Rhode Island College (Early Childhood Edu.)
Hello! My name is Alexandria, I graduated from Rhode Island College in May of 2015 with a Bachelors degree in Early Childhood Education. Over the last few years I gained experience in working with children from infants to 12 years in a childhood center and after school program. Currently, I am working as a Kindergarten and First grade Reading tutor in Killingly Connecticut, as well as a substitute teacher for grades K-5 in Cranston, Warwick, and Smithfield. As a tutor I enjoy helping students achieve their potential and adapt students to their individual needs. I find tutoring extremely rewarding, I enjoy interacting with students and building strong relationships. Teaching is a very rewarding profession, and I especially enjoy inspiring students to achieve their best!
As an educator I have become extremely knowledgeable about the Common Core Standards. I always present rigorous strategy lessons to meet the needs of individual students. As a reading tutor it is my job to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of struggling learners as well as students with disabilities. I focus on the positive and build on the strengths of my students. I believe all my students can learn and achieve great success with positive and motivating support.
I believe teaching young minds is a task that is full of excitement, wonder, and joy. I strongly believe that all children are capable of learning, if they have the proper motivation and direction from their teachers. Learning should be fun and exciting. For myself, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth through a variety of ways. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them. Hello!

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.
