Bio

I have been teaching first grade the Providence School Department for the past five years. In the past I have tutored students in reading, handwriting, and math. I am currently working on getting my masters in leadership administration. Tutoring is a great opportunity for children who struggle academically to receive one-on-one attention on the skills they need to help them succeed.

I have been teaching first grade the Providence School Department for the past five years. In the past I have tutored students in reading, handwriting, and math. I am currently working on getting my masters in leadership administration. Tutoring is a great opportunity for children who struggle academically to receive one-on-one attention on the skills they need to help them succeed.

I am trained in teaching grade one common core state standards. I own many math manipulatives that will help students learn hands on and help them set the foundation towards addition and subtraction skills. Once students feel confident in their addition/subtract fluency they can begin learning strategies to solve word problems.

Not only is teaching reading important but so is the mindset that reading is fun! If students WANT to learn how to read, it makes the drive to success that much easier. Students first need to become familiar with letter representation and sounds. Once they have that mastered, they can begin blending and letter segmentation.

I have been trained in a program called Handwriting without tears. This program teaches writing in a highly engaged manner starting with letter formation.

I teach phonics on a daily basis and have many "tricks", games, and practice activities to help students gain insight.

As a student, I struggled in grade school myself. Teaching and tutoring allows me to give back and help others.
