About Grace


Bio

Hi, my name is Grace I was born and raised in La Grange. In third grade I decided to be a teacher and ever since then I have volunteered to work after school programs, and do everything I could do to reach my goal to become the best teacher I could be. I received my bachelors in Education from Holy Cross College, right across from Notre Dame (Go Irish!)

Hi, my name is Grace I was born and raised in La Grange. In third grade I decided to be a teacher and ever since then I have volunteered to work after school programs, and do everything I could do to reach my goal to become the best teacher I could be. I received my bachelors in Education from Holy Cross College, right across from Notre Dame (Go Irish!) I graduated in 2010 and from there I began teaching 4th grade in a parochial school on the south side of the city. After about a year of teaching I decided to go and earn my Masters degree in Reading from Olivet Nazarene University. I am currently a 4th grade teacher with the Chicago Public School.
I have always loved tutoring students in 1:1 or small group settings, my absolute favorite part about teaching is the actual teaching part, where I am able to help students find the light switch and turn it on! Tutoring helps students build a report with teachers and will help develop their learning style. I hope that I will be able to help your child become the shining star we know they all are!
Please contact me if you want to know more about me, or set up a time to meet and chat. I am extremely flexible and have reliable transportation.
