I have been in elementary education for 15 years in various forms, from directing camp programs to teaching in the classroom. For almost ten years, I have taught 4th grade in an independent school, specializing in boys' education. My main classroom experience is in grades 3-5, however, I currently homeschool my daughter in kindergarten and I'm very knowledgable of all grade/skill levels. I tutor students in all academic areas from K-6 for both enrichment and support.
I strongly believe in a holistic approach to education. I feel as if many children who struggle in a traditional school setting do so because their learning style is not being honored. My educational philosophy is very Montessori-based and I believe in meeting the child where they are in order to fully have them invest in their own education. My main priority with tutoring is to boost confidence, whether it is for a struggling child or one who needs to be enriched.

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.
