About Virginia

I have been a classroom teacher for 30 years. Helping children love learning and understanding why concepts are important is what I feel I am called to do. I believe all children can be reached. Children can grasp concepts thru using their five senses and have fun in the process. I love encouraging and motivating students. Teaching will always be my main interest and gift.

My years of experience with a very diverse population makes me very qualified.

I have taught using themes & making connections whenever the opportunity arises.

I taught kindergarten 20 years, second grade 8 years, and substitute other elementary grades. I believe students spell phonetically & also thru sight by being read to often. I like to make learning fun & know how to develop materials & appeal to different learning styles.

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.

Phonics

My 28 years as a public school educator most certainly qualifies me to tutor children. I have taught kindergarten & second grade & have substitute taught all elementary grades. Over the years I have had evaluations from administrators that show I am exceptionally qualified in all subject areas. Parents have shown appreciation over the years as well.
