I am a certified teacher for elementary grades 1-6 and deaf/HH students preK-grade 12 with a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's degree in special education. I taught grade 1 for more than twenty years and preschool for five years. I use a combination of phonics, phonemic awareness, word patterns, linking prior knowledge, sight word identification, predicting, comprehension study, process writing, and fluency practice to improve reading and writing skills.
Homework Offered❖ Daily reading is encouraged. This can be the learner reading independently, the learner reading aloud, or the parent (or sibling) reading to the learner. ❖ I will write a brief note to the student following each tutoring session. I encourage the student to write back to me each week. I call this "dialogue journaling"
Assessments OfferedInformal assessment will occur during each session as I work with the learner and observe the learner's skill development. Periodically, I will use a bit more formal assessment to determine growth.
❖ Paper/notebook ❖ Pencil or pen ❖ Small white board ❖ Dry erase marker ❖ Dry eraser (felt works well) ❖ Any homework assignments where guidance is needed ❖ Letter cards printed and cut out from file provided by the teacher
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
I encourage parents to communicate with me any questions or concerns regarding instruction or needs.
