About Penny

Hi:

I am a mother of three sons and a grandmother to a 3 year old darling little girl. I am currently working on a master's degree in Human Resource Development. My strengths in English are very high as I have to write a lot of reports. Children like me very much and I have a great rapport with them. I like to use flash cards with young children and illustrated books. I also assist in speech such as pronunciation. With older children I try to emphasize the use of a dictionary and other forms of information to help assist with learning. Writing helps to learn the correct usage of words and use the imagination.

I am also very computer literate. I have had over 30 years experience working with computers and know many programs such as Microsoft PowerPoint, Excel, Access, and Word.

I am very reliable and punctual.

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.

Desktop Publishing

I have had 16 hours in graphics education, and worked for a publishing company and a newspaper.

English

I start with what the child knows in terms of pronunciation and phonics and work from there. Without the proper knowledge of phonics and sounding out words, it interferes with the reading process. Dictionary use is emphasized in order for child to use research and learning words on their own.

ESL/ESOL

I am a master's degree student and am very good at writing papers and helping students with their English. I have assisted many foreign students with their essays in which they received very good grades.

General Computer

I have been working with computers for 30 years and have extensive use and knowledge of spreadsheets, PowerPoint, Word, and Access.

Geography

Geography is a subject that a lot of Americans do not have extensive knowledge of. I have 15 credit hours in geography as an undergrad. I find it to be a very interesting subject.

Government & Politics

I have a certificate in Public Personnel Administration and in Public Administration.

Grammar

Dictionary use, spelling, pronunciation, and phonics are taught.

Microsoft Excel

I have 30 years experience working with spreadsheets.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have over three years experience working with PowerPoint.

Microsoft Publisher

I have 16 credit hours in Graphics and Advertising. I have used Adobe Illustrator, Corel Draw and Publisher. I worked for a publishing company in graphics and for the local newspaper.

Reading

I use flash cards and illustrated books to teach reading to the younger children. I emphasize phonics as it is the basis of our language.

Sociology

I have 21 credit hours in sociology as an undergraduate. Teaching of different cultures in our country as well as other countries is emphasized. Students will learn how other societies are the same as well as different than their own culture and customs.

Tax Preparation

I worked for both Jackson Hewitt and Liberty Tax. I completed the course for Liberty Tax in Cleveland, TN.

TOEFL

Great at English and can teach reading and speaking.
