About Cassandra

I enjoy working with youth of all ages. I have worked as a paraprofessional in an elementary school in Lakeland School District since 2003. I have operated and supervised students in an after school Homework Club Program of 1st-6th grade students since 2009. I have taught Extended School Year (ESY) for two summers through the same elementary school that I am employed. I have been tutoring since 2009. I have tutored middle school and high school age students whom are below grade level (without disabilities) within academic subjects of Reading, English, and Mathematics. These students have achieved advancing grade levels or movement in ISAT result levels over a summer. I am currently employed with Lakeland School District, working as a third grade teacher at John Brown Elementary and seeking my Masters in Special Education.

I am also a 4-H leader and have been working with children ages 5-19 in both animal and building projects for 18 years. I owned and operated a preschool and childcare in Spirit Lake for 4 years (1998-2001).

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.
