About Chelsea

Hello! Bonjour! Anyeonghaseo!

I am a mother of 3 wonderful children and a certified substitute teacher. Currently I work as a para-professional & instructional assistant to 6 STEM teachers for my local school district middle school setting. My current employment means that I have specific, recent experience in teaching 7 & 8th grade ELA, Math (Pre-Algebra & Geometry), Graphic Arts, History/SS & STEM Science courses. I am also studying for my M.A. in K-12 Education with certification in French & ESL/ELA. I have tutored in all elementary-middle school subject levels, including languages (ESL/FRENCH/KOREAN), language arts (reading, writing, listening & comprehension), social studies, science, and mathematics.

I am also a freelance editor, language tutor & translator online, and have experience interpreting for the Dept. of State. I have spent nearly 10 years living & teaching abroad, and more recently in South Korea, where I taught Freshman English (ESL) to native Korean university students.

Personally, I love to travel, write, explore the outdoors and spend time riding bikes & swimming with my family. Spending time with those I love gives me great pleasure while balancing work, my studies, and my family life. In my free time, I volunteer online as a translator, and continually research and review effective teaching methods.

With regard to teaching, I have a multi-faceted approach to education and learning. Students can learn in a variety of ways that help to build their basic skills while promoting creativity, critical thinking and problem solving; this can all be done with the idea that we all have multiple intelligence, and can learn best by employing a variety of learning styles that cater to our own unique, individual needs. I take pride in challenging my students, inspiring them to develop their abilities and talents, and I firmly believe that each and every student can set goals & achieve them!

I am available most evenings for online classes, and several blocks of time in the afternoon for students that would like to meet 1-on-1 at the Bremerton or Silverdale YMCA. I would appreciate a 2 hour or more notice for class cancellations, and am usually willing to hold make-up classes. I offer the 1st class/interview *free* if the student books a class within 3 days, otherwise I charge 1/2 price. Ask me about a *flat rate* for classes paid in advance!

I look forward to working with you and your child(ren)!

Thank you! Merci! Kamsahamneda!

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.

I have tutored subjects K-6 for many years: First while teaching in South Korea, I served as a volunteer tutor for grades K-6 at my son's American curriculum International School, where I tutored both native and non-native English speakers in LAR, Reading/Blending & Phonics, Spelling, General Science and Elementary Math. I also have experience teaching & tutoring in grades K-6 while substitute teaching in the States: I have spent no less than 500 hours in the Elementary School setting, following the home room teachers' lesson plans, those of which have all been aligned to follow Common Core Standards, including the WA State required tests, Smarter Balanced & the MSP for grades 3-8 as well. I also have experience in teaching study skills, homework completion & test prep strategies for students in the elementary grades.
