“Why do we need to know this stuff anyway?” is what you hear when a student is frustrated with schoolwork. I’ve heard it many times. The key is to find the right motivators that will captivate and engage your student to where they will embrace the challenges of learning and not feel overwhelmed by new concepts.
We can build foundational skills in Math, Language Arts, and Reading through a variety of techniques tailored to the way your student learns. As a reading specialist, I will integrate a plan to work through weaknesses and develop positive reading and writing skills to include phonics, encoding, decoding, reading, spelling, vocabulary, writing, and comprehension. In math, we will work through grade-level concepts to ensure the required foundations have been set.
In addition, I will create a tailored study plan and work with your student to implement critical study, organizational, and time management skills while completing the required daily homework assignments. These are necessary tools to empower students to be successful.
For the past ten years, I have worked with TK-6th grades as a Language Arts/Reading Specialist. For seven years, I facilitated a Homework Club servicing over 75 students. I also currently conduct after-school classes to include a Drama Club and Speech/Debate class.
I look forward to collaborating to with you to help your student be successful!
