I have worked with children in a variety of different ways. I started by working in Children's Church at my own church. I then moved to babysitting not only my younger sister, but other children. References from those parents are available upon request! I entered college in 2011 to earn my bachelors in Elementary Education and will graduate from Anderson University in December 2014 with my degree. Starting right after my freshman year of college, I started working at an after school care/summer camp. There, I was responsible for checking students’ homework, explaining homework, and ensuring student safety and fun. During the summer, I was a leader of a team where I was in charge of approximately 15-20 children. We traveled to field trips, had various fun days, including Hawaiian day and super hero day. Currently, I am finishing my field experience as a student teacher. I have taught all of the different subjects and have been left in charge of the classroom for a full 15 consecutive days.
I do require parents to be at home if tutoring at your house, or we are in a public place- for my safety and your peace of mind. I look forward to working with you and your student!

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.
During my time at college, I received training in proper handwriting. I also have had handwriting center for the classroom I am currently placed in. I have taught mini lessons to my students and guided them to neater handwriting. I believe handwriting is important.
I have worked within several classrooms that taught phonics. I have also created my own lessons that worked with phonics. I have worked with students doing homework and I have worked in the classroom. I have plenty of experience!
In high school, I took a public speaking course where I gained a lot of insight on the subject. During college, I gained more experience through several of my English courses. As a teacher, I am a public speaker everyday. I realize that public speaking is a phobia for some people. I struggled at the beginning of my public speaking journey, and I know how I overcame that fear. I believe that I can help other overcome that fear. I also know all of the rules to public speaking such as voice, appearance, and crowd.
