Tutor Personal Information

Name: Mrs Lynda M.
Gender: Female   Age: 31-40
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I taught in the public school for 9 years and have been tutoring privately (one-on-one) for 4 years. I have developed an approach to reading instruction/ remediation that is fun and systematic and yields improvement in reading scores after just a few lessons. Many students I have tutored have improved 1-2 grade levels in reading after just a few short months. I am trained in the Barton Reading and Spelling System and have found it to be very effective for dyslexic students and students with CAPD/APD and other learning disorders.

A fun structured learning environment with lots of prizes and rewards help children achieve positive results in their reading, fluency and comprehension.

Although my speciality is in reading I also tutor other elementary subjects such as Language Arts, Math, Spelling, Writing, Science and Social Studies.

Awards The biggest reward for any teacher is to not only see improvement in a student's grades but also improved confidence levels. Most students I tutor not only see improvement in their grades but their self confidence goes up significantly as well. Teachers and parents also notice the confidence boost after just a few lessons.
