About Stephanie

I have been working with children for about 6 years now. I started as an after school teacher and tutor for grades K-5 and then went to being a preschool teacher and then elementary teacher. I love working with elementary students and I especially love teaching them. I am currently a reading teacher for grades K-5. I take groups of children who are struggling in reading and assess them as well as build a program (lessons) that work for them and implement them. Before this I was a kindergarten and 4th grade teacher in which I taught all elementary subjects. I have also done a lot of one on one tutoring which I love.

When I teach I assess what the student needs help in and then build lessons to pinpoint those areas. I also have a lot of experience with differentiation, I teach based on how the child learns. I find ways to appeal to the child that will help them learn. I make sure to use visual and hands on practices when helping students understand as well. Children learn different ways and I know that it is important to find the best way each child will learn and use that to help tutor them in the areas needed. I love teaching and discovering what works for each student and I will always keep trying to find what works for each child.

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 kindergarten, second grade, and fourth grade as a classroom teacher which means I have knowledge of all subjects. I currently am teaching reading to struggling students in grades K-5. I have tutored students in all grades of elementary school one-on-one in reading and math. I know how to assess what students' strengths and challenges are and how to develop an individualized program for them. When I help a student I model what to do, guide them, and lastly have them do it independently. I also help students learn with their different learning styles, whether that is learning by doing, visual, or auditory. I make the lessons work for the individual student and how they learn.

Phonics

I have taught preschool as well as kindergarten and loved all the things I have done with phonics. When I teach phonics I make sure it is something that is practiced a lot and in a fun way. I like to use songs, games, sorts, and of course lots of reading and writing. I have assessed children in the phonics PALS test and then implemented lessons based on those results. I am currently a reading teacher for grades K-5. I take groups of children who are struggling in reading and assess them as well as build a program (lessons) that work for them and implement them.
