Literacy tutoring with an expert teacher gives your child more than reading practice. Successful tutors also incorporate modeling and coaching into their lessons to help students master reading comprehension, interpret meaning, and develop vocabulary. Students benefit directly from one-on-one attention with a certified teacher, improving literacy skills quickly and gaining confidence that often translates to more success in the classroom.
Strong reading, writing, and English Language Arts skills are foundational for critical and creative thinking. Without robust interpretive or analytical skills, students struggle to communicate important ideas, which can hamper future success in and out of the classroom. Our tutors are local, certified teachers with a depth of experience in learning styles and methods. They know your child’s curriculum – and how to design engaging lessons that help your child develop their unique voice.
“This is my 7th year in public education. I taught HS Science for 4 years in Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools. I enjoy everything about teaching, but most of all – I enjoy building strong relationships with students, seeing the proverbial “light bulb” come on when a student learns something new, and seeing the incredible impact that education can make in a child’s life. There are thousands of careers out there, I get to spend every day around thousands of teenagers with bright dreams and futures. I can’t imagine doing anything else.”
“I am in my 31st year as an educator. I have a Master’s Degree in Literacy Education and was awarded the Milken Educator Award in 2004 for the State of Maine (mff.org). My experience includes teaching grades 1-6 and a reading course at the Graduate Level. Literacy is my passion.”
“I have had the pleasure of teaching high school English for eight years. After earning my Master’s degree, I began my teaching career at a suburban school teaching senior English. After a couple of years, I moved to teaching junior English and ACT prep, and three years ago I was given the opportunity to teach AP Literature and Composition. Although teaching is my second career, it is truly my passion.”
“I am originally from a small town called Kingstree, South Carolina. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology and a Master’s Degree in Education. I am currently on my 4th year of teaching. I am certified to teach all science courses. Primarily I teach Earth and Environmental Science, but I also teach Physical Science, and Biology during our credit recovery program at school.”
