St. Petersburg College (Elementary Education)
I have 6 years of teaching experience in all subject areas as well as experience as a reading tutor. I am a certified teacher endorsed in reading who enjoys working with elementary students in small groups or one on one in a creative, hands-on teaching approach to ensure a solid understanding of the subjects being taught. If one teaching method does not work for you, I will continue to work until I find a way that works. I was homeschooled for elementary school so I understand the structure of independent learning and the importance of education based on the student's skills and interests.
Tutoring allows me to create a teaching style that fits each student based on their needs, skills and, interests. Tutoring presents a freedom that a traditional classroom does not. As a tutor, I am able to focus on increasing the skills and knowledge of the student in a fun and interesting way that may allow the student to see a subject or concept in a new way.
In teaching elementary math, I will use a hands-on approach that will allow the students to see the math concepts visually instead of just numbers on a page. Students will be shown ways to create their own tools that they can use in their classroom.
I have been through specific training in my Bachelors of Education degree program on new and creative ways to identify and improve reading skills all the way from the beginning reading stages of learning the alphabet to the more advanced stages or reading strategies and understanding what is being read. I was also a summer reading tutor with the United Way, seeing major gains in student reading levels over 6 weeks.
I am a certified Elementary Education teacher with a creative mind that enjoys thinking out of the box as well as doing hands-on projects and not just on work sheets. I was a homeschool student and I feel that has given me the ability to think outside the box and find different yet helpful ways to approach learning and teaching.

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 received my Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education K-6 in July of 2016. I graduated from St. Petersburg College Education program, which requires internships in Elementary classrooms. I passed all of my teacher certification tests in May of 2016.
