Elementary (K-6th)

My 12 years working with k-6 students elementary and special education students, and of course my teaching certificate is what qualifies me to be a k-6th tutor. The following is a summary of what I do in my classroom:

- Establish multi-sensory, hands-on learning environments encouraging risk-taking, experimentation, and critical thinking where children are encouraged to be both independent and dependable
- Planning daily Reading Workshops incorporating read-alouds, guided reading, word study, and independent reading with individualized reading goals
- Facilitating Writing Workshops based on literature immersion, keeping a writer’s notebook and publishing cycles
- Utilizing a balanced approach to Mathematics allowing students to develop an understanding of mathematical concepts and skills using non-routine, real-world tasks which incorporate a variety of mathematical strands
- Planning integrated, experience-based social studies/ science curricula responsive to children’s developmental interests that emphasizes the interconnectedness of the human and natural world
- Collecting and analyzing data from a variety of student assessments to increase student achievement and enhance professional practice
- Building strong home-school relationships through clear and relevant homework assignments, weekly newsletters
- Effectively collaborating with colleagues and administration regarding teaching and learning

Phonics

My experience teaching phonics is to assess where the student is and begin by reinforcing what the student knows and encourage new learning.

In my classroom, I incorporate a 30-minute daily phonics lesson into language arts classroom instruction. I focus on carefully sequenced skills that include print knowledge, alphabet awareness, phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, decoding, vocabulary, fluency, and spelling. Critical thinking, speaking and listening skills are practiced during Storytime activities. Furthermore, my co-teacher and I target small group intervention for students in the lowest 30th percentile.

When I worked with older students (3-6 Gr),
based on the research on invented and developmental spelling, I use Words Their Way. This book provides a practical way for teachers to study words with students. The framework is keyed to the five stages of spelling or orthographic development so that it complements the use of any existing phonics, spelling, and vocabulary curricula. Often presented in a game-like format, these activities are actually mini-lessons that draw upon what students concurrently are learning in developmental reading and writing. the lessons in sequential order are: The Assessment of Orthographic Development; Word Study for Emergent Learners in the Preliterate Stage; Word Study for Beginners in the Letter Name Stage; Word Study for Transitional Learners in the Within Word Pattern Stage; and Word Study for Intermediate and Specialized Readers and Writers in the Syllable Juncture and Derivational Constancy Stages. I also provide parents with a list of literature for word study.

Reading

I can help with reading strategies, reading fluency, reading for meaning, critical thinking.

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.
