About Heidi

I believe that learning should be hands on and engaging. In my Pre-K classroom I make learning fun by providing my students with various hands on activities. I understand that each child learns differently and at his or her own pace. I strive to meet the individual needs of all my learners while holding them all too high expectations and learning success. As a child I struggled to learn the same skills that my peers seemed to effortlessly master. I remember hating school and wanting to give up. I became a teacher because I did not want other children to feel like failures.

I love watching my students make new discoveries and gain new skills. I love that spark that lights up their eyes as they gain the confidence to take on new and challenging tasks. In my classroom I tell me students that “can’t” is a bad word, and will not let them use that word when talking about their abilities. Instead they have to use words like “learning to” or “trying to” this way they view their abilities with positivity.

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 am a highly qualified teacher certified by the state of North Carolina. Other teachers will send their students to my room when the student refuses to do their work. Typically these students are sent to my room because they are acting out in their own room, and when I ask why they were not doing their work they tell me it is because they do not understand it or know how to complete the assignment properly. I will sit down with the student and help them successful complete the assignment.

Reading

I have a degree in Early Childhood Education and am in the process of earning a Master's in Special Education. I have been working with high needs kids for four years and have been working with children of all ages for almost ten.
