Elementary (K-6th)

I am interested in tutoring in grades K-6,because I teach these children every day. Every day I am helping a child with reading, math , spelling or science at my other job. I take whatever problem it is and break it down and make it easy for them. For example, I helped a kindergardener learn about money. I demonstrated the value of the money through the use of crayons in which each crayon represented a penny. There have been many times where I have helped students untderstand their spelling, science, and reading homework. I truly love to work with this age group which is why I have a Master's degree in Elementary Education.

I also have Montessori alphabet letters that will allow the students to form words on pan that looks like a lined piece of paper and then can copy it down on the paper. I work as a para-educator and I have many years of experience helping students write from Preschool to writing 12 grade essays.
