subjects. I am certified in Reading Recovery, which is an intensive one on one tutoring system that is designed to take students who are at the bottom of their class and accelerate their progress so that they actually learn faster than their peers, and finish the program at the average of their class.

One of my strengths as a teacher is my ability to get "inside the head" of my student and diagnose what is going wrong with the way they are approaching the subject. I can then tailor my instruction to teach them appropriate strategies to be successful.

I have an Ohio K-8 elementary teaching certificate with a K-12 Reading validation. I have a Master of Education degree specializing in Reading/Language Arts and 30+ years of experience in this area.

I am a highly qualified tutor with many years of experience. If you have a struggling student, I would love to hear from you.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an Ohio permanent K-8 teaching certificate with a K-12 reading validation. I have a Master's degree in Education with a specialization in Reading/Language Arts. I have 30+ years of work experience in education in the State of Ohio, teaching at the elementary level and serving as a Reading Supervisor in the Delaware County Office of Education.

Elementary Math

I have found that using concrete objects and real life situations is one of the best ways to communicate mathematical concepts to students. Once they grasp the concept behind a mathematical operation, problem solving becomes easy.

Reading

Choosing the right reading materials for tutoring is key in my opinion. The student needs material that is difficult enough to present opportunities for learning and applying new strategies, but not so difficult that the student becomes frustrated and loses track of the meaning of what s/he is reading.

I have an extensive library of reading materials at all levels and try choose material at just the right level of difficulty and that match the students interests.

Spanish

I took Spanish in high school and college and always enjoyed it. After I retired as as Elementary teacher, I decided to go back to school and regain my Spanish proficiency. I have taken more than 14 Spanish courses at OU Chillicothe and OSU in the last nine years. I have especially enjoyed participating in "conversation tables" at OSU where I am able to converse in Spanish one on one or in a small group with native Spanish speakers from many countries.
