Hello and thank you for letting me have the opportunity to introduce myself and summarize the academical advancement you or your student can get.
I have had the chance to tutor classmates and friends since I was in middle school. My approach to get trailing or enthusiastic students advance academically has worked for all of my students.
Very recently I had the opportunity to tutor a middle school student to become a gold-medal graduate, who is happily attending a Magnet school. It was very satisfying to share the pride of success with parents.
I help my students with advancement in grades, provide alternative approaches to accomplish assignments and if desired to pick up a new skill. If applicable, I create comparison's to the students' profession or explain the task at hand in manner that is understandable to the student. During tutoring sessions, I do not provide solutions, rather provide ways to achieve the solution, which serves as practice and is better for understanding and remembering the approach.
I have gone through the language change situation first hand. In fact, English was my third language to learn.
Luckily for me, I already had the chance to study the English alphabet and had picked up on a several dozen words and some phrases - just enough to hold simple conversations. When being placed in the ESL class, I strove to place in ESL 2 to take on a little challenge, as well as to hear others speak much better than I did. Thanks to the eagerness and the wonderful teachers, I succeeded and the next summer that same teacher gave me the opportunity to be the Teacher's Assistant for ESL 2.
After that, I have had the opportunity to assist other students who faced the challenge of learning a new language.
As mentioned before, English was my third language to learn. I have studied the Armenian and Russian languages on college level and that knowledge helped me pick up and excel on the third language. I have used the grammar and vocabulary rules and skills in my advantage - when I was in a situation where I had difficulty understanding what was being taught I would compare the same rules from my other languages and through compare and contrast method would understand the topic and remember its usage.
The same skill-set will be provided for your student and other methods will be used to advance the knowledge of the student.
