About Tiffany

I am a certified and qualified Colorado Early Childhood (EC) Educator. I have an Associate of General Studies with an Emphasis in Early Childhood Education with an EC Group Leader Certificate and an EC Director Certificate that were obtained in 2008. I also have over 4200 hours of teaching experience and altogether about 4 years of tutoring experience. In my academic career, I won multiple awards in math, science, spelling and creative writing competitions. I was on the honor roll and the Dean's List. I was also a National Junior Honor Society inductee, a National Merit Semi-Finalist and a Johns Hopkins University Talent Scholar (meaning I took the SAT in the seventh grade and scored very high). I reside in the Denver Metro area with my husband (a fourth generation Colorado native) of almost 7 years and our three children - Andy (5), Rosie (3) and AJ (2).

I have an insatiable passion for discovery-oriented learning and love to help others experience the same. I believe in making learning fun so my sessions are engaging and interactive. This makes it feel more like light-hearted play than grueling work, even for my older students. I also help my students find, aim for, and achieve a level of excellence that, I believe, is innate in everyone.

I am a well-rounded tutor who can assist students in the liberal arts subjects as well as in math and science. I tutor in standardized test preparation as well. I welcome challenged, or exceptional, learners. I look forward to serving you!

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.

Algebra 1

I have studied Algebra for a number of years. I am also the recipient of multiple math field day competition awards. I also took the SAT (the math portion covers Algebra 1, Algebra 2 and Geometry) and scored very high earning me the distinction of being a Johns Hopkins University Talent Scholar.

American History

I have an Associates Degree; and, as a liberal arts major in college, I took several classes in U.S. as well as Native American History. As a tutor in American History, I like to look at it as helping my students understand the American meta-narrative, meaning America's big story. As with any story, there are always two sides and, when tutoring this subject, I like to take the holistic approach and explore both. I look forward to working with you!

Biology

In high school, I was always an above grade level student excelling particularly in the life sciences such as biology, anatomy and physiology, health and nutrition and genetics. I was also a Johns Hopkins University Talent Scholar; and, In the early years of my college career, I was a pre-med student.

Braille

I am blind. I am a graduate of the Colorado Center for the Blind (CCB) independence training program where I learned Grade 1 uncontracted Braille, Grade 2 Contracted braille and computer Braille. In the 11 years since my graduation from CCB, I have used Grade 1 and Grade 2 Braille for reading, writing, labeling, note taking, etc.

Elementary (K-6th)

As a certified Colorado educator, I have close to 4000 hours of field experience. My formal training covers teaching children up to third grade; however, I have taken additional courses in literacy and education that allow me the ability to adapt to tutoring children in the late elementary years and beyond. I also have education and experience to tutor and support challenged learners of all ages with measurable success.

Elementary Science

I won multiple science fair awards at local, regional and state competitions including multiple awards from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for achieving excellence in the sciences. I was also inducted into the National Junior Honor Society, an honor roll student for seven consecutive years, a National Merit Semi-Finalist and a Johns Hopkins University Talent Scholar.

English

I am a Colorado educator with over 4200 hours of teaching experience. In addition, I have four years of experience as a tutor. I majored in English when I was in college and have received multiple awards in creative writing competitions including national contests hosted by such organizations as the Daughters of the American Revolution.

GED

I took the test myself years ago and did very well, and I now hold teaching credentials from the state of Colorado. I have also taught GED test prep classes back in Houston Texas where I helped several students get their GED. I also helped a lady here in Littleton start her journey to getting her GED.

General Computer

Before becoming a certified Colorado educator, I spent almost two decades in the information technology industry working my way up from doing cable plant installation to desktop support to network administration and project management. I have also been a computer instructor for individuals as well as small businesses. My students have also included challenged learners.

Grammar

In addition to my certification and experience as an Early Childhood educator, I am an award-winning amateur writer and playwright. I have consistently scored high in the verbal sections of such standardized tests as the SAT and the PSAT. A testament to this fact is my designation as a National Merit Semi-finalist and a Johns Hopkins University Talent Scholar.

Handwriting

I am an Early Childhood educator in Colorado. My formal teaching credentials cover children ages birth to third grade, and our training is heavily concentrated in all aspects of literacy including handwriting. I have specific experience with Handwriting Without Tears, the handwriting curriculum used in many schools and early learning centers in the Denver Metro area.

Microsoft Word

I have been using and supporting Microsoft Word for over 20 years in my role as an IT professional having a broad knowledge base and wide platform of experience in the areas of software application installation/support, hardware installation/support, networking, telephony as well as business and technical communications. I have used Microsoft Word not only as a business professional but also as a student at the university level so I would be familiar with MS Word functions that would prove to be very useful to students.

Psychology

I have a good command of and have had formal instruction in concepts surrounding general psychology, critical thinking as well as child/human development. I am also versed in the writing process and am familiar with APA format guidelines.

QuickBooks

Having an IT career that spanned nearly two decades, I have a broad knowledge base and wide array of professional experience in the area of application support, hardware/software installation/support, data networking and telephony. I have also owned small businesses where I have used Quickbooks effectively as my main accounting platform and have trained other business owners to do the same.

Reading

As a Colorado early educator, I have specific training in learning through literacy, meaning I can center a whole developmentally appropriate curriculum with lessons in reading.

SAT Writing

I took the SAT in the seventh grade and scored high enough to become a Johns Hopkins University Talent Scholar. I took it again in the eleventh grade for the purpose of college entrance. Both times I scored high on the verbal section, and I majored in English at Metro. I am also an award winning amateur playwright and short story writer.

Spanish

I have an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education plus two professional certificates plus over 2800 hours of experience teaching young children. I also minored in Spanish and received a high score on WyzAnt's qualifying test for Spanish tutors.

Spelling

I have an Associates Degree in Early Childhood Education as well as over 3000 hours of field experience as an educator in Colorado. I am also a multiple spelling bee award winner, and I achieved a high score on Wyzant's qualifying test for Spelling tutors.

Writing

Writing has been a hobby of mine that I have enjoyed for many years. I have written poems, short stories, expository essays, research papers and narratives. I am an award-winning amateur playwright having had my scripts receive international honors in writing competitions. I wrote my first play at the age of 9; and, it was performed at the local community children's theater in the town I lived in at the time. I majored in English at Metropolitan State University of Denver where I was within a year of graduation when I stopped going to school to raise my three children.

Excellent tutor!

Tiffany has a unique perspective that other tutors we have worked with do not possess. My daughter is severely dyslexic & she is actually learning well for the very first time. She is in 10th grade. We wish we had found her years ago!
