I teach all forms of literacy including listening, speaking, writing, and reading English. I teach grammar, phonics, word recognition and comprehension, vocabulary, spelling, and effective, expressive, and creative writing skills. I have been an avid reader and writer ever since my elementary school days. At college, I received a perfect score on my departmental English exam. I have three education degrees: A double bachelor's in elementary education and music, and a master's in reading. I am presently a Mesa Laubach Literacy Council Board Member and Tutor. I love to help students become more proficient in the English language.
I teach phonics to younger children to develop their reading, writing and speech. I put a heavy emphasis on developing the child's awareness of phonemes, which are the most basic building blocks for all words in the English language. I will improve your child's ability to hear, identify, and manipulate over 40+ phonemes, and teach them how they correspond to the intricate spelling patterns that are found in our language. I have taught all forms of English and language arts from pre-school to adults in their 50's from foreign countries. I am an expert on pronunciation, vocabulary, spelling, reading, writing as well as more complex mechanics such as sentence structure, subject-verb agreement, comprehension, etc.
I had phonics as an official course from 1st to 6th grade - in total, 6 years. I am also a native English speaker. Using a systematic approach, I have helped elementary-age students build their knowledge of phonics, including vowel recognition, through a variety of enjoyable exercises. I also use online resources for homework and practice outside of lessons. Older students review the basics and then focus on prefixes, suffixes, and Latin and Greek roots, also supported by regular vocabulary study on the side.
I have been teaching for 25 years. I have worked with students of all ages from pre-kindergarten to university. I have tutored students in a wide variety of subjects, including phonics.
