Tutoring English Reading Ages 5-8
Description
In this ongoing tutoring class, students will receive individualized instruction in English and reading skills.

Week 1- The instructor will conduct an informal assessment of the child's reading ability. This will be accomplished through reading a specifically selected passage, after communicating with the child's parent via classroom email. We will play some simple word games and complete activities to assess strength with phonics, sight words and grammar.

Week 2 and so on- The instructor will target specific skills and provide instruction and practice in these each week following the first week.

The instructor will maintain communication with the guardian to see how the instruction is affecting the child's proficiency, and will make adjustments as needed to the curriculum.
There will be informal assessment throughout the tutoring sessions.

Teacher
I hold a Bachelor's degree in Education and have taught for many years. I have loved reading since I read my first chapter book at age seven, so I enjoy teaching book studies.I have always had a passion for science. I love rocks and minerals, plants and herbs, and in general most sciences. I believe children, like myself as interested in the mysterious and the strange. Learning is an adventure. My mission is to make learning fun.
Some of my online courses include: book studies for kids from 8 to 15 years; STEM and STEAM classes; preschool classes including, phonics, pre-math, pre-language, and story times. I have a very popular series of classes on rocks, minerals, and crystals for ages 8-13. I also teach geography classes. My years as an elementary and as a preschool teacher have prepared me to teach these subjects effectively to a wide range of ages.
I enjoy teaching classes that highlight my own hobbies and interests such as gluten free cooking, and the mysterious and strange things in life. I can provide a listing of class I have developed upon request.
I am a passionate teacher with more than forty years experience teaching preschoolers to adults. I have taught in home-school preschools, private preschools and public preschools. I have trained teachers as an adjunct instructor at a community college, and have taught grades 2, 3, 4, and 5 in public and private schools. I've spent a large part of my career simultaneously holding workshops, and training and mentoring child care professionals while teaching kids full time. More than 100 child care professionals have earned a CDA credential under my tutelage. Many more have completed their associates degree in Early Childhood Education.
I have been a successful online ESL teacher for more than four years with VIPKid.
I also teach online for Outschool and just passed my second anniversary there. Some of my online courses include: book studies for kids from 8 to 15 years; STEM and STEAM classes; preschool classes including, phonics, pre-math, pre-language, and story times. I have a very popular series of classes on rocks, minerals, and crystals for ages 8-13.
While my professional experience is extensive, the heart of my passion is kids. I love playing with children to help them learn. Every child has his or her own learning style and as a teacher I strive to find how best to help children create their own learning.
I taught my first online class in 2004!
