I am currently working as an alternative education high school English teacher, but I also have a multiple subject credential which allows me to teach K-6. I love working will all ages of children. I am patient, understanding and fun. I would love the chance to meet you and your child to discuss your needs.
I am aware of the different learning styles and allow students to 'show what they know" through discussion, hands-on activities and games. I feel that all students need to feel successful so I make sure all questions or comments tie into the lesson somehow. I really enjoy working one on one with students because they learn to be confident learners.
I am trained in and use the new Common Core standards and understand the educational principles and goals of K-12 education.
Again, I enjoy working with children and look forward to getting to know you and your child!
I am qualified to teach/tutor phonics because I have experience working with young children and teaching them how to read. I use the strategies that I learned in my credential program (games, word plays, oral interactions and discussions, white boards, drawing etc.). I have been trained in Common Core and understand the educational goals set by state and federal institutions.
I am qualified to teach/tutor study skills because I actively teach these to my high school students. I teach them to be prepared (bring materials to class), to be organized (to have a folder, backpack, etc) and to set goals (planners, calendars, checklists). I help them to prioritize their work and to create a system for completion.
