First, I would like to say that I believe every child can learn. It may take a while to find the right style or it may take a bit longer than traditional, but each child has the ability to learn. I personally like to take the time a child needs to gain a good foundation in the learning process. Missed steps always seem to come back as other problems later on. I feel a teacher has to be enthusiastic about learning. If the tutor or teacher is excited about teaching the subject, then the child will usually be excited about learning it. Actually, that goes for children or adults. My parents were both teachers and I learned my patience and teaching strategies through their wise guidance. I come from a background of teaching K-3, 4th, and 12th grades plus tutoring ages 5-13. Currently I have a Masters in Human Development, a Multi-subject CLEAR Teaching Credential, and am completing my Ph.D.
