Dear potential students and parents,
I'm Ronald, and my background is with elementary and middle school age students. I have worked with the No Child Left Behind Initiative in West Palm Beach, Florida. This entailed working with students who scored low on their end of year comprehensive exams.

All of my students increased their scores by 20-50%.

My method of teaching is to teach by using positive reinforcement. For example, I do not correct a student by saying something like "That is not right", I use phrases like "are you sure" etc. I want to instill confidence in a student. This is the best method.

With elementary and middle school students, the best way to have students learn is to try and make it fun and present it in a way they can relate to.
The other main component is to clearly identify what is expected. Kids are smart and our job is to focus that intelligence.

I look forward to working with you.

Sincerely
Ronald

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have tutored for two years with elementary and middle school students in both reading and math. This was under the No Child Left Behind Initiative. These students scored low on FCAT examinations. My students increased there scores by 20-50% from initial assessment to conclusive assessment.

World History

A historian once remarked, "In order to know where you are going, you need to know where you have been". World history usually focuses on the fighting and the wars between European countries like England, France and Spain. In the last 200+ years, it has been about the U.S.(and it's allies), against European and Asian enemies. We've had the Mexican American war in the 19th century, Spanish American War at the turn, the (2) World Wars, Vietnam War, the Cold War and the Middle East Wars. The next wars will either be nuclear or cyber-warfare. The journey from there to here is interesting and exciting.

Writing

I am well versed in personal correspondence, business correspondence, essay writing, term papers, research papers and most other forms of writing.
