I love teaching and learning. I grew up in St. Petersburg and returned home after completing my masters in Education at the University of Florida. Recently, I have moved to Denver, where I will begin my doctoral work in education next summer. I also have my Bachelor's of Arts degree in American Studies, specializing in literature and history. I have taught school for the past 10 years. My range of experience includes tutoring in all subject areas for elementary students.

It is imperative to get to know a student's style of learning, study habits, strengths, and weaknesses in order to fully understand how to guide them in a specific subject. Keeping children engaged and interested, while maintaining patience and kindness, is a part of my teaching style.

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 a certified elementary education teacher grades K-6 by both the state of Florida and Colorado. I have been a school teacher in the public school system for 9 years. I hold a Masters in Elementary Education from the University of Florida.

Phonics

Beyond being a certified elementary education in two states, I have 9 years of work experience teaching children of all K-5 grades in mastering phonics. As a key principle of reading instruction, I daily designed lesson plans and managed students independently and in groups to master the stages of phonics development. My special training is in Words their Way and Making Sense of Phonics.

Social Studies

I am a certified elementary education teacher with an undergraduate degree in American History and I have taught social studies for all 9 of those years. I have utilized curriculum from multiple major publishing programs as well as an adapted version of Joy Hakim's History of US. Furthermore, I developed my own independent civics, geography, and history curriculums to match the state standards of Florida and Colorado.

Study Skills

I am a certified elementary education teacher who has taught students how to manage their learning tasks for 9 years. I have tutored over thirty students in coordinating their study schedule to master learning material. I have prepared students to college admittance and entrance exams, both of which require time management, memorization techniques, and course analysis.
