Need a little homework help? Maybe you're having difficulties in one of your classes? Adult going back to school? Or possibly you just want to learn something new! Whatever your needs, I'm available to help. I would love to help you reach your potential. If I don't teach your subject, I'll help you find someone who does.

I've been a classroom educator for over 20 years. I taught classroom Music, Band, Choir, First Grade and Beginning Computer courses at the college level during this time. I began tutoring before I started my college studies in education. I have tutored Reading and Reading Comprehension, Math through Algebra, English/Grammar/Phonics, World History, Science, Study Skills, and have provided Homework Help.

My graduate degree is in Elementary Education and Reading. I enjoy teaching Reading at any level. I have previously taught Reading privately, in small groups, and in the classroom at the first grade level. As my undergraduate degree is in Music Education, I have also taught Flute, Piano and led Bands.

It is my belief that two of the most important academic subjects are Reading and Math. Reading in Kindergarten through Second Grade is primarily reading to learn to read and reading for pleasure. However, beginning around Third grade, reading is used to learn other subjects. Students are expected to begin reading textbooks and other material. If they are not strong in Reading, the other subjects will be very difficult. Of course we use Math everyday of our lives - and Reading! - and for that reason alone Math is important. However, I'm often asked why it's necessary to learn so much Math and learn more advanced Math that isn't always found in everyday life. One reason is "the more you know, the farther you can go!" When you limit the information you learn, you are limiting your possibilities for the future. Math is found in so many other subjects and careers - Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Economics, Psychology, Sociology, Sculpture, Drawing, Music, Engineering - and the list goes on! Of course anything that uses the computer uses Math. Today, that's everywhere. Finally, using Math requires you to think logically and to use the skill in solving problems. It helps you be precise in thoughts and words.

Aside from reading, which is one of my favorite activities, I thoroughly enjoy water activities such as swimming, boating and white water rafting. In addition, I enjoy board games and card games. I frequently play poker online and watch televised games. And yes, I like puzzles. I like Word puzzles and Math puzzles. Sudoku puzzles can be a lot of fun and quite challenging.

Services INCLUDED in my hourly fee: 
-INDIVIDUALIZED instruction 
-Telephone assistance between lessons
-Communication with Teachers and Schools
-Communication with You
-A Learning Plan that is used to develop specific lesson goals

If you choose me as your tutor, you can expect 3 things of me: Prompt, Thorough, Prepared! In addition, you should expect that I will ask you to do work to be prepared for your lessons. I look forward to hearing from you so we can begin soon!

Subjects:ADD, Composition, Learning Disability, Proofreading, Reading, Special Needs, Spelling, Study Skills, Test Preparation, Vocabulary, Writing

Description: REASONS STUDENTS GET POOR GRADES
There are a number of possible reasons that students get poor grades. Some are external factors, such as the subject matter is too difficult, the teacher is hard to understand, and problems at home. Other reasons have to do with student attitudes, such as didn't do homework and goofed off in class. Finally, there are reasons related to personal issues, such as test anxiety and problems concentrating. If your child has been getting poor grades and you see the reason for it, you can try to rectify the situation and get back on the right track.

ADD

The National Institutes for Health define Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), also known as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), as a “problem with inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity, or a combination…[that are] out of the normal range for a child’s age and development.”  The exact cause of the disorder is unknown, but approximately 3-5 percent of school-aged children are diagnosed with ADD, according to the National Institute of Mental Health. 


Symptoms of ADD

Many of the symptoms associated with ADD are frequently attributed to normal childhood behavior.  As a result, it’s not unusual for the disorder to go undiagnosed for years.  While many children exhibit some or all of these symptoms from time to time, children with ADD exhibit these behaviors frequently, often on a daily basis, and in more than one setting (e.g. home, school, extracurricular activities, etc).  Below is a list of symptoms that are commonly associated with ADD:

  • Difficulty focusing or staying focused for extended periods of time
  • Difficulty following instructions and completing assigned tasks
  • Lack of organizational skills
  • Forgetfulness
  • Easily distracted.  Children with ADD often begin projects, but do not complete them
  • Inability to pay attention to details; make careless mistakes
  • Procrastination
  • Inability to keep up with conversations.  It is common for children with ADD not to listen to others and interrupt when someone else is speaking


Diagnosing ADD

Because many of the symptoms of ADD mimic those of other disorders, children who are suspected of suffering from ADD should see a doctor for a proper diagnosis.  The child’s doctor will most likely ask parents and teachers to complete questionnaires to determine how many symptoms the child exhibits, when they began, how long they’ve lasted and whether or not the child exhibits them in multiple settings.  All of this information is critical to making a diagnosis of ADD.  The child’s doctor may also administer psychological testing to rule out other conditions and aid in the diagnosis. 


Treating ADD

Successfully treating ADD often requires a multi-faceted approach that includes a combination of medication and behavioral therapy.  In addition, parent and teacher involvement are critical to helping a child manage the disorder and succeed in school.  Even after a child is diagnosed, follow-up visits to the doctor are crucial for assessing the effectiveness of the child’s treatment.  These visits can help determine if modifications should be made to the treatment plan.

Because students who suffer from ADD often struggle in school, it is important that ADD be identified and treated as soon as possible.  Some techniques that may help a child manage the disorder, include:

  • Maintaining a regular routine.  Children with ADD benefit from consistency.
  • Limiting distractions 
  • Rewarding good behavior

In addition, many children benefit from working with an ADD tutor who can help them stay focused on their schoolwork and provide the one on one attention they need to succeed.
