I am a certified elementary teacher with four years of experience as an elementary school teacher (3 years of middle school Language Arts and Reading and one year of all subjects) as well as seven years as a substitute teacher, one year as a reading tutor for small groups, and one year of individual tutoring in all elementary subjects. Each of these experiences has given me insights, strategies, and exposure to a wide variety of curricula and approaches.
I have also had the pleasure of helping adult students prepare for the GED and College Placement tests.
I completed my post-graduate teacher's certification program at Northeastern Illinois University with a 4.0 average. I graduated college summa cum laude (3.8 out of 4.0) and was one of the few students inducted into my college's honor society. I also have a master's degree which I completed cum laude.
My greatest joy is when my students grasp a concept and start making connections and growing as learners. Different learners learn differently so I tailor my tutoring to their learning styles, strengths, and challenges. I make learning fun for my students, injecting humor, focusing on their interests, and helping them experience the joy of success!
As a mother of two sons, who are now in college, I bring a nurturing approach to my tutoring of younger students and practical life experience to my tutoring of older students.
As a student, I struggled with math until I learned how to teach it. There are many ways to solve a math problem and I really enjoy finding strategies that work best for my students.
I have a Master of Divinity degree from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School as well as 30 hours of Bible and Theology in my undergraduate degree from Nyack College.
I am a certified elementary education teacher with the state of Illinois and have 4 years experience teaching elementary school.
I am a certified Elementary teacher who has been trained in methods of teaching Math, and I also have experience teaching math as a classroom teacher and as a substitute teacher.
I have worked for several years as a teacher and as a tutor in Reading, Phonics, Writing and Grammar. I am a certified teacher with an endorsement in Language Arts. I taught both middle school and early elementary students and have tutored all ages in writing and grammar.
I am a certified teacher for grades K-9 and have several years experience teaching Middle School students. I have been trained in teaching methods, have experience with a wide variety of curricula and multiple ways to solve math problems. I find that much of the GED test is a matter of thinking logically and with common sense. As someone who went back to school after 20 years, I understand the struggles that adult students encounter.
Language Arts, including Grammar and Writing, is my specialty. I was well trained in grammar as a student myself and excel in assisting my students in improving their own grammar. I have often assisted others by editing their writing for grammar and usage and helping them to write on a more scholarly level.
I taught Reading and Language Arts to middle school students for 3 years, then spent a year as a reading tutor for Kindergarten through 6th graders. I have an additional year of experience as a classroom teacher.
I am a certified teacher for grades K-9 and have several years experience teaching spelling and phonics, including word study. As a classroom teacher I expanded my students' vocabularies, teaching them how to determine a word's meaning from its prefix, root word and suffix.
