Phonics - I have spent the last year as a volunteer Phonics/Reading tutor using the Wilson Method at the Drake Adult Literacy Center in Des Moines. I continue to teach adults one-on-one twice/week as well as help train new volunteers in the Wilson method, which uses a magnetic board, word cards, writing, speaking, and listening activities. I also teach Phonics in the ESL (English as a Second Language) beginners class at DMACC in Des Moines. The first semester has just finished, and I will be continuing to teach the summer and fall sessions. I love teaching how to learn to read through phoneti [more]

Skillful and experienced elementary/highschool tutor

While I've liked it all, I especially enjoy concentrating with one student at a time and addressing their particular needs. And it works! I'll work patiently and kindly but progress steadily toward our goal(s). I'm conscientious: I think about your student between [more]

Kind tutor who wants to make learning fun!

I've always liked helping students learn. Throughout school I helped my peers and my siblings with their school work. I even helped my mom with her math when she was in college! I've taught and tutored preschoolers through college students. While I was earning my B.A. in psychology, I tutored psychology and helped students with their English, history, and political science work. Then when getting my M.S. in clinical psychology, I tutored statistics and even taught my own sections of intro to ... [more]
