About Candice

I thrive on helping students succeed. For the past thirteen years it has been my pleasure to see students regain confidence in themselves by overcoming academic challenges in reading, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I and Geometry.

I am currently a classroom teacher in a public school setting. I am certified to teach grades Pre-Kindergarten to Eighth Grade. I am highly qualified to teach Middle School Math. I really enjoy one-on-one instruction with students because I can focus on the specific needs of the student and their unique learning style.

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.

Bible Studies

I have read the entire Bible several times and memorized several passages. I led Bible studies in a youth detention center with students that were mostly Bible illiterate for three years. I also started and led a Bible study in a nursing home which consisted of groups of five to fifteen members. I am experienced in designing discussion questions and helping people to comprehend difficult concepts by cross-referencing.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am Highly Qualified by the State of NJ to teach Elementary core subject areas: Math, Social Studies, Reading, and Science.

Elementary Math

I have had success teaching various elementary and middle school math concepts such as number theory, addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, factorization, fractions, decimals, exponents, percentages, integers, and solving word problems and equations.

Phonics

I have experience as a certified teacher, teaching Kindergarten for three years and First grade for two years. I successfully taught many students to read with both phonics-based programs such as Abeka and Houghton-Mifflin curriculum, as well as with whole language-based curriculum.

Prealgebra

I have been teaching for seven years in the classroom. I have experience with teaching students of different abilities in Pre-Algebra. I am a certified Middle School Mathematics teacher in the state of NJ.

Reading

I have experience teaching both whole language and phonics based curriculum. I value vocabulary development and teaching students how to respond to text through writing in order to ensure increase of comprehension skills and fluency scores.
