Lansdale School of Business (Business management)
As a mother of three grown children & a grandmother of four young children, I am familiar with the balancing act of raising a family, running a household, holding down a job, and still finding the time and having the energy to help a struggling child with learning. We, as adults, can become overwhelmed. Children can experience the same feeling, and it can translate into poor grades and difficulty learning, which can translate into low self esteem and resistance to school work. As a fellow parent, I commend you on your decision to stop the downward spiral of your student-- it is one decision that will benefit your child for the rest of his or her life.
I have 17 years experience as a TSS, where I worked one on one with children in the classroom. Many of my clients struggled due to a diagnosis on the autism spectrum. Others had a diagnosed learning disability, and still others were typical children who were just having a hard time with reading, or grasping concepts in the language arts. I have been able to help every child I have worked with, including those having autism, some of whom were nonverbal. I was a reading tutor for 5 years with the Carbon County Volunteers for Literacy, and tutored adult learners in my home. I currently tutor one of my own grandchildren, and she is experiencing much improvement and a much higher level of self esteem in the classroom. I have a passion for the English language, and feel that there is nothing more important than fluent reading skills, correct grammar, & the ability to be an effective writer. I would consider it an honor to help your child achieve all of these.
Regardless of the challenges you are facing, I know that I can help you. You have already taken the first step. I'm looking forward to meeting with you!

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.
