About Bev

My teaching experience includes 15 years in the public schools as a certified teacher (substitute teacher) and an educational assistant/special education assistant. Initially, I received my California Teaching Credential,(I have updated with an Oregon Teaching Credential), with the intention of teaching my own class, but I have found that my preference is geared towards the individual student's needs.

Over the years I have worked with both students who were struggling in the classroom and tutored students with had mild-moderate learning difficulties. I have lead remedial math/reading groups and lesson plans were adapted to peak the interest and needs of each student. My strengths include patience, compassion, positive feedback, and ability to modify lessons to meet the student's interest/needs.

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 worked with K-6th grade students, both as a classified worker (in California and in Oregon) and as a certified substitute teacher (in California). I am in the process of renewing my teaching license in Oregon.

Elementary Math

I work in a Resource Room (grades 1-5). Children have both reading/math challenges).

Phonics

I currently work in a resource room with special needs children (grade 1-5th) using phonic based programs (ex. "Explode the Code") for the last two years.

In addition, I have worked, in the past, for Huntington Learning Center (California), as a one-on-one teacher with multiple students using their phonics based reading program.

For the last year, I have used Phonics based curriculum during my reading sessions as a tutor for Wyzant. I addressed: beginning/middle/end consonants, short/long vowels, consonant blends, digraphs (th, wh, sh, ch, kn) and vowel combinations (ea, ie, ow, aw).

I feel that I am well experienced to use a phonics approach to teach reading to elementary students.

Reading

I work in a Resource Room with children Grades 1-5, who have challenges in reading. I use a phonics based curriculum with my children and gave seen much growth in their reading skills.
