About Holly

I have been teaching both children and adults for many years and love to help people in their quest of lifelong learning.

I have a master's in Elementary Education and certifications in English as a Second Language and Elementary Education. I love watching my students develop their skills and do better in their reading, writing, grades, and tests scores.

As a well-rounded educator, I have had the opportunity to not only attain my masters, but to also teach a diverse group of students of assorted ages in a variety of classroom and educational settings. I have prior experience teaching first grade in the Methuen school system. After taking time off to raise my children, I taught ESL to adults preparing to earn their GEDs (General Education Diploma). I am now working in an elementary school with children in grades k-5. There I run small group instruction in reading, math, and English Language.

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)

As a well-rounded educator, I have had the opportunity to not only attain my masters, but to also teach a diverse group of students of assorted ages in a variety of classroom and educational settings. I have prior experience teaching first grade in the Methuen school system. After taking time off to raise my children, I taught ESL to adults preparing to earn their GEDs (General Education Diploma). I am now working in an elementary school with children in grades k-5. There I run small group instruction in reading, math, and English Language. I have experience teaching and assessing reading as well as facilitating phonics and fluency programs as well.
As a result of all these experiences, I have gained in-depth knowledge of accommodating different styles and abilities of learners and incorporating effective methods to differentiate instruction and to meet students’ individual needs.

my goal with my students both young and (not so) old, is to not only teach them skills, impart on them a love of learning. This can be done by games, hand on activities and things like drama or Reader’s Theatre. I always promote an energizing and creative learning environment that motivates my students. I like to work on life skills and topics that would interest my students and in turn promote more learning. I introduce new concepts and make connections to my students’ lives.
