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

I have a good understanding of phonics. I've used phonetic-based methods for teaching reading. I've observed that phonetic knowledge enables reading success! I'm also able to teach students who read whole words instead of using phonics. I have lots of experience from teaching in public school, homeschooling and tutoring. 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]

Let's Learn Using Your Best Learning Styles!

I minored in English in college, as well as taking graduate courses in linguistics - which included phonics. As an elementary student, I studied phonics myself, and know how valuable the learning of sounds is to students struggling to learn to read. Hajime-mashite! Nice to meet you! My name is Anne and I have my IA K-12 music license, as well as my IN Professional Educator license. I've just added an ESL endorsement to my standard IA teaching license. Although music is my area of endorsement, I have been doing substitute teaching in many areas -- in particular, for middle school math teach [more]

Dedicated K-6 Teacher

My strong background in K-3 gave me plenty of practice in Phonics. I have taken many courses to increase my knowledge of the early student learning in Reading. I am a teacher who is passionate about learning. I have taught for over 20 years, and still enjoy seeing a child finally learn something that was difficult for them. My strongest subject is reading, with a strong focus in early reading skills. However, I have taught many subjects and enjoy them all. I taught mostly in Colorado, but am currently a substitute in Pennsylvania. I prefer one on one instruction, as it allows me to get to [more]

Heidi K. ACT Prep & Dyslexia Tutoring

I am certified in a leading phonics and reading program called the Wilson Reading System. I have taken 3 graduate courses on this system, and I have a certificate with credentials. You can search my name on the Wilson website. I began ACT Prep tutoring two years ago. I have helped all of my students improve their scores from the mid-teens to mid-to-high 20s in all subject areas. Students can just study for the ACT or they can choose to take a class I developed that improves their writing skills while studying and preparing for the ACT. I have taken the subject matter from the English and [more]
