About Elizabeth

I am currently serving as a librarian with Shelby County Schools. I have been an educator for twenty one years, ten as a classroom teacher and eleven as a librarian. I believe that individualized instruction is an integral strategy to aid children with different learning preferences. In order to meet individual challenges, lessons must be structured into learning modalities by incorporating auditory, kinesthetic, and visual techniques. Applying a variety of approaches to the learning process is equally important, Use of cooperative learning strategies, integration of technology into the classroom, as well as guided individual instruction are all necessary to provide an environment where children will use self-discovery and a hands-on approach to learning.

For myself, teaching provides an opportunity for continual learning and growth. One of my hopes as an educator is to instill a love of learning in my students, as I share my own passion for learning with them. I feel there is a need for compassionate, strong, and dedicated individuals who are excited about working with children. In our competitive society it is important for students to not only receive a solid education, but to work with someone who is aware of and sensitive to their individual needs. I am such a person and will always strive to be the best educator that I can be.

I have been teaching Grammar, Reading, and Vocabulary for twenty one years. My techniques and strategies help students become lifelong learners.

Phonics instruction is an important part of every reading program. It helps students to become fluent and independent readers.

A strong phonics foundation helps students to become great spellers which increases their writing skills.

I would love to work with you and help you to become the best student in order to succeed in the 21st century.

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

Common Core is a part of the curriculum for students in grades 1-5. I have been instructing students on how to read, comprehend, and understand passages using text dependent questions. I have also participated in several workshops to help students achieve at higher levels regarding common core content.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher/librarian with Shelby County Schools. I am qualified to teach grades 1-8 in reading language arts, math, science, and social studies. I have been teaching for twenty years. l have successfully taught grades 2-5 in the classroom; and l currently teach grades K-5 in the library. I have also tutored in the after school tutoring program with Shelby County Schools for at least ten years, which included tutoring grades 1-5.

Some classroom and tutoring techniques that l currently use are as follows: assessment through games, think-pair-share technique, use of multi-media tools, fast paced drills, and fostering independence. As an educator, my main goal is to teach students to become independent learners which is what high schools and colleges look for in students: critical thinkers.
