University of Phoenix (Elementary Education)
Hello, my name is Kory and I am currently a substitute teacher within Cecil County public schools. I am 41 years old and a mother of 3 daughters who attend schools in Cecil County. I recently graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education with a GPA of 3.87. I have spent the last 2 years substituting at various elementary schools and working as a math intervention tutor in a Title 1 school system. This experience was very valuable and gave me an insight in what it takes to run a successful classroom and to become a productive tutor.
I believe that all students are able to learn and become productive in both school and the world. During the 2014-2015 school year, I worked at an after school homework club. I worked with students in kindergarten up to sixth grade. I was able to help them complete their homework as well as teach them strategies to help them succeed in the classroom. This experience allowed me to work with a number of students on all levels of learning, which I believe has allowed me to be more prepared as both a teacher and a tutor.
Reading has always been a passion for me. I believe that reading can open up a whole new world for students. Having the opportunity to read and discover is something I feel that all people should have the chance to succeed in.
I have worked with elementary level students for many years. I believe that all students have the opportunity to succeed in the classroom. Through this I have used many strategies to help engage my students and help them become interested in the learning process.
Education is the key to success and through hard work and determination all students can prosper. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have.

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.
As a certified grades 1-6 teacher, I have been working with the Common Core aspects of education over the past two years. I have become aware of how Common Core is used in both math and language arts. In this aspect of education the teacher wants her students to think outside the box and think about other ways they can solve problems. I have worked with Maryland College and Career Ready Standards. These standards allow for students to become ready for careers when finished either high school or college. In my experience working as a math tutor I used these standards to help ensure that all of my students are understanding the mathematical concepts I was teaching.
