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 hold an active Virginia certification to teach K-3. I taught First Grade for 5 years in a large Catholic school. I currently homeschool my children in pre-K, First, Fourth, and Sixth grades.

Phonics

I hold a master's degree in Reading from the University of Virginia. Phonics was a major portion of the graduate classes there. The class called "Word Study" instructed teacher on how exactly to successfully teach reading with phonics. I also hold an active Virginia certificate with a reading endorsement.

Reading

I am a state certified reading specialist and have a master's degree in reading education. I have taught 1st grade for 5 years and have tutored numerous students in reading.

Spelling

I hold a master's degree in reading and am a certified reading specialist. An integral part of reading is phonics and spelling. An integral part of my graduate studies was how spelling and reading skills are interrelated. There was a strong focus on analyzing spelling skills to discover what exactly is going on in a student's mind and how to correct this. The main intervention I use with my students is word study. I have used word study with my 1st grade students and with students I have tutored in the past.
