I have been a teacher for 6 years. I have taught 4th grade, 5th grade for 3 years and 2nd grade for 2 years. Two of the years that I taught 5th grade were in Monument Valley down on the Navajo Reservation. I had many 5th grade students reading at a 2nd and 3rd grade level and by the end of 5th grade I was able to get them to a 5th grade reading level. I use a program that is mostly used for spelling, but I have found that it correlates with reading and writing as well.
I also love teaching math! It is my favorite topic and I have a lot of ideas and games that make math so fun that most of the time my students don't even feel like they are studying. They feel like they are playing! I also have my math endorsement.
Last summer I tutored a current 5th boy in spelling. He started at a 1st grade spelling level and is now at a 4th grade spelling level. That was with 3 sessions a week. He made tremendous growth! I have also tutored 2 6th graders in math and they both were able to get better grades.
I charge $35 an hr.
