As educator and certified Life Coach, for over 15 yrs, I've assisted students & families reach academic and personal goals. Using highly effective, one on one, instructional programs, students (4th gr. to adult) experience a rapid increase in grades, confidence, and motivation. My specializations are Language Arts, Executive Function Development (study skills), stress management, and self-motivation. Holidays are the most effective time to make a huge difference in developing positive attitudes, elevating grades, and increasing confidence levels. My passion is helping students and families identify & remove emotional/negative mindsets which block learning enabling students to quickly move forward in reaching their goals. Students become more connected motivated, equipped, and empowered. My three main programs are: Academic Coaching, Executive Function Development and Mindset Reframing/Emotional Transformation. Academic Coaching includes targeted core subject, test preparation, study skills, and mastery of the state mandated knowledge standards. I also offer 24/7 online practice in all core subjects (including Spanish) for parents who choose to participate. In Mindset/Emotional Transformation, students develop resilience, problem-solving, positive mindsets, healthy perspectives, and social emotional intelligence. In Executive Function teens develop executive functionality (time management, task initiation, emotion regulation, problem-solving, focus, organization, boundaries, and healthier relational and communication skills.

As I earned my B.S. in Multi-disciplinary Studies (Major Education, and Minors Counseling, Computer Science) I studied quite a bit about personalities, how to ascertain interests, learning styles and have a particular interest in helping others through career development. Having also worked in corporate environments for the last 15 years and privately owned and operated a company which provided tutoring services for students based on learning preferences, styles and personal interests.

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

I love teaching elementary age students! Seeing the light in a student's eyes with the look of sudden recognition in their countenance is priceless! For the past nine years I've taught students from pre-K to 6th grade in all subjects (including study skills). In this stage of development it is crucial for students to develop a positive outlook of learning and form effective study skills. Positive habits established now will make parents' jobs and student's lives so much easier in high school, college and years to come. I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Multi-Disciplinary Studies (Dbl Major in Education, Counseling and Minor in Computer Science).
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

For the past 10 years I've taught students from Pre-K to 9th grade as a generalist (all subjects, inclusive of mathematics). In this stage of development having a good foundation in mathematics (multiplication, fractions, pre-algebra) is crucial to understanding the more difficult concepts to be introduced (algebra, geometry, logic and statistics) in the next few years.
Phonics,

Phonics

During my ten years of teaching, although I've supported students of all ages, I specialize in working with pre-k to 6th graders. I love working with those students who struggle in emergent reading because I use various fun and age-appropriate teaching strategies that encourage letter and word recognition, a solid foundation for reading fluency is developed, and a lifelong love of learning is created.
Reading,

Reading

Having a good foundation in Reading is essential for students to be successful. Fluency and comprehension quite often are areas where students struggle as they are developing emergent reading skills. Once the student improves they feel more confident of their abilities, learning becomes less tedious and more enjoyable.
Study Skills,

Study Skills

As part of my academic content pursuant to my undergraduate degree, I studied the different learning styles and the modalities dominant in each. I feel that I have a great handle on what type of activities a student would need to perform. For example, if a parent had a preferred visual learning style, and was encouraging the child to learn how he learns, there is a good chance if the child is kinesthetic, that he would have tremendous difficulty absorbing the lesson content. I teach with a differentiated strategy that identifies the student's preference and offers lesson activities that cater to that modality.

Prealgebra

Having a good understanding of pre-algebra is necessary in order to do well in higher levels of mathematics. I have several years' experience teaching students pre-algebraic concepts which usually introduced in 5th grade. A few of the basic concepts include using properties of multiplication, solving for variables, evaluating expressions involving decimals, fractions and mixed numbers, writing expressions and working with exponents.

College Counseling,

College Counseling

Selecting a college and lifelong career can certainly be daunting. In my B.S. in Multidisciplinary Studies (emphasis in Counseling), I believe students need help in identifying just exactly which career direction inspires, motivates and leads them as successful, positive and contributing members of society. It is crucial that students first know themselves and have a firm understanding of who they are as individuals, their strengths, weaknesses, natural learning tendencies and an idea of their overall purpose. I have received training in identifying the various assessment tools used to ascertain student's personality, IQ, interests, etc.

Nutrition,

Nutrition

Initially I studied the basics of nutrition and its effect on cognitive functionality and health out of necessity. As a teacher who supports special needs children (and a parent with two myself) I have considerable experience studying how cognitive functionality is enhanced through diet, physical exercise, vitamin supplements and the lessening of brain over-stimulation. For example, the ADD/ADHD brain processes information differently, requiring less processed sugars, flours and needing more Omega 3 fatty oils and protein. This aids by naturally enhancing focus abilities, lessens distractability and maximizes cognitive functionality in general.

Special Needs

ADHD,

ADHD

In my alternative certification program I studied various types of learning disabilities and their corresponding challenges they present to students (i.e. ADD/ADHD and how it affects cognitive abilities). Additionally I have 10+ years experience working specifically with children who have ADD/ADHD (I have two children, each with ADHD/ADD) and I assisted the majority of former tutor students with the challenges associated with ADD/ADHD such as focus and distractability difficulties, and the development of time management, organization, pro-activeness and goal-setting skills.
Dyslexia,

Dyslexia

I have supported students with dyslexia and other special needs since 2005. Using varied methodologies such as the Irlen color overlays, I assist with a variety of reading, learning and attention problems. Many originate from a sensitivity to light and black/white contrast and cognitive functionality issues. Each special needs student is unique! After identifying each dyslexic student's correct overlay color performance is improved in brain functionality and reduced eye strain thus improving reading fluency and comprehension.

Intelligent and patient tutor

Pamela was absolutely amazing. She really helped me figure out how to answer the prompt correctly in my college essay. She asked the questions that really got me to think of what I should say that would stand out to college admissions counselours. She was very patient with me and provided me with plenty of resources to help me write an ideal essay. I am definitely going to use her again in the near future!

One of the best tutors i had !

Having Pam as a tutor over the my spring semester benefitted me so much. Never have i met with a tutor who is ready to put her personal time just for her students and she is a tutor who really wants to see her students succeed whether its in college or high school. punctuality as a tutor is great she is mostly on time the only times that she has been late which is by a minute or two and thats due to traffic. her communication and expertise is fantastic she always finds alternatives when she is explaining a concept so that the student can get a clear picture. i would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a tutor to teach their kids it would definitely be Pam. i look forward to working more with her as the time comes by.
