About Erin

I am a certified K-9th grade teacher, and I have more than 7 years of teaching experience. I am married, and I have a son who is just over one year old. I love helping students succeed, and I will design a personalized curriculum for you in order to help you do just that!

I live in Byron, but I'm willing to travel to meet the needs of my students.

While I'm certified for K-9th grade classrooms, and my major was elementary education, I have always had a love of reading and writing. In fact, I began college as an English major! Reading is a skill that opens doors, and without a solid foundation in reading, we can't succeed in life. I've taught reading and writing at nearly every grade level, so I know what you need to know AND how to get you there!

Please contact me with any questions or to schedule a session! I look forward to hearing from you!

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

I have a current teaching license for K-9th grade. When I was a classroom teacher, my school had adopted common core. I taught common core standards for 3-4 years. (It was not fully adopted at first.)

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a current teaching license for K-9th grade. I have continued my own education to include middle school methods courses and additional special education courses. I was a classroom teacher for 4 years for 3rd and 5th grade, and I have 3 years of prekindergarten experience, as well as holding many substitute positions in all grades.

Handwriting

As part of my undergraduate course work, I had to submit handwriting samples. I take pride in my penmanship, and I enjoy working with students to improve theirs--I have a current teaching license for K-9th grade.

Phonics

I have experience teaching phonics as well as teaching others how to teach phonics. I currently work as a Literacy Coordinator, and part of my job is training volunteer tutors in phonics and the best ways to teach phonics. I have a current teaching license for K-9th grade.

Study Skills

Study skills are important for all students. As a teacher, I spent a great deal of time preparing my students for the tests they were expected to take- not just the content, but understanding how to take a test without feeling anxiety. I have a lot of tips and tricks that students can use. And I have a current teaching license for K-9th grade.
