About Ruth

I am an elementary school teacher with great student results. Working with children in the teaching capacity has been a passion since I was young. I have a family of educators that I have learned a great deal from. Today we see many changes in curriculum and I do my very best to stay on top of the latest technologies and programs that will help student achievement. Recently I received a letter from the state acknowledging that I am amongst the highest impact teachers in Florida based on student scores the past three years. This is based on reading, math, and science scores.

I am qualified to teach and tutor elementary math because I have specialized in elementary math for 5 years. Well aware of the Common Core standards/Florida standards and I am able to effectively teach the skills.

I have taught English Language Learners reading as well as proficient readers. All of my students have made tremendous gains each year. Have also studied the common core standards or Florida standards.

I have researched the common core standards which are very similar to the Florida Standards (that I also know). I have been to multiple curriculum training's for reading, writing, and math to help add to my knowledge.

I am highly qualified elementary education teacher. Have received a rating of highly effective yearly based on student scores. Along with reading, writing, and math I also teach elementary science.

If you would like further details I am more than willing to provide it for you. Including data from my previous years of teaching. My schedule can hopefully fit around yours and I can help you achieve your academic goals.

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.

Basketball

I am qualified to teach the game of basketball because I have played all through high school. Leading scorer in Broward County in 2006. Played Junior National Ball representing the state of Florida. Played my first year of college at Lynn University and coached at a High School in Palm Beach County. I know the fundamentals of basketball and can teach others as well.

Common Core

I an elementary teacher who teach to these standards daily. It is important for instructional purposes that I am knowledgeable in these standards. I have materials that are also aligned to the common core to use for tutorial as well as computer programs to teach the variety of methods for math skills.

Elementary (K-6th)

My degree from college is in Elementary Education K-6. My teaching certification also with an ESOL/ESE Endorsement.

Elementary Math

I have taught math for 6 years and I am currently in my 7th year. I have lots of knowledge with the current standards from 3rd to 5th grade math along with materials to support each skill.

Study Skills

Growing up it was a challenge to study for assessments effectively. Once I got to college I begin using different strategies to help me study content and it worked. Now I impart those same skills and strategies in my 5th grade classroom and it produces great results in reading, math, and science.

Great teacher, very knowledgable, and patient.

Ruth was very knowledgable and patient, explained everything in a way my daughter could understand. After just one lesson my daughter feels like she understands much better, and can't wait to meet with Ruth again.
