"Hello! My name is Haley, I have been teaching afterschool program through I Have a Dream Foundation for the past 2 years. Before that, I taught at a science museum while obtaining my Master's degree. I have taught and tutored every subject including life skills/soft skills, and I am bilingual in Spanish. With my service term at IHDF coming to an end, I am looking for new opportunities to continue teaching and connecting with the community!

I have 3+ years of experience teaching elementary aged kids, and I helped transition my cohort of 50 students into middle school this past year. I also have taken multiple courses in child development and psychology.

Science is my passion and my main focus - both my undergraduate and Master's degree are science education! I feel confident teaching any science topic, and I prefer a project-based approach or an "explore first, explain later" method to teaching science. When students experience something first rather than sitting through a lecture, they typically retain more information and have a memory of how that scientific topic occurred. I love to explore new techniques and materials, and focus on what your student is interested in first.

Although I am not a native speaker, I took Spanish all throughout my education and use it daily in my current job. All of the families I currently serve are Latinx, and I am on the phone with parents daily in Spanish. I feel confident I can teach elementary or middle school levels of Spanish.

I played lacrosse from middle school all the way through the end of college, and it was a huge part of my identity. I believe sports can add so much balance to a student's life, and I encourage activity and play wherever I can!

Please feel free to reach out and tell me what you are needing help with! If I don't feel like I will be a strong enough tutor in a certain topic, I will be honest. Let's have some fun and learn!" less...
