My name is Becky,
I have twenty-five plus years of elementary teaching experience in a variety of venues. I have a bachelor's degree in Elementary Education from Brigham Young University. I formally taught third grade for two years. I have seven children....the youngest of which is eight and have home-schooled for about eight years in the past. I've held numerous teaching positions throughout the years in my church. I ran my own pre-school music class for two years...one at The Creative Art's Academy in Bountiful Utah. Growing up I took nine years of private piano lessons...which included an in-depth study of music theory, technique and improvisational training. I also have theatre training.
My teaching strengths lie in teaching the process of reading....reading in general, elementary science, art, the writing process, general music, piano and english. I believe learning should be as hands-on as possible...but all learning styles should be incorporated depending on the needs of a student.
One-on-one instruction is by far the most superior way for a child to learn and progress. I believe learning should be fun to be motivational, so I play games and use a variety of activities to engage children. I'd love to be a part of your child's learning success!!!

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education and taught third grade for two years. Since that time I have homeschooled off and on for 8 plus years. I have held numerous teaching positions within my church and a preschool music business I ran. I am highly qualified to teach any of the Elementary subjects....where my strengtsh lie in the arts, science, writing and reading.
Phonics,

Phonics

I was a past Elementary School Teacher and have taught all seven of my children to be proficient readers. Phonics are the building blocks of reading. To teach without them is like expecting a child to master multiplication without number recognition. Phonics breaks our language down into pieces such as: letters, dipthongs, consonant and vowel blends, etc. Mastery of these components is necessary to gain the ability to read. This subject is best mastered through much repetition....game playing, music and other creative techniques are highly effective methods.

Piano

I reached level nine in piano performance by the age of eighteen. I had in-depth piano playing training as well as theory and technique. I have taught my own children as well as others to reach intermediate levels. I use the Alfred Series for training as well as other tools (such as flashcards or games) depending on the learning style of the student. Music training is more fun with rewards so I incorporate that as well!! Though I didn't major in music, it has been a part of most of my life. I am very well qualified to tutor this subject and would even say I received more training than the average student. My teacher was associated with the MTA in California and had all of her students pass written and playing exams every year. I passed through level eight.
