About Gretel

I have been working as a teacher/tutor for over ten years now. I worked with kids who presented any type of learning disability in the classroom as well as in private lessons. I also tutor for bilingual (English-Spanish) kids who were having trouble dealing with a second language.

I do both private tutoring at the kid´s home and at my place. The age group I feel most comfortable with is 5-11 years, but I have worked with middle school kids, too.

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 have taught a variety of subjects at the elementary level for over 10 years now. Some of the subjects include math, science, reading, phonics, vocabulary, grammar and social studies.

I worked with differentiated instruction and have experienced the joy in students to know they are being approached at their level. My students were always encouraged to be creative. The learning environment was safe, fun and presented an equal opportunity for everybody to learn.

I think the key to the success of the student is developing good study skills. This will allow the student to perform better and be able to work independently.

ESL/ESOL

I am a native Spanish speaker and have been teaching English to Spanish speaking kids and adults for more than 10 years.

Phonics

I have taught English to elementary students for over 10 years. In my experience, phonics is very important to help students succeed with spelling and therefore with reading. Working with rhymes, comparing and differentiating sounds should be fun and entertaining to kids.

The best approach to phonics is to follow the sequence of teaching letters and their sounds to then work with blending, digraphs, syllables and words with higher complexity.
