Glad you clicked on my profile to see if I am good fit to be your tutor.
Teaching and tutoring students has always been a skill that I have had. I would tutor teammates before and after school in subjects they would be struggling in. I would also take time during independent work to tutor friends who were not quite understanding material. During college I began to enjoy working with students who had a special needs
. After graduating with my undergraduate degree my passion took me overseas for a time to work with children with special needs in the Philippines. Upon returning to the states I began my Masters and Certification program in Special and Elementary Education
. Along with my program I began to work for a local organization
that worked with children on the autism
I am always learning new techniques of teaching and more about all different types of disabilities. This is a testament that even in your career learning never ends. That is why I believe it is so important for people to become good students and learners early. Not only is it important for us to learn, but we need to learn how to learn. We all have different modalities of learning and I love to bring those modalities when I work with my students and tutor.
I have experience creating my own curriculum and following pre-set curriculum as well. As a special education teacher I know lots of the tricks and strategies to help ALL students learn. I am a very planned out type of teacher and like to know what I will be teaching in advance. I specialize in math
, but have the ability to tutor all subjects.
