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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have both a Connecticut and Massachusetts license for teaching Elementary school. I have completed two long-term substitute positions in the 5th grade. Additionally, I taught 3rd grade for another long-term position. Currently, I am in my second year of teaching 4th grade in a full-time position.

Handwriting

I have both a Connecticut and Massachusetts license for teaching Elementary school. I have completed two long-term substitute positions in the 5th grade. Additionally, I taught 3rd grade for another long-term position. Currently, I am in my second year of teaching 4th grade in a full-time position. In all of these positions, I have been responsible for instruction in handwriting, most currently instructing with the Zaner-Bloser program.

Phonics

I have both a Connecticut and Massachusetts license for teaching Elementary school. I have completed two long-term substitute positions in the 5th grade. Additionally, I taught 3rd grade for another long-term position. Currently, I am in my second year of teaching 4th grade in a full-time position. In these positions, I have used the Wilson Reading program and Journeys. Additionally, my concentration for my M.A. is in literacy.

Social Studies

I have both a Connecticut and Massachusetts license for teaching Elementary school. I have completed two long-term substitute positions in the 5th grade. Additionally, I taught 3rd grade for another long-term position. Currently, I am in my second year of teaching 4th grade in a full-time position. In all positions, I taught social studies aligned with the state standards, covering history, economics and government. Additionally, I conduct research projects with my students that correlate with social studies topics.

Study Skills

As an upper elementary school teacher, the vocabulary and concepts tend to be more difficult. In science, I have my students complete vocabulary cards to use for studying content-specific words. These cards consist of the word, its definition, a sentence including that particular word, and a picture that shows how that word looks in the scientific world. Additionally, I find digital connections to more difficult concepts, including videos, audio recording, images, and interactive games.
