Elementary (K-6th)

I have recently worked with many students at the elementary level in the subjects of math, science, and English. I currently hold a B.A. in English. I am knowledgeable about what students at that grade level need in order to progress to the middle school grades. Thank you for you consideration and I hope to meet you soon.

English

In Standards for the English Language Arts, the National Council of Teachers of English and the College Readiness Standards, students should be “knowledgeable and proficient users of language so that they may succeed in school, participate in our democracy as informed citizens, find challenging and rewarding work, appreciate and contribute to our culture, and pursue their own goals and interests as independent learners throughout their lives.”

As a teacher, I have developed aspirations as to what a quality teacher has to be. This includes: inspire and encouraging students, promoting continuing education, influencing creativity in students, promote critical thinking, and most of all treating my students as individuals and getting to know them as such. A teacher’s job is to illuminate and inspire a student into thinking and knowing that they can be anything and everything that they want to be, no matter who they are and where they might come from.

Along with the responsibility of the teacher, comes the initiative of the student. Competency in subject area, cooperative and active learning, exploration, and self-expression leads to a student that is willing to learn and ready to face challenges in the classroom. I will assess student understanding by the use of projects, oral exams, research papers, tests, presentations, speeches, and group/individual assessments. A teacher is the one who educates and inspires her students to educate themselves, to build themselves up and to open their minds to a world of possibility.

Sign Language

I have taken two classes in Sign Language at the college level, receiving A's in both. I kept all of my information that I gathered from the classes, including lessons, textbooks, and worksheets, and I can convey the basics of Sign Language accurately.

Study Skills

In the past, I have tutored students on the value of studying and how to do it. I know how to take notes and how to get you to understand what information is important or not. I can provide different methods and tricks for making memorization easier.

Tennis

I have played tennis for all four years of high school and I played two years at Joliet Junior College. My positions at both in high school and college were Number 1 doubles and Number 2 singles. Varsity level all four years in High School and first two years of college.

Track & Field

I did track all four years of high school and participated in a community track team. I only participated in the field events, especially discus and shot put. I have been to state competitions two times, and to the Junior Olympics in Florida, placing 5 in the national rankings. I love throwing the discus and the shot put. I also help out this Spring at a local high school with their girl's track team, in the throwing events

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 certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
