About Darlene

I love learning and I love kids, and together that makes for an excellent tutor! I am an experienced classroom teacher who is certified in Elementary Education, mid-level (Grades 7-9) Language Arts, and I have excellent skills in pre-algebra and Algebra I!! [I plan to earn my state certification in math this year.] Does your child need help getting started in French? I wrote and taught the entire curriculum for a language-learning (French) summer enrichment camp for students entering grades 3-6.

As a 3rd grade teacher, my students were the only ones in my school who achieved above "Basic" in math and social studies standardized testing. My students evaluate me as their teacher at the end of the school year, and they usually write, "You really know how to help me understand things" or "you explain things really well." Those are a few qualities needed in a competent tutor, wouldn't you say? A tutor needs to know how to "break it down" into understandable concepts for the student so key concepts can be learned, not just memorized. I would love to help your child/student improve on and achieve his or her academic goals ... Please contact me today so we can get started!!

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 state certified in Pennsylvania in elementary education (K-6). I have taught elementary classes in 3rd, 5th and 6th grades.

Reading

One of the most important skills a student can have is reading fluency. Through exercises in reading comprehension, building vocabulary, etc., I can help your child build reading skills. Whether your child is in kindergarten or high school, I can work patiently with them to cultivate a love of reading - and a love of learning!

SAT Reading

I am state certified in Language Arts, and I scored high on the SAT Reading Test!
