Patient...Certified Elem Teacher w/ Master's Degree & Endorsement

I have been a Kindergarten teacher and I now teach preschool. I have been a tutor in the past and have been very successful at tutoring Elementary students. I love to work with students one on one and will help your child with whatever you need. I also have a quiet clubhouse in my neighborhood we can meet at if you prefer. I can add a background check if you would agree to do several lessons. :) I am a passionate and caring teacher and will work hard to help your child reach their goals. ... [more]


I learned some great vocabulary teaching methods in my ELL endorsement classes. They can apply to any student even if they are not ELL students. It will be very helpful to all students I work with.

Elementary Science

I have done some training on STEM and STEAM science. I have been praised for my ability to teach science. I have been told that my excitement for science shows and my students enjoy learning science in my classes.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a Kindergarten teacher. I have a master's degree in Elem Education, ELL endorsement, professional development, and more. I am a certified K-5 teacher and have the qualifications to tutor in an Elem subject. I am great at helping struggling students in math.


I have the education and experience to teach phonics. I teach phonics on a daily basis. I have great success with teaching phonics and have been able to teach my ESL students to read each year.

Study Skills

I developed some great study skills over the years. I learned some good note taking, outlines and other ideas for students to use. I can assist students on methods to help them study and use their time wisely. I will be able to help them study but also use the time well.


I have learned how to teach handwriting and use the Handwriting Without Tears curriculum in my classroom. I also was on a Kindergarten panel about 3 years ago and learned some great tools to help students learn to write.

Common Core

I was required to use the common core in college for all lessons and I taught to the common core in my Kindergarten position for four years. I am very familiar with the common core.
