About Valerie

I have been a teacher for the past 15 years. I tutor my students and family members. The reason that I love to tutor is because sometimes it takes that one-on-one time to help with understanding. I have been told by my students that I have a way of "breaking it down" for them in a way that helps them to understand. All I know is that I work to make sure that my students understand what is being taught. I also feel that it is my professional responsibility to prepare them for the next level.

While I was in college, some of my favorite courses were sociology and psychology classes. I like to find out what makes people "tick". Knowing this also helps when tutoring because everyone doesn't learn at the same pace or in the same way. I like working with students in the classroom as well as one on one which is why I would be a great tutor.

I currently teach prealgebra in middle school so I am aware of the day to day challenges that come with student understanding. I also have a variety of tools that will help develop an understanding of prealgebra.

I love science. I enjoyed science classes when I was in college. I also like teaching science.

I am a certified teacher who tutors.

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 been a middle school teacher since 2000 certified to teach all subjects. My focus for literature has been 7th and 8th grade. We are focusing on informational text right now. Students need to be able to read and determine what is important information.

I teach middle school students how to prepare for assessments by taking notes as well as taking the time to study every day. Students are encouraged to use graphic organizers and stay organized. It is a part of the health curriculum at school.
