My name is Teri G. and I am a former classroom teacher. I began my teaching career in the Georgia Pre-K program and then taught kindergarten through 2nd grade at Sanders Elementary, in Cobb County. I also have tutored the past three years from grades pre-k-5th. I loved being in the classroom, but tutoring gives me the opportunity to get to know my students and focus on certain academic areas. I have been blessed with tremendous amounts of patience and a true enjoyment of working with children. I believe my teaching strengths are patience, persistence, kindness, and 20+ years of effective and innovative lessons. I am an excellent reading teacher. Currently I am only available on Saturdays for elementary tutoring and from 8:00am until 1:00pm Monday through Friday for 3 year olds and 4 year olds.

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.

Autism

One year in 2nd grade I received a new student who was autistic. I spent a lot of time with his mother who helped me learn the best ways to work with him. I learned hands on for 3 months until the county I worked in provided an aide, and the last I heard he has successfully completed 8th grade. I have the patience and desire to work with special needs students, and have been successful with them in a classroom setting. Being in a tutoring setting would allow for much greater learning to occur.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught K-2nd grade for 9 years at Sanders Elementary School in Austell, Georgia. I have also tutored students in 1st through 5th grade the past two years. I have a valid K-8 teaching license from the State of Georgia.

Phonics

Throughout my years of Pre-K through 2nd grade I have taught extensive phonics. I have used all of the required texts and workbooks required by Cobb County. Two examples of these are Sitton Spelling and Words Their Way. One way I have taught phonics is by relating to letters to a certain picture, or pictures, and then using that connection in songs and small group lessons. I have used Dr. Jean's phonic songs in school and tutoring and also phonics tunes from "kids videos" on the internet.

Study Skills

I have been a certified teacher in Georgia for the past 20 years. I have 6 years of teaching pre-k for the Georgia Pre-k Program, Bright From the Start as well as 10 years of teaching grades K-2nd in a Cobb County school. I have tutored privately for 2 years and have now reached my 20+ hours with WyzAnt. Every year I have taught and with all my tutoring lessons, I have been teaching helpful and useful study skills.
