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.

ADD/ADHD

As the Groton Parks and Recreation Special Needs Program Coordinator, I worked on an individual 1-on-1 basis with several student diagnosed with ADHD. Our sessions combined athletic and academic coaching with an emphasis on reading comprehension lessons and attention strategies.

Aspergers

As a North Windham Elementary Neag School of Education student teaching intern, I create and execute daily instructive agendas for an assortment of developmentally disabled elementary students (primarily, low-functioning students with Asperger's Syndrome) to facilitate their transition between special education and mainstream classroom settings. Modifications are made in accordance with their respective IEPs and PPT meeting discussions throughout the school year to ensure subject retention and optimal classroom performance.

Autism

In my capacity as a special education department paraprofessional for the Groton Public School district, I mentor 3-4 autistic first and second grade students on a rotating weekly basis.
In addition, I research and evaluate the Autism Spectrum Disorder of my designated student while providing optimal in-school support in accordance with Positive Behavior Interventions and Individualized Education Plans.

Career Development

I am the Practice Interview Program Administrative Coordinator of UCONN's Center for Career Development. I conduct 3-5 practice interviews per week, encompassing a personalized feedback response section directed toward individual undergraduate, graduate, and PhD candidates. Within this position, I have undergone extensive training in order to polish my resume/interview assessment qualifications. Additional administrative responsibilities include editing and developing mock interview training manuals by assessing and improving upon 21st century interviewing strategies; preparing incoming Practice Interviewers for independent release and directing weekly staff meetings to evaluate progress; and researching specific majors and career positions tailored to each interviewee's particular field in order to ensure a customized interviewing experience. In critiquing undergraduate students' résumés and cover letters, I discuss the advantages of certain format types and content information to ensure accuracy while serving as a specialized office source. Furthermore, I independently administer Microsoft PowerPoint presentations to university students and faculty, informing them of the benefits which Career Services can bring to their future professions and campus departments.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently completing my Masters Year in Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Connecticut. I recently graduated from UCONN's 5-year teaching program in Elementary Education. I intend to pursue a post-graduate career in both Elementary and Special Education (subsequently, Elementary School and Administration and Educational Leadership). My experience as a dedicated, spirited, and patient tutor has spanned across a diverse array of age ranges and ability levels. I am well-versed in adaptive curriculum-building, lesson-planning, behavior management, and study skills development which can be tailored for your child's individual academic needs. I currently serve as a youth activities programmer and serve as a special education department paraprofessional for several regional public school district during college semester breaks. In addition, I was actively involved in numerous educational organizations, which include the Big Brothers Big Sisters organization, America Reads literacy improvement, and elementary after-school enrichment program.

Handwriting

During small groupwork activities in my Windham Elementary School clinic placement as a UCONN Neag School of Education IB/M Program student, I independently crafted lesson plans to improve 2nd graders' spelling and handwriting skills. Guided Practice assignments were comprised of cursive/script and basic penmanship exercises that built upon the alphabetical foundations students had mastered in kindergarten years.

Hard Of Hearing

As an officer in UCONN's Hear for You Audiology and Speech Pathology organization, I coordinated numerous outreach events on a local and regional scale for Connecticut schools for the deaf. During these social and enrichment-based events, I interacted with large groups of hard-of-hearing elementary and middle school students to facilitate their peer cooperation.

Microsoft Outlook

In composing a formal email response, I demonstrated my mastery of a basic electronic mail service (MS Outlook provider) in formulating, manually recording, retrieving, reading, and processing messages received. In responding to specific messages to create an email-based conversation, I activated the "reply to sender/all" and forwarding functions; modified text formats; attached computer files and saved desktop resources; inserted web links and visual content; configured and incorporated specialized e-mail external mail lists relevant to professional information needs; selected recipients from my address book; categorized contacts by related groups; and sorted messages into filing folders on the basis of theme, subtopics, and priority level/importance of content.

Microsoft Publisher

In constructing my UCONN Center for Career Development Practice Interview Microsoft PowerPoint Presentation artifact, a thorough knowledge of this multimedia authoring tool was pivotal. Elemental skills required to complete this artifact included: familiarity with slide formatting and text editing features; the identification, selection, and integration of video clips and digital images in varying formats for use in the presentation; the creation of both simple and sophisticated animations, slide progressions, and content design tools; the insertion of saved clip art, photos, documents, and web links onto specific pages; the retrieval of these items from computer desktop storage; presentation delivery with the use of computer projection systems.

Microsoft Windows

In composing my formal EGEN 3100 Windham Clinic/Seminar lesson plan on Microsoft Word, I was required to utilize both foundational and progressive technical skills to construct the formal product. Among the basic tasks essential to completion included: entering, editing, copying, pasting, and modifying text; changing the font, size, style; activating manual spell check functions using the central tool bar; setting margins, line spacing, tabs, and paragraph markers; inserting the date, time, page number, tables, and visual graphics into my document. In direct connection with the ISTE National Educational Technology Standards (NETS), the target skills demonstrated during my Microsoft Word document creation encompassed: the use of advanced features of word processing to develop a professional product designed to structure and support learning activities. My initial technology artifact addresses the first tenet of ISTE teaching standards (#1), "facilitating and inspiring student learning" by integrating my subject matter knowledge, technological resources, and differentiation strategies into the composition of a formal Microsoft Word lesson plan. The resulting document provides a clear, effective presentation of learning objectives/student goals, procedures, necessary materials, formative and summative assessment measures, and extension activities which will guide my classroom instruction and planning efforts.

Phonics

In my outreach excursions to local Connecticut public school districts (presiding as the Public Relations Chair of the UCONN Future Educator's Association), I orchestrated extracurricular enrichment events for the Hartford district Mayberry Elementary School population, such as "Outreach to Teach" and "Science and Math Nights," which coincide with specific CT curricular guidelines. I coordinated numeracy and literacy workshops for fifth grade students to facilitate their phonemic awareness, interpretation of basic data, and comprehension of textual meanings.

I also instructed K-6 students in grammar and spelling through detailed phonics lessons/programs as a CT student teacher and literacy intervention coach. I am a certified Elementary teacher.

Praxis

During my application process to the UCONN Neag School of Education 5-year Masters Degree program, I completed a waiver for successfully passing the Praxis I Exam. In May 2015, I obtained my bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and am fully certified to teach in CT. I scored very high on my Praxis II 5031: Elementary Multiple Subjects exam and the Connecticut Foundations of Reading test.

Public Speaking

As the Practice Interview Program Administrative Coordinator of UCONN's Center for Career Development, I conduct 3-5 practice interviews per week, encompassing a personalized feedback response section directed toward individual undergraduate, graduate, and PhD candidates. Within this position, I have undergone extensive training in order to polish my resume/interview assessment qualifications. Additional administrative responsibilities include editing and developing mock interview training manuals by assessing and improving upon 21st century interviewing strategies; preparing incoming Practice Interviewers for independent release and directing weekly staff meetings to evaluate progress; and researching specific majors and career positions tailored to each interviewee's particular field in order to ensure a customized interviewing experience.

Furthermore, I independently administer Microsoft PowerPoint presentations to university students and faculty, informing them of the benefits which Career Services can bring to their future professions and campus departments. I also give weekly presentations with the Residential Life Department as an RA for Social Justice Education and the public relations office for the Connecticut Education Association.

Reading

I also hold a minor degree in English and am very passionate and well-versed in literacy disciplines (across all age ranges and grade levels up to graduate school).

I also instructed K-6 students in grammar and spelling through detailed phonics lessons/programs as a CT student teacher and literacy intervention coach.

Special Needs

I have had six consecutive years as a former Youth Recreational Athletic Coach for the Groton Parks and Recreation Inclusion Department provided me with the opportunity to promote the social interaction and physical fitness of disabled adolescents, children, and adults (in addition to undiagnosed, typical participants). Through my position as a substitute paraprofessional for the special needs department at S.B. Butler Elementary (Groton Public School District) during academic semester breaks, I have cultivated knowledge of the development and evaluation of ABA programs and adaptive services.

Study Skills

In the role of a Big Brothers Big Sisters elementary school facilitator, I provided my assigned student(s) with a list of academic resources and study skills strategies during after school enrichment periods.
In order to assure academic growth and skill development, I focused on such topics as time management, note-taking, and writing skills for my K-3 students involved in the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program.

Vocabulary

I have instructed K-6 students in grammar and spelling through detailed phonics lessons/programs as a CT student teacher and literacy intervention coach.
