Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
The goals for learners in my reading tutoring classes are to advance to grade-level reading proficiency and to become confident, fluent readers.

I received a Bachelor of Science: Elementary Education and Master of Arts: Education from Ball State University and was a 1st or 2nd grade elementary teacher for 33 years where I truly enjoyed teaching all subjects.

I also received a full academic year of graduate-level education and three years of continued ongoing professional development to become a certified Reading Recovery teacher. During those 4 years, I taught one-on-one reading to 1st graders and small literacy groups to 1st or 2nd graders. This was a very intense professional development model that ignited my passion for teaching reading. 

Most recently, I trained with The Reading Simplified Academy and became a Reading Simplified Expert teacher/tutor. I absolutely loved this amazing reading system and the continued support of the academy! It reinforced everything I had learned and experienced to be effective as a Reading Recovery and classroom teacher into an informed, efficient and engaging teaching methodology. I'm very excited to get started on the Outschool platform and to use the Reading Simplified system to accelerate a learner's progress toward grade level reading proficiency and fluency in a fun and engaging way!
Some time outside of class practicing the guided oral reading text will be recommended. This will allow learners to practice the sound-based decoding and word identification skills that were learned in class and accelerate their reading progress. This will also provide an opportunity for the learner to expand their knowledge of high-frequency words, improve fluency, and gain confidence and motivation in their reading.
👉 Dry-erase board, marker, and eraser 👉 All printable resources will be provided in the classroom.
👉 During the 1st class, two assessments will be given to determine a learner’s Streamlined Pathway, or scope and sequence. 
👉 On-going progress monitoring will be used to identify a student’s most pressing need.
30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
 👉 With permission to use granted, Reading Simplified reading passages from the Reading Simplified Academy will be used in this class. All passages are created by Reading Simplified and are mostly decodable, secular, and grade-level appropriate for ages 5 - 10. For more information about this program, visit:
 👉 To allow for a learner’s specific interest or need, an occasional decodable book may be used in place of the reading passage.
