PhD. Reading/spelling/writing (certified Barton Reading)

I have a Ph.D. in psychology. After starting out teaching psychology and writing to college students, I then homeschooled my children for over a decade. In my early years of working with my own children, I realized that some students pick up reading with limited teaching, while others require explicit instruction in phonics. In the years since that I have had the opportunity to receive training in how to teach struggling students how to read, using phonics as the backbone of the instruction. The students that need my help typically need to have phonics broken down into individual sounds and at [more]

Notre Dame Grad teaches all ages!

Hello! My name is Mackenzie and I am a recent college grad (Bachelor of Science in Biology from the University of Notre Dame) and I also love to teach! I work nearly full time as a scribe in a cardiology practice in the Metro East. In my free time, I read, knit, and watch Netflix; my favorite show is Friends! My tutoring approach is deceptively simple: anyone can learn anything, it's just a matter of having it taught correctly. I encourage an informal, friendly environment, where students a... [more]

Experienced and patient tutor

I have college credit in Child Psychology and Human Growth and Development. I taught my first child to read with a phonics approach, and he was reading by the age of three and a half years. I tutored a second-grader in Reading using a phonics approach and his mother reported how surprised she was at the big words he could read out of the newspaper. Since then, I have increased my knowledge and understanding of phonics, and I have located many excellent resources. For best results, phonics needs to be synthetic, teaching the child how to blend sounds together to sound out words, and systemati [more]

Skilled English Tutor Specializing in Reading, Writing, and Test Prep

I spent three years during my undergraduate studies at UCSD tutoring as an "America Reads" tutor. As a part of that program, we helped children ages 5-10 to learn letters and sounds in an effort to bring their reading skills up to grade level. I also tutored reading/phonics with young children (4-7) on the reading floor at Huntington Learning Center for 2.5 years. While I tutor a variety of subjects, I particularly enjoy working with students who are preparing for the verbal and writing segments of the ACT, SAT and GRE. I have found that these standardized tests come during a very transitional [more]

Tutor who believes it takes a big heart to help shape little minds

The sounds that make up words are critical components of reading. I believe that the different letter combinations and sounds of words are very important to comprehensive word understanding and reading! I am currently going into my junior year at Illinois State University for an Elementary Education. Being one of the oldest of 9 siblings, being around children has been my whole life! I knew from a fairly early age that I was meant to help shape the minds of children. I read a quote once that said "I know I'm not going to change the world, but I think I could spark the mind of someone wh [more]

Writing Professor, Phonics Instructor, Published Author

As a trained reading aide, I worked with K-2nd grade students for eight years teaching phonics and reading. I was certified in the Tucker Signing method and learned how to develop personalized interventions according to each student's needs. I have experience teaching letters and sounds to hundreds of students, many of whom were not able to learn through traditional methods. I believe a child's learning style should be considered in one-on-one tutoring. With five years' experience as a university writing instructor and eight years working in lower elementary teaching phonics and designing rea [more]
