My name is Adelle Southall. I have always wanted to be an elementary school teacher. I have worked with hundreds of students closing the gap and building confidence.
I started teaching in 2007 in a rural area of Maryland as a classroom teacher. Throughout my 14 year career, I’ve taught 5th grade, 3rd grade, and 2nd grade. Along my teaching journey, I grew a passion for teaching English language learners. I shifted the focus of my Master’s Degree from Curriculum Design to Teaching English Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL). In 2015 I made a huge shift, moving districts and becoming a Teacher of English Speakers of Other Languages.
I enjoy tutoring students who need a little extra help in their core subjects. Working with a variety of students in the schoolhouse has prepared me to work with a variety of students online. I am able to give assessments and observations to know exactly what your child needs and how to get them on the road to success.
Helping children learn is my passion.
I believe that tutoring is more than just helping students receive a passing grade on a test; it’s a way to motivate and prepare students to achieve their academic and professional goals in a competitive world.
