I have a love of children and a love of learning. After spending years at home raising my son, I felt called to enroll in college for the second time to become an elementary school teacher. December 2020 I graduated with a second bachelors degree in elementary education from Utah State University; my first bachelors is an engineering degree. Student teaching occurred during the pandemic in an online environment. In these unusual circumstances, I had success both teaching and creating meaningful relationships with my students.

I tutor elementary math for grades first through sixth. I am familiar with Common Core State Standards in Mathematics.

I tutor elementary age children: first through sixth grade.

Connecting with my students is an important element of tutoring. By learning about each of my students and where their gaps are in math, I can create a personalized tutoring plan for them. I strive to help my students gain confidence in themselves and their abilities by strengthening their fundamental understanding of concepts. They can do it! I also work to inspire a love of learning in my students and to help them achieve academic success so they can reach for their dreams.

A rising third grader that I currently tutor was initially struggling with her second grade material. She is homeschooled and her mother wanted a tutor to help prepare her daughter to approach multiplication in the fall. An initial assessment identified multiple gaps, such as basic ten facts, but she could read and write three digit numbers. Thus far, over the course of ten sessions, she has progressed from skip counting and reviewing strategies for addition and subtraction to understanding arrays and repeated addition, which will help her move into multiplication.
