As a dedicated educator, I am committed to helping children by providing a warm, caring and respectful learning environment for them. I have provided elementary enrichment activities and homework help, as a Knox County tutor, independent tutor and preschool and elementary teacher. I will meet your child's individual learning needs by assessing their basic grade level skills and creating engaging, multi-sensory, age appropriate tutorial lessons. Additionally, I home schooled my children through middle school and have a working knowledge of lifelong learning skills/building blocks that aid a student in achieving future academic success. Finally, I will regularly communicate progress to parents through transcripts of tutoring session objectives met and areas needing improvement.

I am a TN certified teacher, Elementary K-6, with an M.Ed. from the University of Maryland and a B.S. in Elementary Education from Bucknell University. I have worked with gifted, special-needs and at-risk students in various settings including volunteer positions with KIDS HOPE, and as a leader of a Home Educators group, Sunday School teacher and teacher of a kindergarten church choir. I look forward to helping your student reach his/her potential.

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 this area as I am certified in Tennessee as an Elementary teacher. I also earned a M.Ed. from the University of Maryland. Finally, I have tutored and taught Reading and Math to at-risk, and gifted students in various settings.

Elementary Math

I am a certified K-6 Elementary Teacher with a Master's in Education. I have taught Math in a Kindergarten setting, as a Knox County and private tutor and to my own home schooled children. Using a variety of hands-on materials and practice problems, I assist children by building strong Math foundation skills.

ESL/ESOL

My approach to teaching English as a second language could be characterized as Direct-method. Utilizing this method I would stress vocabulary acquisition, listening and reading while giving the student immediate feedback on completion of these tasks. As an elementary reading/writing teacher I believe I have the skills necessary to encourage an ESL student as learning a second language parallels first language development.

Reading

I am a certified K-6 Elementary Teacher with a Master's in Education. I have taught reading in Kindergarten, as a Knox County and private tutor and to my home schooled children. My approach tends to be classical in the sense that I focus on phonics and introducing short vowel sounds so that children are able to put together short words very quickly. As children progress we practice reading fluently, comprehension and understanding plot, setting, characters and theme.
