My name is Angelique, and I am a mother of six children. I home school all of them. The range is from pre-school to college, so I know my stuff for each grade level.
My daughter just turned 16, and she is registered for dual enrollment. In fact, by December of this year, she will have her AA by the tender age of 17. Imagine that!
I also have a 15 year old son who is at grade level, however, he has learned non-traditional subjects that are more of a vocational type of learning (construction, mainly). He is also getting ready to dual enroll and has started an apprenticeship as a black smith.
My 8 year old son is finishing the fourth grade even though he is supposed to be in third grade this year.
The other two are 4 and 6 respectively, and are almost done with first grade.
So, as you see, I am able to teach multiple levels of curricula to a variety of ages, and I have been successful in doing so. I also am familiar with working with a student in a one-on-one setting on a daily basis. Basically, home schooling is like tutoring your children full time, and I have a lot of experience with that. I have been doing it since the beginning of their school careers.
I have an AA degree in Mathematical Education, and one more year added to that. I have attended Bucknell University (with a GPA of 4.0), MS Gulf Coast C.C., Lake-Sumter C.C., and Metropolitan State College of Denver. I earned my degree from Lake-Sumter C.C., and graduated cum laude.
At Metropolitan State College of Denver, I tutored a 4th grade boy in all of his subjects (especially reading) for one year. When we started, he was receiving a D grade, and when we finished, he was receiving a high B grade. So, it was a successful venture. I also started observing and helping out in a classroom as part of my studies in a downtown school in Denver. Unfortunately, I needed to move out of the area, so I did not have the opportunity to finish my degree. From then on, I decided that I would spend my time teaching my children and would finish the degree when I could.
Education is important to me, and I will finish someday; however, right now, my kids' education is the priority. I decided to become a tutor because it is something I am very good at. I have been good at this job since high school (I tutored peers then as well). It also offers me the opportunity to continue to home school my children, which I feel, is the best I can offer them.
I mostly do private tutoring, but have joined WyzAnt in order to meet students.
I hope that I can offer my best to you as well and look forward to servicing your needs.
