About Candace

I am a former high school English and Algebra teacher as well as a former MCAs, English and math tutor. I've worked with all ages from pre-kindergarten to high school seniors and I have some experience with college students. I believe that every student can achieve the goals that we will set together from the first session together. I currently work with 4th grade students in inclusion ELA services where I provide lesson plans designed to help students become more fluent readers on and above grade level. I also work with students on phonics to build their reading abilities to grade level. Every student I have worked with has been reading and working on or up to three grade levels.
I love to help students discover new and inventive ways to learn! While you may have struggled in the past, I believe that YOU can do better if we work together and you put in the effort I know you can. Learning and working to build better skills is what we'll do with a detailed curriculum and lessons as well as regular progress check ins, formal and informal assessments. There won't be a wasted moment but it will definitely be engaging.


I am a former English teacher in a formal high school setting. I have also have worked with youth to improve their English skills in vocabulary building, reading comprehension and reading literacy. I have a wide variety of ways to work with students to open their minds to learning the material that we'll cover. I also work with students to advocate how they best learn to help them further develop their skills in the classroom and when they continue to grow as people. While the sessions are rigorous, they are worth every second and will students will show progress in both the goals that we set together as well as their academic grades in school.

I do ask and require 6 hours notice of missed appointments but there will be make up sessions if properly notified and scheduled. I ask that any student that wants to work with me know that we will work in a public space such as a library or through Skype so I ask that there be a quiet space for us to work together.
If you ever feel that we are not meeting the standards that we set with each other, please don't hesitate to tell me as we are working together to help improve your skills. I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.
