Michigan State University (Elementary Education)
I am a recent graduate of Michigan State University with an Elementary Education major focusing on Language Arts and minoring in Mathematics. I just finished my year-long internship through MSU at a public school in Detroit. This experience has provided me with an amazing opportunity to test out different lesson plans, management techniques, projects, and approaches to subjects. As a direct result, my eyes have been open to the countless strategies and procedures that are available to both teachers and students in order to better the student's learning and understanding.
Before my internship, I was highly-involved in teaching both inside and outside of the classroom. I created and taught personalized lessons in a second, third, and fourth grade. In addition, I also participated in an MSU program called Homework Helpers. Every Monday evening for 3 hours, I would go to the local library and any student who needed assistance in any area would drop by. I had a few 'regular's who needed weekly assistance in Math and Reading, but I also had students who just needed a little extra attention on one topic. Regardless of who walked through that door, all of my students walked away with newly discovered knowledge.
One of the many things that I loved about MSU is their sense of self-discovery or inquiry that they instilled in every future teacher that graduated from their program. As a Spartan, I am always challenging myself and my students to understand not only a concept or an idea, but also the logic and reasoning behind it. In math, it's easy to memorize a formula and to be done, but I always challenge my student to go further so that their knowledge is deepened and broadened. There have been countless studies that prove that if a person discovers some new on their own, they are more likely to be engaged with it and to remember it.
During my internship, I was assigned a reading group to work with. This group worked diligently daily and over time saw an incredible amount of progress. Through my schooling and my experiences, I have learned many different strategies to ensure that a student's reading goals and growths are met.
Because of my hours of experience in the classroom, my Elementary Education degree, my Elementary Education certification, and my subbing experiences, I am comfortable working with students at this age. I believe that students at this year are becoming young adults and as a result, they need plenty of positive role models as well as an increase knowledge of the world. I am extremely confident that because of my past I can provide this environment to any students I'm privileged enough to teach.
There is nothing that I love more than helping a student reach that 'light-bulb' moment. Working one-on-one with a student is a privilege and if given the opportunity, I would work diligently with your student to ensure that he or she is growing and expanding their knowledge.

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.
I hold a degree from Michigan State University in Elementary Education, a teaching certification in Elementary Education. In addition, I also have 3 years of student teaching experience. After I graduated I had to complete one full year of co-teaching (10 weeks of teaching alone) and after that was over I completed two months of subbing.
