About Alesa

Teaching has been a passion of mine for the past 11 years. I can remember days in my childhood where I would "play school" with my sister, with me as the teacher. My love of teaching and helping children grow has only expanded from there. This is what led me to obtain my Master's degree in Elementary Education and seek a teaching career. Helping children learn and guide them to discovery on their own brings me great joy.

I pride myself on working hard to meet the needs of all my students with their individual needs. I have been known by my students to create fun and engaging lessons that bring the topic to life, particularly in the area of math. I understand that learning difficult concepts is not always fun, so I do my best to look at the difficult areas in a creative way to spark interest and understanding in all students. I also specialize in reading and writing. Growing up, I was never seen without a book in hand, and awards were won for my creative writing in school. This led me to get my undergrad degree in the area of English with a Writing emphasis. I excel at proofreading and helping the students to see how to make their writing come alive. Reading is broken down through various strategies depending on the need. Comprehension of the material is a huge aspect that is focused on through the use of context clues and other various methods.

I try to be flexible with time, but I do have a 24 hour cancellation policy. For the first meeting, we can meet at the library in town. I do have a baby, so it would be nice to have further meetings at my home. Parents are always welcome to sit in on the tutoring session.

1st-6th grade only, please.

Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have! I look forward to working with you!

Test Preparation:
Common Core

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.

Bible Studies

I have been studying the Bible my entire life. I search for meaning throughout the Bible and make it applicable to my life. This is a habit I have made for myself, and I find no greater joy than teaching the Bible to others.

Common Core

A an elementary school teacher for the pat 11 years, I am well versed in the Common Core. While I do not "teach to the test," I know the types of questions asked and can help guide the students to success.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching elementary school-aged children for the past 11 years. I teach to the individual student, meeting his or her needs. I take the students from where they are and bring them to a level where they can succeed in their classroom. Every student learns differently, and I find how each student learns and help him or her understands.

Elementary Math

I have taught elementary math for 11 years and make it fun and engaging. My students love coming to math class because it is made personal and applicable to them.

Proofreading

I have a BA in English with a Writing emphasis. I have taught elementary students how to write and edit their own papers. I have led my students to success on the standardized tests, obtaining 2nd in the district for highest scores!

Reading

I have taught elementary reading for 11 years. Within my classes have been a wide range of ability levels, from struggling reader to gifted reader. I have brought my students to success by starting where they are and bringing them to the next level. I have taken struggling readers and have helped them develop a passion for reading.
