Dear Parents,

Thank you for viewing my profile and considering me as a your child's tutor. I am a certified elementary school teacher with a Master's degree in Elementary Education. I taught all subject areas of 3rd grade for the last four years, and am now focused solely on private tutoring. I bring a wealth of ideas and resources from my years of teaching and working with students in small groups and one on one.

I have experience in all of the standard subject areas. I designed and delivered reading/writing genre studies aligned with the Comprehensive Literacy model. I utilized flexible grouping for effective, differentiated math instruction. I supported the development of new science and social studies units. I also presented socio-emotional learning curriculum to my students. I proactively implemented individualized academic and behavioral interventions.

I have also worked with students in a variety of other settings including tutoring, coaching, service projects, day camps and special events for children.

I love working with students and facilitating learning experiences for them. I am committed to helping learners move forward to reach their goals at their own pace. I will work with you to establish goals for your child's tutoring sessions. If you are looking for assistance with school projects and homework, the time can be spent focused on that. If you are looking for more general academic support in a particular subject, I can provide appropriate learning activities.

I would cherish the opportunity to learn and grow with your student.

Thank you for considering me.

Basketball

I was the Captain of my Varsity High School basketball team which included a trip to the Illinois Class A State Finals in 2000. I have experience coaching Elementary and Jr. High camps and High School Summer League.

Bible Studies

I have an integrative Bachelors degree in Psychology and Biblical Studies. I attended Christian schools from Kindergarten through college, all of which included Bible study as part of the core curriculum.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary school teacher. Most recently, I taught all subject areas of 3rd grade. I have a Masters Degree in elementary education. I also have previous experience as a private tutor.

Elementary Math

I am certified by the state of Illinois to teach Elementary Math. I also served on the Math Curriculum Committee at my school. We reviewed Common Core standards for elementary math and worked to integrate them in to our district's curriculum. We also selected new math materials and resources for the district. I am trained in Math in Focus, but also have experience with Everyday Math. More importantly, I have a strong foundation in teaching math concepts, so I am able to assist students with all programs. I am familiar with the Common Core standards, as well as the 8 Mathematical Practices.

Study Skills

My experience as a certified teacher has offered me many opportunities to work with students on study skills. I have created many different study tools and aides to help students succeed in the classroom. I have worked on study skills with the entire class, as well as one on one with specific student needs.

I am currently a private swim instructor at a local fitness club. I work with beginning students on the basics of swimming.
