About Stephanie

I am a teacher with 19 years of experience. My main experience is in teaching grades 1-3. I am also a wife and mother of 3 boys in grades 5, 8, and 10. I understand the learning process from both the parent and the teachers perspective. I have seen the changes in education over the years and know how frustrating it can be to watch your child struggle with a concept that they are trying to learn.
As a teacher, I understand that every child has a different learning style. All children can learn, it is our job to find out the best way to teach each child. Children are also developmentally ready to learn at different stages, we must know when the child is developmentally ready to learn. I have many resources available to me to help children to learn. Having taught for 19 years, I have the experience and patience to help children to learn to read and be a success in school.

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 have been teaching in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District for 19 years. I was the Common Core Advocate for 2 years teaching how to use the Common Core to fellow teachers. I have been teaching with the common core since 2010.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been a certified teacher for the past 19 years. I have taught grades 1, concentrating in grades 1-3. My method for teaching and tutoring are similar. I believe in an individualized student approach. I work on areas that the student is struggling in while reviewing proficient and advanced areas to give the student affirmation in their learning experience.

Handwriting

I have been teaching grades 1 and 2 for the past 15 years. The students that I teach come to me with basic knowledge of writing and forming letters. I use different methods of teaching manuscript based on the child's needs, learning style and temperament.

Phonics

I have been teaching first and second grade for 15 years. I have a strong background in phonics. The children that I teach come to me with a limited about of Phonetic exposure. I use many different methods to teach phonics, sounding, Wilson, non sense words and phonics readers, to teach student phonetic skills.
