K-6th Academic tutor with Special Ed. Experience

I was a special education teacher for over 12 years. I have worked with students whose abilities ranged from nonreaders to simply needing extra practice. I use several methods and materials to help my students progress in their reading skills. I believe a student learns faster if the materials machine their interests and attempt to bring in such materials as often as I can. I am Alicia Forrest. I have been a special educator for over 12 years in grades K-6. My students have ranged from needing simple modification to having moderate autism. I am accustomed to fitting my instruction methods to e [more]

Analogizer: Promoting Mental Panspermatism

Working with children of all ages has always been one of my top strengths and it keeps my mind active, searching for new connections. I usually learn something new or create an enhanced thought pattern when teaching someone else and this is important to me since I strive for constant expansion. I grew up as the oldest child and have been essentially the male guardian to my 14 year old sister. Before the age of 2, she was able (among other skills) to say the alphabet backward in less th...

I mainly tutored accounting classes for five years at Green River Community College and Washington State University. I tutored students in introductory and intermediate financial and managerial accounting classes one-on-one the entire time and learned how to convey the information so that it could be easily understood. Later, I started teaching classes that would review what... [more]

40 years tutoring, 25 years as private school teacher

I have learned superior methods for teaching READING, which include phonics and reading for comprehension. I have been able to implement these approaches for over ten years in a Washington state private school. In Texas, I was a reading specialist for 7th and 8th graders reading at a 2nd and 3rd grade reading level. I have tutored in reading, math and other subjects for about 40 years. I can help your child be successful, confident, and encouraged throughout the process. Let's get started! Sincerely, Wendy S. [more]

A Gift for Teaching

Reading support comes in many forms: sometimes students haven't made the basic sound-symbol associations needed to read; other times, they need to learn basic sight words or build fluency based on well learned patterns. Still other time, grammar patterns and changes are difficult. Lastly, reading comprehension skills and vocabulary skills play a big part in successfully navigating the reading tasks. I have worked with new learners, students with dyslexic patterns and advanced students in reading skills. [more]

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

I have been a reading tutor for over 15 years. I worked as a co-teacher and special education assistant for exceptional learning students which span the ages of second to 12th grade. I use a two-step process that includes both reading and writing. 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 build their self-confidence to reach their ultimate potential. I worked for 7 [more]

Hi, my name is Natasha! I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor's degree in Political Science and Women and Gender Studies at Pacific Lutheran University.

Learn to Love to Learn with an Experienced, Creative Teacher

In my thirty-five years of teaching, I have worked with students from first to twelfth grade, but more than half of that time has been spent with secondary students. My focus is reading/literature, writing (both creative and formal styles), drama and speech, and I am an "encouraging critic" of English skills who eventually teaches students to critique and correct their own work. As a drama teacher, I have produced and directed over fifty full-length plays on the high school level, as well as ... [more]
