Not quite sure if tutoring is for you or your child? Do you not enjoy learning or think your child enjoys learning? Not to fear Gessie is here to help you say yes to tutoring and yes to fun in learning. I believe that tutoring should be handled with custom care, very much like, raising children in the sense that no two children are alike; each child comes with their own unique hand-book. For instance, the experience you may have toilet training one may not be the same experience training the other. In regards to teaching, I would take on a similar approach with my students through the utilization of custom crafted lesson plans specific to the learning style and abilities of that particular student. In regards to learning styles and abilities, you have some children or rather people in general who are more hands on learners, there are others with photogenic memories, and then there are those other group of people who just need to hear the material once and they have grasped it. Are you not quite sure what group you or your child falls under?
I can help by being there as your tutor or your child's tutor to help you/him or her identify and address their learning style and abilities. How do I plan to do just that, do you ask? As a professional educator with seasoned experience working with children with special needs
I am no stranger to being patient, accommodating, versatile, dedicated, committed, flexible yet consistent, enthusiastic, stimulating, encouraging, and just down right fun. As you know, anything that has to do with the mind or learning can potentially take time that is why it is critically important to master the art
of being patient. I recognized early on in my academic as well as professional life that it is okay to know that everybody learns at his or her own pace. We should respect that known fact, encourage the pace in which a person learns, and meet him or her there. It is equally important to provide the student with a learning atmosphere that can stimulate growth and development both socially and academically. To create that organic atmosphere where a child not only has the license to be imaginative but to also be confident in the success of their learning growth and development, I start crafting that atmosphere that I previously stated by using hands-on lesson plans that are both creative and fun. When I create my lesson plans I am always mindful and ready to be accommodating, versatile, and flexible because you just never know what that time you spend tutoring will consist of or will require. What may be required of you on one day may call on completely different requirements on another day. It is for this reason that I cannot stress how well I have gotten at being versatile, accommodating, and flexible. I like knowing that I have the versatility to create a lesson plan on Monday that may call on the student to utilize their creative form at expression while a lesson plan on Thursday may ask for the student to dig deep and to stimulate their intellectual form at expression. Lastly I work to identify and address a child’s learning styles and abilities by being consistent. I am consistently dedicated to the task at hand, which is to take the child at hand from where he or she is presently in regards to learning and take him or her to where they want to be, successfully.
I hope that through the information that I have provided that you will find me suitable to be your tutor. I know without compunction that you will not regret it. I thank you in advance for your time and for your consideration.
