About Stefany

My teaching experiences over the past 13 years have been focused on home-schooling, as well as career planning and college general education tutoring. Outside of the "classroom" I have been working to bridge some gaps between home-schooling, traditional education, and the technological world through blogging and creating educational resources for teachers, tutors, and home schooling parents.

I began my tutoring experience 5 years ago, and have really found my niche in the teaching world. I love to work one-on-one with students because I am able to meet the student exactly where he is and provide the needed support to get him to where he wants to (or should) be.

My teaching style is unique as I try to help my students connect their lessons to everyday life, bring education and fun together, and encourage students to think outside-of-the-box. I use everyday experiences to make the lessons more applicable to students' lives and goals. My focus is predominantly on finding connections the students can use in order to use their abilities to strengthen their weaknesses.

I also hold a bachelors degree in Social Science w/a concentration in education. This is much more than a random education degree, however. The course work involved vast research and training into the psychological and sociological background of learning. So I use this knowledge to help provide the best supports to meet my students' specific needs.

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)

I have designed curriculum for all subject areas that correlate with Michigan's state standards for elementary education, grades Kindergarten through sixth. I have 11 years' experience teaching in a homeschooling setting, as well as 3 years in home school cooperative teaching 3-6 students per course, in addition to a cumulative 2 years' experience tutoring on a volunteer basis, and 3 years professionally.

Elementary Math

I collaborate in several groups of teacher/authors, creating curriculum supports that meet Common Core State Standards, and Michigan standards.

Phonics

I have completed four undergraduate courses in Phonics, Language acquisition, and related reading proficiencies. I use the Reading FUNdamentals program "Action Reading" to teach students the fundamentals of the written English Language to promote learning to read and write using systematic phonics instruction.
