Virginia Commonwealth University (MEd)
I am a recent graduate (December 2011) from Virginia Commonwealth University. I received my Bachelor's Degree in Liberal Arts as well as my Master's Degree in Teaching Elementary Education. I also possess my Virginia Teaching License for Elementary Education Pre-K through 5th grade.
I have been working as a Para-Educator in the York County School Division working with Kindergarten students. I work with small groups of students during literacy centers and assist with all other subjects of instruction during the day. I have been working with children since the age of 16 in a daycare setting as well in the public school system.
During my college experience I was a tutor for reading twice a week for a first grade student. During this time, I was able to assess the student's writing and reading skills and interests as well as motivation. I then focused on the skills he needed to improve his reading and writing.
I am very enthusiastic about student learning, and I believe in using many different methods to make sure that a student is able to master a concept. I think it is important to relate learning to their own lives as well as using materials the student can touch, see, and experience.

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.
