My professional experience includes both public & private education in NY, VA, & FL. I have taught mathematics, science & language arts/English in all K-12 grades for over twenty years.
You will find that I use a variety of learning strategies, have a positive attitude, and am completely dependable. I establish teaching/tutoring relationships easily and help students overcome learning obstacles. I always make the best use of tutoring time and set reasonable/attainable teaching goals.
Thank you for your time and interest.
I have teaching certifications from both NY & VA in science 6-12. I have directed school-based homework help programs for grades K-3 in all subjects. In curriculum development, I was selected to help write technology and science standards for grades K-8. I routinely score assessment testing in reading, writing, mathematics, and science for grades 3-12. I have also developed summer magnet programs for grades 3-5.
I have taught all high school core subjects in a self-contained classroom for students with learning issues such as Asperger's, ADD/ADHD, dyslexia, and audio/visual tracking difficulties. My other special needs teaching has included math, science, and language arts for students in grades 3-8, both self-contained and mainstreamed. I have studied and developed many successful strategies over more than ten years to assist students with learning differences. My ability to divide learning into manageable chunks with the use of color coding and manipulatives helps students see concepts more clearly. Students naturally benefit from visual, hands-on instruction which is not only easier-to-learn, but also aids in learning retention.
Classroom teachers offer many study tips including outlining, note-taking, and the use of flash cards. These tools are important, but so is the ability to determine what content will be on quizzes and tests--what do they really need to know in each chapter or unit? Helping students develop long-term, effective study skills is a fundamental step in lifelong learning. The sooner students are shown ways to remember facts and truly understand concepts, the easier and less stressful their education becomes. Study skills can be learned and improved through a variety of ways, depending on the person's learning style and age. Experiencing learning success is a key motivating factor and I can help make the process of learning both more enjoyable and more productive.
The Test of Essential Academic Skills [TEAS] has 170 multiple choice questions covering English, Reading, Math, and Science. It is important to prepare effectively for the TEAS and to understand the strategies you need to use in answering the questions correctly. I have developed my own strategy guides, which I provide for each TEAS student. The TEAS does not allow you to use a calculator, so most students need a mathematics refresher before taking this test. The science questions cover topics that most students haven't studied for awhile, so this area also needs preparation. Since I have taught and tutored in these subject areas, I can help ensure your TEAS success.
Exceptional! — Regina has tutored my son a few times to improve his ACT scores. He has expressed she is thorough and explains things that help him understand English in ways he hasn't before. We are praying for a better score, but no matter what, Regina has made a difference in general for him in all areas of the ACT test. Thank you Regina! ...
