About Geraldine

I am a dedicated teacher who takes time with each student individually,even in a classroom setting. My goal is to motivate students to reach their potential and beyond in any subject areas.

I realize through my previous experiences that focusing on reading comprehension and math are essential for students to excel in all subject areas. I use differentiated instruction tools to address the needs of all learners.

I have taught Elementary Math/K-6. I was a 5th grade Math/Science, which included: prealgebra, geometry, and algebra 1 skills. I will give pretest to determine your skill levels. This will be used to plan your lessons and assignments for each session.

Common Core Standards of teaching are essential. A student with good comprehension skills has the potential to understand all subjects areas. Math and science contain algebraic formulas, which are connected to basic math skills. Essentially, all subjects correlate with each other. I use various teaching techniques such as visual tools, anchor charts, and manipulatIves because everyone learns through different methods.

I have 10 years experience working with students from grades K-6 in Memphis City, Shelby County Schools, and the Municipal Schools Districts. I have worked with Pre-K children, also for 10 plus years.

I am available to tutor from 10:00am -4:00pm Monday to Friday. Tutoring sessions will be at the library. My cost per session is 35.00/hr. I am available to tutor all general subject areas. I encourage everyone to get in touch with me to learn through innovative exciting learning techniques. Learning can be fun with motivation and determination.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

Currently, I am classified as a highly qualified teacher Licensed and Certified in the State of TN to teach grades K-6. I have passed all required Praxis I/II Test. I have taught various grades in the elementary school districts. I teach differentiated levels of instruction to compliment all learners abilities. I have incorporated intervention in my classrooms to make sure all students are given the opportunity to reach their potential and beyond.

Elementary Math

I am highly qualified to teach general math and algebra. My experience includes teaching math for various elementary grades levels. Recently, I was a fifth grade Math teacher in which I used various types of techniques, (manipulatives, charts, visual tools, etc). Every student learns in different ways, so I incorporate differentiated instructions in the lessons.
