I'm currently a freshman in college, though the credit hours I've acquired suggest I'm a current sophomore. I've experience with tutoring younger children, through community service. I've worked with students anywhere from kindergarten through seventh grade. A personal approach I take to tutoring is more of a listen-and-learn approach, whereas I listen and you learn. From personal experience I'd see some tutors read the work for their students and then, subtly, give them the answer by telling them the steps and answering their own questions. I may read the work to my students, if they dont fully understand it, and then I'll ask them what they think needs to be done, instead of telling them what needs to be done. From there, I determine where the error is made and how to correct it, and get the new information to stick and replace the old information. I seek to take basic corrective action, by eliminating the source of the problem or confusion, rather than fixing it right then and there, hoping that my student never makes that same mistake again.
I'm very well established in the English aspect of schooling, with some extensive knowledge of math. Personally, I've passed the FCAT with flying colors and I've done well on my SAT/ACT. Even now I help fellow classmates to understand certain materials in class, and with younger siblings and relatives, I'm always on call for answering difficult homework questions. As a Business major, I have to pay attention to a lot of details, because the slightest mistake can cause the biggest of consequences. Read, reread, and then summarize, if you can do that then you can understand any piece of literature put in front of you. With math, you read, reread, and then simplify, which counts as your summary. The key to doing great work is to take your time. And that's exactly what I plan to do with my students.
I'd taken 2 years of Algebra 1, the first being in middle school. I passed Algebra 1, in high school, with flying colors. I was always the one that the teacher directed others to in case they didn't understand. In our classrooms, we were to ask a fellow student before we were to ask the teacher. So, in a sense, I was tutoring my classmates.
In fifth grade my teacher made us take math quizes every day. We'd start off with addition, then on to subtraction, multiplication, division, fractions, decimals, etc. You weren't allowed to progess to the next test until you got a 100% on your current one. And when you finally reached the end of all the tests and passed, you'd start all over, only this time the questions were harder.
As an inspiring author, English is my favorite school subject. Throughout my high school career I'd taken twice as many English classes than any other subject. I work daily on writing poetry and/or short stories. the only way to get someone to better themselves in this subject is to get tehm to understand it. And that requires that there is a like of English writing.
Math is difficult for many people, myself not excluded. But Pre-Algebra is just a baby step above normal math. It's not as complicated as 2xy(319t+8x)=250ty yet it's not as easy as 2+2=4. I look at it as sort of a transition stage. It's not black, it's not white, it is however grey.
Learning to improve your reading skills takes more than reading and rereading what is on a page in front you. I aim to help students learn to like, an even love, reading. If there is a disconnection with the like of reading, the student can stare at the page, reading, yet not remember a word of the piece. The key is to find something they like and then to teach them to read about it, effectively.
Writing goes hand in hand with reading. If you don't like to write, you're not going to try your best to write anything. I try to get my students to find an interest in what they are writing about, especially if it's an essay. For example: A student's paper is about NASA. The student doesn't care for and has a lack of knowledge of NASA. If the student likes space, however I'd get them to try to write about how the many developments of NASA have put man on the moon and rovers on Mars.
