I am a first grade teacher and I really enjoy my work! I love teaching reading and writing and seeing students progress. I have been teaching for 2 years and I have worked closely with the reading specialist at my school to improve my reading instruction. I've worked with a variety of students from gifted to special education students.

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 teach elementary subjects K-6 because I have a Virginia Professional Teacher's License. I have participated in several trainings to stay abreast of new reading and math strategies. I work closely with the reading and math specialist to improve instruction. I have a Bachelors in Education from Hampton University and a Master's in Education from George Mason University.

Elementary Math

I have been teaching 1st grade for 3 years and I love math! I have helped come up with intervention plans for struggling students and have seen them improve greatly. I am well versed in resources such as Investigations and the Guided Math model.

Phonics

I am a 1st grade teacher in the Fairfax County School System. I have worked with students extensively in guided reading which includes phonics and reading instruction. I also participate in teaching two intervention groups that focus specifically on phonics and writing.

Reading

Teaching reading is one of my greatest pleasures! Throughout my education at Hampton University and George Mason University, I have had extensive training on reading instruction. Since getting a job with Fairfax County Public Schools, I have participated in several trainings and I work closely with the reading specialists to improve reading instruction. I am well versed in the Guided Reading Model, as well as the Daily 5 model for literacy centers. This year I have lead two intervention groups in writing and reading. Most students in my groups now have a better handle on phonics, mechanics of writing, and reading fluency.
