Hello perspective students and parents,

I would like to introduce myself to you. My name is Ms. Penelope H. Throughout my adulthood I have worked with children in many positions, such as; Sunday school teacher, YWCA Youth Leader, Cheerleader coach, and Club Advisor. Academically, I have been a teacher’s assistant, vocational education technician (paraprofessional), tutor, and a special education teacher.

My attributes include effective listening and communication skills; effective organizational skills; creativity; pleasing personality; maintain confidentiality; objective and impartial; enthusiastic and motivated. I am extremely passionate about working with all students from various backgrounds, and I am willing to go the extra mile in order to meet the educational needs these students. With support, motivation and parental involvement, I believe all children can learn despite their circumstances.

This past school year, I worked with Club Z, an in-home tutorial program. I tutored students in math and reading, ranging from elementary and middle school grades. My tutorial methods include reading strategies, basic sight words to high frequency sight words, and interactive web sites. Math strategies include the use of addition, subtraction, and multiplication flash cards, games and puzzles, and math interactive web sites.

My goal as a tutor is to teach students to develop good study skills, to master subject matter, and to motivate them to learn.
