Experienced teacher supports student success in skill building

In reading, I combine a systematic phonetic approach to build accuracy, including phonemes and lists by patterns or difficulty, monitored oral reading to build fluency, vocabulary development in context and by building from components, and comprehension development through an understanding of the relationship of ideas in a passage. Lessons cover all components using topics of interest to the students and introducing new topics and genres. Errors made in reading are addressed through spontaneous lists of patterns after the text reading that day and through systematic study the next lesson. All [more]

An enthusiastic and experienced English teacher at your service!

I have taught English at the high school level for the past nine years at a school outside of Boston. During that time I taught my students a number of successful reading strategies to help them not only in their English classes, but in all their academic classes. For seven years I also tutored students after school at a program called Homework Help where I worked with high school students and would help them in a number of subjects (though English was my specialty) with a variety of homework assignments, writing and reading assignments, organization and study skills, etc. [more]
