I have worked as a teacher assistant for many years now. My experience has led me to tutor and assist students ranging from grades Pre-K to the fourth grade. I have seen the best teachers use methods that would encourage students, make them appreciate the subject and want to know more about it. I have never enjoyed, during my time in Elementary, being talked down to by anyone assisting me. For this reason, I try to see the student as an equal who is learning, and does not need to be talked down too. They are asking for help, and my job is to assist and see if we can work together to make the subject more enjoyable.
