About Gemma

My name is Gemma and I love to tutor. I am a fourth grade teacher in Stafford County, and I have my undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Mary Washington. I am very passionate about teaching and building self-confidence in struggling students. I have tutored in several different settings including afterschool tutoring at a local middle school, private tutoring (in Algebra I, middle and elementary school math, and Geometry), volunteer tutoring in 8th grade math and bi-weekly after school tutoring with at risk 3rd-5th graders. I greatly enjoy sharing my love of learning with children in any setting. I strive to instill a love of learning and a desire to succeed in every child with whom I work. I am caring, responsible and flexible and I am always ready to adjust my methods to each child's individual needs. My name is Gemma and I love to tutor.

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.

Algebra 1

I LOVE math, and am passionate about helping students develop a positive, confident outlook toward math. I have tutored Algebra I students from a wide variety of backgrounds and school settings, and I firmly believe that all students can excel in math. In Algebra I, I emphasize critical thinking, conceptual understanding, number sense and and strategies for perseverance in problem solving.

Elementary (K-6th)

I received by undergraduate and graduate degrees from the University of Mary Washington, and I now teach 4th grade in Stafford County Public Schools. I also have experience working with all elementary age groups in a variety of contexts outside of the formal classroom setting - after school tutoring programs, one-on-one tutoring, summer camps, enrichment programs, and remediation. As a certified teacher I am familiar with the VA SOL requirements, I have experience with a wide spectrum of behavioral and academic needs, and I firmly believe that with purposeful, individualized instruction all children can excel in school.
