About Heather

I am a former teacher and tutor. I left the professional teacher field to be a Stay- at- Home Mom. I want to be able to keep fulfilling my love for teaching and for students on a part-time basis. I have had experience teaching grades Pre-K to 3rd in the classroom. This also includes some Special Education teaching experience. I have over a year of tutoring experience from Huntington Learning Center. While working there, I tutored students from 3 years old to Seniors in High School. I tutored students in Math, Reading, Writing, Study Skills, SAT and ACT test Prep.

I have a degree in Early Childhood Education. I have always wanted to work with children as a teacher or a tutor since I was very young. It brings me such joy to see a student learn something new or when they finally grasp a concept they have been working so hard to figure out. I love tutoring because it allows me to work with a variety of children and a variety of subjects. It allows me to pass on techniques I have learned over the years. There is also great joy and pride felt when helping a student reach their greatest potential and learning something that at one point was difficult. Most of all tutoring allows me to work on what I have always felt as my teaching philosophy: Every child can learn and it is my job to help each child learn based on his or her needs.
I am willing to work with you and help you achieve all that you desire to achieve.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

American History

I attended Hood College and majored in History as well as Early Childhood Education. My concentration area was American History. I also took AP American History in high school. I did so well on the exam that I received College credits from my college. It has always been a passion of mine and one I love to share with others.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor in this area because I have a degree in Early Childhood Education. I also have experience tutoring all age groups in all subjects for over a year. This experience came from Huntington Learning Centers. I was also a classroom teacher for grade Pre-K to 3rd Grade.

Elementary Math

I have previously tutored Elementary Math for a year with Huntington Learning Center in Maryland. I also have had experience teaching Elementary Math as a classroom teacher for Pre-K to 3rd grade.

Phonics

I have taught pre-K3 to 3rd grade in the classroom. During my 8+ years of teaching in the classroom, Phonics was major part of the curriculum. For 4 of those years, I taught Kindergarten, in which Phonics is a core piece of the curriculum.

Reading

I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and I am certified in grades Pre-K through 3rd. In teaching these age groups, I have had to teach all the building blocks of reading and helping children who may struggle with them. I also have experience tutoring reading skills for all Grade Levels from Huntington Learning Center. I also tutored in SAT Reading while there.

Social Studies

I majored in History in College as well as Early Childhood Education. I have taught Social Studies to Kindergartners, 3rd Graders, and students at Huntington Learning Center. It is a passion of mine and one that I have done a lot of personal research on.
