Dr. Martin Luther College (Elementary Ed.)
I have been working in a Lutheran elementary school since 1994. I taught second and second/third grade for four year in the 1970s. I stopped to raise our 4 children. I was diagnosed with ADD in 2000. I understand what a student with ADD goes through. I love helping them.
I have been helping students in reading and phonics for 20 years. I have used the Barton Reading and Spelling system with several students. It has helped them greatly. I have helped student learn how to read a textbook and find the answers to worksheets. I have helped with math from Kindergarten through sixth grade.
I have found many helpful apps on the iPad and computer to help student improve in different fields.
I try to work with whatever works for the students and parents because I know that their lives are very full. I would love to be of service to someone who is feeling lost.

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.
