About Theresa

Hello to All! I am a fun, outgoing, loving life, mother of two boys ages 14 and 16, a wife of 23 years, and a certified Elementary Teacher. I substitute teach and had home schooled my older son through the 8th and 9th grade in his main academic subjects.I also tutor various students in both academics as well as the trumpet.

I love to read especially series that are full of adventure, myths and magic. My favorite series I have read are from Authors Rich Riordan, Angie Sage, Stephanie Meyers, Michael Scott, Suzanne Collins and there are more. I enjoy crocheting, quilting, and especially scrap booking. Almost quarterly, friends of mine come for a long weekend visit to scrapbook. We share ideas, converse and complete several memorable pages for our families to enjoy. It is always nice to get together with friends for coffee and catch up on life.

My family and I love to go camping. Every year we spend a week in Cape May, NJ at a wonderful campground. This trip many family members join us so we get to spend quality time with parents, grand parents, aunts and uncles as well as relaxing on the beach, visiting museums, walking the boards in Wild Wood, and hanging out at the campground in the pool, hot tub or around the campfire. As a family, we also like to spend time together watching a good movie, playing a game and visiting historical places like Gettysburg.

Teaching children has always been a passion of mine. I enjoy the interaction with the students, helping them to learn something new and apply it to what they already know. I am a firm believer that all students deserve the chance at a good education and that teachers should make themselves available to help all their students however they can. Not everyone learns the same way or at the same pace, and teachers should adjust accordingly. My hope for you is that I can be the help you need and give you the extra edge you need to be successful.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified elementary teacher. I have my state certification and B.S. degree in elementary education. Along with my student teaching I have been a substitute teacher for the ELCO School District since 2009.

Elementary Math

Through my teaching certification and the classes I took to achieve my certification I have the ability to teach elementary math as well as tutor those who struggle with math.

Reading

I am certified to teach elementary students. Every subject requires reading and comprehension. I understand how fluency affects reading comprehension and retelling as well as writing. Finding where a students reading level is and their fluency in reading aids in devising a plan to help them improve in reading. Reading and comprehension are so important because it affects how students do in all subject areas.

Trumpet

I have been playing the trumpet for 32 years. I currently have students that I teach privately. In high school, I played in the Marching Band, concert Band, Symphonic Band, Jazz Band, Orchestra, Pit Band for musicals and Pit Band for Choir.
