About Emily

I am currently a 4th grade teacher in a Charter school on the west side of Chicago. I have taught every grade except Kindergarten in the past 5 years. I joined and completed Teach For America as a 2014 corp member and have stayed in the classroom. I enjoy breaking down difficult objectives to make them easier to understand for students. The most rewarding feeling is when a student is able to explain why they completed an answer in the correct way. In my past years of teaching, I have had 96% of my students meet their test goals with 45% of them growing more than 2 grade levels.

I am motivated to students success, and will do what it takes to make sure your child succeeds. When I was younger, I was a struggling student and had some wonderful teachers along the way that did what they needed to help me succeed. Now I believe it is my turn to do the same.

I am currently a 4th grade math teacher. I have experience with teaching geometry using manipulatives. I have my own set of geometric shapes and fun ways to remember different geometry vocabulary.

For the past 3 years, I have used Common Core curriculum. I have designed my own Tier 2 and Tier 3 intervention curriculum for a school in St. Louis. I know the vocabulary they use and how to ask questions to push students thinking and love of learning.

I have taught every grade except for Kindergarten. I have helped my students grow to meet their state test goals and exceed them.

This is my 5th year teaching and I am still as passionate about it as I was on the first day of my first year. I am dedicated and motivated to help all students succeed. I will do everything in my power to make our sessions fun and engaging.

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

Since the Common Core was released in 2013, the schools I have taught my curriculum aligned to the Common Core standards. Before the beginning of the school year, I broke down all of the standards my class would be using to help backwards plan my units for students success. I am confident using the Common Core and know how to differentiated based on the objectives and student needs.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated with my degree in Elementary Education (K-6). I am currently getting my masters from Johns Hopkins in Elementary Education. This is my 5th year as a teacher and I have taught every grade except for Kindergarten.

Handwriting

I have experience teaching Handwriting Without Tears. I believe that handwriting is a very important skill for students to have. I have worked as a tutor to help students with their fine motor skill such as how to hold and pencil and how to form letters the correct way.
