About Heidi

Hi there,

Teaching is my passion. I have taught in public education for 13 years. I've taught grades k-5. I've always enjoyed working with kids. My favorite experiences have been teaching reading as well as watching my own children learn to read. I enjoy the "ah-ha" moments children have as they discover things in the world around them and make connections. I love when children ask questions and I can guide them to the answers. Like I said, teaching is my passion, and I look forward to having the opportunity to make a difference one child at a time.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught grades k-5 in the last 12 years. I am familiar with the standards and curriculum of each of these grade levels.

Phonics

I have taught 9 years of first grade. I have an understanding of phonics and phonemic awareness. I have used many strategies to teach phonics including poems, songs, word play games as well as basic worksheets.

Study Skills

As a teacher who has taught grades k-5 I have experience with multiple levels of study skills. I have taught organizational skills including outlining, note taking, key points, drawing conclusions, study guides and connecting with material. I myself take notes and organize information in my own life on a daily basis. I have experience using different methods of teaching study skills including note cards, highlighters and quizzes.

Swimming

I learned to swim at 3 years old. I swam on competitive swim teams from ages 5-17, after which I taught swimming lessons for various companies through college and am currently teaching swimming lessons on my own.
