About Alicia

I am a 5th/6th grade teacher who is currently looking to tutor students in need of help in any elementary school subject/grade, over the summer. I have been teaching for two full years and my students had a 90% proficiency rate on the Maryland State Assessment (MSA) last year. One of the most rewarding parts about teaching is when a student goes from confused and hating a subject to understanding the subject and having the desire to learn more.

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 have given instruction to fifth graders on both script and cursive handwriting. I have practice materials that will help children improve their handwriting. Some students whose handwriting was almost unreadable, improved with the instruction and materials I provided them with.

Phonics

I taught phonics to first graders in my final internship, during college. During this time, I also created and facilitated a before school phonics intervention program with eight target students. For this program, I evaluated and assessed reading skills; provided instructional support through engaging small-group phonics activities that developed and improved the students literacy skills.

Social Studies

I have taught Social Studies for the past two years now, to fifth and sixth graders. I have access to Social Studies text books for all grades K-6. I know how to make Social Studies more interesting and exciting to learn!
