About Victoria

I am an Elementary School teacher who has taught first, second, and fifth grade. I have also worked as a Reading Interventionist that works specifically with students who have reading difficulties. I use a variety of instructional methods and provide individualized instruction based on each child's needs. With my experience in multiple grade levels, I can reach a spectrum of learners.

I have seven years of teaching experience altogether, many of those years in which I also tutored after school. Teaching reading has been my passion since I first learned that I wanted to become a teacher. I believe that children need a solid foundation in phonics and comprehension skills in order to be successful in all subject areas in school. Reading effects all other subjects.

I understand that a huge weakness in children today is Vocabulary. In order for students to become better readers, they need time in text. Using context to figure out unknown words is a key strategy that helps overall comprehension.

I have taught Common Core Standards for four years.

My concentration during my undergraduate degree was Reading. I have received North Carolina Reading Foundations training, and have 7 years of reading teaching experience overall.

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.

Common Core

I have taught Common Core standards for the past four years in three different school districts. I received extensive training the year before first implementation. I use these standards to create lessons, assessments, and connect reading foundational skills in my instruction of individual students. I use my data from my assessments to determine my next steps.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught elementary grades for seven years. These grades include first, second, and fifth grades. I also was a Reading Interventionist for a year. I taught all subjects in grades first and second. In fifth, I am teaching ELA and Social Studies.

Phonics

I have taught primary grades where students require a strong foundation in phonics. I have also been successful with teaching older students phonics that they may have difficulty with utilizing. Teaching children to read is a strength through the combination of phonics and other word attack strategies.
