I recently have moved back to Virginia after teaching for 11 years in New York City. I spent my time in NYC teaching public school- in both a direct class and co-teaching setting. I am certified K-12 in Special Education in Virginia. I have spent the last 7 years teaching in the general education setting (Math, English, Science and HS Earth Science) and am well aware of the general education standards. While my years as an educator have been in the middle school setting, I have a son going into 4th grade and remain up to date on the expectations for younger students as well.
I love to see when things "click." I am both patient and have a resource of strategies to help those students who may be struggling. Let's keep the joy in learning!
I currently teach middle school math in a Virginia public school
I co-teach Earth Science; passing rate was over 90% on state SOLs

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.
I have a Virginia Teaching License in special education that extends grades K-12. I have taught students in the general education setting in need of resource, study skills and co-teaching services. I have experience using hands on and kinesthetic approaches to teaching. In addition I have a son entering the 4th grade.
