About Archella

Does your young scholar need help in understanding place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication or division? Does your young scholar struggle with reading, reading comprehension, writing and grammar? Does your young scholar have trouble with homework? If so, look no further. I can help your scholar overcome their misunderstandings and become the best young scholar they can be.

For the past eleven years, I have been teaching students and helping them to realize their goals. I have a Master's degree in Early Childhood Education, and I am certified to teach grades Preschool through Third. I have taught the following grades: kindergarten, first, third, prekindergarten and even preschool! This year I am teaching second grade! I have also tutored students in grades first through third in math and reading.

My approach to teaching is through hands on learning. Students need to manipulate their world in order to make sense of it. So through various manipulatives and/or real-life experiences students can move from the abstract to concrete. In addition, I make learning fun! My students love coming to my class and learning. They say it feels like a game, but the secret is that they are actually learning!

So if you want your scholar to be prepared for their road to college and beyond, I can help get them there. If you want learning to be fun and exciting for them, I can do that. If you want to start tutoring sessions today, I am your tutor!

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)

As a certified teacher, with a Masters Degree in Early Childhood, I teach a balance of reading, writing, phonics, math, science and social studies lessons in elementary classrooms.

Elementary Science

The approach to teaching elementary science is one of inquiry and discovery through investigations and observations. The focus is on life, earth and physical science domains where students will learn through hands-on explorations.

Phonics

I am trained in the Wilson program, Fundations, that helps students with print knowledge, alphabet awareness, phonological awareness, phonemic awareness, decoding, vocabulary, fluency, and spelling.

Praxis

I have taken and passed the following Praxis exams; Praxis I, Praxis 0021 and Praxis 0014. All of the above exams have led me to a certification in Early Childhood Education and Highly Qualified status with DC Public Schools.

Reading

Reading is comprised of five areas; phonemic awareness, vocabulary, comprehension, phonics and fluency. Reading instruction will focus on activities in all areas, with the most emphasis on guided reading, in which the student will read books on his/her instructional level with assistance to achieve success.
