About Ayana

I am an experienced teacher who has taught in the Philadelphia School District for 17 years. I resigned from the district last year to move to Kansas with my husband and 3 year old son. We live in Lawrence and love living here. I have my administrator certification and hope to get a position as an Elementary School principal within the next year.

Within my experience as a teacher, I tutored a 4th grader in Reading and a 2nd grader in Math. As teacher, I followed and implemented the core curriculum. I taught grades 1st through 6th within my 17 years of being an educator. I am familiar with teaching, what I would call "new math", which promotes critical thinking and problem solving on an ongoing basis. I understand the frustration that parents feel when they are exposed to the math curriculum in particular. I think I am qualified as a tutor specifically on elementary school level. I am willing and look forward to sharing my knowledge and skills with both the student and the parent in order to help the student to continue to excel.

I have taught elementary school math or have been exposed to it for 17 years. I have a clear understanding of how to teach it and reach success. I also have strategies that help make learning fun and achievable for students.

I have taught elementary school language arts or have been exposed to it for 17 years. I have a clear understanding of how to teach it and reach success. I also have strategies that help make learning fun and achievable for students.

I know the Common Core and the expectations and the structure of it. I also know the within the Common Core the skills stay the same in most cases but the level of expectations will be different according to the grade level.

I have experience with being a private tutor and have tutored many students within the classroom. I have a love for teaching and enjoy seeing the light shine in my students when they have mastered a concept or achieved success in something. As a tutor/teacher it is my goal to make the student feel successful with every experience they have with me.

I am passionate teacher who hopes to make your learning experience fun and exciting.

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

As a teacher, a mentor and supervisor to teachers and coaches, feel like I am highly qualified to teach the Common Core. As each of these things I was had to either had to align my instruction the Core or coach others to make sure they were implementing the core with fidelity or train others to help others implement the Core.
