About Alex

I am comfortable tutoring all elementary and middle school students with homework help, development of math, reading and writing skills. I have been teaching fifth grade for two years. I have just begun my third year. I have a pupil license to drive school passengers. I am First Aid/ CPR trained for infants and children. I have a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and Psychology. I just received a Master's in ESL. I believe I would be a good fit for a tutoring position. I look forward to hearing from you.

I teach fifth graders with a range of educational abilities. By learning some foundational reading and fluency skills, students can gain confidence and learn strategies to help them overcome difficulties.

Since I teach the Common Core everyday for math and reading, I feel that I have a strong foundation in the fifth grade expectations and can carry over those ideas to both lower and upper grades.

I teach fifth grade, so my understanding of elementary students is always developing. I have also babysat for children of ages infant to 11 years old so my qualifications range as well.

I believe I could help you or your child succeed and grow in his or her academic abilities. Please contact me if you would like to learn more about me, or would like to start have a teacher as a tutor! I look forward to hearing from 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.

Common Core

I have taught for two years using Common Core standards in all of my instructional practices. I teach two programs that are aligned with the Common Core daily. I know the standards well for fifth grade, but can adjust my understandings if the job was for a different grade level.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified Elementary Education teacher. I have passed all teaching certification exams, and have taught under that license for three years. I have an undergraduate degree in Elementary Education, and a Master's Degree in English as a Second language. I am currently working on a certification as a Reading Specialist as well.

Handwriting

I currently teach cursive handwriting for my fifth-grade students. I have taught younger students (first graders) as well, and could help develop motor skills to enhance handwriting skills in all children.

Phonics

I teach fifth-grade phonics and spelling skills. I have worked with lower-level elementary students as well to develop their phonetic awareness.
