About Holly

Hi,

I am excited to do some one on one tutoring! Currently, I am an administrator for a private school. However, I have been an educator for 21 years for the same public school system. I have taught every elementary grade level and every model of special education. I taught grades 3, 4, 5 as a regular education teacher and taught K-2 level as a special needs teacher. I am familiar with the various curriculums and Common Core at each of these levels.

Within this time frame, I have also been very active in the school community besides the classroom. This ranges from sitting on committees to proving professional development for my colleagues. I feel this has made me a well-rounded educator.
With having all this experience under my belt, I can provide sound CCSS lessons with the right touch of individualized instruction.

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)

In my 19 years of teaching, I have taught every grade at the elementary level. I taught grades 3, 4, 5 as a regular education teacher and taught K-2 level as a special needs teacher. I am familiar with the various curriculums and Common Core at each of these levels. I have access to materials that will be needed to teach corresponding lessons as well.

Phonics

I have been trained by the AFT (American Federation of Teachers) to disseminate professional development in the area of Beginning Reading to my colleagues. Within this research-based program, I teach about all five areas of reading: Phonemic Awareness, Phonics, Vocabulary, Fluency and Comprehension. Besides sharing the information, I have used the strategies in my own classroom.

Study Skills

As part of my job as an 8th grade intensive resource teacher, I work with students who are need of learning appropriate study skills. Over the past thee years, i have researched and adopted my own ideas that have helped my students become more academically successful. These ideas include: test taking skills, organizational skills, and study habits.
