I am a tutor that likes to meet with the child and parents initially prior to starting the tutorial sessions. We all need to know what is expected from each other. Then, the sessions will start with materials at his/her level: textbooks and will eventually graduate to computer software in which we will integrate writing/art and/or music activities. We will also do around town field trips to make the material come to life. Whatever we are reading, the child should have a visual image in his/her mind of what the author is describing on the pages. For example, one can not assume a child knows what a metro rail ride is like if they have never had that experience. The hands-on approach will involve the total being of the child, while they are simultaneously learning. I have over twenty (20) years of teaching experience and I have found this to be a very valuable teaching tool with students from Prekindergarten to 6th grade as well as ten (10) years of administrative duties. I am certified by the State of Florida Department of Education with a Professional Educator’s Certificate with endorsements in the following areas: Administration/Supervision (Grades K-12) and Elementary Education (Grades 1 -6). My certificate is valid until June 30, 2018.
