About Latrice

Since the beginning of the 6th grade, I knew that becoming a teacher was what I wanted my career to be. I devoted my matriculation through undergrad to become the most effective teacher and even got many years of service with the youth in my community. I recently graduated from Union University where I received my Master's degree in Urban Education.

I currently teach 1st grade at a Charter School in Atlanta, GA. Teaching and learning is my passion, so any opportunity that I have to delve deeper into my passion is an opportunity that I won't pass up.

As far as my tutoring methods, I believe that patience and repetition is the key to success. I also believe that learning should be fun. I like to make learning more interesting by incorporating active games with beneficial rewards in conjunction with the ultimate award of understanding a subject and concept. I am a very energetic and bubbly person and I really hope that I am what you are seeking.

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

As a classroom teacher for the last 4 years (in Tennessee, Georgia, and South Carolina), I have been implementing the Common Core standards in the lesson plans I create for my scholars. I am familiar with the Common Core concepts and sites that are aligned with the Common Core standards to improve scholar understanding and improvement in critical thinking. I am very passionate about the way that Common Core requires scholars to not only know the answer, but to be able to explain how they got the answer and how that knowledge can help them to solve future problems.

Elementary (K-6th)

I received my Bachelor's Degree in Child Development for grades K-5 and my Master's Degree in Urban Education for grades K-6. I have experience teaching Kindergarten, 1st grade, and 3rd grade. I also have 7 years of experience tutoring and mentoring grades K-10th.

Elementary Math

I started my career in Education as a Math and Reading tutor for grades K-5. During my residency year as a Kindergarten teacher, I conducted pull out groups to help scholars master basic mathematical concepts. I am certified to teach both Math and Reading Elementary Math for grades K-6. I am currently the Math/Science teacher for my 1st grade scholars and deliver instruction and one-on-one tutoring to help each scholar meet their math goals.

Phonics

I have experience teaching Phonics and Reading Skills in pull-out programs for grades K-5. I also have 7 years of tutoring experience with teaching my students to understand phonics rules in order to learn to read accurately. With teaching Kindergarten, I have the everyday experience of introducing phonics and phonemic awareness so that my students become excellent readers.

Reading

I started my career in Education as a Math and Reading tutor for grades K-5. I worked as a Reading Interventionist for grades K-3 for a year as a part of the City Year Miami Program. Also, my last 3 years of teaching have included 30 minutes daily of Guided Reading instruction to help scholars improve on various reading skills and get them to and beyond their grade level in reading.

Study Skills

I have 7 years of tutoring and mentoring experience for grades K-10th. With this I have been able to teach my students numerous study skills that help them to better understand the material and build confidence when it is time to show what they know. I have many strategies for all subjects that have been proven successful and they cater to all learning types.

She plans each lesson according to their needs. Latrice is soft spoken and my children respond well with her. My plans are to continue throughout the year with Latrice as their classroom teacher introduces new skills, Latric ...
