About Tamara

Hello! Thanks for considering me for a tutor! I am a teacher, licensed to teach Pre-kindergarten through third grade, so my specialty is general education. I taught Pre-kindergarten for three years, and this is my fifth year teaching kindergarten. I will assist you in math, science, social studies, or reading/language arts. I love to make learning hands-on, so we will use stories, manipulatives, games or whatever it takes for you to learn that concept. I'm firm but fair.
The library is a great place for studying. The Cleveland Public Library main branch is closest and in my opinion the best, so I would prefer to meet you there. However, we can meet at any branch within five miles. Mom can browse for books, use the computers or run errands while we study. The time will fly! If you need to cancel it's no problem, just give me at least one hour's notice. Send me an email to set up your free consultation today!

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

I received the "Crosswalks" training that led to the Common Core (2011). I have used the Common Core in my kindergarten class ever since.

Elementary (K-6th)

I taught kindergarten for five years, first grade for one year and have tutored students up to 5th grade. I write and implement lessons based on the common core. I research and create activities to target fundamental skills students need.

ESL/ESOL

I have assisted ESL/ESOL adults in writing papers and taking tests.

Handwriting

While working on my Bachelor's at Baldwin-Wallace College, I was required to take the Zaner-Bloser course for handwriting. I am certified to teach it. I have done so for 10 years.

Phonics

I teach kindergarten, and am licensed to teach kindergarten through third grade. Each year I teach my students a "Who Let the Letters Out" chant. They practice using this knowledge in the Morning Message. They catch on in no time. I also have a degree in Early Childhood Education from Baldwin-Wallace College.

Reading

I have a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education and a Reading Endorsement.
