About: Hello! I am a former DPS bilingual k-5 Special Education teacher looking for tutoring opportunities with students in ECE-2nd grade. I am open to working with a pod of students, as well as private tutoring. I am available 3 days/week for up to 20 hours. I am particularly passionate about students who require additional differentiation to the general education curriculum for engagement. I am willing to integrate some remote learning aspects, but, after teaching remotely in the spring, I believe that in-person, multi sensory lessons are more effective for young children, and would prefer to present the majority of instruction in this way. I believe that a strong relationship is the essential first step to engagement in learning. Then, I use multi-sensory games and a wide variety of activities and play to tailor the curriculum to your child. I love to use the outdoors and real-life situations to teach concepts, so there are certainly opportunities for field trips! I believe that this unique time in education offers families an opportunity to fill in many gaps in student’s typical general education curriculum: problem solving, critical thinking, phonics/phonemic awareness, science and social studies, social/emotional learning, and building a growth mindset! I have an active professional license in Elementary Education and Special Education, and am happy to work with students who are GT, SPED, ELL, etc. Pod Learning Availability and Rates: 2-3 days/week for up to 20 hours. Able to support mixed-grade groups. $15/hour per student (2-student and 10-hour minimum). Private Tutoring Rates: $30-$45/hour. Hours flexible.
