ESL/ELA teacher with 15 years experience in Chicago suburban elementary and middle school.

Methodology

I believe all students are smart, and can learn to show what they know by using creativity and strategies based on their needs. I have been a 5/6 grade teacher for the past 15 years. My students have learned how to articulate their thinking through journaling and extended responses. They have learned how to think critically, using a multitude of strategies taught and practiced in class. Among teaching all subjects, there was also extended emphasis on how to format narratives, expository, and persuasive essays. I have also tutored in my home during the summers.

Background

I have been a 5/6 grade teacher and ESL endorsed, for the past 15 years. I hold a bachelor's degree from Northeastern Illinois University. I chose to go back to school later in life and get my degree in education, which was a long time dream and passion. My expertise is in English Language Arts, although I have also taught science, social studies, math, and health.

Rates

Rate for online lessons : $25/h

Details

Rates will be based on the grade level and work expectation. I will grade the work and give follow-up notes for discussion. Follow up notes are done on my personal time. After things clear up a bit with the Covid situation, in person tutoring will be available as well. ELA tutoring classes tend to last a bit longer based on the needs and desires of the students.
