About Petra

I am a certified Special Education Teacher K-12 and I am endorsed in Learning Disabilities, Emotionally Disturbed, and have an endorsement in General Education K-3. I am currently instructing in a public school and work with students that are in fourth and fifth grade. We work collaboratively as well as utilizing small group and one-on-one instruction.
I am very goal oriented and carefully select and adapt teaching materials that increase student performance and love for learning.

I have tutored throughout my teaching and I enjoy getting to know my students.

I feel I have helped students successfully understand concepts that were difficult for them to understand...Fractions and Decimals.

I use a combination of word reading, comprehension skills, and fluency training.

My students have performed well on their SOL testing, receiving passing and advanced proficiency.

I have been teaching special education for many years and keep my certificate up, along with attending ongoing instruction to improve my teaching.

Teachers who love teaching...teach children to love learning.

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.

Phonics

I have recently attended a conference on word reading and decoding. I am a certified special education teacher with a background of strategies used in decoding. I work with small groups to address phonetic weaknesses. My students have goal oriented IEP's that require data to show growth in word reading.

SOL

I have been instructing in a school division for 14 years that has performed well on state SOL testing. I have participated in after school "Boost" sessions to prep for testing. I have tutored students in areas of weakness in math and reading to help prepare for testing. I have worked with classrooms and students on test prep. skills.
