About Traci

My goal is to help your child feel successful! I have been a special education and kindergarten teacher for 16 years! I have been blessed to work with young children with a range of abilities and believe that all children can make gains.

I am currently a kindergarten teacher and have taught for 16 years in public education. I have worked with Early Childhood students my entire career. I teach phonics daily as required by the state of Texas via TEKS. All my students make gains. If students struggle then I work with them in small group or 1:1 Most all kindergarten students leave reading and writing. Those students that struggle are encouraged and worked with daily to help them feel successful and the gains made are celebrated.

I teach young children to print daily! I teach the d'nealian style of printing with the exception of a regular lower case letter /k/. Cursive hand writing may or may not be in your child's future but if it is the d'nealian print will flow into cursive writing. I can also work on pencil grip and offer ideas to help strengthen hand muscles to improve fine motor skills of printing and cutting.

It amazes me that kindergarden students are required to read! Daily phonic practice mixed with sight words is the key to success. I am qualified to teach phonics in a fun and purposeful way! If your child learns phonics then I can tutor blending of sounds into words!

I am here to help guide your child to make gains! Please contact me and we can set up a start date!
Thank you for your consideration.

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.

Handwriting

I teach children to print daily in my kindergarten class. I teach acceptable pencil grip and work on correct letter formation. I model as I teach and use auditory cues to help the letter names and letter formations stick in the student's memory. I can also share ideas about building hand strength and improving fine motor skills.
