Bio

I graduated from Peabody College in 1978 with a degree in special and elementary education. My emphasis was on teaching students with learning disabilities. I was a special education teacher for three years in an elementary school in Savannah, Georgia. I then moved back to Tennessee and have been teaching special education in Williamson County for 29 years. I began at Fairview Middle as a self-contained teacher working with 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. I later became an Inclusion teacher...

I graduated from Peabody College in 1978 with a degree in special and elementary education. My emphasis was on teaching students with learning disabilities. I was a special education teacher for three years in an elementary school in Savannah, Georgia. I then moved back to Tennessee and have been teaching special education in Williamson County for 29 years. I began at Fairview Middle as a self-contained teacher working with 6th, 7th, and 8th graders. I later became an Inclusion teacher and co-taught with the regular ed teachers in the classroom. After eight years in Fairview, I transferred to Brentwood Middle school and have been there ever since. I have continued to teach in the Inclusion model and have primarily taught in Language Arts and Math classes. I have also spent much time working with students who have weak organizational skills. For the last ten to twelve years I have looped with my students, starting with them in 6th grade and following through the 8th grade. This has been a valuable experience, for I have been truly able to get to know my students but their parents as well. I just finished teaching 8th graders so I will be starting in 6th grade again next year. I have also tutored at the Learning Lab in Brentwood. I enjoy working one on one with students and believe I am well qualified to work with elementary and middle school students. I have recently retired after teaching for 33 years and am available to tutor not only after school, but also during the day.

I have spent a vast amount of time over the last thirty-two year working with students to complete homework, prepare for tests, and assist with organizational skills. I have worked with students not only in the classroom but also before and after school. Depending on the individual's particular learning style, I have adapted material as needed, test accommodations and modifications as needed in order to allow them to succeed. Whether they have studied best with flash cards, help on note taking, oral testing, or repeated drill and extra practice, I have tried to give them access to the tools that would help them be successful.

A good fit for us.

4th grade writing and multiplication . We have a good starting place for growth and learning. Sylvia took the time and brought the lessons needed to know where to start with our 10 year old.

Kathy, 4 lessons with Sylvia

A perfect fit

Ms. Sylvia was a perfect fit for my son. My son has difficulty learning Math and has ADHD. Ms. Sylvia was successful holding his attention the full hour and was able to help him learn a task he has struggled with for weeks. We are looking forward to our next lesson!

Tammie, 9 lessons with Sylvia

Great teacher, very patient.

Sylvia was great working with our son. She found a way to make reading fun and a positive learning experience.

Nicole, 4 lessons with Sylvia

I highly recommend Sylvia's services.

Sylvia assisted me with an interview I had to perform for school. She was extremely prompt in responding to my inquiry and prompt completing the lesson. She was able to supply me with thoughtful and practical information that helped me immensely. She was also very concerned with the quality of her work, checking in with me several times to make sure the lesson was what I needed. As I said in the title, I highly recommend Sylvia's services!
