Hello my name is Rolando. I graduated from Plantation High school and am currently attending Broward College and working towards my Industrial Management Degree. I have volunteered at a childcare facility where I tutored elementary age kids in math and spelling for about two years. I start by assessing their ability levels so I can find the best way to help each child. I make sure each child understands the basics in math - addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division facts to provide for a strong math foundation. I also make sure to be very positive and encouraging. Children that I tutor know that it is okay to make mistakes and get a problem wrong, but it is not okay to not try. I also try to provide real world situations in math. Word problems, using a deck of cards, and using money are just a few ways I can help them realize the importance of math in everyday life. With spelling, I teach little tricks and help with memorization.
I have also coached kids in baseball and basketball. I am very passionate about these two sports because I love playing them myself. Having a knowledgeable coach really makes a difference. Not only do I want to teach children the rules of sports and how to play, but also instill a good work ethic and self-confidence. As I grew up playing sports, I learned a lot of tips and would love to pass them on to the next generation.
I hope you find this helpful, thank you for taking the time to read this. Have a great day!
