"Hi! I'm Hillary! I am an experienced educator who believes that learning should be fun and relevant. I have over 15 years experience as an aide, classroom teacher, school & district coach/consultant, and tutor, teaching PreK-Gray. I graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Elementary Education and a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction. I have lived and taught in Jinja, Uganda, Shishmaref, Alaska, and Aurora, Colorado. I do not believe that there is only one method that works for all students. Each student learns at his / her own pace and is on a unique learning journey that is tailored to their circumstances and life experience. I am also a mom and so I love to grow and learn alongside my students.

I use lesson plans with an agenda and explicitly teach the material. I also make sure there is ample time for guided student practice and a few independent practice opportunities as needed.

I am empathetic with my students and I'm a patient tutor. I understand that in order to develop strong number concepts, students need direct teaching and practice counting, comparing, adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. They also need a strong foundation in patterns and place value.

I am encouraging and enthusiastic to motivate my students to reach their literacy goals. I follow a comprehensive literacy instruction model that blends instruction towards phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension.

I am a great listener and I celebrate every small success my students achieve. I follow a structured literacy approach which encompasses phonology, sound-symbol association, syllable instruction, morphology, syntax, and semantics.

I would love to learn more about you and your past success stories using any curriculum materials or teaching strategies that worked well. I would also like to hear what you hope to achieve out of your tutoring sessions and what life goals you are working towards. I believe that we can grow and work together to make your dreams come true! Feel free to c" less...
