About Penny

I am an English and reading tutor with 15 years of teaching experience. I have a B.S. in Secondary Education, English, a Masters in Curriculum and Instruction, and a reading endorsement. I have done in-home tutoring for one year and after-school tutoring for five years. I specialize in grammar, writing, literature, proofreading, study skills, and reading. I use a variety of teaching styles and will develop a system that works the best for your child to be successful. I am flexible and can accommodate most hectic schedules. I played the clarinet for 8 years and took private lessons for 4 years. I could help a student who is a beginner with care of instrument, reed and mouth positioning, reading music, practicing scales, and basic musical scores. I do not own a clarinet anymore, but am willing to purchase one if I find several students who are interested in lessons. I am an English and reading tutor with 15 years of teaching experience.

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.

English

I am an English teacher with 17 years of classroom experience. I have taught English and reading to grades 9-12, writing to freshmen college students, reading in a one-on-one setting to elementary students, and many hours of writing and test prep to high school students.

Grammar

As an English teacher I have taught grammar as a part of every grade level. I can concentrate on problem areas with your student or we can work on grammar assignments. There are some helpful hints that I can offer to help improve a student's grammar skills and make it easier for him/her.

Literature

I am an English teacher with 17 tears of classroom experience. In my studies I have taken classes and read both long and short fiction and nonfiction selections. I have been an avid reader my entire life and love to curl up with a great book!

Phonics

As an English teacher I have taken linguistics and language acquisition classes that have prepared me to teach phonics. I have developed a variety of teaching methods to help students read and pronounce words by learning the phonetic make-up of single letters, groups of letters, and dividing words into syllables.

Proofreading

As an English teacher have proofread many different types of writing. I can help a student organize and "clean up" their piece of writing. I can correct grammar, spelling, and other mechanical errors to make the paper polished. I can help with content so the paper flows and reads professionally.

Reading

I have a reading endorsement (K-12) from Bowling Green State University. I have taught all levels of reading in my 17 years of experience. I can work in groups or one-on-one.

Study Skills

I have taught study skills to a variety of grade levels over my 17 years of teaching. I can help students with note taking, preparing for tests, getting organized, and other helpful hints to make a student more successful in all subject areas.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary has been a staple in the curriculums I have taught in my 17 years of experience. My test taking strategies helped when I tutored students for the ACT. I can create something that works for your student.

Writing

I am an English teacher with 17 years of classroom experience. I have taught all types of writing for graduation requirements and standardized testing. For more information look under proofreading.
