About Stephanie

I have been teaching for almost 20 years. I've taught grades 2nd-6th. Most of my time has been spent teaching 3rd grade. I especially enjoy teaching Reading and Writing because I'm good at it. The key to teaching reading is developing a student's comprehension strategies. I find that students who have difficulty with reading don't know what to do when their comprehension breaks down. I can help.

I also love to write. While creative writing is my specialty, I have taught informative and persuasive or argument writing. I like to tell my students to assume that their audience knows nothing about the subject they are writing about. This means that students have to write so that readers can follow their thinking. I also like to tell my students that when writing, more is better. Lastly, students who find writing difficult may need additional support in the mechanics of writing-- paragraph form, structure, sentence structure, etc. Writing can be fun when students have the tools.

I have experience in teaching several grades, 2nd-6th, which allows me to strengthen students' deficits, and prepare them for future grades.

Let me show you that you can and will succeed. I am available weekends. I am also available M-F during the summer, starting June 8, 2015. Bring your Summer Reading and/or Summer Homework Packets, too.

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 qualified to teach Grammar, Reading, and Vocabulary because I have taught these subjects successfully throughout my 20 year tenure as an educator. I have taught grades 2nd-6th, in public as well as private schools. As a result of my depth of knowledge and experience, I have increased student motivation, confidence, and standardized test scores. Currently, I am a Reading, Language Arts, and Writing teacher at a very prestigious private school on Chicago's west side.
