Caring elementary school tutor and piano teacher

Math, Dyslexia, Sped, Unusual Situations.

I am certified in Orton-Gillingham reading instruction and received training in reading instruction as part of my masters degree. I love working with students and enjoy tackling unusual and difficult problems. I have a wide range of experience teaching, and I've worked with students of many different ages, backgrounds, and ability levels. I have a no-drama, tortoise-beats-the-hare approach to teaching, and no matter what your situation is, there's a good chance I've dealt with something like it before. I'm comfortable teaching and tutoring math through high school trigonometry. I am certifie [more]

ESL & French Tutor

Phonics are vital to understanding the nuances of any language, and it is always better to learn sooner than later. I have always used my language skills to my advantage. As an ESL assistant teacher, I would read aloud passages from one of our books to students. This required an understanding of phonics and how words are spoken. I am an experienced French tutor. I graduated from Loyola University Chicago in May 2016 with a B.A. in French. I have taken French for 12 years (or ever since third grade in elementary school). I have read many novels in French, including En Attendant Godot, L'?trange [more]

Online Tutor - UCLA Grad, Math B.S.

I spent a year in South Korea teaching phonics to students in grades 1, 4, and 5 of elementary school. When I first started teaching these students, the majority of them could not sing the alphabet song. I started at ground zero with them, and the upper grade children were able to phonetically sound out the words in simplified versions of Rumpelstiltskin and The Little Red Hen on their own within 10 months of receiving hour-long lessons twice a week. I would first teach them the letters of the alphabet and the sound that each letter makes. For letters like c and g, we'd stick with the 'hard' [more]

Patient and caring certified elementary teacher

As an experienced first grade teacher, I have great knowledge of phonics. I understand how to teach children phonemic awareness, concepts of print, and reading comprehension. Knowing phonics, along with these other main components of reading, is key in becoming a fluent reader. In first grade there is a lot of emphasis on phonics, and since I have taught first grade for four years, I am highly qualified to tutor in this area. I am a certified elementary teacher who worked with first graders for Chicago Public Schools for four years before deciding to be a stay-at-home mom. I have a master's de [more]

Patient, loving primary literacy and math tutor!

I believe that I am qualified to teach phonics because this is a subject that I teach to my Kindergarten students everyday. Phonics is a subject that students need to know and understand in order to learn how to read. I teach my students various phonics skills daily and weekly and think that I would be very good at helping a student with their phonics work. I have taught preschool for 5 years and Kindergarten for 4 years in the same school setting and we use phonics, and phonemic awareness daily. [more]
