About Alicia

In 2011, I graduated from Kutztown University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary and Early Childhood Education, as well as minor in Reading Education. Prior to graduating, I was lucky enough to complete three, 7.5 week teaching placements, each of which in a different grade level (Kindergarten, 2nd, and 5th). In doing so, I was able to see the differences in curriculum, expectations, and development across the elementary level. While in college and for about a year after graduating, I worked at a NAEYC accredited childcare center, teaching children through age 12.

After leaving the childcare center, I began substitute teaching for a few school districts in Pennsylvania at the elementary/intermediate level. I recently relocated to the area to teach first grade in Prince George's County Public Schools. I am comfortable tutoring all elementary/intermediate subject areas, including Math, Reading/Language Arts (including Phonics, Spelling, Writing, and Vocabulary), Science, and Social Studies. In addition, I have experience working with many students who need additional help to meet learning goals.

I am currently working on my Master's plus certification in Special Education at West Chester University of Pennsylvania. Thank you for taking the time to read a little bit about me! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am certified to teach Elementary and Early Childhood Education in Pennsylvania and Maryland, and am working on my Master's plus certification in Special Education. I currently teach first grade in Prince George's County Public Schools. I have experience working with students with ADD and ADHD in my own first grade classroom. In addition my 8 year old nephew also has ADHD.

Aspergers

I am currently certified in Elementary and Early Childhood Education, and am working on my Master's plus certification in Special Education. I have experience adapting curriculum to meet student's specific, individual learning needs. I have worked with students with Aspergers during my student teaching placement in kindergarten and in my first grade classroom.

Autism

I am currently certified in Elementary and Early Childhood Education, and am working on my Master's plus certification in Special Education. I have experience adapting curriculum to meet student's specific, individual learning needs. I have experience working with students with mild autism in the classroom setting during my student teaching in kindergarten, as a substitute, and now as a first grade teacher.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in Elementary and Early Childhood Education in Pennsylvania and Maryland.

Elementary Math

I am a first grade teacher, but am also certified to teach up to 6th grade. I know both the "new" and "old" methods of teaching math.

ESL/ESOL

As part of my Master's degree, I took a class on teaching English Language Learners, which covered the SIOP method. I also have many English Language Learners in my own classroom.

Handwriting

As a first grade teacher I teach my students handwriting on a regular basis. In college, I received training in Zaner-Bloser printing and cursive, but learned D'Nealion in elementary school.

Macintosh

I have owned Mac for more than three years, and also use a Mac daily at work. I also have experience using other technologies made by Apple, such as iPads, iPhones, etc.

Phonics

I believe that phonics is a key subject area that children need to learn, as it greatly helps them in both reading and writing! During my Kindergarten student teaching placement, I taught phonics on a daily basis. When I transitioned to my 2nd grade placement, I continued teaching phonics, but at a higher level, and typically three to four times per week. I continue to teach phonics in my own first grade classroom.

Special Needs

I am currently certified in Elementary and Early Childhood Education, and am working on my Master's plus certification in Special Education. I have experience adapting curriculum to meet student's specific, individual learning needs.
