About Holly

Hi! My name is Holly E. I am a recent graduate from Grand Valley State University where I earned a Masters Degree in Literacy Studies with an additional endorsement in Early Childhood Education. In 2008, I earned my Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education with an emphasis in Social Studies from Grand Valley State University. I have had many classes in elementary education including: Elementary Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Physical Education, Reading, Writing, and Special Education. I have been an elementary teacher for 8 years. 7 of those years I have been teaching second grade. 1 year was at a school teaching a split class of third/fourth grade. I love seeing the look when children finally have something click. I use many different techniques of teaching that will work for your child. These techniques have been practiced in my classroom. Some different techniques include: hands-on learning, learning by music, movement learning, and others. I will get to know your child on an educational and personal basis. I believe that knowing a child will help provide the best teaching environment. For example, if a child really likes horses. I could incorporate horses into the lessons to ensure that I have the child's interest. If a child can be interested in their learning, they are more likely to remember and learn from the lessons. I want to make a difference in your child's life and help them become a better learner, reaching high potentials. Hi! My name is Holly E.

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.

Algebra 1

Algebra is such a fun puzzle to me. I enjoy trying to figure out the missing pieces. I have taken several classes in Algebra in college as well as high school where I excelled. I even tutored several classmates to help them prior to tests. I love when I can help make Algebra click for someone else.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching in an elementary setting for 8 years. 7 of those years have been teaching second grade. I teach math, reading, spelling, phonics, social studies, science, and writing. I utilize a variety of research based teaching strategies from individual instruction, small group, and whole group. I tutor several students after school on a weekly basis to help them with concepts that are difficult for them.

Elementary Math

I have been teaching elementary math for 8 years. I have taught 3rd, 4th, and 2nd grade levels. I have created intervention lessons for students who are behind grade level expectations and I have created challenges and enhanced lessons for those who were above grade level. I have planned tutoring sessions for students in grade levels up to 6th grade. I can use what your child is learning in the classroom and help them understand it better.

Reading

I have completed a Masters degree in Literacy Studies in 2016. I am up to date with best practices to help readers who may struggle learning to read or with comprehension. I enjoy sharing my love of reading with others and encouraging others to begin a lifelong love of reading.

Study Skills

I have experience working with a variety of students to develop skills to help them understand what they read in textbooks as well as how to best study to excel at tests. I use these same skills when I have to take tests for my own learning purposes. With my second graders, they are just beginning the steps to be successful at test taking and I am able to share with them strategies that work. We practice them over and over again until they can use them independently.
