About Betsy

My name is Betsy. I have a Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education and have taught both first and second grade for the past 18 years in the same school, currently teaching first grade. I am also a National Board certified teacher in reading and literacy.

Teaching/tutoring young children brings me great joy as I am able to participate in the foundation of their academic, as well as social, emotional, and developmental education. All students learn differently and finding the key to success with each individual child is rewarding and joyful.

I have vast experience in working with children at a pivotal period of time in their reading development. I work with students independently and in small groups on reading strategies, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. Students working under my instruction have a high rate of reading on or above grade-level.

I have taught the Common Core standards ever since they were adopted in South Carolina. Each lesson I teach is directly linked to one or more Common Core standards.

I teach spelling and handwriting on an individualized basis. Each child has his or her own list of spelling words based on words they don't yet know how to spell. Students are taught spelling through a hands-on approach rather than through memorization.

I teach the phonics skills that will help each individual child become a more fluent reader.

Teaching children and helping them meet their potential academically is a lifelong goal of mine that brings me great joy! I will be more than happy to discuss further my personal visions as an educator.

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 been teaching for 18 years as a certified early childhood teacher. I am able to evaluate a child on his or her individual strengths and weaknesses and foster growth in each particular area. It is my pleasure to spend time with a student as these skills are learned and developed using a variety of learning tools to meet individual needs.

Letter formation is an important part of writing and has been left out of the curriculum by many districts and schools.
