About Beverly

I have worked with students with an array of learning styles. I start my tutorial sessions with a brief discussion of why you think your learning style isn't successful; then we explore ways to make it successful. I develop a simplistic method for you to use your learning style, and we start your journey to success.
During my experiences with the Department of Defense Schools in Japan and Germany, as well as public schools here in America; I've found this method quite effective with small group and one on one instructions. In 2005 I retired from Richland School District One. Since then, I've used my learning styles method of instruction with students from elementary to college.
My method of teaching a student how to effectively apply their learning style to the English subjects (reading, writing, grammar and literature) has allowed students I've worked with to become more effective in other core academic areas.
While developing my methodology of instruction, I've worked with students diagnosed with autism, emotional and behavioral disabilities; that were in traditional and self-contained classrooms. I've found my methodology to be successful for any student with learning difficulties.
I believe, there are few people that excel in all academic areas; but learning how to successfully use the elements of English will allow you proficiency in other academic pursuits. My independent and institutional studies have allowed me to use a holistic approach to learning English and other academic topics. It is as important to understand how to apply learning techniques, as well as memorize material. It is my goal for students I work with, to instinctively use what they've learned throughout their lives. Become a part of my IYOUWE technique of learning.

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.

Autism

During my employment with Department of Defense Schools and Richland school district one, I have assisted autistic students, from elementary to high school in enhancing their academic abilities. I am presently a companion to a 24 year old autistic male. I have worked with him since 2005, in implementing apropriate at home and community socialization skills.

Reading

My first experience in education was at a neighborhood community center. It was the summer after graduating high school, and I was assigned to help one of our community leaders learn how to read. She was eighty-two years old. It was quit a rewarding experience for both of us.

Special Needs

I have a Degree in Human Services and 27 years of working with students of various special needs and 8 years of working with dual diagnostic adult males and females in small group and individualized settings. I have also independently studied various aspects of special needs.
