About Terri

I have spent the last 28 years teaching in k-5 classrooms in the West Chester Area School District. Tutoring allows me to focus on what my individual student needs. I am able to tailor each lesson and customize activities to the learning style of each individual child. The time I have spent tutoring is quality learning and teaching time and with fewer distractions than in a traditional classroom setting.

As a student, I did not like mathematics, but ironically, math is my favorite concept to teach! My mom was also a teacher and I was raised in a household where correct grammar was expected. Proper grammar in speech, and in written form, are crucial life skills. In addition to having had a classroom of 20+ students each year, I continue to tutor former students that are now in 6-8th grades. I have a thorough knowledge of all elementary content and have taught and tutored all subjects.

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 taught K-5 for 28 years, the last 3 included PA/PACC standards-based instruction. I continue to teach grades 6-8 and have tutored kids in grades 3-7 for the past 7 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary school, grades k-5, for the past 28 years. I tutor in all content areas through 8th grade. I provide many curriculum based materials and activities based on the needs of the child I am tutoring.

Elementary Math

I was an elementary math coach in addition to being a building math advocate for 11 years.

Handwriting

As a first and third grade teacher, I have taught handwriting, from Zaner-Bloser to D'Nealian, and also cursive for over 25 years. I incorporated daily writing in an elementary setting. The district in which I worked used the Handwriting Without Tears program.

Phonics

I taught first grade phonics for 14 years and continued with Project Read, through K-3. Most recently I've used Words Their Way and Megawords with my students.
