I am very enthusiastic about teaching students from preschool through fifth grade. I have taught all these grades for a total of 26 years. During those years, I taught students who were remedial, regular education, and gifted in public schools and private tutoring. I am an accomplished educator who leverages strong interpersonal skills, flexibility, and teamwork to achieve educational objectives. I am proficient in all elementary subjects including Math.

I have been recognized for achievements in student motivation, differentiation, assessments, curriculum development, new teacher mentor, and students passing CRCT. I am known for implementing a shared vision which encourages productivity, creativity, results, and excellence. I do have a valid Georgia Educator's certificate at the Master's level.

I work with children at the point they are now and take them to their greatest potential. I try to instill a love of learning so the students will be life-long learners. I would be happy to communicate with a student's classroom teacher if parents so desired. I will drive about ten miles from my home. Most students come to my home to get tutoring.

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)

Elementary Math is what I teach best from K-5. From number sense, place value,addition, subtraction,multiplication, division, fractions, time, money, measurement, and problem solving to critical thinking, logic, and word problems I have taught it all and more in all elementary grades and with children from slow learners, average, to gifted. I enjoy Math teaching, because there are so many ways to get the concepts across from manipulatives, pictures, and many forms of paper and pencil work.

I have also taught most levels of science, social studies, spelling, and writing. I have taught science from seasons in Kindergarten to phases of matter in fifth grade. I have taught social studies from community helpers in Kindergarten to the Civil War in fifth grade.

Outstanding Tutor — Ms. Brenda is an outstanding tutor. My daughters tutoring lessons begin because she needed assists with the crct.
