Children are precious and every minute of their learning time must be optimized to give them a savoring for words, skills, knowledge and the world around them.
If you have a child who is struggling to read or write or one who is gifted and talented, I would like to work with him/her.
All my experience has been in India, and I have headed the Learning Resource Centre at the prestigious Cathedral & John Connon School, taught children with learning disabilities for nine years, taught gifted students for four years and run my own successful education and teacher training company.
I have taught creative writing
to middle and high school students; reading
and reading appreciation to grade 5 to 9, and enrichment to gifted students in middle school.
I am interested in solving educational problems and am doing this at both a macro and micro level. I have developed differentiated reading stories, created CDs for first generational learners, programs for disadvantaged learners & now am working on a program that will be piloted in a large cancer hospital in Mumbai.
My method is simple- the child is the centre, and I will use his/her strengths and interests to first motivate and decrease reluctance, and then present a wide variety of engaging materials from every genre to create reading success. I am familiar with systems like Wilson reading
, Lindamood Bell, Fry's and will use a combination of sight words-phonics
to create reading success!
For both the gifted student and the child with creative writing needs, I prefer to work in groups of 6-10. The maximum progress can be seen when the element of peer learning is introduced.
My cancellation policy is 10 hours.
I know that your child will have fun, enjoy words, and become more confident and happy learning with me! I will not bill for any class where the child/parent is dissatisfied.
I welcome parents to sit in all classes, after the first one!
I hope you and your child have a successful academic experience with me or one of the other tutors here!
