I am a Certified Teacher in the State of Washington with Endorsements in Elementary Education K-8, Early Childhood Education, P-3 and Drama 4-12. I am currently working as a Substitute Teacher for The Fife Public Schools. I fill in for Teachers in various subject areas upon their absences. I like working one on one with students to help them learn a particular subject. I use motivation techniques to build students self confidence up. I believe students can learn anything if given the right encouragement. I taught Drama through The City of Lakewood and the students read and acted out plays, performed Improvisations, played theatre games, and many other fun activities. I also performed in plays at The Lakewood Playhouse and recently became a member of The Dramatists Guild of America.

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 hold a Washington State Teaching Certificate with endorsements in P-3 Early Childhood Education and K-8 Elementary Education.

Phonics

I have taught Phonics in a First Grade and a Preschool class. In the Preschool class I used a Washington State Learning Curriculum through an ECAP Reading Grant based out of The Puget Sound Education District.

I took a Study Skills class while I was attending college. I was able to learn how to schedule time each day to study for your classes, how to memorize spelling words, and how to use Cliff Notes, to name a few things.

I am a Communication Major and hold a Teaching endorsement in Theatre Arts. I have been active in local Theatre as a Actor and taught Drama through The City of Lakewood. I coach Improvisation, Voice control, and reading Plays and Scenes.
