I have been in education for 16 years with teaching experience in first and second grade classrooms and ten years as a Reading Recovery teacher (which is a one-on-one program) and Title 1 Interventionist. I just recently taught two courses at the college level from January 2015-May 2015 (Teaching Reading in the Content Areas and Children's Literature). I have been to several Literacy conferences over the years to remain current in the best instructional practices and current trends in literacy. I also have experience teaching in after-school programs and tutoring students in the summers. I am currently certified in Early Childhood Education Pre-K to grade 3 and Elementary Education grades 1-6 with lifetime certification in Missouri. My Nevada certification is in process and I should receive it any day now. I did interview with the WCSD and made it through to the hiring pool but currently I am only looking for part-time work and/or subbing.
I am a mother to two boys; one is 19 and will be moving here soon to work with my fiance's construction business on Lake Tahoe and the other is 12 and he attends 7th grade. In my free time I love to read, craft, and cook. I love interior decorating, camping, and hanging out on our mountain with friends and family.
I am eager to motivate and teach students who may be struggling. Every child can learn and it is my honor to tap into each child's gifts. I offer a proven track record of commended performance teaching grades K-3 and collegiate level courses, with a passion for literacy and education and a commitment to optimizing student and school success.

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.
