About Whitney

I am currently in my sixth year of teaching as a public school educator. I was a Kindergarten teacher for the first five years of my career, and am now a K/1 multiage teacher. I obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education in 2011.

Since then, I have obtained a second Bachelor of Science degree in Communication Disorders & Deaf Education, and have begun my Master's of Education degree in Curriculum & Instruction, with an emphasis as a Reading and Math Specialist.

I specialize in tutoring both Literacy and Math. I have significant experience with the Comprehensive Literacy Model approach to instruction, which includes reading comprehension, written expression, phonics, spelling, and vocabulary. I also have a passion for Mathematics, and have taken a handful of undergraduate courses for fun.

Because I teach full time, I am available for tutoring in the evenings and on the weekends. And I am open to both in-person and online sessions.

I am blessed to have experienced so many wonderful opportunities with teaching and working with children. I have a passion and desire to help all students succeed in their personal goals, endeavors, and in life's circumstances and events. I look forward to working with and meeting you and your educational goals.

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 been teaching with the Common Core State Standards for several years now. I have participated in several professional development sessions and conferences relating to the CCSS. I have spent meticulous amounts of time breaking down the ELA and Math standards to understand the manner in which the standards need to be taught and mastered across K-5.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a BS degree in Elementary Education, with a certification that spans Birth-6th grade. I am currently in my sixth year of teaching in the public school sector. I have personal classroom and tutoring experience with Kindergarten, 1st grade, 2nd grade, and 5th grade students.

Handwriting

With teaching at the lower Elementary level, I have had to provide handwriting instruction to my Kindergarten and 1st grade students. I studied and practiced various handwriting styles during my Undergraduate program. I regularly utilize verbal prompts when teaching my students how to form letters correctly.

Phonics

During my six years of teaching, I have received specific training in Phonics and Word Work, both from district trainers and professional conferences. I have utilized the Fountas and Pinnell Phonics program, along with Words their Way. I have completed Graduate level courses that address Literacy development in PK-3rd grade students.
