I am currently a 4th grade mathematics teacher. I have been teaching for the past 15 years in grades 3-6. During my career I have spent hundreds of hours dedicated to helping students learn strategies for test-taking. I don't just test them, I model different strategies for different types of tests, help with anxiety issues, and overall equip them with the tools for any testing situation.
I have both my undergrad and Master's in Literature, and have been teaching grades 1-6 for the past 15 years to present day. During my everyday teaching I am engrossed in the Common Core within all my lessons, in which standards I use to tutor. I presently tutor 2 students outside of school, and have for the past 4 years. I also have tutored during school hours, summer school, and various programs over the years. I have tutored with regards to test prep, math, reading, vocabulary, writing, and in conversational French.
