Hello students! I am an elementary school teacher that would love to be your tutor and help you improve your skills in Language Arts. I am a highly qualified, certified teacher in Tennessee. I have received outstanding scores in my teaching abilities through my observations in the classroom by my administrators. I have two elementary and middle school-aged daughters of my own who are outstanding students in school, and I have enjoyed watching them grow and excel. My youngest daughter is gifted in reading and math, and my oldest is a math whiz, yet struggled early on in her reading comprehension and writing abilities. I have been fortunate to be able to use my strengths as a teacher to help her develop and maintain a love of reading through easy to use teaching strategies that have helped her gain confidence and success in the classroom.

I have nine years of experience working with elementary-aged students in both Language Arts and math. I also have had much success working with children who struggle with reading comprehension due to learning disabilities that might make reading a struggle. I have an excellent tool box of easy to learn strategies and resources to make learning fun and meaningful. I especially love working one-on-one with students to make reading relevant to their lives and relate to the real-world, thus showing students how reading and writing can be something they will enjoy as a part of their life-long learning. I believe reading, and especially reading comprehension, is the foundation for success in all subjects.

I am highly qualified to teach Language Arts in Tennessee in grades K-8. I am also highly qualified to teach all other subjects in grades K-6. I achieved a 4.0 GPA with a Master's degree in Elementary Education from East Tennessee State University. I am also a gifted writer and have 30 hours completed towards a law degree through Lincoln Memorial University's Duncan School of Law. My most recent accomplishment of pride was helping to lead a student to win first place in the state Junior Beta competition in Tennessee in writing. She will go on to the National competition this summer.

I would love to hear from any student needing some inspiration and guidance in their studies. Please feel free to contact me. Tutoring is a new chapter in my life, yet it is an opportunity for me to continue to use my teaching abilities to help students by using my strengths.
