About Holly

I have over 5 years experience teaching in the state of Texas in the public school setting. I have worked specifically with small groups in the areas of reading and math interventions with the responsibility of keeping detailed data and documentation of their progress. I have akso taught 4 years specifically in 4th grade (All subjects) and prepping them for STAAR testing. Before that, I had substitute taught across 3 districts in Texas, privately tutored students of all ages etc. With my experience and current access to school materials, resources, previous self created lessons and tools I feel that I can help your child to become successful. I am looking to venture into tutoring on the side with the possibility of making this full time through the online portion of this website should this become successful.

I have a very strong work ethic and take each position I am in with complete responsibility, passion and importance since all children are unique. Differentiation is key with instruction these days so that each child may learn in the best way possible and that truly meets their needs. I have had many years of experience working with all types of learners and have had to adapt instruction to ensure individual success. I have had many years of experience also using data to drive my instruction and tailor it to best fit a child's needs.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my Generalist EC-6 certification as well as my Pedagogy and Professional Responsibilities Certification for EC-6. I am currently working on my ESL Supplemental Certification EC-6.

I student taught in Coppell ISD with Kindergarten, 4th, and 5th grade in the following subject areas: English Language Arts and Reading, Math, Science, and Social Studies.

I have also tutored one on one, small groups, and worked with public school classes in the many areas.

English

I am currently working on getting an extra certification called the ESL Supplemental Certification. I have attended University level classes as well as read an amazing teacher guide book on how to teach ESL students.

Grammar

The English language is comprised of sentences with the idea of subject-verb-object. In teaching grammar, you must first know how to correctly structure a sentence. We would study what each part of a sentence is and how to order them. For example, nouns, verbs, pronouns, subject, predicate, etc. Then we would pave the way for writing by practicing different types of writing that are age appropriate for the child.

Handwriting

I have worked with a targeted population of students who struggled with handwriting using various helpful manipulatives to aid in holding the pencil correctly, forming letters and even incorporating cursive handwriting techniques

STAAR

I have taught in a STAAR level grade for 4 + years working with students on reading, math and writing preparation.
