About Heidi

Hi, my name is Heidi. I am a professionally certified elementary school teacher in three states and have been teaching for the past 20 years in the D.C. metro area. I have a bachelors degree and two masters degrees, all in elementary education. My experience teaching in the Montgomery County school system has given me an in-depth knowledge and understanding of the standards-based curriculum that students are challenged with every day. Through my broad experience as a classroom teacher I have gained a sensitivity toward the unique learning styles of elementary school students and developed strategies that make learning fun. I take a personal interest in the success of each student and every one receives my individualized attention. How important is your child's education?

My areas of specialty are Algebra 1, English, Grammar, Phonics, Reading, Special needs, Study skills, Vocabulary, and Writing, at the elementary, K-6 level.

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 (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary teacher and Reading Specialist. I have been teaching first and second grade for the past six years and was a Reading Specialist for 2 years. I have worked for nine years in MCPS here in Maryland.

Piano

I have had piano lessons for seven years and have performed classical pieces in public. I know the keyboard and how to sightread music. I can teach basic piano lessons and instruct beginners in how to play.

Special Needs

I am a professionally certified elementary school teacher in three states and have been teaching for the past 20 years. I have worked with students who have special needs such as ADD, ADHD, LD, EMR, Apraxia, and those who suffer setbacks from diseases such as Meningitis. I have worked with mentally challenged students who require a slower pace and increased emphasis on fine motor skills. I have a special needs sister. I have experience in understanding her needs for love and acceptance as well as help in reading, writing, and math.

Study Skills

I have worked with students in the area of study skills by offering strategies in math and reading to help them retain what they learn in the classroom. I incorporate games as a way to make learning fun!

Looking forward to future sessions! — Our son has taken to Heidi, who is the personification of patience! During the moments that he enters "entertaining mode" and acted like a typical 7 year old, she remained even-keel and got him back on track. With her 20+ years of teaching experience, we are completely comfortable handing the reigns over to her. We are only 3 visits in but feel like she is going to be the patient, steady hand t ...
