I am currently a Preschool teacher, but have taught First and Second Grades as well. I attended Illinois State University, and have tutored students from Kindergarten through Third Grade in Reading, Language Arts and Math. I enjoy working with Early Childhood students and helping them learn the basic skills they need to build a strong foundation for success in school.

I would love the chance to help your child attain the skills they need in a way they can understand. I use different methods depending on your child's interests and how they learn that makes learning fun.

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 taught Preschool (3-5 year-olds) for 8 years, First Grade for 2 years, and Second Grade for 3 years. I am very knowledgeable in Early Childhood/Primary aged curriculum, skills and needs. I provide a variety of activities for my students and differentiate according to students' needs.

Phonics

I teach phonics in a fun way that my students can actively participate in every day. I enjoy developing games and activities around the phonics skills to make it exciting. Starting with assessing the students' knowledge of the alphabet and letter sounds and moving onto blending letters and, finally, words. I have used a variety of phonics support materials including Modern Curriculum Press, Scott Foresman Reading Street and Heggerty Phonics.
