Hello! My name is Becca, and I am going to school for elementary education, focusing in science.
I work my price for tutoring on a sliding scale.
We are in a pandemic, I understand people have lost jobs, and lack of financial access shouldn't be a barrier for people to obtain basic education.
My formal experience with academic tutoring was working with Wisconsin Reading Corps as a Literacy Tutor in 2018. I had 15 students I met one-on-one for 20 minutes, every day. The goal was to get students to read increased words per minute(ideally 120 wpm). I tutored 1st-3rd grade.
My history with teaching includes: being a dance instructor at MSCR (Madison) for ballet, contemporary, hip hop, and jazz. The age groups were from first grade to 8th grade, depending on the class.
I have completed 46 hours of childcare training with Wisconsin Teaching Procedures, and multiple Mandated Reporting trainings as well.
This upcoming semester, my courses include focusing on building a curriculum and syllabus, which I intend to incorporate with my plans for my students.

I live for the "lightbulb" moment with students. The shine of realization in their eyes when they recognize a concept, or tackle a difficult word/passage, or when they come up with their own connections to the material. It's those moments that make teaching so rewarding, and it's one of the main reasons I enjoy my work.

When I work with a new student, I will always try to create both a pleasant and rewarding experience for the student. Typically, I will read a story and attempt to gauge the students' interest and response to the material. I use follow up questions to obtain open-ended answers to understand the student.
Currently enrolled with UW Milwaukee Education program, previous experience with childcare and tutoring both in Madison and Milwaukee (see profile)

If an instructor has high expectations, they should also be able to provide tools for you to work, without shame.
