About Tamara

I have 25 years experience in elementary education. I love the look on a student's face when they really understand and feel good about what they have learned. I believe that every student is capable of learning to the best of their ability. I believe that students' learn best when they are confident in their ability to learn and be successful in what they are learning. Tutoring elementary students keeps me young in mind!
I have six children and four granddaughters who I love with all my heart! I have two Boston Terriers who keep me laughing! I love gardening, reading, camping, and children!

I taught K-3 for 25 years. These are the years when reading skills are built and taught. My education also focused on teaching reading to beginning readers. I have been tutoring individual elementary students for the past 10 plus years in reading.

I am a College Supervisor for St. Mary's College of Maryland during the school year. I supervise student teachers at the elementary school level. I have been doing this for five years. In order to evaluate these interns I must stay up-to-date with the Common Core Curriculum and standards for K-6 grades.

As a retired Educator, a active tutor, and a College Supervisor I have stayed current on all the research, teaching strategies, and techniques. I am in and out of the elementary schools in my area all school year and have extensive interactions with the elementary grade level teams within each school.

I am trained by profession in phonics strategies and am very familiar with a variety of school-based phonics programs including Fundations.

Your student will enjoy the time spent with me!!! Because your student will enjoy the time spent tutoring, they will also learn how to be successful learners. Please schedule a tutoring session as soon as possible to start seeing the difference in your student!

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 am a College Supervisor for student teachers at St. Mary's College of Maryland and I have been tutoring elementary students for over 10 years. Both of these activities require me to have extensive knowledge and understanding of the Common Core Curriculum for the state of Maryland. As a college supervisor I evaluate interns on their ability to teach based on the standard they identify, the objectives they state based on the standard, and the assessment used to evaluate the students' level of accomplishment of the objective. As a tutor my lessons are currently tied directly to the Common Core test results for individual students.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a B.S. in Early Childhood Education that certifies me Birth to 3rd Grade and a M.Ed. in Teacher Leadership K-12. I have 25 years experience as a classroom teacher in grades K-3; 10 years tutoring K-7; and 5 years experience supervising student teachers K-6 grades.

Handwriting

I am trained in Handwriting Without Tears. I am also trained as an elementary education teacher and part of my education included a 3 credit class on handwriting and letter formation.

Phonics

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Early Childhood Education and as such am trained in a variety of reading strategies including phonics. As an elementary school teacher with 25 years experience I have worked with many phonics programs. Currently I am most familiar with Fundations through the public school system where my students come from and my student interns teach.
