About Sidney

I am a current college senior about to finish up my Bachelors Degree in Education. I have over 200 hours of student teaching practice and am well versed in all subject areas ranging from grades 1-4. I am also very familiar with the Common Core and have plenty of practice creating lessons that align to the standards. All throughout high school I was a nanny and a tutor, so I also have plenty of practice with children outside of a school setting.

I have a very fresh and fun approach to learning and emphasis understanding through inquiry and experience versus rote memorization. Being able to watch a child's basic learning blossom into a rich, deeper understanding is something that I strive to accomplish with any of my students. To accomplish this it is important to understand that child as a whole and teach to their level of understanding. Tutoring is a great way to get that one on one attention your child needs to create that rich understanding that will benefit them throughout their school years.

I have taken three math classes in the past two years, all geared towards being able to teach elementary mathematics in new ways that are easy for each child to understand.

In regards to a language arts curriculum, I have been trained through a program called "Words Their Way" which looks at reading, spelling, and phonic as parts of a whole that are learned best when taught together.

I have been taught to teach through inquiry and integration and have seen the benefits that come with this approach to learning firsthand. Being able to explore a topic on their own really helps set up a platform that allows the teacher to build upon what they already know or have observed.

As mentioned above, I use a program called "Words Their Way" to integrate phonics along with reading and spelling in order to help students understand that the way words work are all connected.

If you would like help bolstering your skills and getting ahead of the game by learning content in new and exciting ways, please feel free to contact me to set up a session or for any further questions. I am always excited to help students learn and will do my best to respond right away.
