I look forward to an opportunity to tutor you or your child in reading, writing, English, test preparation, or math through algebra. I am a certified teacher with 20+ years' experience teaching and tutoring children and adults, including regular and special education students, gifted students, and ESOL students. I hold a Master's Degree in Education and have had extensive postgraduate training in the teaching of English as a Second Language and Reading.
I believe one of my greatest strengths as a tutor is my individualized approach to instruction, whereby I assess my student's current abilities, target specific areas of instruction, and develop lessons that specifically address individual needs and interests. I select or create materials that are appropriately leveled for each student and use techniques of guided instruction and independent practice that are effective in meeting their individual needs.
I believe that learning best occurs when students are challenged with tasks that refer to skills and knowledge just beyond their current level of mastery. This philosophy guides my planning and instructional delivery, and keeps my students interested, challenged, confident, and learning.
