About Monica

I have dedicated my life to educating young minds. I believe teaching is one of the most treasured and noble professions. Educating the next generation of our nation's youth is an honor. I believe in teaching to meet each child's individual needs and creating a curriculum based on how the child learns best.
I have years of experience in both tutoring and public school teaching. I am very familiar with the Connecticut Common Core State Standards and have experience with the new SBAC tests. I have taught within all grades from Kindergarten to 6th grade in reading, writing, mathematics, science, social studies and phonics. I am a certified teacher in the state of Connecticut.

I am a certified teacher in the state of Connecticut with years of experience in reading instruction both privately and publicly.

I have taught phonics explicitly while also passing the Connecticut Foundations of Reading exam which focuses primarily on phonics instruction pertaining to reading.

I am well versed in the SBAC test (the test that has taken over the CMTs) and what is required for students to best express their capabilities on the exam.

I would be honored to help you learn to the best of your ability! Please do not hesitate to contact me with questions or to schedule a lesson.

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.

Phonics

I am well versed in the DSA spelling tests as well as the Words their Way spelling curriculum. I have passed the Foundations of Reading Exam and have experience teaching explicit word study/phonics.

Reading

I am a 3rd grade teacher (CT state teaching certification for K-6) with a BA in English and a MA in Elementary Education. I am well versed in reading benchmark assessments including the SBAC, SRI and BAS.

Study Skills

I have experience administering and prepping students for the SBAC exams. I have tutored and explicitly taught many students how to prepare for taking tests both on the computer and on paper. I have taught students how to write and read for multiple genres as they would need to on an exam.
