About Carla

I have been in the teaching industry for over fifteen years working in various districts as a Substitute Teacher. I have taught ages five to age eighteen, but recently in the past several years, I have taught mostly Elementary and Middle School students. I do not possess a certification yet, as I am waiting to get a full time internship. However, while waiting for my internship I completed my Master's in Education for Curriculum & Instruction from Concordia University.

What I enjoy most about teaching is when I can help a student understand the subject being taught. I enjoy helping students with reading concepts, but I also enjoy helping students with math for EC - 6th grade. I enjoy finding games to make learning easier, and help students see that reading and math can be fun! I like to use graphic organizers, writing, and discussions to help students learn material. I find that when students discuss or write about what they are learning, teachers can find their strengths and weaknesses about the given subject.

I have completed graduate classes for reading and vocabulary. I have six credit graduate hours specifically for reading. I have more credit hours geared toward literature for reading and vocabulary. I understand how to help students read using various reading strategies for comparing and contrasting, cause and effect, inference skills and understanding the author's point-of-view.

What makes me outstanding for Elementary is my completion of my EC - 6th grade classes through the approved teacher alternative program. I have also passed the PPR and my content test. I also have more than fifteen years in working experience in the classroom as a Substitute Teacher.

I personally have a phonics kit at home that I have used to help students. I invested in the kit years ago.

It is my desire to help you achieve your goals and obtain high academic achievement. With the resources I have, your school library resources, internet, and the public library resources I can help you to reach your desired goals for academic success. You can learn more about my credentials by contacting me for one free tutor session for one half hour - (1/2). During this session I will help you with homework, work on skills, prepare for an upcoming test, or help you get more organized.

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 passed my content exam, PPR, and I have completed all my teacher classes through an approved teacher certification program. I completed a Master's degree last year in Education for Curriculum & Instruction.

I have over fifteen years in the education industry in the classroom assisting students in various subjects. I have tutored students during class, at lunch, and in while the library.

Phonics

I have tutored students before using the phonics kit I purchased years ago. It contains a complete set to help children read from ages five to third grade.
