About Vance

I have a degree in International Studies from Ohio Wesleyan University. I have been an educator for my entire adult life (10+ years) and started in an effort to give back to the community. In college I was on the Dean's List while engaging in extracurricular activities such as mentoring with Bishop Buddies and Big Brothers Big Sisters of America, soccer, and studying abroad - where I taught English as a Second Language.

I have been teaching elementary math since 2006 and specialize in Common Core and Singaporean Method mathematics. Math is a language just like English or Japanese. To demystify math it’s important that a student understands that 2+2=4 but they also understand “how” it equals 4. I take nothing for granted and ensure students are not just memorizing theorems and rules but they are gaining fluency in mathematics the language.

Trained in the Orton-Gillingham literacy teaching methodology, I specialize in phonemic and grapheme awareness, as well as multi-sensory strategies to teach reading, writing, and spelling. My English teaching experience extends to Japan, Uganda as well as with children and adults with learning disabilities.

As a tutor I capitalize on children’s innate zeal for learning in a focused, interactive, and safe environment with a curriculum based on each child's current aptitude. Because my curriculums are tailored to address the educational needs of each student, I can guarantee a raise in reading level and / or grades in just 4 weeks time. Contact me now to learn more about how I develop curriculums specifically suited for your child at an affordable cost.
