Florida Atlantic University (Elementary Education)
Hello. I am a 24 year old kindergarten teacher for Palm beach county. I graduated last year from FAU with my BAE in elementary education. With this school year coming to close I am looking to tutor over the summer. I am certified in K-5 but feel the most efficient working with grades K-2. I am open to creating a steady schedule as well as tutoring sessions on an as needed basis. I have transportation and open availability beginning June 15.
I currently teach kindergarten and have a lot of experience and resources to help with teaching number recognition, addition and subtraction, shapes, word problems, etc.
I have experience teaching and working with students from the time they are just beginning to write to the time they reach fifth grade. I work with students on understanding nouns, verbs, adjectives, etc.
I have a year of full time teaching in my own classroom as well as hundreds of hours of field placements and student teaching in the elementary classroom environment. In teaching kindergarten I have had to work with children who do not even know how to write. Using a lot of modeling, practice, and self checking techniques I have made them into better writers. When it comes to elementary subjects such as science and social studies, I am very hands on and try to apply that in my lessons. It is easier for students to grasp when they are physically creating their own learning. I use a lot of manipulative and also have videos and pictures that are used to help my visual learners.
I work in a predominantly Spanish speaking school with a lot of students who come to kindergarten not even knowing how to spell their name. I have used a program to help students master their upper and lowercase letters, as well as letter sounds and sight word help, blending and segmenting sounds and creating sentences, etc.
I am very flexible with my scheduling and very passionate about my job. Tutoring allows me to be a teacher to students outside of my classroom. I will always try my best and use all tools and strategies I know to ensure success of my students. Please contact me if interested. Hello.

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.
