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]

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]

Certified Teacher with over 32 Years of Tutoring Experience

I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education, with an emphasis in reading. In addition, I have taught 1st grade for approximately 7 years. Our main focus point was reading. I believe strongly in Balanced Literacy and have taught using the 4 Blocks Method. 4 Blocks includes phonics instruction in the Working with Words segment. This is daily instruction in phonics (knowledge of sound/symbol relationship), phonemic awareness (auditory only, ability to hear and manipulate sounds with a SPOKEN word), phonological awareness (umbrella term which includes phonemic awareness).

WUSTL Graduate|English|Math|Study Skills|Tests|1st Grade---Adult

My formal education includes a Masters degree. I have taught and tutored students in 1st through 8th grade. Phonics instruction is a sensible, logical and easy-to-use tool for tutoring students who are learning to read. My tutoring experience enables me to help students with varying levels of basic phonetic skills. Before tutoring phonics, I first determine a student's phonemic awareness. The spoken English language is composed of only 44 different speech sounds. Reading fluency is achieved through frequent practice, tests, and reviews. I was certified as a substitute teacher. [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]

Ms. Kathy, fellow learner, reader, and writer

I feel that I am qualified to tutor in the subject of phonics because of the following reasons: (1) One of the requirements in my Methods of Teaching Reading course, I had to take and to pass a Phonics Exam. Specifically, I had to pass a How to Teach Phonics Exam. A major part of this exam was testing the undergraduate students on how well they knew and could teach the rules of phonics. In addition, I have had experience teaching Phonics when I held the position of Reading specialist. I am a Preschool Teacher who loves to teach Reading and Writing. Because I very much enjoy working with [more]

Cross-cat Primary Education K-6

Many of my students are behind in learning the letter sounds and matching them to the letter visually. I work with Jolly Phonics to help my students increase their letter and sound recognition. I have found that using both songs and worksheets increases results. I am the mother of 4 now grown children. I was not always a teacher, but I always dreamed of teaching. I worked in a factory for 12 years while my children were growing up and I missed so much of what they were doing in school. I chose to quit my job at the factory and go back to school to finish my teaching degree. I started [more]
