About Sasha

Hello Students and Parents,

I taught elementary school for six years in both public schools and a private Christian school before becoming a stay-at-home mom. I have a masters degree in elementary education with an endorsement to teach English as a Second Language to kindergarten through adult students. I taught English as a Second Language in Colombia, South America, for two months in 2009. I have experience working with gifted students, students with learning disabilities, ADD, Asperger's, and other special learning needs. As an experienced teacher, I understand that there are many factors that can affect a student's ability to learn. When tutoring, I first identify the student's needs, learning style, strengths, and areas that are hindering progress. With this information tutoring sessions are more effective. I look forward to helping you meet your goals through tutoring.

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.

ADD/ADHD

During my six years as an elementary school teacher I taught several students with ADD/ADHD. The effects on their learning varied with each student. Some had difficulty with certain subjects, some with testing, and others with whole group instruction. I am able to adapt instruction to keep a student's attention and address the areas affected by their ADD.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a masters degree and bachelors degree in elementary education. I have taught six years at the elementary level and am licensed to teach preschool through sixth grade in Virginia.

Elementary Math

I taught math in first and third grades for six years. I will help your child understand the math concepts not just memorize the information.

ESL/ESOL

I have an endorsement to teach ESL on my Virginia teaching license. I taught ESL students when I was a first grade teacher. I spent two months in Colombia, South America teaching English as a Second Language to preschool, elementary, high school, and adult students. I have tutored several adults in ESL.

Phonics

As part of my bachelors and masters degrees I took coursework in teaching phonics. As a first grade teacher for five years, I have extensive experience teaching phonics. Also as an ESL teacher I have incorporated phonics into language lessons.

Reading

As a first and third grade teacher I taught students who struggled to learn how to read as well as those who were reading well above their grade level. I begin reading instruction by evaluating the specific areas a student may struggle with such as blending phonemes or comprehending plot in a story. Then instruction is targeted to those areas that a student does not understand or is weak in. Once the weaknesses are addressed, we can focus on developing your child's reading ability, confidence, and enjoyment.

Spanish

I love the Spanish language. I took five years of Spanish in middle and high school and two years in college. I spent two months in Colombia, South America teaching English. I was immersed in the language and culture as English was only spoken in my classroom. I am not fluent, but I am at an intermediate to advanced level.

Swimming

I swam competitively for eight years. I am a certified Water Safety Instructor. I also taught swimming lessons for three years.
