About Brenda

I am a recently certified Elementary Teacher (K-6), and will be completing my student teaching requirement in Haddon Heights this May. Upon completion of this requirement, I also anticipate receipt of a Middle School Math specialization certificate. I will be teaching full time starting this September, as a middle school Math teacher. Prior to student teaching, I had one year of substitute teaching experience and 13 years of corporate experience. I have raised two children, and I am actively involved in PTA activities and my town's Little League Association. I have not tutored before, but through field experience, substitute teaching, and working with my own children, I have gained enough experience to work with your child. I believe lessons should be engaging and relative to real life, so that students can relate and apply what they're learning.

I am very excited and eager to contribute, as a teacher and tutor, to children's academic, emotional, and social growth. I believe that in order for students to be successful, they need to be engaged in learning, feel secure and confident, and have support from their families beyond the classroom walls. Not every child excels in the classroom, not all students are interested in the same things, and not all students learn in the same ways. I think it's important for students to learn that sometimes they may fail, that it is okay to ask for help, and that with practice and guidance they can succeed. I would love to be able to help your star student's abilities shine.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 been through the Rutgers University teacher preparation program and am currently student teaching. I have completed several assignments in the past year that have been aligned with the NJ Common Core Standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am certified in Elementary Education (k-6), in all subjects. In order to receive this certification, I completed several courses in all elementary subject areas (math, english, social studies, and science). In addition, I have taken courses in developmental literacy and fundamental math for elementary teachers. I passed the Praxis test required for all subjects in May of 2014.

Microsoft Outlook

For 13 years, until 2014, I worked in a corporate environment that relied heavily on Microsoft Outlook. Not only was Outlook used for sending, receiving, and storing emails, but I also used it to schedule meetings on a regular basis. I am very familiar with setting up contacts, distribution lists, folders, and task lists in Outlook.

Phonics

I am certified in Elementary Education (k-6), in all subjects. In order to receive this certification, I completed several courses in all elementary subject areas (math, english, social studies, and science). In addition, I have taken courses in developmental literacy and fundamental math for elementary teachers. During my student teaching experience, I have been working with lower level students in reading groups, focusing on phonics much of the time.
