I recently completed my Master's degree from George Mason University in integrating technology in the schools. I wanted to continue my education while learning how to educate students to be good users of technology and information. I've also attended Florida A&M University where I received my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education with an English Speakers of Other Languages endorsement.
I started teaching in Virginia as a fourth grade and have taught English language learners as well as special education students. I've taught third grade for the last three years and have loved every minute doing so. I currently teach ESOL and it's very rewarding to watch children blossom and be confident as they learn to speak English.
For the last several years I have also worked to help students in after school programs in reading, math and science. I believe in helping children by linking their living to their learning and vise versa. I also think that by "playing" games my students get the ability to take on the role and learn the rules for many concepts that I teach in class.
My students need structure and responsibilities and I feel that I help to fill that need for them in their lives. I like to help students feel like they are needed and special to the class family. Every year when I promote my kids to the next grade level I feel as if they are well prepared mentally and academically.
If you want to have fun while learning then I'm the tutor for you!!
I believe that I am qualified to tutor in the elementary k-6th level because I am an elementary teacher with a valid Virginia teaching certificate. I've also taught third and fourth grade students for several years now. Another reason I feel as though I'm qualified is because I've worked in after school programs at my school in reading, math and science.
