I have worked with students in school districts 30 years, working with struggling students, and have experience working with a wide range of students. I have also been a tutor after school hours for approximately 17yrs, in addition to tutoring programs for low test score schools in Reading improvement. I have been a private tutor now for about 9 years.
I use many materials I have accumulated over the years, stressing phonics, comprehension, fluency, grammar, and much more. I use a variety of workbooks, worksheets, games and hands on activities to help the student learn, retain and understand what they are learning. ( I will tutor basic, beginning math up to learning multiplication facts, and have some math games as well.) I have worked in special ed, and with learning problems such as dyslexia, adhd and processing difficulties etc.
I believe learning must be fun and relaxed. Stress and pressure are counterproductive and a student cannot learn well under those conditions. I endeavor to build up the child's self esteem, and focus on their abilities and accomplishments, right where they are so they enjoy learning.
Please call or text with further questions, I would be glad to talk with you and discuss your child's tutoring plan and how we can best help your child. I look forward to hearing from you! :)
Right now I'm tutoring from 3 public libraries. Clovis library (on 5th/Clovis Ave), Politi library (1st/Bullard),
or the Woodward Park library (Perrin/Champlain).
