I am currently a graduate student at the University of Maryland. Before entering graduate school, I spent two years teaching 1st grade at a successful Connecticut charter school, and I am certified in elementary general education. I believe that learning, particularly for elementary students, should be exciting and fun, so I am committed to bringing enthusiasm and creativity to my approach as a tutor. I am able to collect and use student data to diagnose misunderstandings and develop targeted learning plans in order to help students improve and reach their individual learning goals.
I have expertise in teaching/tutoring all elementary subjects, with an emphasis on reading and math. I also have experience working with students with special needs, including ADD/ADHD, autism, and emotional disorders. All of my students in 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 finished the year at or above grade level in reading and math.
I graduated from Kenyon College with high honors in psychology and a double-major in classics. I have tutored college-level psychology and have experience with successful SAT, Praxis, and GRE test preparation. I am also well-acquainted with the material for AP English, Biology, and U.S. History courses.
