I am April W., a current graduate student in the Curry School of Education at the University of Virginia. I completed my Bachelors of Arts in History from UVA last year, and will graduate in the Spring with my Master of Teaching. I am now done with my Teaching Associateship, where I taught 7th grade US History and 8th grade Government in Albemarle County.
Due to my Teaching Associateship and past teaching placements from the Curry School of Education, I have recent experience working with children, including children with special needs. Two of my 7th grade classrooms were collaborative classrooms, where several students had special needs, accommodations, and IEPs. Before my Teaching Associateship, I served as a student teacher. Much like my Teaching Associateship, I was a student teacher in a 7th grade US History class. I also have recently served as an AVID tutor and a tutor for English Language Learners. Due to these tutoring experiences, I have helped students learn several subjects, including social studies, math, Spanish, chemistry, and writing.
As reflected by the Master of Teaching degree that I am currently working on, I am extremely passionate about working with students and helping students learn. I will soon be applying to teaching jobs, and hopefully will begin teaching full time in August 2014. However, I do plan to continue tutoring in addition to being a classroom teacher. As a teacher, I believe that all students can learn, and I would love to tutor in order to help students succeed.

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.
As a college cheerleader and a former gymnast, I have experience with fitness. My college cheerleading program afforded me the opportunity to work with several different work out plans to stay in shape. I also have a lot of experience with working out and staying in shape independently of my sport affiliation.
