These experiences have taught me to actively engage students in their learning through discussion, hands on activities and writing, which will lead to academic growth.

I have taught 5th and 6th grade math, as well as basic college math and intermediate algebra at a local university.
I love to read and feel that it is an essential skill for all people. I have taught reading and language arts classes to students of various ability levels.
As a teacher, I have been developing and teaching lessons that are aligned to the common core standards.
My experience in the classroom, understanding of the standards, and passion for teaching students would be beneficial when tutoring students.

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.
I have taught an intermediate algebra 1 class at a local university. While teaching, I worked one on one with several students to help increase their understanding.
I have been working with common core standards since their adoption in Illinois. I use them to plan daily lessons for middle school students. I have taught for the past 15 years and have even helped to align my school district's curriculum.
I have an elementary education (K-8) certificate in Illinois. I also am Nationally Board Certified teacher in English, Language Arts. I have a masters degree in curriculum and instruction.
I have enjoyed teaching math concepts to students as young as third grade all the way through adults going back to school. I find that it is important to understand basic facts and then use hands on activities and repetition to develop the skills necessary to be a successful math student.
I have a passion for reading and I love to share that with students. I have taught Reading classes for the past 15 years. Students should be fluent, strategic readers. I think it is important to teach student strategies to help them comprehend a variety of texts.
