******Areas of Expertise: Elementary Reading, Writing, Grammar, Spelling, & Math. Can tutor any Elementary Subject. Also taking Adult Students in these areas as well.****** Are you looking for somebody who is organized, dependable, and who can be flexible to tutor your child? I have a B.S. in Elementary Education from Penn State University, graduating as the Valedictorian of my class with a 3.94 GPA. I have 25 years of experience combined with tutoring, substitute teaching and I have also held a permanent substitute position for a 3rd grade class. I have taught students from Sweden, China, Poland, and most recently, Spain. Very rewarding! I have also been called many times to work with a special needs class, and also had five special needs students in my homeroom and science/social studies classes.

My teaching style is laid back. I deal well with students who need someone who is calm. I am very good at explaining details, and very good at making the lessons relaxed and non-threatening. My goal is to make my students feel at ease and to enjoy the learning process. I am so excited to see the fruits of my labor when a student finally "gets it." It is a very rewarding job.

If you are interested in working with me, please contact me and I will return your correspondence in a timely manner to set up our lesson times.

Sincerely,
Rhonda

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

My BS Degree is from Penn State University in PA. I was the valedictorian of the class of 92. I have 25 years experience in tutoring Elementary Students from grades K-6, working with students who need remedial work in reading, writing, spelling, grammar, English, math, social studies, & science. My students consistently increase their skill level, their grades, & their enjoyment in subjects they once disliked. I have also subbed in learning support classes in the elementary level, and was called regularly because they told me I had a "calming influence" on the children. All of my experiences have enabled me to gain a more rounded understanding of the elementary curriculum and have helped me better understand the different grade levels. If you are looking for a compassionate & patient tutor, please message me today to set up a session!

Phonics,

Phonics

I have 25 years experience in teaching/tutoring Elementary Phonics. My students have consistently increased their skillset and grades.

I have also worked with English-Second-Language students over the years.

Study Skills,

Study Skills

I have a degree in Elementary Education and have worked with grades K-6 as well as secondary students & adults in the area of study skills. One of my most rewarding experiences was working with a young man who needed to improve his grades in order to graduate high school. After a lot of hard work in various subjects, including study skills, he improved his grades enough to graduate! I have also given standardized tests to Elementary Students and taught various study skills in order to do well on these tests. In most subjects, it seems that study skills have been interwoven, either directly, or indirectly into the curriculum. My teaching method is to introduce an appropriate study skill when the moment allows, thus, making it more relevant to the student. I feel that part of this topic is also discovering what type of learner you or your child is- visual, auditory, or kinesthetic. This helps determine what kind of activity will most help you or your child retain the information. I love to see students learn how to learn and would love to work with you or your child in this important area!
