About Lee

I have a Masters of Science in Elementary Education. I have been Certified K - 6 for over 20 years in the State of Connecticut.

I have been a classroom teacher for twenty years. I have taught third and fourth grade. I have worked with a wide range of students over the years with a variety of strengths and needs. In addition to that I have also worked with a number of ESL students as well . Finally, I have raised three children of my own and helped them with their homework and academic needs. So I have experienced the needs of students from both inside and outside the classroom over the years.

I understand that sometimes, confidence is the area of concern, that any academic area can become confusing at any time for many students. The opportunity to work quietly in a low stress, one on one environment can sometimes be the key to unlocking a child's confusion around a subject. I am able to provide patient explanations and a way to apply that comprehension to classroom expectations.

I have had many years in my classroom working with a wide range of readers. I have consistently had success with helping students learn to think about the words on the page so that they truly understand what they are reading. I have worked with students who need basic phonics understanding, to students whose area of concern is a more challenging ability to understand context clues and to make meaning from their reading.

Since the introduction of Common Core, I have worked cohesively with my colleagues to understand the Common Core Standards as they relate to learning in the classroom. I have worked to breakdown the language in the standards as it can be applied to child friendly concepts with success in reading, writing and math skills.

I have had 20 years experience as a public school elementary teacher. In addition I have participated in numerous workshops and conference to stay informed about changes in curriculum, educational standards and student development.

I am looking forward to working with your child to help him or her become a confident and successful student.

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 been teaching in a public school classroom using the Common Core State Standards as a driving force in lesson planning and implementation for the last five years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Masters of Science in Elementary Education. I have been Certified K-6 for over 20 years in the State of Connecticut.

Study Skills

Helping students in a classroom setting for over 20 years, I have taught all of them with study skills. Learning to organize materials, prioritize their work and understand the questions they are being asked to answer are just as important as being able to actually do the work.
