I believe in teaching to every student individually. To me, a tutor is much more than an educator but also a mentor and friend to their students. I am fulfilled by the smiles that show up on a student’s face when they finally “click” when learning a new concept. I am confident that my skills and experience can help your child reach high levels of achievement. I strive to provide achievement in all aspects of a young learner’s life whether that is academic, socially and or emotionally. In my opinion, building a student’s self-esteem is crucial for success and plan to incorporate that into each and every session.
In addition to completing an undergraduate degree this year, I served as a tutor, substitute and had the opportunity to lead a workshop for early childhood education juniors on utilizing SMARTBOARD technology in the classroom. During student teaching, I applied my knowledge in differentiating instruction to a diverse group of learners. My differentiating was guided by assessments. I worked collaboratively to organize differentiated guided reading and math groups based on NWEA testing results, as well as administered running records, Developmental Reading Assessments, and Words their Way sight word assessments. While assuming full responsibility for planning and teaching across content area.
I have experience in conducting small group literacy intervention programs to bring students up to benchmark standards as well as, creating activities involving technology and used rubrics to assess students learning outcomes. One of my strengths as an educator is incorporating technology into learning. In my experience, students learn most when having fun! Technology allows children to explore in a new fun and exciting way!
I am familiar with the enVisionMATH program aligned to the Common Core. I have administered running records and Developmental Reading Assessment to assess reading levels. As well as, planned individualized mini-lessons based on results of running records.
I performed inquiry-based science lessons using National Geographic kits.
I try to be flexible with time. While I do have a 24-hour cancelation policy, I offer makeup classes.

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.
I have spent a semester student teaching, where I aligned each lesson to Common Core standards. I have passed praxis 1, praxis 2, and praxis 3, allowing me to apply for certification in the state of Rhode Island. I am currently in the process of taking my MTEL tests for the state of MA in hopes of being a certified teacher in both RI and MA.
