Since graduating from UC Santa Cruz with my BA in Community Studies in 2006, I have worked in education and youth development. I have worked with students of all ages, providing tutoring in groups and individually. I have worked with students in various settings: in after-school programs and in their living environments. I have had experience tutoring students all subjects at the elementary level, in English, ESL, and to students who are studying for the GED.
Part of my method for tutoring is to create a plan with specific goals with the student. Reaching consensus on desired benchmarks helps to devise the tutoring program to set up the student for success. Additionally it is important to assess the student's skills. This helps to identify areas that we will need to work on, to identify the direction and structure of the tutoring session. I lead my sessions in a dialectic mode to facilitate effective communication between the student and tutor.
