"For the past ten years, I have taught in the public and private schools and tutoring franchises. I have taught reading and math on the elementary school level. I have enjoyed the children learning beyond their current expectations. Recently in the last five years, I seen the tremendous progress in the tutoring franchise environment for the children and private tutoring, also.

Initial approach to any tutoring student, I attempt to find out his/her outside activities that he/she enjoy. In return, I express my outside activities and I approach in a positive way how I can make tutoring sessions exciting and rewarding. Then I approach a short test to assess the child's strengths and weaknesses, and then I determine an initial approach when the tutoring session will begin. After each tutoring session, I will write a brief report what I accomplished in the tutoring session, After so many tutoring sessions, I will administer a final assessment of what the student has accomplished and advise a brief recommendation to the parents for the student's success.

With my success rate in tutoring public and private settings, I have enjoyed tutoring in the library with the children. Their faces light up when they are progressing in school.

My educational background from the Virginia Commonwealth University, my teaching experiences in public and private school, and my continuous tutoring sessions contribute to my success rate. The children keep me in a youthful frame of mind.

The phonics materials that I use and I remembered that I was a successful speller in my elementary years due to my phonics instructional background.

I would love for you to give me an opportunity to tutor you no matter what level you are currently. I am available Monday through Friday. Hope to hear from you.

I am interested in tutoring elementary level from third grade to sixth grade students. I am available Monday 9-1:00 Tuesday thru Friday 9-7:00; I am very flexible in my schedule." less...
