Hello,

My name is Kizzy and I look forward to working with you!

I just finished graduate studies at Wilmington University with a Master's of Education in School Counseling. I worked last year as a guidance counselor and currently as a Special Education Elementary School teacher. I teach grades 1st-5th. I teach and am versed in all subject areas. I work on various different learning levels and with different learning styles. Differentiated learning is my specialty.

Besides teaching, I have worked as a therapist in residential treatment facilities and as an investigator for the Department of Children and Families.

In general, I work on rapport and confidence building. I believe that all students can be successful with a specialized approach.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a Special Education teacher, teaching grades 1st-5th and all subject matters including but not limited to Language Arts (reading/writing), math, science, social studies and health. I have a unique style of teaching and realize that all learners learn differently. I specialize in differentiated learning, assessing where the child is at (instructional level), frustration level and where they need to be (grade level). I then devise a strategic teaching plan that allows the child to build confidence and become successful. I utilize several different literacy programs including Reading A-Z, First in Words, and a Phonicological Chip Kit.

Phonics

I am an educator in Baltimore. I teach a self contained class with grades 1st - 5th. Most of my students are not versed in phonemic awareness and lack the skills to transfer these skills into decoding (reading). I utilize the basic and advanced phonic chip kit from 95 Percent Group. The Phonics Chip Kit helps teachers explain phonics patterns using manipulatives and sound-spelling mapping. The kits helps teachers focus on sound-spelling pattern identification rather than word reading and directs student’s attention to identifying individual phonemes in words and analyzing sound-spelling patterns. The kits also provides strategies for identifying different sound-spelling patterns in words.

Happy Mom

I just drilled my daughter on information her teach provided her 3 days ago. After only one tutoring session with Kizzy she was able to retain all the needed information to be successful on her Science test. My daughter has been struggling in every subject and for her first time this school year she seems confident. I'm so excited about Kizzy working with my daughter. Last Kizzy did an assessment and provided a plan for my child to get back on track. I'm also impressed with her knowledge and professionalism. Organization is definitely her strength!

Awesome Tutor

Kizzy is a Great Tutor. She is very patient with my son. He enjoys his weekly meeting with her. She is very flexible with working around our schedule. The materials and ideas that she brings forth to his session is very helpful in helping learn the information. I love the different that Kizzy has a lot different strategies to help my son who has ADHD and Autism learn. Kizzy is always available to answer any questions that myself or his father may have.

Very patient and a great tutor

Hi my name is Shakiara. Mrs. Kizzy helped me in math for the fifth grade. I was having some math problems, and needed some help with my math assignments. So one night we meet at the library. Mrs. Kizzy was very patient with me while I was being tutored. I highly recommend her because she really helped me at a time when I really needed it. Thank you!
