About Beth

I am a Special Education teacher with over fourteen years of teaching experience both in the classroom as well as private tutoring. I have my M.Ed. in Special Education and certifications as a Reading Specialist, Elementary K-6, and Wilson Reading System Level 2, which is a research based multisensory program developed to help struggling readers of any age become fluent readers. In addition, I have experience using Lindamood-Bell's Visualizing and Verbalizing and Seeing Stars programs. I individualize my lessons to meet the learning needs and interests of each student. I implement a number of different progress monitoring tools and feel that taking on-going data drives student success. While the majority of my students are in grades 3-5, I have worked with younger and older children as well.
I currently tutor students both in their homes and my own. My rate is dependent upon the type of tutoring required as well as my travel.

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.
