About Alaina

I am currently in my twelfth year of teaching elementary education in public and public charter schools in Washington, D.C. I've taught students ranging from Kindergarten to 4th grade. I believe that every child can learn when given quality instruction that matches his or her learning needs. I also believe that kids need to be invested in their learning. Assessing students regularly, providing the students with feedback about their performances, and then assisting students in setting goals is a helpful way to involve students in the learning process. In my classroom, I seek to engage my students in reading through matching them with books they are passionate about. Math can come alive with manipulatives and games. I bring these same methods into my tutoring work. When kids are invested and engaged, lots of learning can happen. With my knowledge, experience and love for teaching, I know I can make tutoring a positive and educationally-productive experience for your student!

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.
