In First Grade I came home and told my mom that I wanted to be a teacher. That has never changed and I now have been teaching for 11 years. I earned my degree at Eastern Michigan University where I majored in Special Education Elementary and minored in Music Education. I also received my Master's Degree from EMU in Learning Disabilities. I have since then earned a minor in English Language Arts and Math K-8 which makes me highly qualified in those subjects.

I have tutored a range of students from 2nd grade up to Seniors in high school. I believe that students who are struggling in a subject really know more then they think but start to lack the confidence. I also believe that students are not sure how to study and when they do not do well on a test but spent four hours studying they do not get the connection that how they studied may not have been the best.

My approach to tutoring is to have students bring their homework or classwork and by focusing on what is going on in the classroom we can build the study skills and confidence needed to help the student succeed. I have also tutored in the summer where I brought lessons to help the student focus on their weaknesses.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have taught for 11 years and each year had students with ADD/ADHD. I believe that students with ADD/ADHD just need to find what works for them and I will keep looking until they find what works! I have many different ideas that I have watched work. From closing out distractions to using a stress ball to help stay focused.

Aspergers

In my 11 years of teaching I have spent 4 of those years working with students who had Aspergers. They have taught me so much over the years and it has helped in my teaching of other students. I believe that we need to listen to each of our students and find what works best for them. I am committed to finding what works best for each student I work with and making sure they are reaching their best potential.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am Highly Qualified in the State of Michigan to teach K-6th grade. I believe that elementary school is very important because students need to have the basic building blocks in order to excel as they go on to middle and high school. I have passed the Michigan Certification test for Elementary and I have passed WyzAnt Elementary Math and Science test. Over the past 12 years I have tutored many K-6th grade students.

Special Needs

I have spent the past 11 years teaching Special Education. I have worked in many different classrooms and with many students who had different disabilities. I believe that everyone has strengths and weaknesses and we need to pull the strengths out so that they can excel. I have worked with students with physical impairments, ADD/ADHD, Aspergers, Autistic, hearing impairments, visual impairments, sensory issues, cognitive impairments, ODD, and Learning Disabilities. I have provided basic speech, O.T., P.T. and nursing services to students.

Study Skills

I have been teaching study skills classes for 4 years and have been integrating study skills into classes for 11 years. I believe that when a student understands how to study and what works for them they can use their time wisely. I believe that study skills include test taking tips, vocabulary tips, critical thinking skills, and problem solving. While using the work provided by the school we can learn these different skills to help us advance our learning.

Violin

I have played the viola for 23 years. I have had 4 years experience teaching violin and viola. I have an instrumental music minor in education from Eastern Michigan University. I played for 3 years with the EMU orchestra.

Excellent Tutor! — Tracy has been an excellent resource for my child relative to improving study skills. Tracy stepped in and immediately identified problem areas and made thoughtful recommendations. She is patient and encouraging, and finds ways to get my child engaged in actual learning, not just getting homework done. As she continues to work with my child she has recommended additional strategies. I highly re ...
