I was fortunate enough to have several amazing teachers, and that has led to my interest in teaching and helping people succeed. I have my B.A in Children's Literature and 8 years of tutoring experience. I have also worked as a teacher's aide/paraprofessional in a public school for six years.
I specialize in tutoring ESL (for adults and youth), English, Reading, Phonics, Reading Comprehension, Literature, Spelling, Writing (ages 4 to 12), and Grammar. I want kids to know that learning can be fun, so I often teach using educational games, some of which I create myself. I have more than six years of experience working with kids with special needs as well. To increase motivation I often incorporate student's interests (whether it's baseball, basketball, dance, or comics, etc). into their reading and writing lesson topics and homework assignments.
I have more than six years of experience working with students with ADD/ADHD as a tutor, and a paraprofessional (in a public school). A few techniques I have used to help kids do their best include: the use of fidget "toys", incorporating movement (and/or movement breaks) into the lesson, and setting up or rearranging an environment to enhance concentration. I enjoy working with all children, and helping them become as independent as possible.
I am an experienced tutor with a B.A. in Children's Literature, and I have worked as a paraprofessional in a public school for six years. My main role, (as a paraprofessional), was to help students with Aspergers, (and other special needs) to become as independent as possible. This involved helping students reach their individualized education plan (IEP) goals, and integrate support services, (occupational therapy, physical therapy, and speech therapy), as part of their daily schedule. My classroom experience has been in mainstream and self-contained settings. I am familiar with implementing fidget toys to help increase focus, and modifying lessons as needed to encourage as much success as possible.
I am an experienced tutor with a B.A. in Children's Literature. I have worked as an aide in a public school for six years. I currently teach writing classes (at an enrichment program) to second and third graders. I have helped students in grades K-6 in all subjects for more than 8 years.
I have spent six years working as a paraprofessional in a public school, and three of those years were in a kindergarten classroom. Phonics is a major part of the kindergarten curriculum, and I have also gained experience using phonics (sounding out, and blending) when tutoring young kids, and helping them learn how to read, increase their reading fluency, and write.
A rare gem! — Ami is a very patient and attentive tutor. My 7-yr-old son, who warms up over time, gravitated toward her right away in his first session with her. She makes learning reading fun, and this was the key for hiring her. My son has tried other tutors, but the lessons were boring for him. She is able to spark my son's love for reading. This is a tremendous gift Ami has given me. Thank you! ...
