##### About Deedee

I am a patient, well organized elementary education tutor with 8+years of teaching experience. I strive to instill a love of learning through engaging lessons and enthusiasm of content. Each child learns differently and differentiation does not have to be formal. It is all about the approach as each student is unique. Tutoring is a wonderful way to build upon current skills, learn new strategies to become better students, improve morale within the classroom setting and to keep the momentum going. My students' success is tremendously important to me and I make it my #1 priority.

I am a mom as well, who looks at each student as someone else's child. I didn't realize how important that was from a teaching standpoint until I became a mother. Students need extra support at times and I feel that tutoring provides a great avenue for building self esteem, acquiring new strategies and approaches to tackle those challenging moments within the classroom and to have that one-on-one support and encouragement to ultimately try their very best and succeed! It truly does go a long way for a student's academic outlook. I provide the utmost care, solid academic support and direct communication with the family to develop the appropriate plan for their child. I look forward to working with you!

Math can be intimidating at times but by using the appropriate approach, incorporating engaging, fun lessons and learning to develop various strategies, math can be fun! Math concepts must have real life connections in order to make them applicable and be fully understood by the student. By using manipulatives, technology integration when appropriate and applying various learning strategies to grasp each concept, my students come away with a new outlook on math.

Reading opens the door to a new world. Early readers must be excited to read and develop the necessary strategies to "break down" and simplify the process (of reading). Students will be encouraged to think "outside the box" and be challenged through higher level thinking questioning and build upon comprehension skills using various techniques.

I have 8+ years experience teaching elementary education and have taught all subject areas. I have had many students with IEPs and special needs, and integrate technology whenever possible as it's such an important part of our everyday lives.

I have a background in business and taught technology in grades 1 through 8 so I enjoy incorporating technology when possible. I use Microsoft Office: Word, PowerPoint, Excel, iMovie, and various educational online tools and websites to enhance content and review. Students use these programs to create projects for various subject areas.

I am available most weekday evenings 5pm-8pm and am flexible on the weekends. I look forward to working with you and your child to promote their overall success and well being in and out of the classroom!!
