About Gretchen

I am excited for the opportunity to work with your student. My background includes 15 years in the classroom K-12, with most of my years spent in K-5. I have a masters in Literacy as well as a second masters in Leadership. I am currently licensed to be a School Principal, Literacy Specialist, and K-5 teacher.

My passion is teaching students to believe in themselves and be risk takers when jumping into their assignments. Teachers love when kids just "go for it" and I am an expert in coaching that skill. I want all of my students to know that it's ok to ask questions, ok to make mistakes, and ok to ask for help. With younger students K-5, I use the Orton Gillingham Phonics strategy, as well as decodable readers specific to a child's needs or weak areas. In math, we work together to find the strategies they are most comfortable with when solving problems. I am currently the coordinator for a Project Based Learning school and I understand the need for students to have voice and choice in all of their assignments. One of the most common mistakes we make as educators, is to expect every student to learn the same way with the same instruction. My goal is to offer many strategies and help my students find the one that works for them. I look forward to meeting your family!
If you are looking for a veteran teacher who is up to date on the latest Literacy strategies, please contact me! My schedule is flexible over the summer and I'm ready to go!

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 am a licensed K-6 teacher with a masters in Literacy and Curriculum. I've been teaching in the classroom for 15 years and feel confident I can meet the needs of your student. I specialize in building confidence in students who struggle to take risks by asking questions and choosing their own path of learning. More specifically, I believe there are many ways to find the answers, each students needs to find the one that works best for them.

Phonics

I am highly qualified in the Orton Gillingham, Zoo Phonics, Reading Mastery, and SIPPS phonics programs. Using the DIBELs assessment, I've had four consecutive years of bringing 100% of my students to a level of proficiency in phonics.
