About Daryle

My name is Daryle. I taught ninth grade English from 1996-1999. In 1999, I left the classroom for the corporate world, and exercised my instructional skills as a Sunday School teacher for autistic children. Outsourcing and downsizing have led to my return to the field of education.

My education includes a B.A. in English Literature, and an M.A. in English. I also possess a certificate in the area of Women's Studies. I am licensed to teach grades 7-12 in Pennsylvania, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Florida.

I am currently employed as a full-time substitute teacher. I am required to cover all subject areas, and I spend a lot of time working with Special Education and Life Skills students.

As a teacher, one of my goals is to get students excited about learning. Reading aloud is one way that I interest them in subject matter. Many students dislike reading, so I read to them. Dramatic reading enacts and advances plot through sight and sound. Effective dramatic vocalization requires being comfortable with public speaking, showing emotion, and risking the appearance of foolishness. My facial expressions mirror the words of the work, and my voice changes with every character I portray. I employ whispers, shrieks, and changes in tempo and tone to illustrate authors' intentions. I am rewarded when I see interest and comprehension on students' faces.

A student who actively dislikes reading recently said that she liked the way I read to her class. Some children have told me that I am an unusual teacher. Others have remarked that I am hilarious. My philosophy is that I teach the way that I wish I had been taught. I have never heard that I am a boring teacher.

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.

Bible Studies

I was a Sunday School and Vacation Bible School teacher, and have read the Good News Bible in its entirety two times. I have participated in Bible study classes at Concordia Lutheran Church and Holy Angels Catholic Church. I am also familiar with the Douay-Rheims Bible, the Sacrament of Confirmation as taught by the Missouri Synod Lutheran and Catholic Churches.
