I have been tutoring a student I met through my teaching job since she was in third grade. She is now in fifth grade. I also tutor her younger sister (fourth grade) and brother (first grade). My teaching certification qualifies me to teach K-12th grades. In addition, I have also tutored a kindergarten student and am a sixth grade special education teacher at my current job. This often means spiraling down the curriculum to younger elementary curriculum, thus I am familiar with both teaching methods and elementary curriculum.
