About Holly

I have tutored students many years either after school or during the summer month. I enjoy working with students; helping them gain knowledge and feel more confident about themselves. I enjoy reading and language arts activities and love to hear about your interests and hobbies.

I have tutored kindergarteners as well as grades 1-6. I will try to come up with some exciting and fun learning ideas for your child to make tutoring fun and not boring. I can answer your questions as well as suggest ideas that you can use at home to help your child do his or her best.

I have taught both Common Core standards as well as the previous standards. I can access the state's website to check what needs to be accomplished at any time.

I have taught grades K thru 3rd grade for twenty years. I love reading and language arts activities as well as social studies and science.

I have taught Kindergarten for 7 years and have worked with Phonics in all aspects of reading. Most of my tutoring has been phonics as this is the basis for a students knowledge as they progress.

I am easily available on weekends and during the day if you are homeschooled. I can also tutor in the evenings after 6:30 pm. I am willing to come to any public place; such as the library to tutor. Please let me know when I can be a service to your child.

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

I have worked tutoring for many years and have the standards at my side most of the time. Schools depend on data and knowledge of the standards so the children will accomplish what is needed for that year. I actually have the Common Core in an app on my phone for referral.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored for NISEC in grades K-6 grades for two years. I also am a title one tutor for the city of Hammond. Previously, I was a title one aide for West Gary Lighthouse Charter School for two years.

Handwriting

Even though I am left handed, I have been taught by Catholic School sisters that insisted that you learn the Palmer Method. I am able to write without writing backhand as many lefties do. I have taught handwriting in kindergarten and cursive in grade 3 for many years.

Phonics

I have tutored for NISEC for two years and currently am a title one tutor for the School City of Hammond. I also have taught kindergarten for 7 years and preschool for 10 years.

Study Skills

I have worked with students that are getting ready for the state-wide testing for many years. I have been a title one aide for a few years, as well as a tutor after school through the NISEC organization.
