About Tori

I am an elementary teacher, and I love teaching! I have previously taught 5th grade for three years. I have also worked with 2nd grade and with preschoolers. I recently decided to leave my 5th grade teaching job upon getting married and moving to the same area as my husband.

I believe that tutoring can make all the difference! Tutoring allows the tutor to meet the students where they are. So often students are placed into education models that might not work for them. In a tutoring session it is all about the one specific student. Therefore, the student can learn how they learn best!

I love being creative in tutoring. I enjoy incorporating online activities, as well as creative hands-on activities. I make it a priority to communicate with all parties involved and to have tangible ways of demonstrating the success of the students.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 am qualified to tutor in Elementary (K-6th) subjects due to my bachelor's degree in elementary education and my Pennsylvania teaching certificate. I have also taught 5th grade for 3 years and have experience tutoring in the elementary levels.

Elementary Science

I taught 5th grade Science for 3 years in the public school setting in Central Pennsylvania. My teaching style involved many hands-on activities that allowed the students to explore science concepts, which resulted in interested, involved, and excited students!

Phonics

I graduated from Messiah College with a degree in Elementary Education. During my time there I took several courses in phonics. In addition, I taught 3 years in the public school system, where spelling and phonics was a part of the curriculum.

Praxis

I completed the Praxis tests necessary for elementary teaching certification. Although I do not have the specific score that I received on the Praxis, I did pass the first time and I did have high scores in all of the content areas. I have previously taught 5th grade for three years. I have also worked with 2nd grade and with preschoolers.

Study Skills

I am qualified to tutor in this area because I have helped countless students refine their study skills. I have encountered these students throughout my 3 years of teaching 5th grade and during my time as a one-on-one tutor.
