About Charlotte

I have 20 years of teaching experience in science and other subjects, and presently am an environmental education teacher at Salt Springs Park in Montrose, Pa. My career has encompassed science teaching, junior college teaching, substitute teaching (12 years), school psychology and environmental science. I am also certified to teach reading through a certificate earned at Penn State. I am a certified teacher with current updates through Act 48 credits. I also tutor members of my family, including a niece preparing for the CNA exam. I am a devoted mother and grandmother who raised 3 doctors and am working educationally with my 3 young grandchildren. I have a love for children and animals (I volunteer at the local animal shelter), and I am convinced that education is paramount in the lives of children.

Update: As of 2014 I have taken three courses: "An Introduction To Teaching ESL/EFL, Response to Intervention: Strategies That Work, and Reading Apprenticeship".
Currently I am tutoring online and in person. My students are preparing for the SATs And the ACT Test. They made significant progress. Reading at all age levels is available. I continue to study in these subject areas to keep myself current.

Currently (2016), I continue to teach environmental science and tutor through Wyzant. I am working on an online course entitled, "Effective Strategies Supporting Language Arts Instruction". This involves teaching to the Core with the newest educational strategies available.

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 am a certified teacher, holding two master's degrees, plus certification as a school psychologist,and presently teach environmental science. I am also a certified reading teacher, and have worked extensively with elementary school children in all capacities. Presently, I present science lessons to elementary school children, which also involves a measure of mathematics. I continue to take education courses to keep abreast of advances in science and reading education.

Phonics

I have a certificate for teaching reading from Penn State, and I have been tutoring in reading and other subjects for many years. In addition, I take reading courses at both Marywood University in Scranton, Pa., and courses at our local Intermediate Unit. Presently, I am taking an on-line course entitled: "Response to Intervention, Reading Strategies That Work". In Lesson 4 of the course we are learning about phonics instruction. One of the interventions is a phonics gamed called "Making Words". It uses a set of tiles to help student identify and form short words. They use these words to build on to form even longer words. The game includes using six basic spelling patterns: closed words, open words, silent e words, vowel team words, r controlled words and consonant le words. You start by using a small word as "it" and then build on the word as "sit", and "bit", and then add an "e" and you have "bite" You lead the student to build and spell larger and larger words. This is just one of the interventions I am learning regarding phonics.

Reading

I currently am involved in reading classes both at Marywood University and Intermediate Unit 19. I also have a certificate to teach reading from Penn State University. I have tutored students in reading over the past several years, and feel confident that I can help students in this regard. I am a certified teacher who is updated in obtaining Act 48 credits, and I have all clearances regarding any background checks.

Study Skills

I have been an educator and tutor for over 20 years. I have helped students in their study skills for an equal amount of time. Currently, I am helping my niece to pass her CNA exam. I have helped her pass the prerequisite CNA course (6 weeks duration) by developing her study skills. Some of the techniques I used were previewing the material to be learned, underlining and highlighting important aspects of the subject matter, making notes and flash cards, and rereading and reviewing the material periodically. She passed the course and is now ready to sit for the CNA license. Having these experiences, as mentioned above, I feel qualified to help students develop good study habits.
