I have 15 years teaching and tutoring experience. I am honored to teach your child! I utilize the "5 Es" into my teaching in developing my lessons, assessments, and students. These include experience, exposure, high expectations, enduring understandings, and enthusiasm. Making student connections through real life opportunities like real life computation using coupons I locate online. Then I provide students play money and grocery lists to make change. Using these hands-on activities with students to teach Computation and Estimation and Decimal Problem Solving. An example of student understanding is several perfectionist students are struggling for the first time with Math concepts they have not encountered before, for example, Fractions, Adding and Subtracting Fractions with Unlike Denominators. They have "hit a wall" because they are used to immediately understanding a concept. There are also students who need extra time to strengthen skills. I spend time in small group, after school, and during planning to build their math confidence, provide individualized coping strategies, and teaching them to master the concepts. I also provide this in my one on one tutoring sessions for other students too. I set the bar high and students strive daily to meet it. They come away from these motivating talks with the sense that struggling to learn new concepts is creating new neurons in their brain; hence, growing their brain. It is a positive result learning from struggle. I use targeted data that drives my instruction based off of my data analysis.

I am a Certified Teacher in Virginia with a Master's in Education from Old Dominion - 2005, Gifted Endorsement. I have excellent written and verbal communication skills, with appropriate use of spelling and/or punctuation. Knowledge of office procedures and equipment.
