About Robin

I am an energetic, focused teacher who believes every child can learn. Some of us can pick up on a new concept right away, but some of us need that extra help. I love that moment when a child finally can make that connection. I have my master's degree in elementary education and have been teaching as a daily substitute and long-term substitute since 2014.

I have passed the Foundations of Reading test, taken numerous courses in reaching reading and phonics and continue to read up and follow practices to teach language arts.

As past of my coursework at the University of Bridgeport and as a long-term substitute, I regularly use and teach Common Core.

I am patient, and know that handwriting helps students spell and read.

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.

Common Core

As part of my elementary education training, I had to take methods courses. There, I had to design and implement lesson plans that followed the Common Core State Standards. I continue to follow the standards when designing and teaching my lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I received my master's degree in elementary education (k-6) in 2014, and received my certification to teach those grades in December 2015. Since graduating college, I have been substituting from kindergarten through fifth grade. I am currently a long-term sub for kindergarten.

Handwriting

I have been teaching printing to kindergarten students since November. I use my knowledge as an educated elementary school teacher to help students to form fluid, smooth motions.
