About Sage

I graduated Summa Cum Laude from Harris Stowe State University in 2008. I have a degree in elementary education and was fully certified while I was substitute teaching in the Webster Groves and Clayton schools districts. I have worked with kids in an educational setting for over 6 years. I was a volunteer after school tutor for two years. I also worked one on one with students all throughout college. I am now a stay at home mom looking to earn extra income to help support my family.

I was trained in school with valuable skills and strategies to help children learn to read and to increase their reading levels. I have a passion for reading and helping kids not only build confidence in their reading skills but to instill in them a love of reading for themselves.

My protocol for tutoring is as follows:
-develop a trusting relationship with my student
-assess the level of where my student is at
-set goals
-develop a plan and timeline to meet those goals
-carry out the plan
-reassess the student's level and whether or not the goals have been met
-readjust plan as needed.

I also believe it is very important to help build confidence in students so that they are able to better learn and stay motivated to continue learning.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated from Harris Stowe State University with a degree in Elementary Education degree in 2008. I was fully certified to teach grades 1-6 until 2012. For two years I substitute taught kindergarten through 6th grade in two different school districts. I volunteered for 2 years with an after-school tutoring program called Firm Foundation where I worked one-on-one with individual students to help them complete their homework and build up their confidence in reading. Also, throughout college I had several practicums where I worked with students on an individual basis. I know how to develop lesson plans so that there are specific goals for the student to meet and then a way to assess the student to determine if those learning goals have been met.
