About Alexis

I have a passion for children and I want to see every child succeed. Between volunteering, working as a teachers aide, student teaching, and having my own classroom, I have 10+ years of experience working with children. My greatest joy is watching people excel and succeed in life despite obstacles and circumstances. My passion and joy keeps me going and advocating for all my students.

I been teaching Elementary English for the last three years. I have taught first grade and third grade. I understand the importance of early foundation skills from teaching first grade and teaching third grade has allowed me to see the progress of how students learn English. Having taught first grade has been very beneficial in helping my English Language Learners and below grade level students in third grade.

I have great practice and knowledge of teaching Common Core State Standards because those are the standards that the state of Maryland has followed the past three years. I have taken professional developments and reached out to various colleagues to get deep understanding of the standards, which has helped me to effectively implement daily lesson plans to my students.

I realize the important of phonics and the impact it has on students reading skills. I use running records, spelling tests, and anecdotal notes to keep track of students strengths and weakness in the area of phonics. I truly believe that if students have great foundational skills it will help them excel in reading.

I am looking forward to building great readers through fun lesson plans and activities. If you are looking to succeed and excel in reading while having a great time, please contact me. I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Common Core

I am well acquainted with the Common Core state standards and have been creating lesson plans aligned to them for three years now. I have decomposed the standards and compared and contrasted them across grade levels in order to create effective lesson plans.

Phonics

I had experience with teaching phonics during my internship, prior to receiving my teacher certification. I have been teaching phonics to students for three years now. With teaching phonics, I use various tools such as technology, letter blocks, dry erase boards, and elkonin boxes. I also make sure I connect phonics to reading by having students highlight, circle, and underline certain words in that text that align to the phonics skill(s) being taught.
