My literacy tutoring, for grades K-3, focuses on, but is not limited to, the following areas:
 

Reading

  • decoding strategies
  • learning to read with fluency & expression, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, short stories, chapter books
  • reading comprehension
  • critical thinking – summarizing, making inferences, forming conclusions, predictions, creating alternate solutions, etc.

Writing

  • word study, spelling, grammar
  • editing
  • sentence structure, paragraph writing
  • creative writing, narratives, poetry, etc.
  • non-fiction writing

Study Skills

  • how to study for tests
  • test taking skills
  • homework & project help
I strive to create weekly lessons that are specific to your child's needs while being both fun and challenging.

 

My Motto Is ... "Practice Makes it Easy"

The small jobs assigned for homework will help to solidify concepts and make good habits second nature.

MATH TUTORING K-3

As a parent, I understand that when children struggle with math, it lowers their self confidence, and they often feel "dumb" or that they'll "never get it". My aim is to give your child the tools to develop his or her problem solving skills and understanding. I want your child to bring me a school test with a big smile on his or her face and tell me it was "easy"!
 
My mathematics tutoring, for grades K-3, focuses on, but is not limited to, the following areas:
  • numeracy, the operations, problem solving, memorization 
  • measurement, telling time 
  • geometry, 2D & 3D shapes 
  • decimals, fractions 
  • patterning, early algebra 
  • data management, probability 
  • studying & test taking
At lesson, your child will often be working with hands-on Montessori materials with me. These materials help to take the mystery out of math, making it a concrete concept. I always assign weekly homework jobs because "practice makes it easy"!
