My experience and style:

ESL: Teacher of English and Spanish as a Second Language
Math: Elementary, Pre-Algebra, Algebra I & II, Geometry

I have been teaching professionally for over 9 years. I have been teaching as a volunteer for over 20 years.

I have been trained in 28 effective teaching methods. I determine the methods to use by first determining the student preferred learning style. He may be a visual learner, an auditory learner, a tactile learner, or a kinetic learner. He may need a combination of methods. It's all about the student and how he prefers to process new information. My students become engaged. They have fun again. Their self confidence improves. Their grades reflect that quickly.

Some of the effective methods include: bouncing a balloon on the non-dominant elbow and reciting new concepts. Juggling scarves while reciting target facts. Jumping rope while reciting new information. Both hemispheres of the brain are engaged at the same time. (Not a easy assignment to do.) The student's brain comes alive and new connections are formed. Memory is created and retained.

These kinds of methos are especially successful with people with physical or mental challenges.

I would be happy to demonstrate these skills with you.
