My Name is Erica P. and I am currently an 8th grade Language Arts Teacher in Onslow County. I have experience teaching all grade levels and am certified in both elementary and middle grades education. I began my teaching career as a special education collaborator, then worked as a tutor and as assistant director of education at a Sylvan Learning Center in Anchorage, Alaska. Once I relocated back to the east coast, I worked at a private school teaching science and reading to 5th-8th graders. I finished my master's degree during this time and took a job teaching and counseling at a clinical day program and residential treatment facility. Once the county cut finding for our program, I took a job in Charlotte and worked for 3 years in CMS, 1 year in Union County and recently moved to Onslow County to be near family.

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

Besides having my bachelor's degree in Elementary and Middle School education, I also have my Master's degree in Counseling. In my years as both a teacher and a counselor I have worked with many ADD/ADHD students. When I worked at a clinical day program, we specialized in ADD/ADHD students and helping them mainstream into public school.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified to teach K-8 grades. I am proficient in all subject areas through 6th grade. Math is the only area that I do not feel comfortable teaching past 6th grade.

Study Skills

My very first year teaching I was a special education co-teacher. One of the classes I taught independent of the regular schedule was a study skills class. We learned to organize and maintain binders for all subjects, we practiced using agendas to keep track of tests and due dates, and we used Cornell style notes. I have also helped students to empty out and organize their bookbags.
