About Paula

I have taught off and on for the last 30 years. I have also raised 4 kids and managed a store. I make math easy and understandable by using games, easy to remember tips, and concrete examples that students can relate to. My idea of teaching math is for the student to see the value and practical use of what I am teaching and to give them the tools to succeed.

I have worked with students with a range of abilities. I taught 8th grade math for 4 years before moving to a different location. I have also taught 5th grade for 4 years, and have subbed in various districts across the country.
I am currently subbing, so I have a flexible schedule.

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.

Algebra 1

I taught Algebra 1 for 4 years in a public school. I also privately tutored students who were struggling. I use concrete examples to make lessons stick.

Common Core

I have a degree in Elementary Education and Elementary Math. I taught 5th grade for four years and 8th grade Math for four years. I continue to sub in my district where they use Common Core, so I am familiar with it.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a degree in Elementary Education and Elementary Math. I taught 5th grade for four years and am currently subbing in grades K-8. As a sub, I am called on to teach a variety of subjects on a day to day basis.

Homeschool

I taught my child at home during her 6th grade year. I was involved in our area home school group and supervised a family who was being home schooled. I have a degree in Elementary Education and Elementary Math and continue to sub in my district in grades K-8.

Phonics

I have a degree in Elementary Education and taught 5th grade for four years. I am currently a substitute in grade k-8, and often teach phonics as part of the lesson plans left by the teacher.

Prealgebra

I taught 8th grade math for 4 years in a public school. Students of all abilities did well in my class. I use everyday examples to make lessons stick.

Study Skills

As a fifth grade teacher it was important for me to teach my students how to study. I was able to provide them with devices to remember facts and ways to figure things out if the answer didn't come to them right away. I also taught study skills to my own children as they progressed through school.
