Elementary (K-6th)

In May of 2008 I received my AA in Elementary Education from University of Phoenix. I continued with their program and in June of this year I received my BS in Elementary Education. In order to complete my Bachelor's degree, I was required to do 12 weeks of Student Teaching. During these 12 weeks, as well as all during my college studies, I had to create lesson plans, work with learning groups, plan tests, review local state, and national information - all pertaining to students in the classroom. This is why I believe I am qualified for this subject. Thank you.

Phonics

My student teaching (2/4/13 - 5/3/13) was done at Lee Elementary near Midway Airport in Chicago. Lee is 95% Hispanic and I student taught First Grade - ESL/ELL.

Because my educational focus has been on English & Literature, I focused a lot of my personal efforts in the class on this.

Each day in class we would have groups. My task was to sit with different groups of students every day and help them understand sounds, letters, and how these came together to form words. I used multiple tools off the internet as well as the Phonics worksheets that my cooperating teacher would give me.

Study Skills

I completed 12 weeks of student teaching from 2/4/2013 - 5/3/2013 to qualify for my BS in Elementary Education which I received in June 2013. For my student teaching I had to create a teacher portfolio. My portfolio detailed various study methods that I planned to use and did use with the students in my class. Now tutoring with WyzAnt, I continue to share study skills with my students.

Some of these examples include: grouping (taking a large subject and breaking it down into smaller groups or like sub-subjects to make it easier to study), mnemonics for remembering lists, game play/songs to recall a story or certain point, flash cards, and writing and re-writing.

Writing

I started working full-time professionally in 1989. Since then I have held only 3 jobs. In each of these jobs my primary focus has been customer service.

In each of these jobs, I have also had to do a great deal of writing. Business letters, promotions, requests, emails and so forth.

In addition to writing professionally, I also do so personally. I submitted a poem to Poetry.com that won a contest (the prize being an iPod Nano!).

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
