About Cornelia

I am a former Texas credentialed 5th grade teacher as well as a CA credentialed counselor. I have taught 5th graders for 5 years in Texas and then continued in my career as a school counselor for 30+years. I possess a WV Teaching Certificate as well as a Counseling Certificate. I enjoy substitute teaching in the schools, all levels from Kindergarten to High School.

Additionally, I began an Elkins Writing Group that meets on a monthly basis. I enjoy reading, writing, as well as inspiring others to succeed. In my career as a counselor, I've had the opportunity to use various computer programs such as Microsoft Word, Excel and others. If you would like to learn, be motivated and be successful, I would love to tutor you! I am also bilingual in Spanish and have taught ESL classes to adults. It doesn't matter if I tutor young children, teenagers or adults, I just enjoy seeing the difference that learning makes in a person's life!

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)

While in Texas as a Certified Elementary Teacher, I taught 5th grade for 5 years. I was an instructor in all areas of the curriculum.

Handwriting

I have worked in elementary schools for 35+ years, first as an elementary school teacher (5 years) and subsequently as a counselor for 30+years. I have excellent penmanship being taught by Franciscan nuns many years ago.

Microsoft Windows

As an elementary school counselor in Texas, we were required to take computer classes in order to get our clerical work done. Since about 1971, I've attended training, used the Apple Computer system and then switched over to Microsoft Windows for most of my career. I have been keeping abreast of various computer programs including: Word, Publisher, Excel and Publisher. Presently, I use Windows 7, but have used Windows 98 and 95.

Study Skills

I have been in education for 35+ years. Initially as a 5th grade teacher for 5 years, then as a counselor for 30 years. I have taught study skills lessons to students with emphasis on time management, prioritizing tasks, goal setting, becoming self-motivated, as well as having a positive attitude toward learning and the importance of success.
