I have a BSE in Early Childhood Education. I have experience teaching Kindergarten, as well as student teaching in a First grade classroom. Teaching is my passion, and my education and training has allowed me to be a great mentor to young children. I thoroughly enjoy helping students learn and witness the "lightbulb" go off! I absolutely love being able to make a difference in a child's life! Being a classroom teacher, I understand that every child learns differently and at a different pace and it is never good to compare or hold every 6 year old at the exact same expectation. I do, however, believe in challenging students to allow them to set high standards for themselves, which in turn help them gain confidence.
I know kids love to move and have a difficult time sitting still. So, I LOVE to teach using fun, interactive ways - in my classroom, I always incorporated several games to teach different skills. Games are also a great way for children to practice different skills or even the same skill they might be struggling with, without realizing that they are even learning! One of the best parts of tutoring is being able to work one-on-one with a child to provide a true individualized learning experience. I used different learning strategies and incorporate several different methods!
I believe in building a strong foundation of number sense. Without a good understanding of number sense, it can be very difficult for children to comprehend and carry out advanced math skills. I like to play games with students that are hands on and use visual strategies to help them understand numbers and make it really fun!
When I taught Kindergarten, I had students who came in my classroom at all different levels - some knowing only their letters, some knowing letter sounds, and some understanding the concept of how words are formed. At the end of the year, every student left reading fluently. I know how to break down the reading process - the importance of phonemic awareness, phonic exercises, and reading strategies. I like to use your child's environment and several different strategies to build confidence which in turn helps them stay positive and keep working hard.
I have a BSE and taught Kindergarten, as well as student taught in First grade. I understand the pace and process that is needed for students to learn the basic fundamentals and foundations of the English language and math. I believe in using several different ways to teach students, such as visual, auditory, and kinesthetic learning, to allow every child the opportunity to succeed. I like to provide a challenge and teach kids to set high standards for themselves. I believe in using fun and interactive methods for kids to learn so they never realize they're "learning"!
I have taught phonics in PreK and Kindergarten. I understand the importance of using songs and actions to help students remember the letter sounds, and then breaking down the reading process to allow them to truly understand the concept of each individual letter sound which is combined with other letter sounds to create words, which can then be achieved and moved through at each individual child's pace.
I have a passion for teaching and for giving children the opportunity to succeed. I understand that each child learns in a different way and at a different pace, and the importance of being patient and using different strategies to allow them to succeed at the highest level! I absolutely love children and love love love seeing the "AH-HA" moment! My education, training, and professional experience really allows me to teach and work with your child to the best of their ability! I have a BSE in Early Childhood Education.

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.
