My greatest asset as a tutor is having the ability to understand and observe student behavior. I encourage students to be academically driven, and strategically motivated. The proven teaching methods that I use begin with familiarizing myself with what prior knowledge student's own in each of the subjects. I assess student progress through academic discussions. Initial lessons are based on the skills needing reinforcement. I use memorization techniques, hands on strategies, and games that ignite motivation. Questions are rippled throughout my tutoring sessions, and when the students teach, I learn what they know through the Learning by teaching method of instruction.
As a teacher/tutor I use creative out of the box ideas through exploration to discover and encourage what each student needs to complete the learning objective of the day. I am not satisfied with short term input, I build knowledge with each meeting. I have an exclusive eye for operating in the moment. My student's are guaranteed to gain understanding and progress academically with each session.
I taught Kindergarten in private education for eight years, of which three of those years I had my own private school for advanced preschoolers and a full day Kindergarten. All my students could read, write, and perform basic to advanced math skills. I have substituted other subjects through 8th grade. I have privately tutored for the past 3 years while earning my Master of Arts in Education. I hold a Multicultural Specialist Credential and teach ESL.
