Caring Elementary and Middle Grades Tutor

I can't wait to help your student! I have had lots of experience working with kids of all ages and backgrounds. I grew up with 7 siblings and was blessed to excel in school, music, and athletics. In summers off during college, I worked at a camp and helped kids to be their best. During spring breaks, I worked with kids as well, doing after-school programs, VBS, and working at over-seas orphanages and schools. My first teaching experience was an eye-opening summer in Ghana, teaching middl... [more]


Reading

Recently, I had the chance to help a student who was not a very good reader become a great reader for his age! This is a very exciting process for both student and teacher. If your student does not currently love reading, let me be the one to encourage this in him or her. There are so many different books out there--I'm sure we can find something that will bring reading to life for your child! Don't hesitate to contact me.


English

I have loved English since junior high school--my dad always teases me about how serious I was about my homework for diagramming sentences! And while I won't focus on that so much, I do hope to encourage success for your student with the beautiful and complex English language, including grammar, writing complex and unique sentences, increasing your vocabulary, and various writing exercises. Please let me know how I can help!


Elementary (K-6th)

I have worked with elementary children for several years. While living in PA, I worked as a teacher's aide at an OH Community Charter school, teaching grades 4-10. I have also worked at children's after-school programs, VBS programs, orphanages, and have taught overseas on mission trips. I believe it is important to instill a love of learning into children and not wait until they have already formed bad habits. I have maintained clear background records with the state of Ohio for the past several years and passed the background check with WyzAnt as well. Thanks for your consideration. Ruth


ADHD

I worked for Summit Academy in Warren, OH for four years. It is a Community Charter School specifically geared towards students with ADD/ADHD. I earned an extensive amount of knowledge concerning education and care for students with these struggles during my time at Summit, and though I am still learning, have gained a lot of skills in education. I worked with students ranging from grades 4-10 at this school. I learned many techniques to help ADD/ADHD students and have resources to use for successful lessons as well.


Fitness

I received my RYT-200 in June of 2014 and would like to be reconsidered for tutoring in this area. I teach gentle yoga classes, stretching and general health and fitness to youth and adults. I also blog regularly on these topics.
