About Tara

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.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I graduated from Rhode Island College in 2010 with a teaching degree Grades 1-6. I have been teaching Grade One since then.

Elementary Math

I have been teaching Grade One for the Providence School Department over the past five years, including math. I graduated with a Elementary Education degree, have an up to date teaching certificate and am currently enrolled in graduate courses at Rhode Island College. At an Elementary School I not only teach but offer tutoring after school to any students in need.

Handwriting

As a Grade One teacher, handwriting is an academic aspect that I entangle and infuse in all academic areas. I recently have been trained in a handwriting program called Handwriting Without Tears and obtained the materials to use with any needed children.

Phonics

In my first grade classroom I use the program Reading Street to teach phonics. I also have many activities and games to go along with certain skills.
