I am currently only conducting online lessons. I specialize in teaching all of the English language arts including articulation, phonics, spelling, grammar, reading comprehension, reading, vocabulary and writing. I have a down to earth, relate-able, friendly style, but I also plan my lessons well and am able to cover a lot of ground during a session if the student is motivated to learn. I use a variety of curriculum that meets core standards as well as creating some of my own. I am dependable and hard-working. I am passionate about teaching and I believe EVERYONE can learn! My ideal student is between 3rd and 10th grade or an adult ESL student. I have been a tutor on WyzAnt since late 2018, and prior to that, I was a professional reading and spelling tutor working with children who had various learning difficulties. I use a as many different sensory methods as I am able to online to help my students learn and progress. I have worked with students from as young as kindergarten all the way through the adult level. My favorite tutoring subjects are reading and phonics!

As a babysitter in my teens, a nanny in my twenties and a foster parent in my forties, I have assisted many young people with their homework. I've had tutoring experience as early as the 4th grade when I was chosen by my teacher to tutor 1st grade students. I joined the Future Teachers of America club in high school and was sent to the elementary schools to teach under the supervision of the homeroom teacher. I was a teacher's aide in high school and also tutored other students in World Geography and English. I attended college in my 30's and graduated at the top of my class with a 3.89 GPA from Regent University with a BS in Psychology. I have reviewed and advised other college level students on their papers.

Vocabulary

Ever since I was a child, I have exercised my vocabulary skills. We played Scrabble as a fierce competition and went to the library on a weekly basis. In junior high, I enjoyed competing with my Dad on the Reader's Digest vocabulary quizzes and reading product labels just to see if I could pronounce them. In high school, I took two years of Latin and asked for medical journals for Christmas! I love words, and I can help your student build his or her vocabulary!

Excellent and dedicated

Ms Naomi tutored both my kids, 10yo and 7yo, over the past summer. She went above and beyond to develop their reading and writing skills. And she showed genuine care and concern for their growth and development. She was excellent.

Tutor responded:

Thank you so much. It was such a pleasure and an honor to work with your kids. They are both amazing, sweet and so bright!!

Learning so much!

Naomi is very patient with my son. She is very knowledgeable in each lesson and offers many ways to teach around what he learning at the moment. We love her methods, and she gets through to him because she is understanding while having the ability to push him in a gentle way. He really loves working with her and never feels overwhelmed as he usually does. Highly recommend!

Great Tutor !

She made the session fun and informational, was a fantastic first lesson. Naomi definitely knows how to connect with her student, which relaxed her student so they were able to get down to work quickly. She was also very patient as we had a few computer glitches, which was resolved quickly.

super teacher

My son had a great first session! Naomi was friendly and welcoming and put us right at ease. I love how patient she was in asking the questions and letting him answer and ask as well. Very knowledgeable and able to present information at his level. She really cares about her students and wants to see them succeed. We are so blessed to have found this gem.

Rebekah , 3 lessons with Naomi
Tutor responded:

It was wonderful to meet you both. I love it when the parents are interested and involved. I'm looking forward to working with your son again!

Ow an ou sound

The "ou" and "ow" sounds don't come easily to pronounce for me. But I train, like for the "th" sound and the "a" sound. Thank you for your lessons, my English pronunciation sounds better and people understand me when I speak. I hope to speak fluently soon with your help.

You are doing an excellent job! I think you are growing more every session!
