Experienced Tutor and Expert Literacy and Writing Teacher

Even though I love literature, I've always had students who benefited from basic phonics instruction to help them read faster and spell better. The words in the English language are spelled just like the word sounds in only 65% of our words. But there are many easy rules, review exercises, and remedial work available for all ages to help tackle some of the words that do not sound like they look. I've guided beginning readers from non-readers to fluent grade level readers in as little as 9 months. [more]

Elementary Reading and Math Teacher

I have been teaching phonics for many years. I currently teach phonics to Kindergarten, first and second grade students in my position as a reading and math Intervention Specialist at an Elementary school. I teach phonemic awareness, as well as phonics skills such as sounding out CVC words and words with blends. With my students I use a program called SIPPS, which stands for Systematic Instruction in Phonological Awareness, Phonics, and Sight Words. I also have had additional training in teaching phonics through the reading certificate program I am currently in at UCSD Extension. [more]

The Language Maven (and beyond)

I have worked with elementary students on language arts and phonics for over 10 years, helping young students find the connections between sights and sounds. I can help students move from combining individual letter sounds (phonemes) such as in 'cat' or 'dog', to consonant blends (where two consonants form a new sound together) such as in blend or chair. Eventually, the student begins to develop the confidence to sound out new words, with new phonetic combinations, all on his or her own. At that point, a new student begins begins their journey into the world of reading enjoyment. [more]

Elementary Credential, over 30 years experience

I have an Elementary Life Credential which authorizes me to provide instruction for grades K through 6. With over 30 years of classroom and tutoring experience with the Los Angeles Unified School District, I have helped hundreds of students acquire the phonemic awareness skills necessary to learn basic reading. However, that is only the beginning component in becoming a grade level reader. Equally as important as knowing how to pronounce and blend letter sounds and words properly is learning to read with understanding. Mastery of reading comprehension along with the acquisition of phonetic ski [more]

Reading Specialist

As a reading specialist, I have a large focus on phonics and how to help students learn to read. ?Students that have a difficulty with reading often times do not have a strong grasp of phonemic awareness. ?I teach this through games and reading books that focus on certain phonics skills. ? ? ? I have been teaching for 11 years and have a masters degree as a Reading Specialist. For the past 4 years I have been out of the classroom and doing private tutoring.

English and Language Arts Tutor

As an elementary school teacher working with first graders I learned how to teach phonics to children. I learned how it's done in schools and the way the teachers teach phonics in classrooms using the OCR. Students learn the sound each letter makes first and then they learn to combine them with different sounds to make a word. For example a-e makes an /ey/ sound. Also as a linguistics/TESL major student I learned how to teach phonics and phonetics to adults. I have taken courses in teaching phonics to elementary school students, as well as phonetics in order to better understand the sounds [more]
