Adams State University (Elementary Ed)
My love for teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning. I am a 6th grade English teacher and this is my 11th year in the regular classroom. I love helping students learn their potential in writing. To be creative, descriptive, energetic, and mindful of their writing. We learn how to bring our writing to life by using details, similes, metaphors, and other figurative language components. With these strategies, test scores will go up.
Hard work and dedication is something I strive for and feel I accomplish much more in life as a person and as a teacher when I am dedicated to a goal.
Teaching is a great passion of mine. Truly the best job I have ever had.
I have my undergraduate degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Art. I have my master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction with an emphasis in Reading. Grammar and vocabulary are also an essential part of my daily instruction.
My goal for each school year is to challenge each of my students but not overwhelm them. I also hold my students accountable for their own learning. We work on progress monitoring along with daily formative assessments which will include feedback of their learning progress.
I encourage students to give me feedback as we work on a unit, as well.
I hold myself to a high standard. For that reason, I often ask for feedback and I will not bill a parent if the student and parent is not satisfied with my tutoring.
I try to be flexible with time. While I do have a 24-hour cancellation policy, I offer make-up classes.
To ensure that students have a quiet and comfortable study space in which to work with me, I would like to meet at the Brighton library.
I look forward to hearing from you and help you achieve success in your studies! My love for teaching comes from a lifelong love of learning. I am a 6th grade English teacher and this is my 11th year in the regular classroom. I love helping students learn their potential in … Read more
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.
