About Josephine

My love for teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning. As a Graduate student I know that self discipline and hard work pay off. I dedicate myself to helping students develop and master various skills beginning with primary grades, as well as into intermediate grades.

I specialize in tutoring Reading, writing, and math in elementary grades through 5th grade. I also tutor students in grades 3-8 in preparation of Reading STAAR. I have experience working with the public school curriculum and am familiar with grade level knowledge and skills at various levels.

One of my goals is to provide my student with an initial assessment so that I provide students with lessons to meet their current learning needs. I also provide biweekly assessments and progress reports.

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.

Common Core

I am a certified teacher who is certified to teach common core subjects such as reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. My certification covers thee common core subjects thru 6th grade. I am currently in the process of adding an additional certification to teach English Language Arts in grades 4-8.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Masters degree in Education with a concentration in Advanced Literacy. My certifications include: Generalist teacher for grades EC-6, ESL Supplemental as well as certified a Reading Specialist. I have been tutoring students at the elementary level for the past 5 years. References are available upon request.

Handwriting

As a teacher I have access to instructional materials that help promote mastery of handwriting skills. This component is built into reading and writing at the elementary grade levels.

Homeschool

As a certified teacher I feel qualified to teach homeschool because I am able to bring the classroom into the home and teach lessons in a one-on-one environment by providing the student with the true classroom experience. By utilizing instructional tools I can explicitly teach target skills and work closely with students while monitoring their progress. I have worked with four year olds with literacy development and was provided the space needed to teach foundational skills in the home setting.

Phonics

My certification as a Reading Specialist qualifies me to teach phonics. I have been teaching reading skills for the past 15 years which includes phonics instruction.

STAAR

I taught third grade and taught teaching strategies to my students. I helped prepare my students for STAAR Reading/Math at this level. I have also tutored students in grades 4-6 in preparation of STAAR Reading. I am more experienced with STAAR Reading than math from grades 3-6. I have also tutored students in 6th grade for STAAR Social Studies/Science state assessments.

Study Skills

As a teacher I believe that students need explicit instruction to learn effective study skills. Teaching study skills begins with organization which is a larger component of study skills. I have worked with a 6th grade student to study for exams and quizzes.
