About Heather

Hello! My name is Heather and I am a 2nd grade teacher in Rockford, Illinois. I received by Bachelors from Northern Illinois University, and I have endorsements in Preschool Special Education and ESL. I am currently working on my Masters in Education with an emphasis on technology.
I have worked previously as a Title 1 Tutor for the school I am currently working in. I mostly tutored in reading and math for elementary students. Under this title, I held guided reading groups for students that were above grade level and also tutored in math for students that were below grade level.
I am picking up tutoring in addition to teaching full time in order to help more students. I love the feeling of helping a student understand a concept; I live for that "Ahh ha!" moment. I believe students learn best with hands on activities and connections to the real world. This is how I teach my 2nd graders, and I will carry that over to my tutoring.

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 received my Bachelors from Northern Illinois University, majoring in Early Childhood Education. I hold a Type 04 Certification, which certifies me to teach preschool through 3rd grade, an ESL endorsement, and am currently working on my Masters in Education. I have been a 2nd grade teacher for 3 years in a high poverty school. This teaching position has given me much experience in differentiation, behavior management, building confidence, and teaching to the specific needs of a learner.

Elementary Math

I am currently a 2nd grade teacher. I have a lot of experience with differentiating for student learning, and also finding what strategies work best for a student.
