I have been a successful private tutor since 2008.

I have a teaching degree from Alvernia University and I specialized in Elementary and Special Education. Since I graduated, I have worked with several middle school, high school and college students to sharpen their math skills.

I believe in meeting students needs by working at their level. Sometimes this means finding alternate ways to explain a subject, but if a student can understand the topic in the end, the extra work is worth it!

I am willing to tutor Reading and Writing at all levels, from child to adult.
In math, I will tutor basic elementary math, pre-algebra, algebra and geometry.

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 degree in Elementary Education which included 14 weeks of student teaching at the elementary level. My experience also includes several years of field work as it pertained to completing my degree. I am also experienced in differentiating instruction to meet the various needs of students at this level.

Praxis

Upon successful completion of my own PRAXIS exam, I began facilitating study groups to assist others in taking the exam. I use Kaplan materials to train students, as well as online materials. I obtained my teaching degree from Alvernia University, and scored well on both the PRAXIS I & II exams. Personally, I have a very strong reading and writing background, which is an advantage in tutoring for these types of exams.
