About Lydia

Because I have a love for teaching, I also love teaching children to love learning. I have taught Elementary Education for 4 years, particularly Reading, Reading Intervention, Math, Science, and Social Studies. I have experience working with children who are on or above grade level, as well as students with IEPs or in need of support to feel more confident in their learning. I believe that all students should learn on a level that challenges them, but does not overwhelm them, disengage them, or discourage them from learning. Ultimately, I enjoy tutoring because tutoring provides children with an individualized lesson that is unique to their learning style and is a lot more focused to meet the needs of that particular child.

I have taught common core math to grades 3-6 and was responsible for and successful at pushing the growth of students who were both struggling learners to students who were accelerated in their learning.

I have taught common core reading comprehension integrated into Science and Social Studies, ELA, and reading intervention to 3-8th graders. These students grew exceptionally.

I am very familiar with the standards that are required to teach for common core ELA and Math for grades 3-6; and these standards are heavily aligned to elementary education assessments in most public schools. Also, I have taught test taking strategies in conjunction with teaching common core standards and have had great success.
I have also worked in a facility and tutored around GED preparation for Reading and Math.

I am familiar with the NGSS standards that is associated with teaching science. I have also coordinated several school- wide science fairs, so I am capable of tutoring science skills, but also providing children with the hands on explorative knowledge that is needed to connect learning for science.

I am available for tutoring everyday between 6pm and 9pm, Monday's through Thursdays. I am also available on Saturdays and Sundays between 10am and 2pm.

I look forward to assisting you in your studies!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 taught common core for the last 4 years to grades 1-8. Students in my classrooms have grown in double digits through my instruction on NWEA assessment, which is heavy with common core questioning and use of common core strategies. My intervention and enrichment lessons are based on common core state standards, so even my struggling students and high achieving students grow.

Elementary Science

I have taught 2 years of elementary science and was the science fair coordinator for the school I currently teach at for 2 years, as well; ensuring all projects were grade level appropriate, and supported teachers around the science fair. I am familiar with STEM and the need to imbed core subjects into science.

GED

I was a GED tutor for one year in both reading and math, in which I developed my own curriculum. I had 100% success rate with adult learners on the GED test.

Reading

I have taught ELA/Reading to K-8 grades, through intervention, on grade level, and enrichment for 4 years. I specialize in increasing students test scores, by teaching them test taking skills while being tutored, as well as gain a love for reading.
