About Johnie

I am a Certified Teacher in the State of Oklahoma, with experience in classroom teaching, tutoring, and volunteering to teach reading to homeless children. I have been working as a Teacher/Tutor at a nationally recognized tutoring center for the past year. I tutor beginning readers and upper classes from iPad tablets. I teach phonics.

I was a full time classroom teacher in Enid Public Schools, Enid, Oklahoma, in a 3rd grade classroom for four years. For four years I was a Title 1 teacher. From June 2014 to present I've worked for Sylvan Learning as a teacher. I worked in the Putnam City School District as a Substitute in Elementary – K-12 teacher for high school and middle school, mainly teaching special needs and bilingual students in reading, math and grammar. Before that, I was a substitute teacher in elementary schools in the Oklahoma City Public School District, teaching reading, math and other subjects.

I am also an actor and have performed in Community Theatre in OKC, Enid, Oklahoma and Children's Theatre in Dallas, Texas. I have done film work as a lead extra and training films while in Dallas, and also have done film work in Oklahoma City. I have also volunteered as a tutor/mentor for Positive Tomorrows. I am interested in history and have done volunteer work for the Oklahoma History Center.

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.

I taught the Palmer Method in 3rd grade. Cursive writing. Handwriting develops small motor skills in the hands, arms and shoulders. Eye/hand coordination. Handwriting legibly aids reading, spelling, and communication. It develops the brain and body in communicating in all areas like reading, writing and comprehension.

Sylvan Method and Club z along with the Common Core Program.

My background experience is in teaching, theater, and other forms of literature learning to read foreign language using the Latin vowel sounds to aid the student to know the basic sound for phonics with the long vowel sound. I learned to sing in Latin through years of voice lessons.
I have two degrees in elementary education and theater education, learning to speak and read in smooth phonically correct sounds.
