I am a former AVID Program Coordinator and Lead Tutor for Fairfax County Public Schools. I am also a former after school teacher at Georgetown Day School. I have worked with Elementary, Middle, and High School students both in one-on-one and group settings supporting them with their academic needs. I have regularly used Costa's Level of Thinking to help facilitate higher levels of thought process and help students to arrive at their own conclusions. Rather than simply telling students the answers to questions they may have, I prefer to help them arrive at the answers by using what they already know. This has proven most effective for my students, and this is what I would like to bring to your student.
