Experienced elementary school teacher in Chattanooga, TN seeking to tutor reading lessons

Methodology

My teaching approach is the phonics method along with sight words learning. The Phonics Method teaches children to pair sounds with letters and blend them together to master the skill of decoding. Some words in the English language cannot be sounded out. Sight word learning teaches children to read by sight and relies upon memorization via repeat exposure to the written form of a word paired with an image.

Background

I have 12 years of experience teaching in public and private schools. I have taught 1st to 3rd grade students and and have been a reading interventionist in a private school for 1st - 3rd grade. I have taught groups of 6 to 24 students. My students experience success by improved reading and comprehension and improved test scores.
