Hi, My name is Erin and I currently reside in Chicago. I hold a master's degree in education and am certified in grades K-6 with the majority of my experience teaching in a public school in grades 3 and 4. I conducted before school math intervention and tutored reading after school privately. The last three years of my experience were in a co-teaching classroom with classified students with learning disabilities. I worked very closely with my special education co-teacher and support staff to conduct lessons for my class to cater to all of their learning needs. I am familiar with the challenges of working in a large classroom with many different learning styles. Let me help determine your child's full potential in a warm, nurturing, one on one learning environment in order to help them succeed in their school classroom.
My family moved here from New York several years ago for my husbands career and left my teaching job in a top Long Island school district. I have stayed home with my two children since and I have loved every minute of it! Now, I am eager and motivated to begin tutoring and to dive into my love of education once again. Teaching has been my passion from a young age. Patience, sensitivity, and awareness of my students needs are just some of the qualities that were highly regarded by the parents I worked with in years past. I commit to apply my energy, knowledge and education towards providing the best experience for your child so that they may succeed and become a more confident learner while making steady progress in school.
This past summer I took an intensive Wilson Reading Program training course as a pre-cursor to becoming Wilson Level 1 certified. I hold the Wilson materials and am capable of using the program for your child should they have these literacy needs.
I am a highly qualified teacher and tutor from Long Island NY, where I was teaching on the North Shore at a public elementary school for 8 years. Previous to that experience I taught in a pre-school setting for several years. I hold a master's degree in education and am certified in grades K-6 with the majority of my tenure in grades 3 and 4. I conducted before school math intervention and tutored reading after school privately. The last three years of my experience was in a co-teaching classroom working with classified students with learning disabilities. I worked very closely with my special education co-teacher and support staff to conduct lessons for my class to cater to all of my students learning needs.
While teaching at a public school in grades 3-4 I became a coordinator of a before school math program, providing intervention to those students whose test scores were below grade level in the grades of 3-5. These sessions included general math help among the group while providing specific instruction to smaller groups in the areas of deficit. Multiplication, division, fractions, geometry and reading of math word problems were just a few of the areas focused on. I find great joy working one to one with my students, helping them to have the "ah-ha" moments we so often have when doing math. I have learned from my own students that there are so many ways to approach learning elementary math, from singing the times tables in order to gain memorization skills to creating acronyms when teaching multi-step problems.
I have also worked extensively to prepare my students for state exams and grade level assessments. I can help your child to confront THE TEST and achieve success and grade level or above scores!
