I am a 1st grade teacher, who has experience in using the new Common Core Standards. I have 2 years of first grade experience and 2 years of third grade experience.
I look for the best way for my students to learn and I make the necessary changes in the traditional setting to meet the needs of my students. Some examples are: using magnetic letters to complete a spelling test instead of paper and pencil, using flash cards and counter for a timed math fact drill instead of paper and pencil. I have used flash cards in dolch word memorization (common words in literature) and use dolch word phrases in building oral reading fluency. Oral reading fluency is key to becoming a reader. I also use short reading passages to teach reading comprehension strategies, focusing on looking back in the passage to locate answers.
I like to use different math strategies to help with math. The use of manipulatives (counters, foam blocks, connecting cubes, etc.) is very important to me when teaching math.
For writing instruction, I use creative ways in getting students to express themselves. With writing instruction, I've found that gentle corrections go a long ways. Slow and steady work will improve the writing process. I am a 1st grade teacher, who has experience in using the new Common Core Standards.

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 am a certified teacher in the state of Florida. I hold a current Professional Educators Certificate and will provide a copy of the certificate upon request. I have also been a classroom teacher for 2 years in 3rd grade and 2 years in 1st grade. I have data from a 3rd and 1st grade classroom that I can provide. Identifying student information has been removed from the data sheets.
