About Molly

Hello! I am an experienced child and adult classroom teacher, and I also have experience with one-on-one tutoring. I am currently a PhD student in my research phase, and I live in Sandusky, Ohio. I am a published author with a new essay coming out later this year in a creative arts academic journal. I have worked with both children and adults in educational and social service settings. I tutored children in reading and writing during college on a volunteer basis, and I provided one-on-one tutoring in reading and spelling while I was an elementary school teacher. I taught 3rd-6th grade social studies and early elementary language arts at a small private school in Oxford, OH called The McGuffey Montessori School. Most recently, I taught botany, environmental science, and horticulture to adults through Danville Area Community College in Illinois. I am interested in tutoring children and adults who are looking to improve their reading and/or writing skills. I am also interested in helping children with elementary math, and working with those seeking ACT/SAT English prep. In addition, I am qualified to assist with botany, anthropology, horticulture, and environmental science, for this has been my focus in my graduate studies.

Here's a bit of my teaching philosophy:

The first step in any educational setting is to make others comfortable and less anxious about learning, which I believe is the foundation for an exceptional tutoring experience. This allows for better knowledge transfer between the teacher and student. Lightheartedness and humor is a must in all of my tutoring and classroom experiences. In addition, I believe in empowering students to become independent learners by setting clear and obtainable study goals, and helping them work through problems in ways that allow them to feel in charge of their own learning process.

I believe in using experiential activities in order to help children and adults with elementary math including games and problem solving stories that relate to their lives. The more we relate math to our daily lives, the easier it is to understand. In addition, I would work closely with parents to make sure the information I teach coincides with school system requirements for the student so that s/he can feel as prepared as possible for the classroom.

I am always looking for new students, so please don't hesitate to contact me. I look forward to meeting you!
