About Tracy

I am an experienced classroom teacher with 20 years of knowledge. I have been tutoring for the last 10 years of my career. I have taught in grades, 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th in the elementary grades. My teaching certificate/license is from First Grade-Sixth. My strengths lie in Reading and Writing, and vocabulary if needed. I am a very flexible teacher, which allows me more agility when tutoring my students. I consider myself very patient and kind as well as determined and eager to get the job done. In all of my tutoring jobs, my students have made significant growth, which easily transitioned them to their next academic level. I am an experienced classroom teacher with 20 years of knowledge.

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.

Handwriting

I am qualified to teach handwriting to Elementary students because I completed courses during my undergraduate study. I am able to teach your child correct letter formations as well as how to write complete sentences using appropriate spacing.

Phonics

Most of my teaching experience comes from First Grade. This is a very formative and important grade because this is where many reading capabilities are nurtured and extended. This is also when many students are introduced to many different vowel patterns and phonics skills. If your child needs helps with phonics, I know how to begin with the basic principles to help your child succeed.

Reading

I have a Reading Specialist Certificate as well as 20 years of Classroom experience.

Study Skills

Having good study skills are pertinent throughout one's life. Since I am a certified teacher, I have the capabilities to help your child progress and succeed with their study skills by teaching them how to choose a correct answer when answering multiple choice items by using process of elimination. I can also show them how to find answers to questions that are inferred, and how to respond to open-ended responses.

Wonderful

Tracy was just what our son needed! She was patient and very knowledgeable. We couldn't have found a better tutor for our son. She was able to engage with him from the very beginning and have him write the very first time she saw him. WyzAnt is a bargain for the tutor that we received. Tracy is phenomenal.
