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 had extensive training in the implementation of Common Core State Standards in an elementary classroom setting and have been creating lesson plans while implementing the standards within my classroom for the past three years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching for the past 16 years. I have taught first, second and third grades and currently teach first grade for CPS.

Reading

I have been teaching first and second grade students how to read for 16 years. I use data from DIBELS, TRC and teacher observations to plan and implement lessons. I differentiate my lessons to best meet the needs of my students and provide instruction in flexible small groups. I have used LLI, Direct Instruction and currently use the Common Core State Standards as the foundation for my Reading program.

Writing

I have been teaching Writing to elementary students for 16 years. I have received extensive training in the implementation of Lucy Calkins' Writer's Workshop and my students are engaged in Writer's Workshop daily. I also provide many opportunities for my students to write in all core subject units of study.
