About Gretchen

Hello,

My name is Gretchen. I have been an elementary school teacher for the past three years. I have taught 2nd grade for two years, and this year, I am teaching third grade. I absolutely love teaching Math and Science. I prefer to use hands-on activities with my students. For example, I had my students create arrays with candy corn and solve division word problems with counters. I also love to read. I particularly love to do novel studies with my students.

I am excited to get to know students on a more personal level through tutoring. I enjoy hearing about their personal likes and dislikes so that I can tailor my lessons to fit their interests.

I have taken several courses on teaching literacy to elementary age students. I have been teaching grammar and reading to students for the past three years.

I am a certified elementary education teacher (K-8th grades). I have taken several courses on teaching Mathematics to elementary age students. I am in a self-contained classroom, meaning that I teach all subjects. I have had experience teaching these subject for the past three years.

I am excited to meet you! Please feel free to message me so that we can set up a time to work together!

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.
