Hello, my name is Heather and I am a former elementary school teacher who loves working with children. I taught for five years in Boston, Massachusetts and Benton, Maine. For the past nine years, I have been a stay-at-home mom, and I have remained current in my field by regularly volunteering in my children's classrooms, teaching Sunday school, and substitute teaching. Additionally, I have maintained my teaching certification by taking continuing education courses. My goals as a tutor are to meet students where they are at academically and tailor my instruction to their individual needs. Whenever possible, I include hands-on and real world experiences to improve learning and comprehension of the skills being taught. It is always my goal to make learning both fun and effective. I look forward to working with you!

Elementary (K-6th)

As a certified elementary school teacher, I taught in a self-contained classroom for five years. During this time, I instructed my students in all disciplines. In mathematics, I utilized hands-on learning, real world mathematics, and technology in my classrooms to successfully help children learn necessary skills. I taught reading in my classrooms using trade books and phonics and whole language instruction to help my students successfully progress as readers. In science and social studies, my methods included classroom experiments, project and theme based instruction, as well as classroom learning centers. Additionally, I have remained current in my field by regularly volunteering in elementary school classrooms and taking continuing education courses.
