I have experience both tutoring and teaching. After graduation from Western Michigan University in 2007, I spent 5 years teaching 5th grade all subjects including a specific spelling/vocabulary curriculum and a full grammar program as well as Bible class. After 5 years working for a substitute company, I moved into a preschool position which I later left for another 5th grade position. I have also earned my masters in curriculum and instruction and am currently teaching 6th grade all subjects with an emphasis on math and ELA.

My tutoring experience includes students as young as 3rd grade and as advanced as the remedial writing classes for the local community college. I was the sole tutor, 2.5 hours per day, 5 days a week, for a student on the autism spectrum which was eventually followed by a position as a behavior technician for an autism center. Most recently, I have worked with a pre-algebra/geometry student for 2 years.

I find tutoring rewarding as it gives me an opportunity to meet an individual student where they are and take them to the next level of understanding. I love being able to take the time to find what works for each student.

When talking about math, I have worked with Big Ideas, Bob Jones Math, Go! Math, Everyday Math, and Engage NY curricula in my 10+ years of teaching. I also spent some time tutoring a student who was using the Singapore Math program. With each curriculum, a variety of sets of vocabulary and ways of explaining concepts was used. I am able to take pieces of each as well as personal life experiences to explain concepts to struggling students.

I have secured a variety of resources to aid in reading comprehension and writing tutoring but have used primarily novel studies, Purposeful Design (Christian school), and Pearson in my classroom teaching.

I am looking forward to building a tutoring business that meets the needs of local struggling students. I am moving away from classroom teaching to make tutoring more feasible. I can't wait to meet you and help you" less...
