Minnesota State University, Mankato (Elementary Education)
I received my Bachelor's Degree from Minnesota State University, Mankato in Elementary Education. In the past few years, I have worked in a couple of different positions. I have spent most of my time working with upper elementary students. Currently, I teach 5th grade. Even though my time teaching in a classroom has been focused with upper elementary age children, I have much experience working with students of many different ages. I will not agree to teach when I do not have a firm grasp of concepts myself. Please contact me if you are interested and tell me the subject you or your child needs help with. If it is a subject I am familiar with, I would love to help! I believe that every student has his or her own strengths, needs and interests. Tutoring allows me to help students reach their full potential because I can teach to their specific needs and interests. Students really retain what they learn when what they are faced with seems relevant. I try to help students see the "real life" connections to what they learn. I truly enjoy helping students realize their what they are capable of learning and doing. I very much enjoy making a connection with the students I teach; tutoring gives me the ability to do that.

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 currently teach 5th grade at a public school in Wisconsin where we use Common Core standards to guide our instruction. I am comfortable interpreting the standards and designing curriculum to help students meet the standards in different grade levels.
I graduated from Minnesota State University, Mankato with a degree in Elementary Education. I am currently in my 7th year of teaching fifth grade and work with elementary students of various ages on a daily basis. I've also had several years experience tutoring elementary students outside of the classroom in math, reading, writing, science and study skills. I enjoy getting to know students as individuals so I can find the method of learning that best suits them.
Swimming is a true passion of mine! I swam competitively throughout college and swam for Minnesota State University, Mankato. When I moved back home to Kenosha, Wisconsin I remained involved in the sport by teaching swim lessons and coaching high school swimming. I recently just finished my 7th year coaching and truly enjoy watching others have success in an activity that has made such a positive impact in my own life.
