Dear parent and students:
I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself talking about my background and experience in the education field. I have been working in education for over ten years.
I graduated in agricultural sciences with a strong background in mathematics and obtained my Spanish teaching credential at California State University of Los Angeles. I taught ESL and math-prealgebra, Algebra I and II and geometry at my native country while I was working on my undergraduate courses in agricultural engineering. I received rigorous math training at the high school level in Pomona Unified School District.
I had been working as a substitute teacher at different school districts including Baldwin Park, Bassett and Pomona, and as a Spanish teacher for two years in Hacienda La Puente and Pasadena. I am also highly qualified in Spanish literature and Spanish I and II for both native and English speakers. During my years as a substitute, most math and Spanish teachers trusted my abilities to deliver their classes either in their absence or presence.
On the other hand, I would like to talk about my tutoring method and techniques to insure all of my students success. my first technique is my enthusiasm and belief that all children can achieve their goals and succeed.
Second, I diagnose my students' skills through the application of a short test to determine what they know or have mastered, what they need to review and what they do not know. But I am open to do an informal diagnose and listen to student's ideas. While my students answer their short test, I usually review their old worksheets, quizzes and tests to get a better sense of what they know, their study habits, note taking skills, learning styles and test taking ability. Once I know the students' level, I share information with them while I point weaknesses and motivate students to show their strengths as well. I praise my students for what they do and accomplish.
Another method or technique I use is to make a checklist of different topics students will be learning to keep track of weekly progress, so my students will be motivated to check off their own progress, giving them the sense of accomplishment and motivation to start the next topic.
I am looking forward to working with you, parents and children, to make a big difference in students' learning.
