About KAYLEEN

I was an elementary teacher for 16 years, 2 years in third grade 1 year in second grade and 13 years in first grade. While teaching I tutored 3-5 days per week after school. I love teaching beginning readers or those students who have difficulty reading. If a child has difficulty reading that often appears as difficulty with other subjects, once the reading and comprehension improves, the grades in other subjects improve as well. All of my first grade students were reading above grade level by the end of the year, every year that I taught. I stopped teaching 8 years ago to care for my husband who was ill. I miss teaching so I thought that I would get back into teaching by tutoring.

I work with the student, their parents and the teacher to find the most appropriate and effective methods for that student. I have my own materials for tutoring as well as using the student's textbooks and/or assignments to best accomplish the goals that we establish as a team. I often use humor when teaching because that is my nature and because I appreciate how children see the world.

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 been an elementary school teacher for 16 years. I tutored children from kindergarten through high school throughout those years. My evaluations were always the highest scores possible from many different principals.

Handwriting

In my 16 years of elementary school teaching I taught both printing and cursive handwriting to regular classroom students and those with disabilities.

Phonics

I started my 16 years of elementary school teaching phonics. When phonics instructions fell out of favor we were no longer supplied with phonics workbooks, I continued to incorporate phonics in my lessons because I knew the importance of sounding out the letters when reading and writing.

We have used Kayleen for the 3 lessons, and she has been punctual and professional. My son's reading is improving, and he is enjoying working with her. I highly recommend her services.
