I am a certified elementary teacher (K-6) moving to Chicago this summer. I have worked with children in the classroom for 6 years and am experienced in helping the most struggling readers reach their goals. I have worked with Everyday Math, enVision and Investigations math curricula and I am confident about my abilities to teach math concepts to elementary school students. I can also help with writing skills and grammar, phonics, science, social studies, organization and study skills.

I have also been studying French for over 10 years and have lived and worked in France through study abroad and The Experiment in International Living as a group guide. My bachelor's degree is in French and I spent a summer studying at the Middlebury French Language School in 2011.

This summer I will start my MA in Educational Technology through the University of Connecticut and plan to receive my degree in the summer of 2014.

I like to make learning engaging and to connect academic subjects while teaching. I am committed to helping students feel successful and confident in the fact that their hard work will help them reach their goals. I also like to have fun when I teach, and strive to bring my love of learning and reading to all the students I work with.

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)

I have a minor in Elementary Education, have taught for six years in Hartford and have my Provisional Educator Certificate in the state of CT.

Phonics

I have taught reading for 2nd - 4th graders for 6 years. I work with the most struggling readers and have moved my students an average of 1.5 years in a school year. I have been trained under the Haskins Literacy Initiative and have attended Fountas and Pinnell professional development as well. I also attended a week-long seminar at Teacher's College in New York City.

Reading

I'm trained in Guided Reading and Phonics instruction through the Haskins Literacy Initiative at Yale in Story Grammar, Syllable Types, and Written Response. I mainly work with struggling readers and push them to grade level using a variety of intervention strategies.
