Thank you for considering me to be your tutor!
My name is Ally and I am a 23 year old graduate of Shorter University in 2012. I majored in Middle Grades Education with concentrations in Mathematics and Language Arts. I am Georgia certified to teach 4th-8th grade in those two subjects. I am currently a 5th Grade teacher in Gwinnett County.
I am a positive, energetic, engaging, and encouraging teacher. I always want my students to enjoy learning and use their gifts to learn. I will use varied types of methods and teaching styles to allow students to learn in the best environment possible. I expect the best from my students, academically and behaviorally. I believe a teacher's job is not only to teach information, but guide students to be the best they can be.
I have a passion for children and view teaching as a gift to be able to invest in the next generation. I have wanted to be a teacher since I was a child and I am beyond excited to actually be fulfilling what I know I was created to do.
After my graduation from college in 2012, I left for the World Race. The World Race is an 11 month mission trip to 11 different countries. I have been radically transformed by the love of Christ and I have spent this time to serve and share the Gospel around the world. During this journey, I have been blessed to use my passion for teaching in countless ways. I have home-schooled students, taught English classes, led children's games and activities, and preached sermons. This journey has confirmed that teaching is a gift the Lord has given me, as well as grown me with priceless experiences. This journey has given me the opportunity to interact with people of all walks of life, cultures, and languages. I have also grown in flexibility in any situation that comes my way.
