I am a graduate of the University of Colorado, and I completed my degree in Humanities and Elementary Education. I have spent 2 years in the Brighton, Boulder and Denver school districts completing my student teaching experience while maintaining a focus in reading, writing, literature, and social studies. I have experience tutoring at-risk students in the Boulder County area for intensive reading intervention for students between the 1st and 12th grades. I have brought several students up at least 2 grade levels in their performance in spelling and reading comprehension. I plan to teach 2nd or 3rd grade when I graduate, and will continue on to get my masters degree in reading specialization. In addition to English, I have a history focus within my humanities degree.

I have a very flexible schedule, but I am mainly available evenings and weekends. I am happy to work with any age student, as well as any ability level, including those with learning disabilities. Teaching is my passion, and I would love to help your child gain the confidence he or she needs to succeed in school and enjoy it at the same time!

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 am completing my degree at the University of Colorado at Boulder in Elementary Education. I have spent 2 semesters in the Brighton and Denver school districts completing my student teaching experience while maintaining a focus in reading, writing, literature, and social studies. I have experience tutoring at-risk students in the Boulder County area for intensive reading intervention for students between the 1st and 12th grades. I have brought several elementary level students up at least 2 grade levels in their performance in spelling and reading comprehension. I plan to teach 2nd or 3rd grade when I graduate, and will continue on to get my masters degree in reading specialization.

English

I have been an English buff since a young student, and I have always felt it is vital to become well versed in every aspect of English. From grammar to literature, I can ensure that your student will excel in any focus of English that needs extra help!

Phonics

I am in the School of Education at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and this semester I took all literature, phonics, reading and writing classes. I learned the foundations for phonetic instructions, and learned different stages of reading as well as specific instruction for targeting difficulties in phonemic awareness.

Public Speaking

I was on the speech and debate team in high school and went to nationals in the poetry event. In addition to poetry, I competed in public forum debate, Lincoln Douglas debate, oratory reading, humor, and drama. I was also in the advanced drama club in high school. With experience in both of these fields, I gained great self confidence for future academic presentations that have been required of me in college.

Special Needs

I am currently working at Ryan Elementary as a student teacher, and I work closely with a severely autistic student. In addition, I worked at the Dreamcatcher Organization, a non-profit group focused on aiding students with mild to severe learning disabilities who cannot afford academic support outside the classroom.

Hannah is: Reliable. Prepared. Patient. Excellent! — We have been using Hannah to tutor our nine-year-old son primarily for reading and writing since October. I am extremely happy with her instruction thus far. Our son was NOT excited about the prospect of having a "Tutor" but with-in the first five minutes of her arrival, he was all smiles and interest! While he is testing at the top of his grade level, we felt that due to the larger class size in ...
