Looking for a caring, responsible tutor with a degree in education for your young child? Does your child need a boost in their motivation to learn (especially during the summer months)? I am a fun, recently-certified, and very motivated teacher whose main goal is to help students succeed while they enjoy learning. Your student will look forward to each tutoring session with me because I truly make learning fun. Each session will be carefully planned out by me in advance to ensure that your child is learning to their highest potential, all the while having a good time and staying motivated.

I am a recent graduate from Northeastern Illinois University's College of Education, and have a degree in Elementary Education, with endorsements in Middle School Language Arts and Social Sciences. I look forward to working with you!

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 graduated in May 2012 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education from Northeastern Illinois University. I am certified with an Illinois Type 03 teaching certificate, and am also endorsed in Middle School Language Arts, as well as Middle School Social Sciences.

Elementary Math

I have a lot of experience with elementary math. I am a certified elementary school teacher and have had experience teaching math in most elementary grades. I have clinical experience, as well as student teaching experience. Specifically, I student taught in 2nd grade. However, my clinical experiences were in 1st, 4th and 5th grades, and I taught math in each of those grade levels. Additionally, my college courses at Northeastern Illinois University have prepared me to teach all elementary math at all elementary grade levels. I passed my math methods course with an A.
