My comments on tutoring Writing: For our younger students who may have basic motor difficulties which impede handwriting, we use strategies such as Handwriting Without Tears and raised paper to support these students. For students with disabilities that may make legible handwriting difficult or impossible, we work with assistive technology to develop content writing skills. For more complex motor difficulties, we can help you determine if it may be necessary to refer to an occupational therapist. For younger students who can write legibly, we use our early literacy programs and methods like Shared Rime to help them learn to spell more accurately. We also help students to produce more content and write more fluently. We connect reading to writing by writing responses to texts we have read. We also begin to teach them important self-sufficiency skills with strategies like the Cover,Copy and Compare Method. As students master spelling are able to come up with things to write about, we begin to focus on organization of thoughts and producing higher-quality content. Here we often combine writing instruction with executive functioning interventions to help students with idea production, organization, and managing the steps and parts of longer projects like five paragraph essays and research papers. We also use similar executive functioning supports to assist students in analyzing the quality of their own writing. We also work to tie higher level writing and reading skills like reading a passage and effectively developing concise written main ideas and summaries. The comprehensive support provided by a Chicago Home Tutor will allow your student to develop important cognitive skills like organization, self-monitoring, and other executive function skills in addition to improved writing skills!

I have a strong background in reading, literature, and grammar, and feel confident in teaching these subjects. My degrees in Sociology and Counseling gave me extensive training in both topics, along with additional practice in essay writing, research, time management, study skills, and organization skills. My career as a Counselor enhances my communication and listening skills, and has given me the opportunity to work directly with children, adolescents, and adults who experience educational difficulties. I also gained teaching experience as a Certified Water Safety Instructor for 6 years during high school and college.

My teaching style depends upon the learning preferences of the student, as I know each student has their own way of learning. Moreover, I also provide additional supplemental information and practice problems. I believe in learning not only the concepts of a subject, but also their real world applications. Furthermore, I believe the most important part of tutoring is making learning fun and providing students with confidence in the subject being tutored. I have tutored students for 13 years in a variety of subjects for students in grades 1-12, as well as traditional and non-traditional Undergraduate and Graduate students. In addition to tutoring a variety of subjects, I also provide assistance with Master's theses and Ph.D. dissertations, specifically Statistical/Research Design Methodology and Statistical Analysis.
