I am a licensed 7-12 English teacher in Colorado and love what I do. I earned my B.A in English and Secondary Education at Colorado Christian University and also minored in Outdoor Leadership. Currently, I teach English at a high school in Littleton Public Schools.I have also tutored and/or taught for the past six years in Jefferson County and private schools. In the past couple years in the classroom, I have taught classes with ESL and Special Education middle school students to gifted high school students. In each classroom experience, I have enjoyed learning about my students as people and learners in order to tailor my lessons according to how that student learns and is motivated. What I love about tutoring is the chance to focus on a small number of students at a time and help them develop their skills. Not only do I teach secondary students, but I have worked as a Writing Lab tutor for Undergraduate and Graduate students for over three years.

With my experience, I specialize in helping students develop their reading, writing, and grammar skills. I have taught and will teach both children and adults. Regardless of what we are learning, I can diagnose reading, writing, and communicating issues through formal and informal assessments. Ultimately, I have enjoyed learning (especially Language Arts) and want others to as well. By creating lessons that are specific to your learning styles, target areas, and interests, I hope to make our tutoring sessions not only productive, but fun.

ACT English

I am a licensed English teacher

ACT Reading

I am a licensed English teacher. In my classes, I focus on reading strategies to help students as they approach reading new texts. They are introduced to various genres to help them become more dynamic in their reading skills. I also have taught sophomores and juniors and teach them ACT specific strategies.

Anatomy

I have tutored several high school students and helped them with their Anatomy and Physiology class.

Cooking

I have been an avid cook for many years. In addition to cooking at home, I have taken three culinary and baking arts classes. Though I do not have my teaching certification in culinary arts, I have stepped into the culinary class at the high school I often sub for and am their priority sub for those classes.

Elementary Math

I am a licensed teacher and have tutored elementary and basic math for six years.

English

I am a highly qualified and licensed English teacher. I have taught and tutored reading and writing for over six years to middle school to graduate students.

Grammar

I am a licensed English teacher and have tutored writing for undergraduate and graduate students for over three years.

Handwriting

In my teaching licensure classes, I learned how to teach both script and print. Handwriting is important because of its correlation to reading comprehension and acquisition. While teaching handwriting, it is important to focus on dimensions and formation of capital and lowercase letters.

Literature

I am a licensed English teacher and have specifically taught honors and regular literature. I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a literature focus.

Microsoft Excel

I have taught and tutored Microsoft Excel to graduate and undergraduate students that struggle with the program.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have taught and tutored Microsoft PowerPoint to graduate and undergraduate students that struggle with the program. I have years of experience working with the program.

Nutrition

I have spent much time developing my knowledge of nutrition and consider it important for people to know. I have learned about various types of fats, carbs, and sugars and their importance in a person's diet based on their level and type of personal exercise. I have also taught others how to monitor and adapt their diet and exercise and how their nutrition affects their life and lifestyle.

Philosophy

I have studied and tutored philosophy on the collegiate level.

Phonics

I studied the theory and practice of phonics in my teaching licensure program and in my English studies. These studies have included how to teach phonics to proficient and developing English learners. These studies have included relationships of sounds and graphemes, growth and use of the schwa, how to record words phonetically, etc.

I also did an independent study on Americans' perception of grapheme/ vowel phoneme relationships and how that affects spelling.

Proofreading

I am a licensed English teacher and have tutored writing for undergraduate and graduate students for over three years. As a writing tutor, I would edit students' work and teach them their own editing skills.

Reading

I am a licensed English teacher and specifically have taught honors literature classes.

SAT Reading

I am a licensed English teacher. In my classes, I focus on reading strategies to help students as they approach reading new texts. They are introduced to various genres to help them become more dynamic in their reading skills. I also have taught sophomores and juniors and taught them SAT specific strategies.

I am a licensed English teacher and have tutored writing for undergraduate and graduate students for over three years. In my classes, I focus on writing strategies to help students become dynamic writers. They interact with and replicate various writing genres. I also have taught sophomores and juniors and taught them SAT specific strategies.

Sewing

I am an avid sewer. I have taken several sewing classes and particularly enjoy quilting. I have taught my friends and family how to hem, tailor, sew, and quilt in my life.

Study Skills

I have developed many study skills in my life and hope to share this knowledge and experience with others. Not only have I learned these skills, but I worked for over three years as a college tutor. During this time, I not only taught students about the content but about note taking, time management, studying, and other related skills that led to their success not only in the subjects I taught, but in all of their academic life.

TOEFL

I am a licensed English teacher and have tutored writing for undergraduate and graduate students for over three years. Especially during my tutoring years, I have helped many students develop their English as a second language. This has helped them prepare for writing, reading, and communicating while in college and for the workplace.

Vocabulary

I am a licensed English teacher and focus on vocabulary in all of my classes. In my classes, we learn context-based and root-based vocabulary to help students not only memorize vocabulary, but learn how to approach new vocab they encounter.
