I am a certified teacher that has taught students at all levels from 1st Grade through adults. I have worked with ESOL and VE students, mainstream students, and regular ed pupils. I was the educator at a female prison implementing a pilot program established by Gov. Jeb Bush to seriously decrease repeat incarcerations by preparing the women for life on the outside. Of the eighteen women who prepared for the GED, sixteen passed on their first try, and the other two missed by a few points in a single subject, and obtained their GED on their second try.
I was an assistant to author Valerie Ellery (and also an acknowledged contributor) in her book "Creating Strategic Readers". "Creating Strategic Readers", an International Reading Association President's Club selection, has been presented to teachers throughout the United States and in several foreign locations.
I would like to help you or your student achieve personal growth and self pride in the learning process. Most classroom curriculum moves at a rapid rate. Not every student can adjust as quickly and therefore tends to fall behind. I believe the whole purpose in utilizing a tutor is for me to ensure that you completely understand a concept, and can adequately explain it prior to moving forward. Most subjects build upon the foundation of your previous knowledge - if there are "cracks" or "missing bricks" in the foundation then it must be repaired and strengthened for you to succeed.
