I work hard to learn about my students and find out what I can do to help them reach their educational goals. If a student is not understanding a concept, I will approach the concept in a diffferent way to differentiate instruction.
I have a Master's degree in Reading and Elementary Education. I have an EdS in Technology in Schools. I am a Colorado certified teacher in K-6 Education, 7-12 English/LA and K-12 School Librarian. I am also a licensed Principal.
I charge $25.00 per hour for tutoring. This time includes 55 minutes of tutoring and 5 minutes for scheduling and answering general questions.
When I was fresh out of college with a communications degree I ended up with a job as a receptionist. Very quickly I decided I wanted to give back and to support the success of students in school. That was 23 years ago.
I have worked with all age levels from Kindergarten to 12th Grade. I have worked with gifted students, special education students. I have a lot of experience working with at-risk students and helping remedial students improve their skills.
I recently worked with a student who is an English speaker, but has a first grade reading level and is in the 10th grade. His schooling only started a few years ago. We did an interest inventory to get an idea of where he struggles and excels with reading. Through some one-on-one tutoring and listening to him read aloud I bagan to see where the holes where in his reading instruction. I have many resources to use to help students be successful with reading.
Advocate for yourself. If you know or think you need help in reading, then tell someone. There is nothing wrong with needing help. I can help you be successful and go on to acheive your educational and life goals.
It is very helpful, if the student can answer the following questions... Do you like to read? Do you like to write? What areas of reading would you like help with or are you willing to explore your needs together.
