Park University (Elementary Education)
I am a magna cum laude Park University graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education. I taught at the elementary level in Topeka, KS, before following my husband to FL for his career. I am enthusiastic about teaching and have a strong desire to ensure every child I work with has an opportunity to learn and grow academically, as well as build their level of confidence.
Throughout my time teaching in KS, I was able to apply my knowledge about a variety of strategies for reading and math remediation when working with individual students, as well as whole groups of students. Using guided reading and guided math allowed me to focus on individual student needs, and that allowed me to help struggling learners become proficient learners. In order to help struggling learners become proficient, I use student driven data to create lessons that engage students in meaningful learning.
At the beginning of the 2014-2015 school year, 42% of my students were proficient readers. Through the use of differentiation, one-on-one time, and small group activities, the number of proficient readers in my classroom grew to 76% by the end of the year. Students who didn't want to read at the beginning of the year were eager to read by the end of the year.
I've taught at the elementary level and am familiar with Common Core Standards, as well as effective learning strategies for students K-6th.
I look forward to hearing from you and helping your child achieve academic success. I am a magna cum laude Park University graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education.

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.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education. I have a K-6 teaching license in KS, and a K-5 teaching license in MO. I have taught at the elementary level.
