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.

ADHD

Many of my students have had ADD/ ADHD. I have attended many seminars related to ADHD through the school district where I am employed. I also taught at an Alternative School. My daughter also has ADD /inattentive type.

Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have taught students with Autism ranging from 5 years to 17 years old. I am certified Special Ed EC-22.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified special education teacher retiring early to tutor full-time. My experience teaching Resource Reading, Math, and English in pre-k through 4th will help me prepare your child for a successful year. Also, I taught Homebound students ages 3-22 in all subject areas for over 10 years so I can help your older child as well.

Elementary Math

I have taught math from kinder through 6th grade. My desire is to teach students in a variety of ways so that they learn to love working with numbers and no longer fear them. I have attended many math workshops on teaching students so that they actually understand how they got the answer and why it is either right or wrong. I enjoy bringing students up to their grade level and challenging them to excel until math is their "new" favorite subject!

English

My specialty is teaching reading and writing so that my students learn to love it. I work very well with reluctant learners as well as struggling students. I have over 15 years teaching experience and now have my ESL endorsement added to my teaching certificate.

Phonics

I have attended formal training in both the Wilson Reading and the Stevenson Language and Reading program. I have taught phonics to children from pre-school to 7th grade. I personally prefer the Stevenson curriculum and have purchased it for my tutoring business. I like that it combines handwriting, grammar, and reading components at different levels so that students of different ages and skills can have their needs met.

Reading

I have a great love for reading and enjoy fostering that same love with my students. I have taught struggling students from K - 12th and enhanced their reading skills in decoding, comprehension, and fluency. I have a proven method that I use for beginning readers or I can support their school based program.

Social Studies

My Bachelor's degree is in History. I love social studies at all levels.

Special Needs

I have extensive experience working with children and young adults with Special needs ranging from severe and profound to high- functioning Autism. I am also well trained in working with students needing physical accommodations.

Spelling

I currently teach Resource in an elementary school. I have my Bachelor's degree and have completed courses at the graduate level. I have also passed your spelling requirements.

Study Skills

I am able to organize even the most unorganized student and help them to be successful in their learning. I am firm but reasonable in my demands and because I have established a relationship with my students, they succeed.

Writing

I have experience in editing and grading papers in writing from kindergarten through graduate school. I have written papers myself for very demanding college professors and have tutored students of all ages in the writing process.
