I have worked with elementary students for four years while in school. I have worked in several preschools and have tutored kindergarten and 1st grade for a year. I am volunteering now with two reading programs for kids. One dealing exclusively with tutoring 1st, 2nd, and 3rd grade in reading. I work hard to allow students to find their passion in their education with patience, creativity, and fun. I look forward to working with you and your child.

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 a minor in Elementary Education. I have worked in preschools for 7 years. I have tutored dual kindergarten and first grade students in America Reads. I also volunteer with Everyone A Reader and Words Alive.

Handwriting

I have worked in preschools and kindergarten classrooms for the last seven years. I have worked extensively with handwriting skills with young children. I like to use the tracing method, but find sensory tools to also be a huge help with some children.

Needlework

I have been crocheting for the last 12 years. I would say I am between an intermediate and master level. I am able to make my own basic designs, read patterns, and execute the product. I have my own small business selling an array of different accessories and have successfully tutored people to learn the basic beginning steps of crochet.

Reading

I have worked for America Reads for a year. This allowed me to work with students on a one-on-one base to allow them to find their passions for reading and to gain confidence in their abilities.
