Hello! I am a mother of 6 and I have been a teacher for the past eleven years. Through my experience as a parent and as a teacher, I see the vast differences in student learning styles. While some are very visual learners, others are more auditory or tactile. I believe that all students learn differently, and I work tirelessly to develop lessons that provide that kind of individualization for each student. I am experienced at all elementary levels in all subject areas, as well as in ESL
for children and ESOL
for adult learners. I am also very comfortable and experienced with students who have IEP's and 504 plans and I have worked closely with the special needs
teachers at my school to find superior ways to support these students. I have taught ESL and I have worked with students and adults from many different backgrounds and cultures. I believe in building strong foundations, which are often missing due to the pace and expectations of today's public school environment. I also believe in "gap filling" because sometimes all a student needs is more specific practice to allow for understanding and growth. Tutoring, then, can be continuous support, or can be relatively short-term, depending on the the students' needs and goals. I am well-versed in current technology, and believe in the benefits of apps and games as ways to practice and support skill building. I am always open to conversation, and always willing to adapt my approach as needed. I am very kind and believe in positive motivation. Students would describe me as fun, friendly, and fair. I look forward to working with you on this journey!
My credentials include: B.A. from Judson University, Masters in Education and Teaching Certification from Aurora University, and 18 hours in ESL and endorsement in ESL from National Louis University, Additionally, I have my endorsements in Middle School Language
Arts, Social Science
, and Math
6 hours notice required
I am happy to discuss options for multiple students from the same family as well as small group lessons on the same subject. These options will reduce the per child cost, so let's talk!
