Do you tutor spelling?
Yes. I give the child an informal spelling inventory from Donald Bear’s Words Their Way: Word Study for Phonics, Vocabulary, and Spelling Instruction to determine the stage of spelling development and then I design a program of word games and activities to help your child learn the spelling patterns that they need to know.
Do you teach writing workshops?
Absolutely. I love to share my passion for writing with students. I can teach workshops on a variety of writing topics — poetry, book reviews, non-fiction writing, persuasive writing, and fiction writing — just to name few! We look for mentor texts to use and I encourage students to find their writing voice. Students practice the writing process from getting ideas to writing a first draft, editing and completing a final draft.
