40 years tutoring, 25 years as private school teacher

At Holy Family School, in Lacey, WA, we used a phonetic approach to encoding and decoding words. Our students were very good readers and spellers. We also learned how other languages affected our English language (for example, ch will say chuh as in church, but also kuh as in orchestra, which is an influence of the Greek language. Additionally, ch will say shuh as in chauffeur, which is from the French. I have taught full time in private schools from Kindergarten to 8th grade for over ten years. I have taught part-time as well for another ten. I have been tutoring for about 40 years. I love w [more]

Personalized, student centered, fun tutor to make learning fun again.

I've used phonics to teach my own sons how to read as well as when I worked in as a special education assistant for 10 years. Teaching the sounds of letters is vitally important in knowing how to pronounce words and eventually string those words together and read. I also use phonics as a tool when tutoring dyslexia students. I love helping people reach their full potential and learn the many ways of learning that do not stereotype each individual student. It has been my pleasure to work with several hundred students by improving their test scores, and grades, but more importantly to help them [more]

Professional Elementary Education Tutor

As a 3rd grade teacher on the Navajo Indian Reservation for 3 years, I taught phonics skills to my students. We had been mandated to teach using Whole Language (which I did); however, I knew my students would have been at a disadvantage in taking the standardized tests if I had not taught the phonics skills. I have been a full-time 3rd grade teacher in Arizona for three years. Additionally, I have over 18 years worth of experience as a guest teacher in grades K-5 in the Franklin Pierce School District. I have learned new ways of teaching math concepts and have learned much in the area of [more]
