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.

ADD/ADHD

I have worked with ADD/ADHD students for thirty five years and understand their unique skills and needs. My educational background is founded in good research and practical experience. My tutoring style keeps the student engaged in many types of learning activities to help promote generalization of skills.

Elementary (K-6th)

Most of my career encompassed teaching K5-6th grade students. I taught about four years at the Middle School level too. My passion is for the elementary student who is a sponge for learning new concepts. My goal is to make each student a life-long learner who is enthusiastic about gaining new information and applying that information to his/her own life.

Elementary Math

Math is an area of expertise for me due to my many years of classroom teaching and tutoring. I grew up with a strong sense of numbers and problem solving, so I can help others achieve in the area of math. Most of the children I have tutored have become self-sufficient and successful learners.

English

Well written work is essential to promote your ideas to others. With thirty-five years of teaching and tutoring experience, my guidance in this area is invaluable. Promoting descriptive sentences with impecable grammar is my expertise and I would enjoy sharing my knowledge with you. I have fostered a love of writing in many young people and enjoy the challenge of transferring ideas of the mind into an outstanding written format. Contact me soon and you will have a great learning experience.

Nutrition

As a Diabetic, I have to maintain appropriate nutrition to control my blood sugar. My entire family has this condition and I am considered the nutritional expert to keep all of us on the appropriate path. I am well read and worked with a Diabetic Nurse to understand the connection between nutrition and good health.

Phonics

Teaching of phonics skills is imperative in a holistic approach to reading. Through my thirty five years of teaching, I have frequently encorporated phonic lessons into the curriculum for accurate reading and spelling. I have many learning tools and games to make learning phonics fun and practical.

Reading

Reading is the gateway to all knowledge. To instill a passion for words in children is my goal. The correct balance of phonics, reading in context, vocabulary building, expanding more in-depth comprehension of all written materials, and creating an appreciation of literature creates the core foundation for children to absorb and generalize reading skills. Making the learning experience an enjoyable one for your child is the magic that I bring to each tutoring session. You will be extremely happy with the results that my tutoring creates for your child.

Social Studies

This subject takes a good eye for detail and patience to make the ideas come to life. I have experience both in the classroom and as a tutor with this area of the curriculum. History is so linked to our present and that makes this area of study an exciting one to teach.

Special Needs

My BS degree is for Exceptional Education with a Psychology minor. Then my MS degree is for Learning Disabilities. In addition, I have taken many courses beyond my MS in educational development for students with special needs. Finally, I was a Case Manager for six years and have expertise in IEP Management.

Study Skills

As both an educator and a tutor, study skills are critical to learning for all students. I incorporate study skills throughout my teaching within the classroom and within my tutoring sessions. It is vital to teach students how to organize materials, memorize facts, and to generalize information in order to pass tests and use the information for life skills.
