About Stephanie

I enjoy the opportunity to see children suddenly grasp a topic or skill that previously baffled them. The feeling of accomplishment is exciting to them and I enjoy seeing that. I also enjoy working with children one on one and giving them the extra attention that they may not be able to get during their regular school day. I am willing to work with parents and the child's current teachers to make sure that the tutoring process is as effective and successful as possible. I have exceptional grammar skills. I have taught elementary English language arts for six years and middle school language arts for one year. I have completed a bachelor's and master's degree, which required extensive writing skills.

I earned a bachelor's degree with a major in pschology and a minor in elementary education. I went on to earn a master's degree in human services. I have experience teaching all ages, from preschool through college. The bulk of my teaching experience is at the elementary level. My career path has led me in a different direction, but I still have the desire to teach and help students succeed.

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.
