About Tammy

Hello. My name is Tammy C. and I am a certified teacher and dyslexia specialist seeking elementary or junior high students to tutor in the Sweeny area or online after school hours and on Saturdays. I have many years of experience working with dyslexic students at the elementary, junior high, and high school levels. I enjoy the challenge of working with students who have learning differences in reading or just need a little extra help in any subject.

I would prefer to tutor in my home but am willing to consider other locations. I prefer to tutor in reading and language arts but will tutor in any subject at the elementary level. I also feel comfortable tutoring in any junior high subject except math and would consider tutoring certain high school subjects including English and history.

Thank you for reading my profile and wish you the best in finding a tutor that meets your needs.

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.

Dyslexia

Dyslexia is a genetic condition that causes a student to have trouble with reading and spelling. Usually dyslexic students have trouble with the phonemic awareness component of reading. This means that they have trouble knowing and manipulating the sounds that make up words. Dyslexia is remediated in the state of Texas by teaching students phonics. I have taught students with dyslexia at Sweeny ISD for more than 10 years. I have been trained through Region 4 Educational Service center and the Luke Waits Center for Dyslexia at the Scottish Rite Hospital for Children in Dallas.

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a teaching certificate in all subjects grades 1-8 and have taught at the elementary and Jr. Hi levels for more than 10 years.

Phonics

As a dyslexia teacher, I have taught phonics to struggling readers for many years.

Reading

In addition to a teaching certificate for grades 1-6, I also have a specialization in reading. This means that I have 18 college hours in reading instruction. I have taught title 1 reading and dyslexic students with specific reading problems. I have also worked closely with reading teachers and the reading specialist at the school district where I am employed.

Spelling

The majority of my teaching experience is with dyslexic students. Part of the program that I use with them focuses on improving their spelling using multi-sensory techniques. I believe that these techniques would be effective for most students having difficulties with spelling.
