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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher librarian that has taught for 26 years in Pennsylvania and Iowa. I have taught Kindergarten, second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth grades and am an instructor in the Summer program in Davenport. I have extensive training in interventions for children, as well as motivating activities that will make the child want to work on the material.
I have a Master's Degree in Elementary Education from Marycrest College in Davenport and a Master of Science in Library Science from the University of Iowa, Iowa City.

Elementary Math

I have taught every grade of elementary school K-6, and as a current teacher librarian, I have had the opportunity to use new technological tools to aid understanding. I also have taught math in the Davenport Community Schools summer program for several years, and tutor students after school in the district as well. I look forward to speaking with you so I can help your child be successful in mathematics.

Prealgebra

I have certification in all Elementary subjects, including Elementary Math and PreAlgebra. I am celebrating my 27th year of teaching next year, and really enjoy using technology as a tool to helping students achieve their goals! I look forward to helping you as
