Effective English Tutor Focusing on Reading, Comprehension + Test Prep

I have taken several phonics courses at university as well as with private vendors and received certification to instruct in those programs, (First Focus Phonics; LiPs with Lindamood-Bell Learning Processes, Reading Revolution). I employ methods, techniques, strategies and use any materials from them in my practice as determined by the student's level, ability and need. I try to avoid books with pictures of the words and show pictures only after the sound, syllable/s are comfortably reproduced through reading and sounding letters, digraphs, etc., only. Sight words are introduced after master [more]

Especially in Kindergarten for 3-4 months at beginning of school year I taught the letters and the sounds that go along with each.

Teacher - K-6 - 10 years teaching experience

I taught 1st grade for two years and have worked with all grade levels advancing children in reading. I have run leveled trading groups in 2nd grade teaching students to isolate sounds, sound out, diagraph recognition, letter sounds, vowel blends, and more. I have found assessment of students reading levels to be an essential first step. Then I put them into small groups and read with them everyday using leveled books geared towards the teaching of phonetics and sight word recognition as well. I'm a Bay Area native and have a degree in Liberal Studies and Education. I also have a multiple teac [more]

CTC Credentialed English, Reading, Writing teacher with PhD

I am trilingual (Persian, German, English) with an added, but limited proficiency in Spanish. I have experienced my three languages within their native contexts; that is, I have lived in both Iran and Germany for a number of years and I am currently living in the US. My interaction with language exists on a phonetic level. In other words, I recognize phonics in order to bridge language acquisition, construction, and expression. Phonics complement morphemes which together complement the orthography of words within a given language. I have worked with children as part of the No Child Left Behind [more]

credentialed teacher, linguist and writer

I have a clear California teaching credential for multiple subjects. From 2007 to 2011 I worked as a Title I remedial reading and math teacher in San Francisco through Catapult Learning, a national company funded by the federal government. The majority of my classes were in reading, and I taught dozens of lessons in phonics to beginning readers in 1st and 2nd grade. I still have my lesson plans, and I use some of them to help U.S. newcomers to learn English. After a long career in journalism, I gradually began to switch to teaching in 2001, and became a full-time teacher in 2006. I have spent [more]
