About Sandra

Thanks for viewing my profile. I am a certified elementary school teacher. I am registered with Peoria County and Tazewell County Regional Office of Education. My background check is on file.

I currently work for District 150 as a 1st Grade Teacher. I used to teach Reading Intervention at district. The past three years I have tutored after school as NCLB coordinator in reading with small groups K-8. My students I worked with range from kindergarten through eighth grade. My middle school endorsements are social studies and language arts.

I have worked with students for 24 years. For twenty-two years I worked with preschool children. My work also includes working with special needs children including children with ADD and ADHD and Fragile X. I am an avid tennis player and have coached baseball and basketball teams at local clubs. I have also served on the school board. My experience not only comes from classes but from real life experiences.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher in the state of Illinois. I have a degree in Elementary Education. I also have an endorsement in social studies and language art in middle school. I currently work as a Reading Interventionist for District 150. My classes are small with an average of four to six students. My students range from kindergarten to eighth grade. I am registered at the Regional Office of Education in Tazewell and Peoria County.

Phonics

I taught reading interventions for three years for students kindergarten through 8th. We taught with a program called 95%. It was all about phonological awareness. We also taught Heggerty, which is another program for teaching phonological awareness. There is a test that we used to see what level the student was at for the 95%. For example, first level is sounds, next is nonsense words and it continues with cvc and long vowels, etc.
