KarenI have been playing and studying music since I was five years old. You could say that music is in my bones. I have written numerous four-part arrangments that are still played in many church bands. I have also helped my family produce an album. I participate in the music department of two churches near me. I can help students of all levels, from beginner to intermediate. I enjoy country western, southern gospel, and Christian hymns. I would love to help in numerous subjects including the Wilson Readin System, music, and piano. When I have spare time, I enjoy bead stringing and studying history. I am excited to help other people reach their goals.

ChristineI take great pleasure in helping readers become successful. I have been a public school reading teacher for more than fifteen years. For the last six years, I have specialized in multi-sensory learning methods for special education and dyslexic students. I am certified in the Wilson Reading System, and I am trained in Orton-Gillingham techniques. I have a bachelor's degree in elementary with a minor in English. I first get to know my students and where they are in regards to the material. Once I know where they stand, I can create custom lesson plans to help them. In my spare time, I like traveling, gardening, camping, kayaking, and reading.

ChloeI firmly believe that we learn throughout our entire lives. Learning happens in all walks of our lives, through triumph, struggles, and experiences. I haven't always been ambitious and goal-oriented. I attended five elementary schools, two middle, and three high schools before I realized that I needed to get serious about my education. As a teacher and tutor, my goal to help my students understand the depth and importance behind what they are learning. I can tutor in numerous subject areas including the Wilson Reading System, literature, essay editing, and writing. In my spare time, I like anything related to dogs, playing tennis, writing, and drawing. I am excited to get to know you.
