About Tracy

I have my bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. I taught Kindergarten for 4 years and was PE coach this past school year. I currently am a nanny and spend my off days substitute teaching, which allows me to work with a wide range of ages from infant to high school.

My main focus when it comes to academics is PreK-1st grade reading and writing. My expertise in the elementary setting has boosted my students reading and writing test scores. I have a large knowledge of early phonics and have used several different programs such as Saxon phonics and SIPPS to aid in the development of reading/writing and spelling early on. Whether you are wanting your little one to get a head start prior to kindergarten, or if your little one needs some extra help...I'm here for you!

I also offer private sports lessons. I played volleyball, softball and I was on the swim team in college. I worked as a lifeguard and taught swim lessons for my local pool, eventually working my way to teaching private lessons. I played volleyball in college and have had the opportunity to coach several different teams. I would love to share my knowledge and skills with your son/daughter!

I look forward in hearing from you!

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.

Handwriting

I taught Kindergarten for 4 years. Although handwriting is a very repetitive process, there are certain steps that can be taken and ways to make it more entertaining for children. Depending upon what level they are at, I will begin using lines with the dotted middle lines if they are struggling with letter formation and sizing. Eventually they will get the hang of letter proportions and be able to move on to a simple line. Sometimes it's a matter of what utensil they are using or learning the proper way to hold their pencil. Many first grade teachers would compliment me for my students writing capabilities after their kindergarten year in my class.

Phonics

I have my degree in Early Childhood Education and have taken many classes and workshops on phonics alone. I have used several different phonics curriculums such as Scott Foresman, Saxon Phonics and SIPPS phonics programs in the classroom. I realize that students learn at different levels and stages and set up individual plans to target areas students struggle with. I realize that phonics are taught much differently than they were when I was a child and it is difficult for parents to understand and sometimes difficult for them to help their child learn phonics because of this. That is normal!!! After 4 years of teaching kindergarten and tutoring, I am well equipped to help your child learn phonics and begin/improve their reading skills!

Swimming

I have been on the swim team since I was about 5 years old. I was a lifeguard and swim instructor for 8 years at Sycamore Trails Aquatic Center, and a certified swim instructor for Lifetime fitness in Ohio. I have done private swim lessons for ages from newborn all the way up to adults! Whether you are wanting to learn specifics about a stroke, or simply want water safety techniques, I am here for your needs.

Volleyball

I have played volleyball since I was in fourth grade. I played collegiate volleyball at Heidelberg College in Ohio and have since then coached at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. Since my move to Florida I have also taken on the love of beach volleyball and have played in several tournaments. My knowledge for the game and ability to break down specific skills has been beneficial in my teaching and coaching career.
