About Ericka

My love of teaching stems from a journey of lifelong learning. As a Certified Elementary Educator, I've obtained three college degrees: AAS in Computers, BBA in Business Administration: Management and a M.Ed. in Curriculum & Instruction: Reading. I have over 100 hours of professional development credits (CPDUs/CEUs). I've had the pleasure of teaching and tutoring hundreds of children for over 12 years. My mission is to help children develop confidence, improve learning skills, build good work habits and begin to achieve true potential by improving their grades. I position myself in the market as professional, knowledgeable in my field, flexible in my teaching style, patient with all ages of children, honest with parents/students, trustworthy, and reliable. I am focused on providing tutoring services with the highest levels of customer satisfaction and will do everything I can to meet and exceed your expectations.

I'm available in-person and online to offer K-8th grade students year-round tutoring of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in Elementary English Language Arts and Math. Pre and Post Assessments will be conducted to determine strengths and weaknesses and to document the progress students make during our tutoring sessions. I create independent lesson plans so that the student will stay ahead of the class or subjects/skills and close the gaps in what they are not grasping in school. My approach to learning is hands-on and individualized. I focus on the child's interests and strive to make learning fun, engaging and challenging. I create a strong bond with each child through support and trust.

The key to my success in tutoring is the ongoing communication between myself, students, parents and teachers.

I look forward to hearing from you. Know that you are entrusting your child's academic future to someone who is highly qualified to meet their needs.

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 am able to teach students using the ELA and Math Common Core standards because I had over 2 years of training to prepare me for the challenge even before my school was required to use them. I have been a teacher for over 10 years and have always had to follow teaching standards to help my students excel in their academic studies. I am continuously learning and growing everyday so that I can prepare my students for college and careers while teaching with the Common Core standards.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am qualified to tutor Elementary K-6th subjects because I'm an Early Childhood Education Certified Teacher with over 10 years of classroom experience. I have a proven track record and have taught every core academic subject in the school systems. Also, in my years as an Educator, I have tutored children after school in grades K-8th. My methods of tutoring include being able to individualize my student's unique style of learning, actively listening and probing, giving students more time to complete tasks with manageable steps, and using multi-sensory materials to keep them engaged.

English

English is a very important subject to learn and I have had the pleasure of teaching it to hundreds of children over the past 10 years. English entails more than just writing a paper for school. It includes Reading, Writing, Grammar and Spelling too. My approach to teaching English is to find out a student's strengths and weaknesses and then develop individualized lessons based on the results.

Grammar

Grammar is just one of the components of Language Arts but nonetheless an extremely important subject for students to learn. For over 10 years I have taught students various rules, concepts, and strategies. I always approach the subject based on what children already know and then I help scaffold their learning, confidence, and improved skills to get them where they need to be academically.

Phonics

I am qualified to teach Phonics because of my Teaching Certification in Early Childhood Education. In my training I learned how to teach every area of Phonics instruction. I also taught grades Pre K-3rd grades for over 10 years and tutored students in grades K-8th grades before and after school.

Prealgebra

I am qualified to tutor in PreAlgebra because I was an after-school coordinator and had the opportunity to help students in grades 7-8 with homework. I saw significant gains in their progress and the proof showed on their faces and report cards. I love it when children have "aha moments" and feel like they can accomplish anything, especially Math.

Reading

I have a Master's degree in Curriculum & Instruction: Reading and qualified and certified to teach reading in grades Pre K-12th.

Vocabulary

I am well qualified to tutor students in Vocabulary because I have earned both my Teaching Certification as well as my Master's degree in Curriculum & Instruction: Reading. I've had the opportunity over the past 10 years to help students excel in this subject. In addition to empowering the children in my classrooms, I also helped other from grades K-8th both before and after school.

Writing

I am qualified to teach Writing because I have taught the subject to students for over 10 years. I also have obtained 3 college degrees in which I had to do intensive writing in each course. I also headed up an after school Writing Club for grades 5th-8th.

Great Tutor

She is so encouraging and patient with my son. She is so nice and pleasant to talk to. She is always prepared for each session. She even reached out to my son's English teacher at his school to see his class agenda to pinpoint what she needs to focus on with him. I HIGHLY recommend Ericka.
