About the lesson

I am a certified teacher in the State of Oklahoma. I am presently tutoring students in grades 1-3 so that they can become more proficient in reading skills. Usually, I start a lesson with a carefully selected story to read. Then hone in on specific areas that need attention. I use a combination of worksheets, games on computer, games that require moving around, and where possible, books of specific interest to the child. Lesson segments are 10-15 minutes in length, for up to an hour total. I believe in phonics as an essential tool for figuring out new words, as well as using context where appropriate.

I also am certified to teach English as a Second Language. In this case, I start with where the student is at conversationally, and transition to reading. Much of this instruction is vocabulary building, pronunciation modeling and practice, and in the case of advanced students, English Language sentence structure.
