About Olivia

With five years of teaching and tutoring in my background, I think the true cause of success in learning is through an understanding of how a person learns. From there, you can achieve pillars never thought to occur. I was contracted to work in DC Public Schools through Achieve Tutoring where I provided homework help and facilitated lesson plans surrounding math, reading, science and other subjects to grades K-5. I also, provided private tutoring to an elementary school client while working with Achieve Tutoring. I was also, able to work with grades 6-12 in honor summer conferences covering historical and political curriculum. More recently, I accepted a position as a full-time high school teacher in Maryland and am in the process of obtaining my Maryland Department of State Education certificate (November 2016). I have a natural patience in working with grades K-12 that has allotted me many opportunities in education along with many rewarding results in even the most challenging situations.

My approach to tutoring is flexible in a sense where I am able to teach various subjects in a variety of styles to ensure that clients have a thorough understanding. I have a Masters of Arts in Clinical Mental Health Counseling that allows me to connect further with clients and students through educational means. I am also, open to feedback which allows me to adjust lesson plans to the client. Previous work with clients have included lesson plans, pop quizzes, exams and experiential learning opportunities where I once designed a store for a client who had never encountered money or I challenged other clients to compete for their understanding of our text read. I believe patience and flexibility are key components of success when working with clients on their educational goals. I am open to challenges near where I might be required to drive or far where we will have to meet online!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 Math

I have three years experience in both tutoring and teaching of elementary math in public and private schools.

Prealgebra

I currently teach Algebra I in high school which requires a great understanding of Pre-Algebra. I cover Pre-Algebra with students to ensure they can understand the curriculum.

Reading

I have taught reading to first graders for over two years in DCPS and through an afterschool program that I oversaw.
