I have helped elementary and middle-school students become better readers, writers and mathematicians for over a decade. I have a BS degree in Elementary Education, a level two Special Education license (K-12), and an ESL endorsement. I am authorized to teach "Middle School" math. Spanish is my second language in which I am socially fluent. Currently, I teach school in Provo, Utah.
I employ researched methods for teaching. The National Reading Panel and the Spalding Method have helped guide my Language Arts instruction. I teach 10 comprehension skills. I use direct instruction to teach basic math operations and structure the sequence of math skills and concepts upon the published framework of University professionals. I use Morningside Math for fact study and practice.
I teach the following skills: MATH [math facts, math operations, word problems, fractions, decimals, percent and ratio, money, measurement, telling time, pre algebra] LANGUAGE ARTS [basic writing, reading fluency, reading accuracy, reading comprehension (summarize, connect, visualize, represent interest, categorize, cause and effect, present kinesthetically, change, vocabulary, question)]
My hour sessions are actually seventy minutes long, because they include a ten-minute break for the teacher and student(s). Ninety-minute sessions span one hundred five minutes considering the fifteen-minute break.
A consultation is free; see the materials and curriculum. The place of study is flexible. 12 hours notice of cancellation is required, but sessions can usually be made up at a later time.

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.

I participated in three days of training in the Spalding method. I practiced it for a couple of school years. This method involves reading, writing and spelling based upon seventy phonograms. The direct teaching includes teacher script, recited rules, and flash card learning. I adapted the use of phonemic awareness and phonic as I developed my own curriculum for reading fluency, accuracy and comprehension. I no longer use a text, but I continue to emphasize phonemes and phonemic awareness in my lessons.
