I have tutored students in preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, fourth grade, and fifth grade in reading, math, language, vocabulary, speech, spelling, and phonics. My online tutoring has included working with preschool level students ages 4.5 yrs, engaging them in conversation and learning their alphabet or practicing their speech sounds sometimes with beginning reading lessons. I have helped students in kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, 3rd grade, and 4th grade online learn to improve their communicating, speaking, listening, spelling, and reading. I have been tutoring online, using grade level phonics or spelling lessons or oral reading comprehension questions about passages. I also tutored first graders or students in kindergarten, learning listening comprehension skills. I can informally assess speech articulation skills, using speech therapist guidelines that I learned in work and in studying communication disorders. I can also tutor students placed in speech-language therapy who have received Individualized Education Plans from their speech-language therapists at school.
I have been a Speech-Language Teacher, with experience teaching all qualified students in speech-language therapy. I have been tutoring online with the online tutoring site here since July 2020. When parents have the students' Individualized Education Plan with the articulation goals for the upcoming school year, I can target the sounds in their goals and they can see themselves succeed online with me providing the modeling and feedback and keeping track of their progress.
I have tutored Phonics, Reading, and Vocabulary online for grade levels kindergarten through 5th grade.
In person, I have tutored reading, math, and speech-language skills. As a full time teacher, I taught in the special education setting doing speech therapy as a Speech-Language Teacher for students of all ages, preschool through 12th grade.

I am interested in working with children or adults learning English as a second language. I have experience in teaching Speech-Language to the Speech-Language Impaired who were also classified ESL. I have taught vocabulary, grammar, correct use of sentence structure, situational language, and articulation skills to students with English as a second language, during my past experience as a Speech Teacher. I also have experience as an Elementary teacher and tutor for students needing remediation in reading, spelling, vocabulary, and other subjects.

As a certified Speech-Language Therapist and a tutor, I taught students grammar. I taught them to speak orally, using selected individualized student age or grade level appropriate vocabulary, to make sentences with good sentence structure and with good verb tense and subject agreement.

I work to teach the word recognition and sounding it out and then spelling it to the teacher after homework practice. I work with grade level Spelling charts which have word patterns in word lists for each specific grade level. I have the child read the words then practice writing them 3-5 times each. Then, I work to help them use the words in sentences after they learn the words. I give Spelling tests and tell them exactly which words to practice for the Spelling tests.

Patient & Upbeat

Tammy has been working with my 6 yr old daughter. It’s been a great experience thus far. My daughter is very comfortable with her and Tammy has been attentive to her needs as well as accommodating with the lessons she prepares for her.

Suzan, 43 lessons with Tammy

Great First lesson!

The first lesson went very well. She is patient with my daughter and has her set up on a good plan to help with her reading.

Amber, 23 lessons with Tammy

Patient and kind

My son likes Tammy as his teacher. He feels very comfortable speaking with her and taking class with her because she stays patient and kind. She also tries to make it interesting and fun for him especially since hes 5 years old with short attention span. He is usually shy about speaking but she has been able to keep him willing to cooperate and learn from her. Glad to have found her!

Great first lesson!

My daughters really enjoyed their first lesson with Tammy. It was all they talked about after she left and today (the day after) I arrived home from work to find them working on their homework assignments. Tammy listened very carefully to the girls attempts at reading and did a great job motivating them to work just a little bit harder on the tougher words and it was just that motivation that I was looking for in a teacher. We are looking forward to the next lesson!
