I have tutored students in preschool, kindergarten, first grade, second grade, third grade, fourth grade, and fifth grade in reading, math, language, vocabulary, speech, and phonics. My online tutoring has included working with preschool level students ages 4.5 yrs and up, engaging them in conversation and learning their alphabet. I have helped students in kindergarten, first, second, third, and fourth grade online learn to improve in speaking, spelling, and reading. I have been tutoring online, using grade level phonics lessons and oral reading or listening and answering questions about passages. I also informally assess informally speech articulation skills, using speech therapist guidelines that I learned in work and in studying communication disorders.
I have been a Speech-Language Teacher, with experience teaching all qualified students in speech therapy. I have been tutoring online with the online tutoring site here since July 2020. If parents have the students' Individualized Education Plan with the articulation testing or articulation goals for the upcoming school year, I can target the sounds in their goals and they can see how well they can succeed online with me providing the modeling and feedback and keeping track of their accuracy as they progress.
I also have tutored Phonics, Reading, and Vocabulary online for grade levels kindergarten through fourth grade.
Before tutoring for students met through this site, my tutoring experience included being a tutor in several school districts. From 2012 to present, I have tutored students ages five to twelve in 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 with 60 students per year. I taught Speech-Language skills to students of all ages, preschool through 12th grade in all areas of communication, voice, fluency, articulation, language, and pragmatics.

Subjects

History

Social Studies

Social Studies

I have passed the teaching K-6th grade professional knowledge and general knowledge tests that had sections related to social studies. I currently aim to tutor the subject of social studies by integrating it with Reading skills for some elementary grade levels. My in person experience with tutoring Reading Social Studies was helping the student find materials in the library and then helping them increase their ability level to read and comprehend the social studies materials. I have some workbooks that have paragraphs that target reading comprehension with the social studies topics and questions following the paragraphs.

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.

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.

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!
