About Elinda

I am a fun loving mom who has a passion for reading. I have had wonderful tutoring opportunities working with children in a public school system, and providing private one on one tutoring in the private sector. I have tutored children in kindergarten through fifth grade in basic reading and math skills. My tutoring curriculum consists of teaching phonemic awareness, story telling, reading comprehension, vocabulary development, one on one reading sessions, group lessons, homework assistance, and basic math and organizational skills.

My course work at Kaplan University, Ft. Lauderdale, FL (I hold an A.S.Associate of Science Interdisciplinary Studies Educational Paraprofessional). The United States Americorp, Duval county, Florida Reads Literacy training, and the Read to Succeed tutor training, Murfreesboro, TN, has given me the educational skills that I need to effectively teach reading, writing, and organizational skills.

My concentration has been to work with students, parents and teachers to bring out the best in all students. Special attention and motivation is given to create a harmonious learning environment for all.

Are you a busy professional pressed for time? Allow me to assist you and you child. I am able to provide a program that is tailored just for you! I can assist with organizational skills, study tips, homework help and summer reinforcement lessons.

I am able to give my full attention to your needs. I welcome you to contact me with any questions and concerns that you may have.

I look forward to hearing from you soon!
