Attention Students and Parents:
Thank you for your consideration in the tutoring of your child. As a retired English, Language Arts teacher of grades 7-12, I am fully aware of the impact that struggling readers and writers have in all of their education. Afterall--in what course do we NOT read or write? I am most interested in working with younger readers and writers, ages 5-12, to insure their early educational success. That being said, I will consider older students on a case-by-case basis, depending on the needs of the student.
My goal as your child's tutor is to recognize areas of strength that will help your student become more deeply enriched in the areas where he/she needs help. In doing so, your student will become more confident in her own abilities as she demonstrates her skills. It is my desire to incorporate all of your child's senses in the learning process through the use color, sound, texture, and movement, so that he/she will recall information with ease and be able to use these methods throughout his or her education.
My whole language approach to reading and writing will introduce and/or reinforce phonics, as well sight vocabulary where needed. Writing will be an important part of every tutoring session, regardless of its content. Furthermore, your child will be able to recall and discuss what he has learned with you, as he uses a daily learning log.
I look forward to hearing from you.

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.
