Retired Elementary School Teacher Available for Tutoring

During my 35 year career as a classroom teacher, I worked with students exhibiting signs of dyslexia in the regular classroom (mainstreamed), in Special Education classrooms and as a Learning Handicapped tutor for mainstreamed students in a public school setting. Dyslexia is often seen in young children who are reversing letters and numbers. Some of the techniques I've used are: 1. Having children use large muscle movements to "write" letters and numbers. 2. Having students practice writing letters and number using crayons, chalk, water and paintbrush and even tracing numbers and letters [more]

Experienced Teacher: ESL, Learning Disabilities, Reading, and More

I earned certification in the Phono-Graphix method of teaching people with dyslexia how to read. I've helped many readers with dyslexia improve their reading skills, helping them become more successful in school and other endeavors. I use the Phono-Graphix method along with some Lindamood-Bell materials and others that I've found successful. I have 20 years of teaching experience. I taught math and science in middle school, as well as ESL to adults. For the past nine years, I have home schooled my children, and helped develop curriculum and small classes in the homeschool community. I am also [more]

Anne - Passion For Tutoring People With Dyslexia

I was trained in the Barton tutoring program for people with dyslexia and related reading difficulties. It employs the Orton-Gillingham research and teaching methods. I successfully tutored a seventh grade student at a middle school last year. He won the award for 'the most improved student of the year.' He got A's on all the exams I prepared him for in his language arts class that used the Orton Gillingham method. On the last few tests he scored 100%! I have all six sets of lessons from the Barton tutoring program. [more]

The Only Tutor You'll Ever Need, effective/organized/creative/patient.

I have been trained in the following programs: Nanci Bell?s Visualizing and Verbalizing, Seeing Stars, and the Lindamood Phoneme Sequencing Program [LiPS]. By using these and other programs, and having the flexibility to incorporate my experience and education, I have been very successful in working with those who struggle with Dyslexia. There are also technological advances such as speech to print software and that which will read aloud to you that may be vital for success. It all depends upon what each student's needs are and what works best in each situation. To support each student, [more]

Experienced educator specialized in early childhood education

My 15 years of experience working with these bright, yet struggling learners has taught me that structural support systems and flexible curriculum are key. I use a multi-sensory teaching style in a well-structured environment that provides support to the dyslexic learner. For reading, I tend to focus on teaching whole word recognition before phonics, building on the dyslexic learner?s natural, picture-oriented learning style. In math, I focus on working whole to part, making learning hands-on and kinesthetic, building foundational skills and finding practical uses for math. I am familiar with [more]

A Montessori-certified preschool teacher with 15 years' experience, I have also earned a bachelor's degree in psychology and am currently nearing completion of a master's degree in marriage and family therapy. In addition, I have raised two children of my own, now tee [more]
