About Elizabeth

Hi! I am currently student teaching in Chicago in kindergarten. I love working with my kindergartners! I have also worked closely with 2nd-4th grade, but I would be able to tutor anyone up to 8th grade. I will be graduating in June from DePaul university with an undergrad elementary education major. I love my career field and I love working with children. I have been a nanny for the last 10 years to help pay for school. I thrive when working in a setting with children. I love seeing their potential and their educational worth. I look forward to tutoring and working one on one with students, since this is the main reason I went into the teaching field!

During my student teaching program, I have been able to work closely with all different leveled readers and I have been able to test students on their reading levels. I have completed running records to help move students up the reading scale.

I have studied Common Core throughout my years at DePaul and I have had to work closely with it when creating lesson plans.

I have been working closely with kindergartners for the last 6 months and have helped many students grow and expand their handwriting and spelling skills. Kindergarten is such a new experience for most of the students and they come ready to grow. I have loved watching the students grow and learn the new skills that kindergarten can teach them.

I would love to get to work one on one with students! This will be such a great opportunity for me as well as the students that I will be working with. I look forward to growing and learning along the way with my students!

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.

Common Core

I have studied common core the last 4 years at DePaul. It is a requirement to know the standards for lesson plans and what should and shouldn't be included in the plans. I have always tailored my lesson plans to match the needs of the standards. I make sure to teach the common core standards in a fun and educational way. I have studied common core in the Everyday math curriculum as well as Lucy Caulkin's handwriting and reading curriculum.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am about to graduate from DePaul University in elementary education. I have spent the last 4 years in classrooms and volunteering my time in programs that involve children. I volunteered at an after school non-profit tutoring place in Chicago 3 days a week during my junior year. I am student teaching in kindergarten at a Chicago Public School. I have spent a great amount of time in second and third grade CPS schools as well. I have seen what is needed to tailor the teaching methods for each student.

Handwriting

I have deeply studied Lucy Caulkin's handwriting methods during my student teaching experience. I have worked closely with kindergarten students and helping them practice their handwriting. If they have sloppy handwriting I have them go back and re-write it. For my students that need modifications for writing, I write words on a small dry erase board at their desk so they can practice with me on their before they write it on their page. I practice going line to line with the students and make sure they pay attention to the lowercase and uppercase letters within their sentences. I love working on handwriting with students, I believe it is an important skill to have.

Reading

I just spent the last few months in a kindergarten classroom student teaching. I was working with a wide range of reading abilities. I created different activities to work on reading comprehension and reading fluency for both my high group of readers and my struggling readers. I love working on reading with students because it is my favorite subject area to teach!
