About Tracey

I have taught all grades from Pre-K to 12th grade. Tutoring is actually what made me become a teacher! I remember it like it was a yesterday, a 7 year old boy had missed quite a bit of school and then ended up with a severe case of Chicken Pox. By the time he came back to school, he was so far behind that it had been decided he would not pass to the 2nd grade. He had already been held back for 1 year. My friend, the principal, called me to come work with this child as a volunteer. I took my job very seriously! After spending a few weeks with this child, he looked at me with biggest brown eyes and said, "You taught me to read!" He was so excited! That day, I changed my major from Fashion Design and Merchandising to Elementary Education!

I believe all children can succeed; they just need to believe in themselves and have a mentor who believes in them as well!

I have written curriculum to the Common Core Standards when I worked for LEGO Education as their Curriculum Developer.

I have taught all subjects from Pre-K to 6th grade for many years.

I was a Technology Specialist for 8 years, teaching students from 1st grade to 12th grade all MS Office Applications; as well as, photo editing, video editing, & keyboarding.

Please contact me if you are interested in being tutored by me! I am available Monday through Thursday afternoons and early evenings.

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

When I worked for LEGO Education as the Curriculum Developer, all the curriculum I wrote had to be mapped to the Common Core Standards as well as the NCTM, NSTA, NCTE, and ISTE standards.
This was a very large part of my daily work-load.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BS in Elementary Education and I have 20 years teaching experience.

Handwriting

I am qualified to teach handwriting because I was trained to write using both D'Nealian and Zaner-Bloser styles of handwriting. This was a requirement during my college classes.

Macintosh

I am proficient with both Macintosh and PC platforms. At home, I am strictly an Apple user and have a thorough knowledge of how the Apple products interact. I am a self taught computer geek who has taken it upon myself to learn all the in and outs and shortcuts for using Apple products.

Microsoft Excel

I have taught MS Excel and have used it for many years.

Microsoft Windows

I taught all MS Office applications to students 1st-12th grade for 8 years on Windows based PCs.

Microsoft Word

I have taught MS Word for many years and I consider myself an expert on MS Word.

Phonics

I have a degree from Florida State University in Elementary Education and I am certified to teach pre-K through 8th grade in Georgia, including phonics. I have 21 years of teaching experience.
