Initially I taught toddlers through grade 6 in technology and art, and acted as an assistant to the teacher in several classrooms. After a few years I obtained m... [more]

Proven results in Writing, English/ESL & College Prep!

As an Anthropology major at UCLA, I studied Linguistics and Speech Patterns in different communities all over the world, and also specifically in Los Angeles. I understand the basic structure of language, individual letters and phoneme structure. I have the patience to teach letters and sounds and how language is formed. I use techniques with the mouth, teaching students how to understand the different manners of articulation (fricative, voiced and non voiced, etc). I truly have a passion for learning and for teaching and helping others- learning doesn't end in the classroom! Hi, everyone! T [more]

Knowledgeable, Creative, Credentialed English/ESL Tutor

Learning English sounds is critical to the development of speaking clearly. Teaching phonics (sounding out of words) includes a variety of topics from understanding how to divide words into syllables, to focusing on consonant digraphs (two consonant sounds together form one sound), to dipthongs (same sounds, different spellings), to many other aspects important to learning the English language. Non-native speakers often have problems with the "r" controlled sounds, with distinguishing between "v" and "b" sounds, and with digraphs. This is usually the result of not understanding how to use [more]

strong reputation as a caring and professional teacher

The school where I taught for 37 years is a Carden school. Mae Carden is the founder of the Carden method, which pioneered the teaching of reading by phonics when she opened the first Carden school in New York. Young students in pre-K and in kindergarten learn the sound that each consonant makes. Ex: b - buh c - cuh d - duh, etc... However, a vowel, when it is alone in a syllable (cat), will sound differently if it is with another vowel in the syllable (cape). Students apply these sounds by learning and writing the "vowel chart" daily. Every child is able to read and to write sim [more]

Reading Spec'list: Exec.Funct.Disorder/ADD/Dyslexia;Writing;Math;ESL

I have been a reading specialist for over 35 years and believe in the importance of early phonics learning. For K-3 students, I assess weaknesses and remediate using a phonics program full of relevant and fun activities to provide a solid basis for the demands of reading. For 4/5/6 students, I remediate phonics deficits through reading specifically prepared materials designed with the student's diagnosed weaknesses in mind. I have worked with dyslexia and other learning disabilities to help students be successful grade level learners. [more]

Experienced Elementary School Teacher and Tutor

I taught first grade for three years. The basis of teaching kids to read in the first grade is phonics. We practiced this many different ways including moving our bodies, practicing placement of our tongues in our mouths, as well as reading from text. I also worked with struggling readers, those two or more grade levels below, with a reading program called Language! Where more than an hour was spent with upper elementary students working on phonemic awareness and phonics. Teaching is my passion. I was an elementary school teacher for 10 years and teacher of the year in 2010. During this [more]

Professional math tutor, College Alg, SAT/ACT, Placements, K-12, ASVAB

Learning phonics early as a student is vital to being a successful reader. I work with the student through workbooks, flashcards, writing exercises, visual aids and assessments to learn phonics well. I teach them proper pronunciation, long & short vowels, diphthongs, consonant blends, vowel pairs, prefixes, suffixes, phonemes, synonyms, homonyms, antonyms, etc. I challenge them to learn more and appreciate learning. I instill in them a desire for learning and to do their best. When I work continually with a student, that student is usually at the top of their class and has developed a posit [more]

Versatile Tutor: Writing, Reading, Public Speaking, Resumes and More!

Having successfully taught reading in primary school to struggling students, including those identified with dyslexia, I am capable of teaching phonics to any age student requiring specific phonetic instruction. I received excellent graduate level instruction in literacy at Salem College. I am comfortable creating my own method catered specifically to a particular student's needs as well as utilizing an existing program requested by a school or parents. I consistently make the process comfortable and engaging, which leads to increased confidence and improved results for the student. [more]
