About Tiffany

My name is Tiffany and I love working in the educational field. I have a passion for teaching and learning.

I knew from the time I was in second grade that I wanted to teach. I had an opportunity my senior year of high school to be a 3rd/4th classroom aid and loved every minute of it.

I earned my bachelors in elementary education at MidAmerica Nazarene University. I taught for four year in an underserved, rural K-12 school where I taught 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade math, as well as 5th grade spelling and social studies. I was the home room teacher for the fifth grade students.

My husband was offered a job in Nashville last year and we moved our family of three to Nashville. Currently I am a stay at home mom for my eleven month old daughter, but can't wait to get back into the educational field.

While teaching I served on the curriculum committee responsible for choosing our new common core math curriculum. I also served on our technology committee in charge of integrating technology into our teaching and curriculum.

I can't wait to have the opportunity to work with you! I am excited to see what we can achieve together!

I worked at a Phonics and reading tutoring center for a year after college. I was responsible for the early reading class. During my tenure there, I had many 4 year olds reading independently at the end of my course. It allowed me to establish my foundation for reading instruction.

I served on the committee responsible for the common core math curriculum selection. As part of that role, I was responsible for aligning current curriculum with the common core standards and outlining discrepancies in our current curriculum in order to provide supplementation materials as needed.

I taught third, fourth, and fifth grade math, fifth grade spelling and fifth grade social studies for four years. I also was in charge of planning and assigning our at risk students to specified multi-tiered groups for math.

I would love for you to contact me in order to learn more about about me and schedule lessons that will help you achieve your goals!

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 spent 4 years in an underserved, rural school teaching 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade math, social studies, and spelling. I was in charge of lining our current curriculum up with the common core standards in math and supplementing where our curriculum fell short. I also served on the committee that was responsible for selecting our new common core math curriculum.

Handwriting

As part of my 4 years of formal teaching experience, I helped many students with their handwriting skills. I worked with 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students who needed support in the foundational handwriting skills they were missing and referred to specialties when there was a concern.

Phonics

I was in charge of our multi-tiered system of support (MTSS) group focusing on phonics during my 4 years of formal teaching experience. I also spent a year tutoring for a language arts center focusing on 4 year old early readers. This included developing a foundation in phonics for these students.

Tiffany is incredibly organized, patient, and knowledgeable. Perfect for my niece.

Last night was the first session. The goal was to evaluate my niece's understanding of math. Tiffany arrived fully prepared to do just that. She guided my niece through a series of math problems to find where she needs the most help. Tiffany is kind, patient and observant. She can tell whether my niece "gets it" or not, and then adjusts accordingly. Fantastic!!
