About Courtney

In 2007, I graduated from Eastern Illinois University with a Bachelor of Science in Education. Most recently, I earned my Middle School endorsement from Lewis University and am endorsed in English/Language Arts and Social Science. My experiences at Eastern Illinois University, as well as my professional experiences, have given me the opportunity to teach children in grades 1-5. For the past 5 years, I have taught 5th grade, and I have also taught at my district's summer intervention program each year. Prior to my teaching experience, I was a paraprofessional for special education students. These experiences have allowed me to gain insight into many different grade levels and student abilities.

What I enjoy most about tutoring is having the opportunity to focus on one student at a time. Each child has a unique personality and learning style, so I enjoy getting to know the student on a personal level in order to fully meet his/her needs. I like being able to use a student's interests in order to find instructional materials that will motivate and engage the student.

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

The district I currently work for has been implementing Common Core Standards for the past 3 years. I am well versed in the requirements and changes the Common Core brings. The Summer Intervention program in my district is heavily reliant on using Common Core Standards to evaluate student growth throughout the program.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently in my 5th year of teaching 5th grade in an elementary building. Through my college coursework and professional positions, I have experience teaching grades 1-5. I also have my middle school endorsement in grades 5-8.

Elementary Math

I am in my 5th year of teaching 5th grade, which builds upon the primary grades' math skills. I have taught summer intervention for 4 years, in which I learned new strategies in order to help struggling learners. I have also attended seminars taught by Greg Tang.
