About Tracy

I am currently a certified teacher for grades K-6. I have been teaching language arts for the past 6 years. My specialty is reading/language arts, but I am comfortable teaching any subject. In addition to teaching in the regular classroom, I have also taught homebound students and, of course, my own 4 children.

I generally prefer 3 hours notice for cancellation. I can comfortably tutor in my home and have a workspace set up. Please let me help you or your student become more academically confident and successful!

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.

ADD/ADHD

In the past 6 years teaching at Maryville City Schools, I have instructed many students with ADD/ADHD some medicated and some are not. I am familiar with the use of a 504 plan for students with ADD. In addition, my daughter is ADD, so I have developed many strategies to help her become successful academically.

Anthropology

My undergraduate major from Trinity University was Anthropology. I received a B.A in Anthropology (with a specialty in Archaeology) and International Studies from Trinity University.

Archaeology

My B.A degree from Trinity University was in Archaeology with a concentration in archaeology.

Aspergers

In the past 6 years I have taught reading/ language arts to 11 students that are diagnosed with Aspergers. I am familiar with strategies to help them be successful socially, emotionally, and academically. In addition I am familiar with strategies and modifications outlined in an IEP.

Dyslexia

In my past 6 years teaching at Maryville City Schools, I have had 3 students with dyslexia. I have worked closely with the inclusion and special ed teachers to develop strategies to help students with dyslexia improve reading skills. The current student that I tutor has dyslexia, and a former ESL student that I worked with also had dyslexia.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am currently a certified teacher (k-6) and hold my Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have been teaching language arts in Maryville City Schools for the past 6 years.

Study Skills

I have taught all levels of reading/language arts for 6 years at Maryville City Schools. I constantly work with students on study skills to help them feel more prepared for academic lessons and then produce results on assessments. In addition, I have helped my own 4 children develop study skills (particularly in subject areas that they struggle with) to help them understand and retain concepts. Study skills are more than just a way to help you succeed on tomorrow's test. Strong study skills developed early will help you throughout high school, college, and life!
