"I taught first, second and fourth graders in the Arlington Independent School District for forty-one years. Since retiring, I have been hired as a tutor for first and second graders in reading and math at elementary schools in Arlington. I have also done a limited amount of tutoring through a private foundation in Fort Worth.

I am the type of person who enjoys people. I have a track record of successfully working with parents. From my experience, I believe that it is essential for a child to master the fundamentals of learning in the first few grades in order to be successful in the years ahead. Once a child is behind in academic skills, it tends to lower self esteem and causes a variety of social issues. This needs to be addressed as early as possible.

I use Systematic Sequential Phonics and Words Their Way with beginning readers. I have leveled readers to accommodate students at their own ability level. I have testing materials to determine a student's developmental level and to set expectations. For children who need to develop comprehension skills , I focus on teaching a child through the analysis of reading passages. I also address weaknesses in written expression through a systematic approach both in the writing of fiction and non-fiction.

I graduated with a Bachelor of Science Degree from Louisiana State University and have had many hours of specialized trading through my school district.

I have a great deal of patience and love to work with children in order to build academic strength. I find that to be very rewarding." less...
