I went through the Early Childhood Education program at Oak Ridge High School and through it received my teaching certification. I was a student teacher at Wildcat Preschool for four years and I have also been a teacher assistant at Willowbrook Elementary School for both Kindergarten and Second Grade. Also, I volunteered at the Boy's and Girl's Club. There I assisted elementary school children with their homework in all subjects.
I love teaching children because I love seeing how happy they get when they're finally able to grasp something that they've had difficulty understanding.
The math taught in elementary school changes a lot in a short period and I have experience teaching the new methods that are used.
I took advanced English courses in school and have assisted friends and classmates with essays all the way through the college level.
Through working at the Boys and Girl's Club, I have experience in assisting children with all subjects taught at the elementary level. While working at Willowbrook Elementary, I was expected to know the Common Core standards so that I could better teach the students. Also, I have a sibling in middle school and have tutored them in various topics throughout their education.
Through my combined teaching and volunteer experience, I am knowledgeable in all elementary level subjects and also have experience teaching said subjects.
I have an open availability and would love the opportunity to further your child's education and help them succeed in their academic life. I can provide references if needed.

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.
I have been a teacher assistant for both a kindergarten class and also a second grade class. My primary job was to work one-on-one with children that were struggling. I gained experience with other grades through tutoring elementary and middle school children at the Boy's and Girl's Club.
