About Taffeta

I have worked as a teacher and tutor for over 7 years. My strengths lie in working with students in the areas of English Language Arts and Math. I love helping people become comfortable with what was previously stressful by taking the time to listen to their problems with a subject and showing them how to understand in a new way. I have taught many, many children to learn to read and have worked as a published author in the academic word. Because of this, I feel confident tutoring all ages in English Language Arts. My elementary students did exceptionally on their state standardized math assessments and so I feel confident tutoring in Math through 3rd grade.

I am a published author who has taught in various homes and public schools. I scored in the 92 percentile of the GRE in the area of language. I still hold my public school certification in Elementary Education as well. Currently I work as an literacy education researcher at a research 1 university.

I hope you and I can work together to let you experience more success!

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.

Common Core

I have taught for two years during the implementation of Common Core. Also, I have worked as an education researcher at ASU where we use the Common Core Standards to index educational activities. Due to these experiences, I have read, implemented, and internalized the Common Core standards and can tutor with an understanding of what they mean.

Elementary (K-6th)

I completed a post-baccalaureate degree in Elementary Education with a 4.0 GPA. I have also taught 1st grade for two years, 5th grade during my student teaching and 6th, 7th, and 8th grade ELA, Math and Science. I am certified to teach Elementary School in Arizona. Also, I have worked as tutor to elementary aged children.
