Language Arts/Reading Tutor for Grades 5 - 8

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught or tutored 8-12 year olds for the last 18 years. I did teach music to K - 8 students for 7 years also. I am also certified to teach in 5th through 8th grade all subjects.


General Music

My original degree is in Music Education. I taught General Music for 5 years at the elementary level before switching to the general classroom.


Piano

My original degree is in Music Education with an emphasis on piano performance. I have taken over 16 years of lessons. While living in Texas, I was part of a piano consortium of 10 piano teachers who semi annually would put on performance to display their students accomplishments.


Study Skills

I have taught study skills to 6th grade students for over 15 years. We looked at learning styles, organizational habits, and methods that could be used to study more efficiently.
