About Darrah

As an elementary teacher for more than seven years, it has been my honor to witness the spark and excitement of children learning new things about themselves in the world around them. However, many times I've noticed children who struggle with one skill or a set of skills. That is where real teaching comes in. I have been a kindergarten/1st-grade teacher for five years and have been at the forefront for many children to learn reading, writing, and math for the first time. It is my pleasure to give children the encouragement, support, and tools they need in order to be more confident, successful, and happy.

I come equipped with a breadth of teacher knowledge along with a bubbly personality. I like to do a lot of hands on learning, games, and technology to support students' needs and I think when kids are engaged and having fun, they're learning way more!

Teaching is my passion and it's an honor to help any child feel successful. I am looking forward to hearing from you and to witness the sparks together!

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

In my district, the curriculum is common core aligned. I am very familiar with the common core as part of the curriculum committee.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my teacher certification for grades K-5 from St. Peter's University, where I also received my Masters degree in teaching. I have had 7+ years experience teaching in theses grades, but most of my experience has been in Kindergarten and First grade.

Phonics

I have been teaching phonics and trained through a variety of programs including The Wilson Fundations program and Words Their Way. I tutor for phonics during the school year for students who are struggling in grades K-3 at lunch and have been doing that for 2 years.
