While I was in college I tutored in a first grade classroom to get volunteer hours. This was the first time I had been in an elementary classroom since I was in elementary school. I tutored there twice a week and grew to love it and looked forward to going. I loved helping the students with learning to read and loved hearing their stories. This positive experience resulted in me pursuing a major in Elementary Education K-6. While in college, I continued tutoring students and participated in many enjoyable field experience through my program. I graduated in December 2009 with a Bachelor's Degree in Elementary Education.

Since graduating college, I have been employed in a variety of areas that has all given me great experience in the field of education. I worked as a substitute teacher for four years, I have worked for a short amount of time at a few day cares, I taught preschool for a year and tutored in two different tutoring centers. I am currently a second grade teacher in a public school system. I absolutely love teaching and seeing students learn and grow in academics. I like to try to incorporate hands on activities, tricks and real world examples to help students succeed.

I love to use hands on activities when tutoring. I want to try to help the student learn in a fun way. After learning the activity and doing some hands on activities or games, I then like to assess the student to check their understanding.

I love teaching math because there are a lot of opportunities to create hands on activities and use manipulatives that will help students learn.

When teaching phonics, I feel it is beneficial to share with young students different tricks to help them read the word. I also feel repetition is very important in learning words and patterns.

Reading is my favorite subject to teach! I love to explore stories with students and see and hear their reactions to them. I enjoy talking about the story with students and relating it to their own lives, other stories, and to the world.

Phonics

I teach second grade and we go over a specific phonics skill each week. I like to find different strategies that will help students remember how to say the words; for example "the silent or sneaky "e" makes the vowel say its name." I have taught phonics in the past as well during my tutoring experience.

Great with kids!

Lindsay and my son have had two sessions the past couple of weeks. She is patient, kind and thorough. She created fun games to reinforce her lessons and my son gained one reading level in just these two sessions. He no longer fights us with reading at night and looks forward to it. Sight words have now become a game and he has fun practicing them each night. Highly recommend Lindsay!!
