About Rebecca

I recently completed my master's degree in elementary education at the University of Maryland and will be relocating to the Virginia Beach area this summer! I have a passion for working with children of any skill and have experience working with children who have autism, behavior disorders, and elementary teaching experience. I love teaching all of the subjects but especially love to teach reading and providing reading enrichment!

I love to provide manipulatives and allowing for students to do learning on their own. Giving students multiple opportunity to practice the math skills. I have my endorsement to teach elementary education 1-6.

With my student teaching experience in Maryland in which the public schools use common core standards I am very familiar with common core needs and the structure of common core.

My student teaching experience, classroom research design, and knowledge of pedagogy has prepared me to be experienced in Elementary education.

As mentioned I enjoy teaching small group reading and many times there was a phonics focus during reading. Providing multiple opportunities for students to be engaged with learning phonics, comprehension, and identifying letters and sounds.

I am very enthusiastic in assisting any student's needs and would love to bring in confidence in subject areas!

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.

Common Core

I have my Masters Degree in Elementary Education and will also be receiving my teaching certification for grades 1-6. The county that I worked with and student taught in followed the Common Core standards for their curriculum. With this, I am very familiar with the needs and demands of Common Core and know how to use the strategies and teach the strategies that common core offers to students. I am very comfortable and competent with Common Core and can assure my students that they can build their learning confidence.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have my Masters Degree in Elementary Education and will also be receiving my teaching certification for grades 1-6. My masters degree program has properly prepared me to teach and tutor students in the elementary grade level and I have obtained many instructional strategies to use to assist students at any skill level. I have offered one-on-one assistant to students at home with ABA services and have assisted with homework and also provide this assistant in the classroom when I am conferencing with students.

Handwriting

With my masters degree in elementary education I have student taught and have worked with a classroom of students on improving handwriting skills. In addition I have taken coursework that has prepared in using effective instructional strategies to use when working students on handwriting. Giving students opportunities to work on writing by giving different prompts, using a classroom journal, writing notes back to students in their personal journals, and conferencing with students on a regular basis are all methods that I have used which demonstrates my competence in tutoring for handwriting.
