About Misty

Hello! My name is Misty and I would love to help your child gain confidence and achieve higher grades in school! I am a former 4th grade teacher for 3 years before becoming a stay-at-home mom to my wonderful son. During the time I taught, I also did one-on-one and group tutoring for students with various needs. I have taught all elementary subjects and specialize in reading and writing.

I love tutoring because it allows me to work with the student at their unique level and foster a learning experience that meets their exact needs. I am willing to come to your home and tutor as well as offer online tutoring for those who would prefer a different method. I am committed to helping children reach their full potential in school and get the most out of their education while helping them grow a love for learning. Contact me for more information or to schedule your first tutoring session today!

I have always loved teaching math. I have found that with the introduction of common core math can be especially frustrating and challenging for students as well as parents trying to help. My knowledge of common core expectations allows me to help your child get the correct answers and gain an understanding of how they came to those conclusions.

During my last year as a 4th grade teacher, I taught reading and writing exclusively to multiple classrooms. I have experience with ESOL students and have been trained in strategies to help them succeed in reading and writing. I have also worked with struggling readers, non-readers, and advanced readers. I can provide a personalized plan to help your child move forward in reading and increase their comprehension and reading speed.

I have training and knowledge of the curriculum for students in the K-6 grades and am adaptable to work with kids in any subject within these grade levels.

I would love to hear from you and help you identify your child's specific needs so that we can together help them succeed in school and become more confident in their education!

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.

Common Core

During the years that I taught within the classroom I utilized multiple strategies to teach common core methodology. I have taught common core math, reading, and writing as well as have taken continuing education courses on common core methodology. I have access to many common core resources to be able to help students achieve success using the common core methodology.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently hold a temporary certificate in the state of Florida for elementary k-6 while I await my permanent certificate. I have passed the elementary k-6 subject area exam in the state of Florida and I have taught 4th grade for 3 years. I also have experience tutoring ESOL and ESE students ranging in grade level.

Handwriting

During my three years of teaching I worked with students of varying levels. Due to the handwritten essay process I worked strategically with students to improve the legibility of their handwriting. I utilize large lined paper to college rule paper depending on students current handwriting and work on letter building, sizing, and spacing. I have taught one full year of cursive writing as well as two, half-years of cursive writing and two, half-years of print.

Homeschool

I have experience working with multiple curriculums that include ABEKA, Bob Jones, and Wonders that are typically used by homeschooling parents. I am able to meet the schedule of homeschooling students to be available during their education hours to ensure that I can assist them in their subjects. I am able to adapt my tutoring methods to meet the curriculum that the student is using to ensure they are successful.

Reading

I have experience tutoring one-on-one and in group settings for FSA reading. I have 3 years experience specifically teaching reading in the 4th grade.

Study Skills

As a teacher I have helped many students learn the study skills they need to succeed. I have experience teaching the use of flashcards to aid in learning as well as teaching students how to take notes using methods such as outlines, cornell notes, and mapping. I also have experience helping students break down tasks to create a more manageable segments as well as how to improve their time management.
