Elementary Education:

Elementary (K-6th),
Approved subjects are in **bold**.

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.

Algebra I is the first serious course in mathematics most students will take in high school, or for some students, late middle school. In Algebra I, the most important skills that students need to understand are how to solve equations, how to factor binomial and polynomial expressions into monomial and binomial factors, how to solve quadratic equations, how to solve integer operations (use negative numbers), how to graph equations, solve for the slope of equations, and simplify equations using order of operations and the combination of like terms.

As a certified elementary teacher in Massachusetts, I can teach beginning reading, writing, spelling, history, arithmetic, science, and social studies. I have one year's experience teaching the 5th grade, and prior to that I completed a student teaching practicum that lasted twelve weeks. I had many field experiences teaching Elementary education classes throughout my undergraduate studies; each experience lasted 10 hours.

To pass the mathematics part of the GED, candidates need to be able to fluently work with fractions, decimals, percents, arithmetic operations, algebra I, geometry, word problems, data, and negative numbers. Candidates for the English part of the GED need to be able to proficiently read, write, answer reading comprehension questions, spell, have a decent vocabulary, and analyze/critically review the writing of others.

As a sixth grade mathematics teacher and technology coach, I work with the Big Ideas curriculum, and have online access to all materials from sixth through eighth grade. I can also help with computer-based testing preparations.
