Knowledge is power but we all need a little help to understand and retain the knowledge.
Education and working with kids is a passion of mine. I have a BA in History from CSULB with a certificate of completion of the CBEST. I was born with dyslexia so I know what it's like to struggle with certain subjects and assignments. My favorite quote is,"failure inspires winners and failure defeats losers". I have experience in tutoring, and I am currently working part-time for a nonprofit company called Alliance Of Abilities. It's a day program that educates, mentors, and teaches adults with mental and physical disabilities: Autism, Down syndrome, and extreme to mild retardation. I also manage my own business a mobile application company.
My personal tutoring methods consist of 7 steps. For starters, building a relationship with the student equals trust. Second, I want to understanding why he or she is having difficulties in the subject. Next, I will simulate the student to the subject to show why the subject or work is important for his or her personal life or career. A key to a child's educational development is finding the best method for the student to learn and retain the information: visual, writing, or hearing. Also, an important part of tutoring is showing the student his available resources to find the answer. And last but not least is patience. All teachers or tutors need patience. Patience is imperative. When it's all said and done, a students independence is the overall goal. Educating the student to seek the answer for himself. A truly self-reliant person finds his weak link and strengthens it.
My Subjects of interests are History, Geography, Political Science, and English. With my experience, and my personal battles with dyslexia, I feel my qualities are right for the job.
