I am an elementary teacher and my passion is teaching, so I love tutoring students and helping them grow even more outside of the classroom. I hold a bachelor's degree in elementary education, and I am certified as a K-6 teacher. I have been teaching for 5 years and enjoy helping students one on one outside of the classroom.
I am able to tutor in all academic areas for elementary students, but I specialize in literacy and mathematics. I taught at a high performing school for several years (which was top 10 in the state), and all of my Kindergarten students were able to read and write at a 1st or 2nd grade level at the end of the year. I have a "whatever it takes" attitude, and I will customize my instruction to meet the needs of your student.
I hold high expectations for students and I believe that every student has the capabilities to be successful. In my years of teaching, all of my students were able to read above grade level, and I always ensure that I create a program that meets the needs of each individual child and how they learn.
I know that students learn in different ways. There may be a method that works well for one student, but does not work well for another student. I make sure to learn about each child individually to see how they learn so that I am able to meet their needs.
I believe that students need to master foundational skills, and then they will be successful. I also believe it is important to be collecting data on students on a daily basis in order to guide instruction. By collecting data, I am able to see which areas students need extra assistance to ensure they successfully achieve.
Please feel free to contact me further to discuss scheduling and to learn more about my methods of teaching, and how I can ensure your child will be successful.

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 currently a Kindergarten teacher and hold my bachelor's of arts in Elementary Education (K-6). I have 5 years of teaching experience and have also taught first grade in addition to Kindergarten. I have tutored students who need extra assistance after school and in the morning. While completing my undergraduate degree, I tutored Kindergarteners once a week.
I am a Kindergarten teacher and one of the biggest foundational skills that must be mastered by the end of Kindergarten is handwriting. I have worked with students individually and as a whole class on proper letter formation and had students practice writing neatly. I believe students must be shown how to correctly write each letter and then must practice by tracing letters and then doing it on their own.
I currently teach Kindergarten and have also taught First Grade in the past. Phonics are a key skill that needs to be mastered by early readers. In previous years of tutoring and teaching, my students have always been at or above grade level in reading due to the strong phonics instruction I have provided.
