About Blair

I am certified through the state of Oklahoma to teach Elementary grades 2-6. I have had many tutoring experiences in the past, all of which were positive. I love Elementary maths, reading, and English. During college, I worked at a day-school, where I was able to help students with their homework after school. I loved this, because I could see them start to understand, because of my help. My style of teaching is different than most. In math, I prefer to use hands-on manipulatives so that students can actually see the math. I also like to use graphic organizers in Reading. I love using games to teach all subjects, especially phonics. I feel like I have always been called to be a tutor, because I am more confident working with a student in a one on one position.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a teaching certificate through the state of Oklahoma to teach Elementary aged students. I have tutored many students in many subjects. I love to keep kids involved by using manipulatives and using subjects that they are interested in to have them make connections.

Elementary Math

I have had the opportunity to not only teach 4th grade math during my professional trimester, but I have also been able to tutor many students, using different approaches to difficult math problems. I LOVE using hands-on manipulatives in elementary math, because I feel it helps the students get a visual idea of how math relates our everyday lives.

Elementary Science

I have the experience, of teaching elementary aged students in their science classes. I love being able to see the smiles on my students' faces when either a science experiment shocks them or when they finally understand what I am teaching.

Phonics

I am certified in Elementary Education through the University of Science and Arts of Oklahoma. I have tutored a handful of students in phonics and have been taught by one of the best professors of Reading and Phonics in the state. I use games to teach phonics, such as flash cards, Candyland, and many others. I love to keep kids engaged in learning by using subjects that they are interested in.

Proofreading

As a certified teacher, and a teacher's kid, I have an eye for errors in summaries. I would love to help your student learn how to spot the errors in their homework and train them to recognize them in every day life.

Reading

I have had the opportunity help many students in reading. I like to use stories of their interest and use games to keep them interested while they learn! All of my students have shown success and all continue to grow in their journey of reading.

Spelling

When it comes to spelling, I use different techniques and tricks to help me remember and recognize ways to spell words correctly. I have always been a good speller and continue to grow with practice.

Vocabulary

When it comes to teaching vocabulary, I like to keep it fun and use games and flashcards. All my students and peers that I have helped really enjoy my methods.

Writing

In both high school and college, I was at the top of my class in writing techniques. I also attended a creative writing camp in New Mexico during my Junior year of high school. I love to write and am a nerd when it comes to writing technique.
