About Theresa

Teaching is my passion and I especially enjoy tutoring in basic Math, Geometry, and Algebra I & II. I also enjoy teaching Reading and Language Arts. I am experienced in working with children, youth, and adults as well as students who have special needs (including gifted and learning disabilities). I make an effort & spend as much of my own time necessary to come prepared with a plan that will maximize the student's educational needs and goals. I am also very flexible and friendly and I try to make learning fun and meaningful. I am a licensed NC teacher with several years experience, I have worked as a tutor for Huntington Learning Center and privately as a tutor for several years. Teaching is my passion and I especially enjoy tutoring in basic Math, Geometry, and Algebra I & II. I also enjoy teaching Read more

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

ADD/ADHD

I am a licensed elementary education with training in ADD/ADHD, as well as all areas of special education, which all recently licensed teachers must be trained in these areas. I also have worked for 5 years as a volunteer at Camp Carroll for handicapped kids, have extensively tutored a first grader with ADHD, a high school student with ADD and have nannied for many families with children who have ADD and/or ADHD. I also worked for Huntington Learning Center's NCLB after school program with students who have ADD/ADHD.

Autism

I am a licensed elementary education with training in all areas of special education, as all recently licensed teachers must be trained in these areas. I also have worked for 5 years as a volunteer at Camp Carroll for handicapped kids, including working 1:1 with one of the preschoolers with Autism and teaching swimming lessons to several of the kids with Autism. I worked as a nanny for a family with a 12 y/o girl who had Autism for 1 year. I've worked as a substitute aide in the public school system, working 1:1 with a 4th grader with Autism. I also have a cousin, with whom I am quite close, who has Aspergers syndrome, which is an Autism spectrum disorder.

Bible Studies

I have a degree from Valley Forge Christian college, where I excelled in the following courses: New Testament, Old Testament, Biblical Languages, Intro to Christian Thought, Daniel & Revelation, Biblical Interpretation, Christian Living, Biblical Theology, Hermeneutics, Foundations of Biblical Preaching, Minister of Youth, Intro to youth ministry, and AG Church Doctrine & History. I have completed the 3-step (about our church/bible knowledge/being a leader in church) courses at both my home church in Philadelphia and my new home church in Wilmington. I did youth ministry for 5 years, and have lead a women's bible study for the past 2 years. I continue to learn in this area.

Drawing

I am a licensed elementary education with training in all areas of Art, including drawing. I taught an Art drawing class for approximately 25 5th - 7th graders during my Jr. year of college at a co-op called Living Bridges. Since then, I have privately tutored students in drawing. Additionally, my best friend is an accomplished artist, and is always giving me tips!

Elementary (K-6th)

I hold a B.S. in Elementary Education and am licensed in the state of NC as an Elementary Education (K-6) teacher.

Phonics

I am a licensed Elementary Education teacher. My schooling included learning how to teach Phonics in Reading and Language Arts. I also grew up learning to read by the Phonics method.

Praxis

I have an NC teaching license and a bachelors of science in Elementary Education. I have taken the Praxis and passed with very high scores the first time, every time. I have already tutored Praxis students who had failed the Praxis, and after tutoring with me, they passed the Praxis.

Religion

I am a graduate of Valley Forge Christian college, where I studied the history of the Church. I also studied World religions at a secular university.

Special Needs

I am a licensed teacher who works in an EC classroom. I have been working with special needs students since I was a volunteer at a summer camp when I was 11 years old. Since then, I have taught special needs students in both public and private schools, as well as tutoring over a dozen individual students with special needs ranging from having diagnosis on the autism spectrum to students who had ADD/ADHD. I have worked with students with Learning Disabilities, physical disabilities, inc. MS, Downs syndrome, and those who were partially deaf. I have worked with many, many students with IEP's and I helped my friend get one for her son.

I am also considering a Masters Degree in some field of Special Education.

Study Skills

I have been working as a teacher and tutor for over 10 years, an intricate part of which involves helping students develop good study skills. I have helped HS students improve SAT/ACT scores through incorporating good study habits and test taking skills. I have worked with a learning center's after-school program, which is focused on helping students achieve good grades through developing good study habits.

Swimming

I grew up swimming every day during the summers and took swimming lessons at the local YMCA each winter. As a teen, I had completed every level of swimming lessons and moved on to becoming a lifeguard. I teach swimming lessons for free to both children and adults that swim at the local pool that I go to. As a youth I taught my grandmother how to swim. I taught several of my friends how to swim, and several of my friend's children. I have been paid for swimming instructions privately. I am certified in both adult and child & infant CPR and rescue breathing through the YMCA and later through the American Red Cross.
