I am a certified reading specialist K-12, a former public and private school teacher, and currently a private tutor. I can provide 1:1 online academic support for elementary students in the areas of reading comprehension, writing, spelling, grammar, vocabulary, and executive functioning skills (organization, following directions, and study skills). Am skilled in assessing learning problems and finding creative ways of helping students overcome them (including learning disabilities and dyslexia). My approach involves motivating students based on their interests. For middle and high school students, I teach students comprehension and study skills (e. g., questioning, skimming, outlining, taking notes, technical vocabulary) that makes it easier for them to understand content area material in English, social studies/history, and science classes. I also work with them on assignments, and provide tips on how to study for tests. I do not provide tutoring in math.

I have two daughters, 11 & 9 yo, both working with Bob. My older daughter started with Bob 15 months ago, and younger about eight months ago. They are very different personalities & writing/reading levels. Bob is carefully planning work for the girls & we talked over the phone about the girls' interests & both of our expectations. Bob's strengths are listening to our girls patiently & catching their minds to guide them to write in a fun atmosphere. When my older daughter started working with Bob, she was already strong with reading & moderate level of writing, however, we wanted Bob to work on technical parts of writing to include research, composing, and editing. She has now progressed from a letter to a TV personality to research projects, to discussing classic literature pieces. Our younger one, didn't like writing & was weak at reading. Now her reading skill has accelerated to now being on the 3rd Harry Potter book & enjoys writing when she writes about topics she enjoys everyday.
