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 have taught for many years and have taught many Common Core workshops. I have written math common core test questions for Smarter Balanced and am currently an instructional coach who teaches teachers in the building how to create common core lessons in all content areas. I am certified as a teacher in the state of NC, have my National Board Certification and my add-on license in Academically Gifted (K-12).

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in the state of NC with my Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education K-6. I am also Nationally Board Certified in Early Childhood which means I can teach anywhere in the U.S. without having to attain their state credentials because I have achieved national credentials through rigorous requirements and standards of teaching. I also have my add-on license in Academically Gifted Education K-12. I have been teaching and working with students for over 18 years. I believe hands-on activities, games and making connections are all ways to engage students in learning. Working in your child's preferred learning style and making it relevant to the real world are also important to the success of your child. I have been a teacher for Teacher Academy in Algebraic Reasoning and have taught multiple workshops on teaching educators how to teach students to read and write. Helping students grow and succeed in areas of academics that are challenging for them is so rewarding and what I love the most in the work I do!

Elementary Math

I am certified as a teacher in the state of NC, have my Naional Board Certification and my add-on license in Academically Gifted (K-12). I have taught for many years and have taught many workshops on math content and related math strategies to include algebraic reasoning at Teacher Academy. I look forward to working with you on improving your math skills and understanding!!

English

I have taught for many years and have thorough knowledge and command of the English language. I look forward to working with you on improving your English skills and understanding of this subject.

Handwriting

I have taught third grade for many years where I had to teach students how to hold their pencil and form both print and cursive letters. I have a strategic plan for introducing sets of letters that all start the same way and they are introduced in a series until all letters are taught. I am certified as a teacher in the state of NC, have my National Board Certification and my add-on license in Academically Gifted (K-12).

Literature

I am certified as a teacher in the state of NC, have my Naional Board Certification and my add-on license in Academically Gifted (K-12). Literature and reading is my passion! I want to make it come alive for you just as it has for me. Struggling to understand theme, read the text with fluency or understand main idea and details? Let me help you improve your reading skills so that it becomes easier and more enjoyable for you!!

Phonics

I have taught for many years and have taught many workshops on reading strategies and ways to understand and interact with the different types of text. I have taught the Soar To Success program where I teach students to decode and blend words and complete word work lessons with them on a regular basis. We work on phoneme segmention, first sound fluency end sound fluency, phonics patterns, blends, digraphs, dipthongs, consonant clusters and welded endings. WIth a strong understanding of these skills, students become stronger decoders, and more fluent readers. This allows them to take the focus off decoding and begin to focus on comprehension of the text. I am certified as a teacher in the state of NC, have my National Board Certification and my add-on license in Academically Gifted (K-12).

Reading

I am certified as a teacher in the state of NC, have my Naional Board Certification and my add-on license in Academically Gifted (K-12).

I look forward to working with you on improving your reading skills!!

Study Skills

I have taught for many years to include tested grades where students are required to complete high-stakes end of grade tests. I teach various test taking strategies such as question-answer relationships, process of elimination, the stop-sign strategy and SQ3R. I look forward to working with you on improving your study skills!
