` Are you having problems in reading or English class? Is it reading comprehension or reading smoothly without mistakes? Is it writing without panicking or being able to stay on topic? There are lots of areas that can cause problems in this school subject, but not to worry! I am here to help! I've been at this for over 30 years and have a really good track record in helping students overcome every kind of problem you can think of!
I've recently retired from teaching ELA in Louisiana, and I have an EdD from LSU-Shreveport. My students always do very well on state testing--I know, YUK--as well as the next grade in school, especially if they do their part and work hard!
Our tutoring times will, of course, be determined by your age, grade, and areas of concern. If you need help in reading, we will spend lots of time reading aloud to one another and together to make sure you read smoothly AND understand what you read. There are several ways to accomplish this, such as Buddy Reading, Close Reading, relating to background, visualizing, and listening to excellent reading. Practice in reading=perfection in reading! If, on the other hand, you need help in writing, we will find ways to overcome writers' block and make your writing interesting and grammatically correct using 6+ Writing techniques.
One reason students don't do well on reading and writing tests and English class is that they don't have confidence in their own abilities. We want to kick all uncertainties out the door! We want to make reading and writing something you enjoy instead of dreading! We want to get you ready for tests and the next grade in school, whether it's college or third grade!
Finally, remember that Attitude is Everything here! Don't feel bad about getting help for yourself in any school subject! Even college students receive tutoring in their classes sometimes. Also remember that the amount of success you'll have in school will depend on the amount of work you put in. The best teachers in the world can't help you if you aren't willing to do your part. But you and your parents will be so glad when you come see me, tackle your problems, work hard, and gain the confidence you need AND deserve!
I hope to see you soon! ` Are you having problems in reading or English class? Is it reading comprehension or reading smoothly without mistakes? Is it writing without panicking or being able to stay
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.
