About Tammy

I believe every child has the ability to do well given the right support. My experiences in the classroom and tutoring have been rewarding and exciting. When I see a child start to feel more confident in his or her abilities and start to do better in school because of it, it is a great feeling! I have been teaching for 17 years in both public and private schools. I have a Masters of Education in elementary education and am certified to teach English grades 5-9 and all subjects in grades K-6 in the State of Florida. I have taught in the state of Florida for 17 years including second, fourth, sixth, and eighth grades. I have previously been a CRISS trainer, English department chair, math Olympiads coach, and writing coordinator in my teaching experiences. I enjoy tutoring because it gives me the chance to get to know students better while allowing me to continue to develop interesting and fun lessons which I enjoyed doing in the classroom.

I specialize in any subject in elementary or middle school with a special emphasis on reading,writing, grammar, and spelling. My former students have averaged an 8 stanine on achievement testing. I try to challenge my students while instilling confidence in the subject I am teaching. I also emphasize logical thinking through higher order questioning strategies which I believe leads to higher test scores.

I have a flexible schedule and will try to rearrange times when necessary, however I do ask for a 24 hour notice for cancellation.

I typically tutor in my house or public library but will travel if necessary. I look forward to meeting you and helping your child excel in his or her studies.

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.
