About Gretchen


Bio

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.

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!

Excellent math tutor!

Gretchen is extremely personable and my son enjoys working with her. She's super knowledgeable in what he's supposed to be learning and being a third grade teacher herself, has been instrumental in helping him gain confidence and knowledge. I highly recommend her!

Prepared and patient tutor

Punctual, prepared & patient. My daughter enjoys her sessions. She actually told me that she likes tutoring with Gretchen! She explores different methods to get my daughter a clearer understanding. I communicate to Gretchen what lessons my daughter is or will be working on and she comes prepared to work. Give Gretchen a chance, she won't disappoint.

Very patient and diligent!

Gretchen is a very nice tutor. She is on-time, prompt and diligent. She also creates a "game plan" for your child. She implements strategies and is very patient with your child. She is responsive and flexible with scheduling. I look forward to seeing the improvements in my son's math and reading skills.
