I am a kindergarten teacher that diversifies learning styles to accommodate most learning styles. I have been tutoring private clients for two years in addition to teaching full time. I prefer to use hands on activities and activities where the child is actively engaged in the learning process. This type of teaching helps in the retention of information. Administering some baseline tests and working with data that you can bring from school we can help your child fill the learning gaps.

I am a mom with three nearly grown children with one child that struggled with homework. Homework was a nightly fight. I understand both sides of the equation as both a parent and an educator. I also have a current fingerprint clearance card.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught in the early childhood setting for over five years with the most recent as kindergarten teacher at Avalon Elementary School in the Excalibur School District. I am highly qualified in early childhood.

I utilize many teaching methods in order to engage the student. I meet the state required class percentage for students passing the dibbles test at the end of the year. This is accomplished through deep immersion in content matter.

Phonics

Spalding method is used as one method of teaching phonemic awareness in my kindergarten class. I also use the computer and online educational programming to provide students with deeper phonemic enrichment. I have been tutoring for over two years. I coordinate efforts with baseline data that parents have access from their child's teacher and we target specific areas as outlined by those tests.

I am currently a Kindergarten teacher at Avalon Elementary School in the Excalibur School District.
