About Alexis

I have taught multiple grades in my 14 years as a teacher with the Mesa Unified School District. I have a great rapport with students from kindergarten through 12th grade, however, I specialize in 2nd through 8th. I believe that if a student doesn't learn the way I teach, then I need to teach the way he or she learns. Whatever the student's needs are, it is my job as a teacher to meet them. I have tutored and taught subjects from remedial reading using basic phonics to algebra 1.

I have a deep-rooted belief that the best learning takes place when the student is engaged and having fun. I spend each and every day as a fifth grade teacher trying to bring laughter and smiles to some pretty difficult lessons. I love my job and my students. My day is never complete until I've turned on a light bulb in someone's brain. It brings a sense of confidence to the student and a feeling of accomplishment to my own life. No task is too large or too small. Every bit of knowledge we gain in this life makes us a more complete person. I love being a part of that process!

**At this time I am able to schedule new students for summer months only. Thank you.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

In the regular education classroom, I have taught students with varying needs. ADD/ADHD is a very prominent label at this time. Not only do I have a child of my own who suffers from this, but I have had many students who do as well. Many different strategies can be used to help these students focus and be successful.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified fifth grade teacher, working currently in the Mesa school district. I have taught students from second through sixth grade in my time with the district. My degree from NAU included a dual major with both elementary and special education.

Special Needs

From time to time, even as a general education teacher, we include students with many special needs into our "circle of friends." Besides my training in college for working with students with special needs, I have had the opportunity to provide inclusion services for students with emotional or learning disabilities in my classroom. We have welcomed students with Autism or Aspergers into our class on a full time basis as well.
