About Raechel

I have been teaching 5th grade for 15 years. I specialize in ELA and SS, specifically reading, writing, spelling, grammar, vocabulary and speaking. I also have experience in Mathematics. I have genuine love of reading and strive to pass that love on to my students. I get to know my students and their interests and allow them some choice in the books they read. Through conferencing and writing about what they are reading, students will improve their reading comprehension and their confidence in reading. I use both fiction and non-fiction texts in order to prepare students for all subjects. My students become thinkers; they learn to "think outside of the box" and learn to view things from other perspectives. I will assign homework with each session and challenge students without overwhelming them. Periodic evaluations will be given to show growth. I want the student to feel comfortable with me as someone who will help them to succeed and grow as a learner.

I have experience teaching learning support students as well as gifted students. I have also worked with autistic children and children with ADHD.

I try to be flexible, and do require notice of cancellation. I will do my best to reschedule any sessions missed. I am also a parent and know that life does get in the way sometimes! I like my sessions to be in a quiet place such as a local library, but the specific site can be determined at the time of service.

I look forward to working with you and your student!

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

Over the past 15 years I have worked with many students with ADHD. I also have 2 children who are diagnosed with ADHD.

Aspergers

Students with autism, specifically Asperger's, have been placed in my classroom and have found success. I enjoy working with students who have high intelligence but can't not always work well with others or in a group setting.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BS in Elementary Education and have been teaching for 15 years.

Handwriting

I have taught the mechanics of both print and cursive writing in my years of teaching.

Study Skills

Teaching 5th grade has given me the opportunity to instruct students on how to study for a test. I often find that up until this point in their education, students do not know how to study.
