About Gwen

My name is Gwen and I have been an elementary school teacher for 28 years. Currently I am in my second year as an Instructional Coach at an elementary school where I support classroom teachers with instruction and curriculum as well as provide them with remediation and acceleration interventions in order to support the needs of all students. I earned my M.Ed. in Elementary Education from NC State University in 2013. I am licensed in North Carolina to teach Elementary Education K-6, Elementary Mathematics K-6, and Academically and Intellectually Gifted K-12. I am experienced with administering the state reading assessments for K-3- Reading 3D mClass DIBELS and TRC- and how to plan instruction based on those scores. I am familiar with the North Carolina Read to Achieve initiative for third graders and the different pathways available for students to show proficiency on 3rd grade reading skills in order to pass the third grade.

My tutoring services typically begin with having your child take an assessment so I can learn his/her academic strengths and weakness. With that information as well as state and local assessment results from school and input from parents, I can create a learning plan that will put your child on the road to success. I will also work closely with your child’s teachers at school, if necessary (with parental permission, of course) to ensure that I am providing the support that is needed in order for the student to be successful. I look forward to hearing from you. I hope that we are able to work together to create a plan for success for your child.

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 was an elementary school teacher for 26 years. Currently I am in my second year as an Instructional Coach at an elementary school where I support classroom teachers with instruction and curriculum as well as provide them with remediation and acceleration interventions in order to support the needs of all students. I have been a teacher-trainer of Common Core in my district since before its implementation. I earned my M.Ed. in Elementary Education from NC State University in 2013. I am licensed in North Carolina to teach Elementary Education K-6, Elementary Mathematics K-6, and Academically and Intellectually Gifted K-12.

Phonics

I was an elementary school teacher for 26 years. Fourteen of those 26 years were spent teaching the first grade curriculum which includes the teaching of phonemic awareness and phonics skills as stepping stones to learning how to read. I am experienced with administering the state reading assessments for K-3- Reading 3D mClass DIBELS and TRC- and how to plan instruction based on those scores. I am familiar with the North Carolina Read to Achieve initiative for third graders and the different pathways available for students to show proficiency on 3rd grade reading skills in order to pass the third grade.
