Common Core Standards require younger students to learn more at a quicker pace than they ever have before. With the increased rigor and higher level thinking skills, early childhood programs will become more rigid. Prekindergarten will be more important and skills students used to learn in second grade will need to be taught in Kindergarten. As parents, we want to do everything we can to see our children succeed in elementary school and beyond. I teach fifth grade reading and math and I have done extensive research on Common Core Standards for elementary school. I know what is expected and what students need to know and how to best help students meet these standards. It does not have to be drill, drill, drill. There are so many strategies out there, using quality children's literature, to meet each standard that can be fun and educational at the same time. I teach reading/language arts using the whole language approach. The important thing for parents of elementary students to know is that whole language reading instruction focuses on helping children to “make meaning” of what they read and to express meaning in what they write. Writing is a huge part of Common Core Standards. I feel that math concepts are best taught using manipulatives and real-world application. I also have experience teaching social studies and science and love teaching these subjects as well. If you feel that your child could use extra one-on-one instruction, let's get started!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
