About Meredith

I have taught for 7 years in public school. Subjects that I have taught span the curriculum: math, reading, writing, science, and social studies. In addition to teaching full time, I have tutored privately for 5 years. I began tutoring reading to ESL students. From there, I expanded to tutoring to remedial elementary reading and math. Before school, I led small group tutoring sessions for 5th graders to help prepare them for the upcoming end of year state test. Enrichment tutoring in writing and math have become part of my repertoire as well; I developed a tutoring curriculum that bridged the gap for students wishing to skip a year of middle school math. Math is my favorite subject!

Did I mention that math was my favorite subject? I find solving for variables and recognizing patterns a rewarding puzzle. I teach students strategies, with a strong emphasis on translating the words into pictures/ graphic representations, that make algebra more concrete and less abstract.

For 7 years, I have prepared students for the state test in writing, which includes a written composition and a grammar portion. Additionally, I have tutored ESL and writing privately.

I have a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. My post-graduate teaching license qualifies me to teach prekindergarten through 6th grade, and I have taught elementary school for 7 years.

Tutoring with a student one-on-one gives us the freedom to work at the student's individual pace, which is usually much quicker than a classroom setting! I enjoy equipping students with strategies and memory devices that will help them become independent. It is so rewarding to be a part of scaffolding student learning and building their confidence in themselves.

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 a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction. My postgraduate teaching license certifies me to teach prek-6th grade. I have taught in public elementary school for seven years.

Elementary Math

7 years classroom teaching experience; M.A.Ed. Curriculum and Instruction- Elementary Education; valid PreK - 6th Postgraduate Professional Teaching License

Prealgebra

Algebraic foundations is a strand of the math course that I have taught for 7 years. Additionally, I developed a curriculum to bridge the gap, so students could skip a year of math in middle school. Currently, I tutor geometry, which builds on algebra/ prealgebra skills. Because prealgebra is abstract, my goal in working with students is to help make these concepts more concrete.

Special Needs

I collaboratively taught an inclusive math class for 3 years. I am familiar with individualized education plans, as I have had many students with accommodations throughout my teaching career. My experience includes partnering with students and parents to scaffold student success.
