Tutoring has been, & still is, my main passion.
I have a total of just over 2 years of tutoring experience in phonics, grammar, handwriting, English, reading, spelling, K - 3rd grade math, social studies, American/World History, & basic creative writing.
I received my tutor training on, and continue to use, the Applied Scholastics Achievement Program, enabling students to see what something they are studying looks like, through pictures, sketching, using wood blocks, paper clips, rubber bands, etc. to demonstrate a concept in order to see how that is, clay demonstrations to get the same result, working with the student and materials on a gradient, and helping them clear up any words or symbols not fully understood in their studies.
I have gotten great results using this program with students I have had, both children & adults, & I personally find it the most rewarding when I see a student's face light up when they not only thoroughly understand what they are studying, but when they tell me they can APPLY what they are studying. In this way, everyone wins.
