Hello and welcome! Thank you for visiting my page. My name is Danielle. I received my B.A. in Elementary Education
in 2009. I have a state of Illinois teaching license with endorsements in language
arts and social studies
. A majority of my undergraduate experience was working with children in grades K-5.
I have a strong knowledge base in all subject areas especially those for elementary education students. I am well versed in other areas such as RtI, and PBIS. Also, I am extremely knowledgeable on administering (Progress Monitoring systems, AIMsWeb, benchmark assessments, 3-minute Reading
Assessments, DRA assessments, Running Records, Assessment for Phonemic Awareness, Phonics
Mastery Survey, BRI Word Lists and Passages, DIBELS, etc).
Furthermore, I have tutored many students in the past who were struggling readers. I administered assessments to help show growth with struggling students. I have also created and taught lessons with hands-on opportunities to enhance learning. In addition, lessons where focused on mastering specific skills (story mapping, predicting, inferring, decoding, context clues, etc)
I love working with children and see them succeed inside and outside of the classroom. I hope to lead them on a road to excellence in the classroom. I love to learn and discover new things about myself and students; I think that teaching is an excellent way to do both.
I am open to tutoring students on an individual basis or in a small group. I am also open for negotiations for hourly rate. The details for a group rate would have to discussed on an individual basis and then be approved by the company. I am a flexible person and through great communication everything can be worked out to benefit kids.
