I am now offering Regular Lessons for Reading, for Writing, for Reasoning, and for Study Skills. These Lessons are available for students at all levels through College.

Some students forget their skills and knowledge of subjects during the summer because they do not practice and receive tutoring.
Other students maintain or increase their skill and knowledge during the summer by practicing and receiving tutoring on their subjects(s).
To help maintain skill and knowledge level, many parents and students are having me provide tutoring during the summer for...
For anyone who needs a quick review for Finals, just email me. I can come in and in a few hours cover an entire semesters worth of material. I know how to direct students and teach them the necessary tricks and problem solving skills for each course at every level, whether it be elementary, middle school, high school, or college.
I pride myself in having the patience to explain things in more ways than one, so that children don't get frustrated. Being very personable and kind helps children feel secure in learning new ways to understand what is difficult for them. I also show children strategies which can be used for future work which is similar, that way they are not just learning the problem or skill specific to the...
I just completed my certification in the following subjects: vocabulary, grammar, reading, spelling, elementary (K-6th), phonics, study skills, theatre, Bible studies and public speaking. I am looking forward to tutoring students in these areas.
Summer break is on its way for many students. For most kids, summer is a time to relax and try not to think about school for a few months. Unfortunately kids have a difficult time retaining what they have learned, so teachers have to start over at the beginning of the following school year.
That is where summer tutoring comes in. If a student has fallen behind through the school year, summer...

I am so excited that I found WyzAnt!! It has been wonderful! I have met so many new people and love helping work with my students to see them advance! I worked in the public schools for 7 years and loved every minute of it when I had my SPED Resource Room for Learning Disabled, Dyslexic, and ADD/ADHD students. I got to see so many young people better themselves and get passed that learning barrier...
What should my child know by the end of the school year?
This is a very common question for concerned parents. Each state has a list of Grade Level Content Expectations, also known as GLCEs. In Michigan, you can take a look at this website to find out the GLCEs for your child's grade: http://www.michigan.gov/mde/0,1607,7-140-28753_33232---,00.html Not a very pretty url, but very informative...

Life in the 21st century does not always lend itself to taking time. Since leaving Abington Friends School, I have been taking time to write. In recent days, I have...

If you do not have a high school diploma, your next step is to get a GED. This is the minimum required by most employers to hire you for a position with their company. Also, this will prepare you for the SAT if you want to go on to college. Your math and English skills will be used in your daily life. This is an important step for you. Let me help.
