Elementary (K-6th)

I have taught at an Elementary School in Philadelphia for the past 8 years. I have experience teaching a variety of subjects, including math, reading, spelling, handwriting, and study skills. I have experience working with students from pre-k through the 6th grade. I am well versed in Common Core Knowledge and what skills should be mastered within each grade level.


Study Skills

I have been an Elementary School teacher for 8 years. I have experience as a Special Education Case Manager, where I worked with students on organization and study skills. We worked on how to make flashcards, different strategies to memorize content (such as spelling words and basic math facts), and time management skills. I feel confident that students will leave me empowered to take control of their own studying and feel confident to create a study schedule that works for them and their personal schedule.


ADHD

I have been an elementary/special education teacher for the past 10 years. I have extensive experience teaching and tutoring students with ADD and ADHD, both medicated and unmedicated. I know that I have the skills and tools necessary to help students with ADD and ADHD thrive academically.


Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)

I have been a general and special education teacher for the past 10 years. I have taught students on the spectrum in an inclusion setting. I also have experience pushing into an ASD classroom and supporting. I have my certification in elementary and special education (K-12).


Praxis

I had to take Praxis Exams to become a teacher, and scored in the top 3 percent of individuals who took the same subject tests that I did. I have been teaching for the past 10 years and have done test prep for a multitude of state and national tests.


Handwriting

I have extensive experience teaching writing and handwriting, including cursive. I also have experience teaching handwriting to students with gross and fine motor delays. I believe that I can improve the handwriting of students at different ages and different stages of development.


Common Core

I am the Lead Math teacher at my school. As such, I have studied in depth the new Common Core standards. I have an understanding of which content needs to be mastered in which grade level. Additionally, I understand how each grade level builds upon the previous year. I believe that I can help students master this content. Additionally, I have experience explaining the new common core standards to parents and helping them to understand the multitude of changes that are now happening in education.


Homeschool

I have been an elementary/special education teacher for the past 10 years. I have extensive experience tutoring students who are homeschooled or completing cyberschool coursework. I have tutoring homeschoooled students from kindergarten through high school.
