Hello! Teaching is near and dear to my heart!!!!! I have a Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education. In addition to a Bachelor of Science, I also have a Bachelor of Arts in Professional English. Recently, I earned my Masters in educational leadership. Once obtaining my undergraduate degrees, I spent time teaching kindergarten for several years. During my time as a teacher, I won numerous awards for my skills including: A 4 time nomination for Teacher of the Year, Teacher of the Year for my elementary school, a district teaching award for helping struggling students excel,and being named the Top Teacher of the Year in my school district. Teaching, helping, and preparing young children for success is my passion!!!!!
I specialize in tutoring primary students in preschool to second grade. My areas of focus pertain to such things as early literacy skills, phonological awareness, letter-sound relationships, vocabulary, reading, reading comprehension, handwriting, writing, elementary math, and kindergarten preparation. My approach to teaching involves having essential learning objectives, relevant connections, a strategic mini-lesson, and student engagement. Since students learn by doing, my lessons are designed for students to actively manipulate objects and visuals based on the concept being taught.
Not only do I hold myself to high expectations, but I hold my students to high expectations. With this in mind, I provide data specific feedback to parents based on ongoing assessments. I also like to conduct conferences with parents concerning their child's growth, areas of concern, and areas to target.
Although I am pretty flexible with my schedule, I do request that cancellations be made within 24 hours of the scheduled date for tutoring. I prefer to tutor in reserved library rooms; however, I am open to traveling and meeting students at a location that is convenient and accessible.
I look forward to helping students be their best and do their best! Don't delay, let's start our tutoring relationship today!

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.
I am a certified and licensed elementary teacher in the state of N.C. I have a bachelor's degree in elementary education. I was also the Lead teacher on grade levels in which I taught.
As a teacher, I was trained in the program, "Handwriting Without Tears." Additionally, I have taught the verbal path of letters to young students for 10 plus years.
During my years of teaching, I attended numerous hours of training sessions on how to teach phonics. I was trained specifically in the model created by Gay Su Pinnell and Irene C. Fountas. As a result, I have 10 plus years of experience in the classroom setting and in the private tutoring sector with this skill.
