I am about to finish my first year as a Spanish Immersion teacher! Throughout this time I have worked in many different classrooms grades Kindergarten through 6th. Bouncing between grade levels each day allows me to differentiate unique strategies and techniques that fit each age level of students.

I am about to finish my first year as a Spanish Immersion teacher! Throughout this time I have worked in many different classrooms grades Kindergarten through 6th. Bouncing between grade levels each day allows me to differentiate unique strategies and techniques that fit each age level of students. I am also able to gather engaging activities and valuable resources to add to my collection! I graduated from Gustavus Adolphus College with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a minor in Spanish. I am excited to be able to use the skills and resources I have learned to tap into students' creativity and show them how fun learning can be.

I am excited to tutor because I want to make individual connections with students, see their progress and help them succeed. I have worked one on one with students who are English language learners, have a learning disorder or are just struggling in school. I have also created specific programs for students who struggle with reading and one that has dyslexia. I have also been focusing on biliteracy by finding strategies to help readers grow in two languages at the same time. Having helped students individually before I know the difference a good connection and engaging lessons can make in a student's progress. Helping them reach their goals is an amazing feeling that I love fostering.

I knew I wanted to become a teacher when I was able to teach my younger brother who has ADHD how to read. This was such a rewarding experience that I knew I wanted to help kids learn how to read for the rest of my life. I want to work more in 1st and 2nd grade because that is when most learning disabilities are found and diagnosed, and I want to help students navigate that in their school life. I know the challenges that they may face, and I want to help build their confidence and give them the tools necessary to become lifelong readers and learners.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns you have or to schedule a lesson. I can't wait to start working with you!

ADHD,

ADHD

I have worked with a variety of students with different learning disabilities. During my four years at college I volunteered at elementary schools to work specifically with students who had learning disabilities or were English Language Learners and created specific programs for them in math or reading to help them in the areas they were struggling with. Also my younger brother was diagnosed with ADHD at a young age and so I was constantly trying to help him with school work and reading by turning it into games so that he would complete his work but also enjoy learning.
