About Erin

Having just graduated UNC Pembroke with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I have decided that I loved working more one-on-one rather than in a large group setting, so I am trying WyzAnt and challenging myself to try the tutoring atmosphere. I love watching students take their time and even with some assistance make the connection through learning. I like being outside and learning from real life experiences and believe that is the best way to learn.

Through student teaching I learned that even in the classroom, students cannot be conformed to how we are teaching them. Some need to hear the information, some need to touch it, some needs to see it; that is what makes teaching so interesting. Not every student is the same and learning each student comes best in a tutoring atmosphere.

Math can be fun! I believe it can become an overwhelming subject and students need to realize that if they take their time, remember the steps and apply them then they can succeed. I am willing to sit down and show them that MATH can be conquered!

I love to read and write. The more you write the more you allow your imagination to soar! The more you expose yourself to the world of letters, words, and stories the more of a better writer you will be which then follows you to a better vocabulary. Writing provides a way to share your thoughts and I want to be able to show students that you can accomplish writing in a stress free environment and not dread writing papers, etc.

I graduated from UNC Pembroke with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I completed my Student teaching in a 3rd grade classroom and was excited to watch their little minds explore the new curriculum. I saw that my students struggled more in Math and wanted to show them that even just learning Math, it doesn't have to become a burden. Science was fun to teach because the curriculum allowed for hands-on activities that I provided through instruction. The students liked seeing the change in Science and I often challenged them with questions to create hypotheses.

Students learn best by finding their own learning style. Everyone is different, so everyone learns in a different way and I believe that students should lead their own learning to gain success.

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 am qualified to tutor in this specific subject because I was taught through my college major program, Elementary Education, to teach based off of Common Core standards. I also completed my student teaching in a 3rd grade classroom and taught using Common Core standards. It is best taught through integration with other subjects as well as hands on learning, with personal experiences.

Elementary (K-6th)

I believe I am qualified for Elementary (K-6th) because I have recently graduated college, UNC Pembroke (North Carolina), with a Bachelor's in Elementary Education. I completed a full semester in a 3rd grade classroom as a student teacher. I also completed field experience work in various of grade levels in elementary schools ranging from Kindergarten to 6th grade.

Prealgebra

Previous math major in college. Helped younger students in my church or kids I babysit with their math homework.
