About Morgan


Bio

I love teaching. From camp counselor to outdoor instructor to classroom teacher, I have over 19 years of experience working with kids aged 10-18. I have two Colorado teaching licenses: Elementary Education K-6 and 6-12 English. My breadth in teaching experience is evidenced by my Language Arts teaching placements in most grades between 4th and 12th Grade.

I love teaching. From camp counselor to outdoor instructor to classroom teacher, I have over 19 years of experience working with kids aged 10-18. I have two Colorado teaching licenses: Elementary Education K-6 and 6-12 English. My breadth in teaching experience is evidenced by my Language Arts teaching placements in most grades between 4th and 12th Grade. I have unique passion and experience having taught a diversity of global and local curriculum in public, charter, and private schools for 12 years.

I implement a variety of assessments as tools for measuring understanding, comprehension, and growth. As a reading teacher, I group students by reading level and work on a variety of skills such as vocabulary, multi-syllabic words, prefixes, etc. As a writing teacher, I can enhance writers' ideas in most genres from song writing to poetry to expository essays.

My experiences with outdoor and experiential education have further developed and provided me with an abundant set of educational tools. By combining my outdoor education teaching skills with public school curriculum, I now have a better skill set to teach outcome-based lessons for those spatial, visual, auditory, and traditional learners. For example, I may have a student show me facial expressions they imagine a character might have in order to observe reading comprehension.

I will bring a unique perspective to tutoring because I have spent so much time in the classroom teacher's chair. Because I know what is expected in the classroom, I will support your child's education through tutoring, mentoring, and developing good study habits.

I have 5 years of teaching in the elementary classroom. I love to incorporate movement, visuals, and videos into my math instruction. I'm familiar with the Common Core Standards and NGSS. I wish I had a whole science lab like Bill Nye!

When teaching elementary students, I can teach anything from the fundamentals of reading such as pronunciation, vowel patterns, multi-syllabic words, and vocabulary to visualizing texts and identifying important narrative elements. When teaching older students I will teach reading with a more critical and analytical focus through short stories. With writing tutoring, I'm experienced with teaching the mechanics of a sentence to the organization and creativity of a college essay.

I can't wait to meet you, recognize your accomplishments at your level, and grow from there!

Very helpful edits, fast turn around time!

Helped edit my daughter's college essays. Was very helpful with his suggestions, good communication and really helped us out when we had very little time. Thank you so much!

Patient, creative, fun to work with

Morgan was great! He really helped my kid get on track with his study habits. He engaged Ian at the level that he needed support. Thanks for helping us cross the finish line at the end of the school year!
