About Alaina

My experience working with students in grades K-12 has given me considerable knowledge in all curriculums. I have worked with students who are placed out of the school setting due to illness or disciplinary actions, as well as students in a group home setting. My interest in and enthusiasm for student achievement as both a classroom teacher, Exceptional Education lead teacher, and Homebound educator, has been an asset to helping students achieve both in and outside of the classroom.

I have 10 years of experience teaching a multi-grade classroom, managing several instructional assistants, and working closely with integrators and administrators to utilize current technologies and instructional methods.


I have worked as a classroom elementary school teacher for over 10 years.

I have training and experience in several instructional and assessment methods for phonics instruction.

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 have worked closely with Occupational therapists to determine the best practices for working with students with fine motor deficits. I have over 10 years experience working with the Handwriting without tears curriculum. I also have several years experience working with apps such as Show Me to help students learn appropriate spacing and formation.

Phonics

I have 7 years experience working with the Orton- Gillingham approach for multi-sensory instruction. I also have 10 years experience using Words Their Way. I like to incorporate several methodologies based on what works best for the individual student.
