About Tracy

Hello- My name is Tracy, and I am certified Elementary Teacher and Special Education teacher though the state if Michigan. I graduated from Western Michigan University in April 2014. Through out my years at WMU I was able to have many experiences with children of all ages and learning levels. I was in Elementary schools, middle schools and was even a tutor for three children. I have all been a reading tutor, and mentor to an individual my last semester of school before I did my student teaching. I was able to go to England to do one semester of student teaching, where I have the opportunity to learn from many students from around the world.
Since my graduation from WMU I moved to England, and then moved back, and am now looking for opportunities to help children learn. With have a back ground for different learners, I believe that I have many strategies and resources that will help any child with their goal of learning. I look forward to helping anyone interested!

I love to read any type of book, and am very confident with the strategies my school has provided me with! I make learning fun in this area, mostly because it is my favorite!

I have worked with many students with many different learning styles, and needs. I believe this in this area I can help students learn with any difficulty in any area. I bring fun and innovative ways to learning and teaching different subjects. I have many tools that I can bring to tutoring sessions that will help students learn at their pace, and in a safe environment.

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

While attending Western Michigan University I was in public schools which had the common core standards within their curriculum. I have had many opportunities to write lesson plans in various subjects according to, and adhering to the common core standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

I currently hold a Michigan Teaching License with the certification of Elementary k-5 all subject areas. I have also done my student teaching in a fifth grade classroom, and many of my internships before my student teaching has been with elementary students. I was able to work with students of all ages, in different settings, and different class sizes.

Special Needs

I graduated from Western Michigan Cum Laude with a Special Education and Literacy Studies Major. I then received my Michigan Teaching License to teach all students with Special Needs k-12, with Cognitive Impairment and with Learning Disabilities.

Study Skills

Having a degree in Special Education, has given me the opportunity to learn about many different ways a student can study. I have a lot of resources that have been given to me, through my school, and that are research based that I am able to provide to my students.
