I have wide experience as a teacher! I've been a classroom teacher for Kindergarten, first grade, and sixth grade, as well as homeschooling my own four children for the past nine years. I love exploring the many options that help each student master material to feel proud of each successful step.
I use lots of manipulative materials for elementary students to connect abstract concepts to concrete materials. Fun projects also make the learning more memorable. I've created high-interest social studies projects that help students practice skills like planning, organizing, reading, writing, and editing in a fun way!
I strive to evaluate where each student is currently and set realistic goals of high achievement. Fun study sessions and appropriate homework extend and stretch learning.
In the area of Elementary Math, I use a variety of manipulatives, drills, games, and songs to achieve successful math growth and retention. Fun and challenging is the goal!
I look forward to hearing from you to begin a successful journey of academic growth! I have wide experience as a teacher! I've been a classroom teacher for Kindergarten, first grade, and sixth grade, as well as homeschooling my own
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.
I have a degree in Elementary Education and have taught self-contained classrooms in Kindergarten and 1st grade. I have also taught language arts and social studies for 6th grade at the middle school level. I have homeschooled my own and other children from Kindergarten through middle school. I love teaching!
