Dear Parents and Students;
Have you dreamed of being the at the top of your class? Have you ever wanted to take a test and know for sure that you got an A? Do you want to answer questions in class correctly and blow away your teachers with what you know?
Here's some great news: I am here to help!!!
My name is Raymond E., but feel free to call me Ray. I have been in education helping children with a wide range of needs learn at the highest level for the past six years. Ensuring a high quality education to all my students is one thing that I am dedicated to and take much pride in. I graduated from Morehouse College with a bachelor's degree in Sociology and from the University of Southern California with a Master of Arts in Teaching. I have taught and tutored students from grades 2 - 8 in reading, language arts, and mathematics since 2007. I am fully certified to teach grades K - 5, as well as middle school math. Every year, my students have experienced enormous gains on standardized tests such as the CRCT, ITBS, and Performance Series Scantron Tests.
I approach each tutorial session with a data driven approach, which mean thats I pinpoint and develop the specific academic needs of the child. Not only will I strengthen his or her weaknesses, but enrich his or her strengths as well. I often use multiple teaching strategies, manipulatives, technology, and relevant examples to ensure that students are mastering the material. During each session, I do informal assessments that work toward the development of long term memory skills. FInally, simply understanding the material is not the end goal. The purpose of my tutorial sessions are to move my students toward exceeding standards for their grade level. With consistency and diligence, I believe all student can reach this high level of achievement.
To keep parents informed and engaged, I provide weekly progress reports displaying the progression of their student. In addition, I provide online and/or print resources for supplementing the skills we are covering. With these resources, parents can work with their children and witness their growth first hand. There is nothing more fulfilling than seeing the ones your care about grow in the areas that matter most, and that is what I work toward providing for my families.
My vow to you all is to deliver high quality instruction to each of my students that will greatly increase their knowledge base as well as their love for learning. This has been and will always be my standard for instruction.
I look forward to working with you!
