I currently teach 8th grade English at a Parkway School District. This is my sixth year teaching. I graduated from Mizzou with my Masters in Education. Go Tigers! I currently teach 8th grade English, however, I have had experience working with students of all ages.

The thing I love most about teaching and tutoring is getting to know the students! Tutoring is a great method because I can give students one-on-one attention and can help them make huge gains in their learning. To do this, I use a wide range of resources and a variety of teaching methods, including cooperative learning, inquiry, problem-based learning and more. I make the material approachable and relevant to students who may not like the content area or who struggle with the subject. I differentiate my instruction so that all students have the support they need to be successful.

I can't wait to work with you to help you reach you academic goals! Contact me to schedule a session! I am available most weekdays after 4. I look forward to hearing from you!

I teach proof-reading skills to my students daily. Each day, we start class with a sentence that needs to be edited and fixed. I go over comma rules, ellipsis, using colons and more.

Vocabulary

Vocabulary

In order to teach vocabulary, I teach word parts. I teach students prefixes, bases, and suffixes. When students learn how to break down words and analyze word parts, they are able to get meaning from words that they have never seen before. In addition, I teach students to use context clues in order to figure out unknown words. My students also have weekly words that are commonly used to learn, memorize, and apply.
