I look forward to sharing my experience and knowledge with you to help you reach your potential!

I am currently teaching middle school mathematics at Pyle MS in Bethesda, MD. In past years I have taught elementary subjects from 2nd through 5th grades in both public and private schools.

While I truly enjoy all subjects, my personal favorites are reading, writing, and math. I hope to be able to bring my love for school to your children and help them learn to love all subjects just as much as I do.

I believe that learning should be as fun and exciting as possible for children. I therefore spend the first ten minutes or so of the first lesson getting to know a student and telling him/her a little about myself. That way I know how to focus the rest of that lesson and future lessons to best help my students learn. This is especially helpful when tutoring students in reading, because the more interested a person is in the topic at hand, the more able (s)he is to focus and gain from a lesson.

Choose me as your child's tutor and I will be sure to do my best to help him/her reach his/her goals.

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 have a Master's degree in elementary education, and worked with another teacher in a 5th grade classroom for a year while earning this degree. While there, I planned and taught lessons in math, science, social studies, reading, writing, grammar, and spelling. I created tests and quizzes for students, as well as games and other learning activities.

I am certified to teach elementary school students in grades 1 - 6, as well as middle school students (grades 4 - 9) in math.

This past year, I taught 2nd grade in Montgomery County, and the prior year I taught 5th grade students.

I also tutored and taught after-school programs while in College. I worked with students in 2nd through 6th grade. We watched videos, read stories and articles, performed re-enactments and role-playing, did projects, and used worksheets to improve students' understandings of the subjects. Learning needed to be fun, especially at the end of a long school day, and so I tried my best to make it fun, but also educational for my students.

Elementary Math

I earned my master's degree in elementary education at the University of Maryland in 2010. I am certified to teach all elementary subjects and middle school mathematics in Maryland. I am currently in the process if earning certification for special education.

As an undergraduate student, I worked with America Counts tutoring student in Prince George's County after-school program twice a week. While studying as a graduate student, I also worked in a 5th grade classroom in Howard County as a student teacher. Since then, I have substitute taught for all elementary and middle school grades in Baltimore, Montgomery, and Howard Counties. This past year, I taught 2nd graders in Montgomery County, and 5th grade the year before that.

Praxis

I took the Praxis I series test in August of 2008 and passed with a 182 on the reading section, 184 on the writing section, and a 188 on the math section (all out of a possible 190). In April of 2009 I took the Praxis 2 Series test for elementary education content knowledge and passed with a 182 out of 200 for which I received a certificate of excellence. I also passed the elementary education content area exercises Praxis test in November of 2009.

I bought a Praxis study guide which I did not personally use much for my own studying, but which others may find useful. I still have it and would be happy to share it with others in need of Praxis help.

Special Needs

While earning my masters degree in elementary education I worked as a student-teach in a 5th grade classroom. My science and social studies class consisted of only below grade level students. The majority of the students were in this class due to poor comprehension and/or fluency. Many were also ADHD.

Although my homeroom class was heterogeneously grouped, a few of my social studies/science students were in this class as well. There was also a student with Aspergers. Working with her daily truly helped improve my understanding of how to work with special needs students.

Study Skills

As a classroom teacher and a substitute teacher part of my job is to help students learn to help themselves. In this way I have had lots of practice teaching study skills to children of all ages.

Near the end of the school year students always get so excited that sitting still in class becomes nearly impossible for them. One day last week I was so fed up with their inability to behave that I pointed out their poor behavior to them. I was surprised and impressed by one student's response. A boy who has struggled with staying focused and not schmoozing the entire school year said, "But... read more
