Bio

Hello! I went into Elementary Education because I love seeing the confidence build in students as they recognize all that they are truly capable of. I am passionate about helping children see their strengths and talents. After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education I taught Elementary school full time for 5 years. When I started having children of my own, I continued working in the schools part time as well as tutoring students after school. I enjoy teaching children...

Hello! I went into Elementary Education because I love seeing the confidence build in students as they recognize all that they are truly capable of. I am passionate about helping children see their strengths and talents. After graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education I taught Elementary school full time for 5 years. When I started having children of my own, I continued working in the schools part time as well as tutoring students after school. I enjoy teaching children one on one and preparing a lesson that is geared specifically for them.

As I listen to children read I take notes regarding what common strategies they use for decoding and comprehension, what phonics topics they need more help with, and what strategies could help improve fluency. I also believe that a child's home and classroom habits are key to improvement and I can assist parents in assessing what ways they can improve home instruction. Overall I always aim for children to see learning and improving in a positive light. I will strive to help them stay engaged, positive, and interested during our tutoring time. I am open to any suggestions parents have about how to work with their child and to foster a positive learning environment.

I believe the most successful math tutoring is pre-teaching rather than re-teaching. This requires some extra communication with the child's classroom teacher, but I believe it is well worth it. In this approach, I would receive the plans for the upcoming math lessons. I would have mini-lessons with your child in which we would cover the key concepts and vocabulary. This sets your child up for success in math as they have already been exposed to the material and will be able to approach the upcoming lesson with confidence and increased engagement.

I meet the students where they are at and notice their strengths. I will have your child read aloud to me in each session, this helps me to hear what strategies they are using for decoding as well as what extra support they need with syste
