About Teresa

Thank you for considering me for tutoring your child. I'm honored for the opportunity. During the tutoring session, I will spend part of the time reinforcing the day's activity at school by going over homework or an activity that I create. The student and I will then focus on the SOL's desired or the specific tutoring assignment.
Throughout my years of substituting and long-term classroom assignments, I've found the one on one time a very effective tool in learning. I always participated in afterschool SOL tutoring at the elementary and secondary level. My expertise is in Social Studies grades 6-12. At the present, I am employed by an agency that scores the SOL's of other states which gives me an insight into the common weaknesses and strengths of students.
I've always believed that students are learning to learn and that is best achieved by making it interesting and fun; using strategies based on individual learning abilities. I feel that tutoring is a way to make learning interesting and offer students a chance to participate in their own achievement.
My experience includes long terms in sixth grade English and Math, including Special Education, eighth grade Civics ,and sixth grade Science at the Middle School level. I earned my BA and teaching certificate at Virginia Wesleyan: a college that offers the latest in teaching strategies and classroom management.
Whether your child needs help in basic Math, English, Writing, or Social Studies. I also aided with Middle School one act plays so artistic expression while learning is part of my tutoring session.
I want to help students learn to love learning and to improve their grades, of course, and to find their niche so to speak. All in all, that's my goal in tutoring.
