Do you want to tutor your own child but need help or ideas
I will gladly help parents find curriculum and techniques to help them with any studies they wish to do at home if they wish to tutor their own child, but need a starting place. If you want more than a 1 session starting place, I can monitor with one session a month or more, depending on what the parents or clients needs are. Both parent and child will need to attend the monthly session as I will show you techniques and give ideas to the parents as we go. If you choose this option, I advise having some evaluations done by me or your school system, so we can be a little more certain that the proper recommendations are being made. If you already have testing from your school or other sources, please bring it with you-full test pages, not just the
group classes are cancelled this year
Will still be doing
Berard AIT Sessions, with some changes for scheduling -no overlaps in waiting area.
Irlen will still be done starting in June, but again some adaptations will be made.
Approaches to Learning
This is one of the things that I spend time with for each student. I look at learning issues, visual and auditory. I look at learning styles and personality traits that change the way a person or child learns and explain to them and their parents how this information can be used to make learning easier for the client. I, myself, am dyslexic, so have a unique understanding of learning issues and how it can interfere with your ability to read, do math, and memorize items. I have tried to learn how to learn and pass that on to my clients. I like the challenge of figuring out where the learning gaps are and finding the best way to fill them in.
Individual Tutoring offered for ages 5-adults Most subjects available.
I find most people want tutoring in math and/or reading, but I also enjoy tutoring in English, history, science, organizional skills and adaptive skills as needed.
I do not like to "teach for a test" nor do I do common core math, but when working with adults or older teens, if that is all you need, I will teach that way, as long as you just need to know how to get the answer, not show common core steps. For the rest, learning is a process and it takes time to do it right, so do not expect "quick fixes" as I try for more permanent ones. I do have some programs which might increase learning speeds, depending on why learning has been difficult in the past.
Most subjects are not in a void or individual in the world in which we live and so if you come for math, you might get a little reading or in science you will probably encounter math and so on.
Individual appointments can be made for 2 or 3 days a week and you may choose 30, 45 or 60 minutes sessions.
I am looking forward to meeting you and helping you or those you know who could use my services.
Notices & FAQ
In an effort to keep my basic prices low, I am now charging a supply and copy charge of $10.00 every 6 months for private tutoring and/or for the 8 week class session ($15.00 if special paper is needed). In addition, there may be book fees, for consumable items. Science, gardening, sewing & embroidery each have several consumable items and a few things you will need to supply.
Approximate dates for group classes.
Group classes will be offered when I have enough requests. Starting dates and days of week will depend on group needs. See Summer Group Classes on this page.
Individual tutoring available most nights during school year. Days available during the summer. Saturday times for Irlen and Berard work.
No compensation for time missed-Group Sessions
All group classes are cancelled for this summer. Wish it could be different. Everyone take care, stay safe and enjoy your family. Try gardening. That was going to be a group class this year!
Individual tutoring sessions cost $12.50 for 30 min. $17.00 for 45 min. and $20.00 for hour sessions. All fees are due the first session of the month. If you miss a session and give timely notice, I will try to make up the time, but if you do not show or give notice, there will be no make up sessions or money refunded.
