I would love to help you out! I am a stay at home mom with one daughter. Before she came along I was a special education teacher at the elementary level. I worked at Center Elementary here in Kansas City. Teaching reading was my favorite thing to do! I taught 1 year at the Middle School level and 2 years at the Elementary level. I plan on going back to teaching elementary school when my children are in school themselves. Where do you live? What times are you needing? I am still figuring out how much I will charge; I have been thinking of doing tutoring for quite awhile now.

I admire your wanting to help your daughter. You are her mom and have to decide what is best for her...but, I will give you my opinion. I think you would be wasting money by paying a tudor. Read to her a lot! Work on letter recognition and get some "sight word" books. Most kids do not start reading until they are in first grade. Just work with her a lot. Make it a fun time such as a field trip to a local shopping center to find all the words that start with "__ Letter" then stop at the book store to find a book with that letter in the title. Do not feel pressured to make her the smartest kid in her age bracket...she will learn at her own time! You sound like a great mom who is willing to do anything for her daughter.....but, if I were you I would save that money for other things. Good luck. C.
