About Colleen

My interest in tutoring is based upon the fact that I have a true passion for teaching. I have experience and an education, but I feel that without passion none of that matters. I love helping my students get to that ah-ha moment. I work hard to explain new or old concepts in a way that all students can comprehend. I am always able to put myself in the student’s place and look at a lesson through their eyes. I am aware of the fact that not all students learn in the same manner so I constantly keep that in mind when working one on one or with a whole class. I also love every minute of teaching and I believe my students can see that when we work together. My love and passion for education continually makes me strive on a daily basis to be my best.
I have nine years of experience teaching. I started out as a substitute, moved to NJ and became a kindergarten teacher, and more recently moved back to CT to pursue a graduate education and CT certification. I have been certified since October 2012. Since then I have been working in a variety of schools as a substitute (mainly long term positions). Finally, some personality traits I possess that may help you get to know me include kindness, a sense of humor, empathy, contagious enthusiasm, the ability to reflect, and a willingness to help. I also genuinely care for the education, safety, security, overall well-being, and both the physical and mental health of every student I encounter.

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.
