I have been an elementary school educator of 15 years. I have taught both Kindergarten and First Grade. I have worked with many students over the years. I really enjoy watching the look of recognition on a students' face when they finally grasp a concept.
I also have a six year old daughter who has helped me grow as an educator. In addition for the past four years I have worked with a program providing parents access to educational resources in order to help their students learn. I have taught parents how to work with their children in both reading and math. I enjoy helping others challenge themselves and or find success with a challenging subject.
I have taught elementary math for the past 15 years. I enjoy making the math fun and adding my students likes to help the math come alive for them.
I have a special love for teaching reading. It is the key to success in all other subjects. Both my undergraduate and master's programs have had a focus on reading and literacy instruction.
I have been working with the common core state standards since they were introduced.

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.
I have been teaching the common core standards since they were adopted by the state of Maryland. I know how to access the standards for all grades and find the important elements. I have generated my own lessons and activities based on the standards and have taught parents how to work their their children using the standards at home.
I have completed 15 years of teaching in the elementary school setting. I have worked primarily with Kindergarten and First grade students but I have access to materials and resources that span the elementary grades. I have worked with general education, special education, and ESOL students.
