About Thomasa

I was born in Ft. Leonardwood, MO, on September 12, 1966. I graduated from Nazareth College of Rochester in 1996 with a Masters Degree in General Education/Early Childhood Education. I taught second for two years in Rochester, NY before relocating to Atlanta, GA where I taught second, third, and fourth grades for sixteen years. During my years as a classroom teacher, I've had the opportunity to see my students grow academically, creatively, and socially. I've had the chance to help build their confidence and believe in themselves, therefore improving in various academic areas where they never thought they could.

During my teaching career I have had students who were afraid of math. They had a fear of numbers and word problems and other concepts, therefore motivation to learn became almost nonexistent. To ease their minds, I came up with creative ways to teach math (games, many hands-on activities, stories involving math, role-playing, real life connections, discussions).

Learning Reading and Grammar concepts were difficult for some of my students and the traditional text book method wasn't always helpful. Therefore, I used a variety of strategies including small group activities, think-pair-share activities, videos, games, interactive power points, and daily practice.

My students and I enjoyed phonics. Some effective strategies I used to teach phonics were our alphabet chant, games, rhyming poems, and daily practice.

My goals for each tutoring session is to help my students gain more confidence and increase their motivation so that they can improve and succeed in school.

I am available for tutoring Monday-Friday from 4pm to 6:30pm and Saturdays from 9am to 12pm. My base rate is $30/hour and I offer discount packages. Contact me for details.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
