About Teresa

Hello, I'm an elementary school teacher who has experience in teaching all grades (1-5) and levels of students. Over the past 5 years I've had several tutoring students and enjoy seeing the academic growth a student can achieve in a one-to-one environment. I am proficient In and use a variety of instructional techniques to engage learners of all abilities. I'm well-versed in how to use technology to enhance the learning experience as well. I've attended several technology classes to further my knowledge and was asked to present at a conference the unique ways I've used technology in my own classroom.

My educational philosophy centers around Vygotsky's ideas of serving as a guide to instruction and scaffolding learners to become independent learners. It's important that students tackle difficult concepts and the teacher serve as a guide to lead them to new understanding. When students learn the skills of independent, problem-solving thinking they have a sense of accomplishment that stays with them throughout their lifetime.

I do have a two hour cancellation policy, but will be happy to schedule make up classes in the event of a cancellation. I realize how busy families are and try to accommodate this.

I look forward to hearing from you and going on a learning adventure with your child !

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.

Dyslexia

As a certified elementary teacher, I have taught inclusion classrooms in which the student disabilities included ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, and various disorder on the autism spectrum.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified Elementary teacher. I have a valid license in both Georgia and Tennessee. I am currently working in an elementary school in Dalton, GA. I have an MEd in elementary education as well as an EdS in brain-based learning strategies.

Elementary Math

I am a certified elementary school teacher with 12 years teaching experience. I've taught all subjects in grades 2-5. I currently teach 4th grade. I've also taught an intervention math class and have worked in after school tutoring programs teaching math. The district in which I work has sent all teachers to numerous math training classes in order to provide us with additional strategies to assist struggling learners.

Phonics

As an elementary certified teacher I have been trained in reading skills both through my teacher preparation education as well as through the district in which I'm currently employed. I've been trained on balanced literacy, specifically the Fountas and Pinnel approach to reading, writing, and word study (phonics). I have experience teaching reading to struggling students as well as to second language learners. I've been teaching since 2006.
