Franciscan University of Steubenville
I am a Second Grade teacher and have been one for 5 years. Before becoming a teacher, I attended Franciscan University where I completed Student Teaching in a First Grade classroom, as well as completed Field Experiences in Kindergarten, Second, and Fourth Grades. Along with being a full time student, I also worked at a day care nearby and as a nanny in the summers. To say that I have spent my entire life around children is not an exaggeration. My passion is taking care of and teaching young children.
Now, as a teacher, there's nothing more rewarding than seeing the "aha" look on my students' faces. I truly enjoy going in to work everyday knowing that my students will leave me a few hours later having learned something completely new. As a child I always loved school, even though some subjects might not have come too easily to me. Being able to instill the same love and passion for learning to my own students has been a wonderful blessing...one that I hope to pass on to your child.
Whether it is teaching him/her a completely new subject, reinforcing some newly learned skills, or preparing him/her for a test, I know that I can make it a fun and beneficial experience.
I differentiate all of my lessons in order to meet the needs of all my students.
I attend Reading and Writing workshops every year in order to learn of new and fun way to create a strong foundation for reading.
I am certified in two states (K-6).

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.
