About Emily

I believe my experiences in a wide range of settings will allow me to adapt to tutoring a wide range of students. I currently work as a Special Education teacher with third and fourth grade students. I have students with learning disabilities, ADD/ADHD, anxiety, and speech/language disabilities. I am able to find resources that are catered to each individual child's areas of need. I have a great deal of patience and understand that children work at their own pace. They need to be supported, guided, and encouraged in order to be successful in school. I provide the motivation and encouragement that children need in order to make improvements in their schoolwork.

I have seen firsthand how one on one instruction allows children to move at their own pace which really helps them to be more successful in truly understanding the material. As a Special Education teacher, I understand that some students truly benefit from individualized instruction. I will always be fully committed to ensuring that the students I am tutoring are making continual progress.

I believe that collaboration and communication are vital skills to have when helping children to succeed. It is essential that instructors maintain an open line of communication with parents, because parents play a huge role in their child’s life. As a tutor, I always make sure to provide parents with frequent updates about their child’s progress.

I believe that my teaching experience, committed work ethic, and my strong communication skills will be great assets to tutoring your child. I have a flexible schedule, and I am willing to travel. Thank you for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I have two years of clinical experience and student teaching experience working with students who have ADD and ADHD. I have taught math, reading, spelling, writing, and study skills to students with ADD and ADHD. I have taught fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students with ADD/ADHD in an inclusive setting and in a self-contained setting.

Autism

I have four years of experience working with students who have autism in a variety of settings. I have taught math, reading, spelling, writing, and study skills to students with autism. For the past four summers, I have worked with children with autism. I supported them by encouraging social interaction with their peers and by providing needed sensory breaks. I have taught fourth, fifth, and sixth grade students with autism in inclusive settings and in a self-contained setting.

Common Core

I currently teach third- and fourth-grade students. The curriculum I use is aligned to the Common Core standards. I work to bridge the gap between where students are currently performing and get them to perform up the high standards. Students need to practice critical thinking skills in all subject areas. I encourage students to justify their answers. When students are able to justify their answers, they will be more successful on standardized testing. With writing and reading, students need to be able to cite specific evidence that relates to the question. I use highlighters with students so that they are able to go back into the text to find their answer.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently work as a teacher in an elementary school with third and fourth graders. Last year I worked in a fifth grade classroom. I teach Common Core Math and Language Arts. I am familiar with the Common Core Standards. The standards build on each other from year to year. It is important that students practice the essential skills so they can continue to improve each year.

Elementary Math

I currently teach fourth grade math using the My Math curriculum which is based on the Common Core standards. I have taught students who struggle with math. I break down challenging problems into parts so that students understand how to do the problem. I have access to a wide variety of resources that will allow a student to practice with the skills that they need to work on. I encourage students so that they feel successful and not frustrated by math. I build upon the knowledge that they have so that they experience success while they are gaining knowledge.

Reading

I currently work with students with learning disabilities in the area of reading. I have experience improving students' fluency, decoding, and comprehension.

Special Needs

I have been working with children with special needs for 8 years. I currently work as an elementary special education teacher. I have experience with the following disabilities: Autism, ADD/ADHD, Developmental Delays, Specific Learning disabilities, Intellectual Disabilities, Anxiety, Speech/Language Impairments, and Behavior disorders. I create individualized instruction based on what the child needs. I incorporate their interests into instruction so that they are motivated to learn. I am understanding of the effect that disability has on a child. I am willing to be patient with any behaviors or reluctance to learn. I have a great deal of strategies that I am able to implement with students based on their needs. Each child learns differently so I make sure to find the way that a child learns best.

Spelling

I currently teach a spelling group to fourth grade students. I have access to a program called Spelling City that provides a wide variety of engaging activities for students to practice their spelling words. I am able to input words and assign students to complete the activities that allow them to work on the skills they need to practice. Practicing common letter patterns within words allows students to learn patterns, therefore learning how to spell numerous words.

Study Skills

I currently teach third- and fourth-grade students. I know the study skill strategies that work for students who have a hard time staying organized and focused on their school work. I will help students find the specific strategy that works best for them. I have experience working with students who need organizational support in the classroom. Breaking down, or chunking information is typically helpful for students to understand what they are reading. Things like sticky notes, highlighters, graphic organizers, and outlines help students to organize the information they are reading so that it is meaningful. I have found that students are more engaged when they are able to use technology to help them with their school assignments and organization. I have access to numerous apps that will help students stay organized and on track to being successful students.
