Welcome, it is my great pleasure to give you an educational experience that has been proven over and over in different cultural backgrounds and different levels. I currently tutor adults seeking their high school diploma and students in grades first through twelth grade. I have taught individuals from Cambodia, Puerto Rico, India and Jamaica. I have the unique ability due to my social work background to understand my student’s needs and tailor their tutoring to meet their specific needs. I have successfully helped special need students become mainstreamed into regular classes. I work with schools and education coordinators when necessary. I am asked by former parents to help their students even when they have moved to other states. During the summer, I contract with area counties to work with their summer programs to prepare students for the next school year. I am confident that my skills can be an asset to you and you child/ children.
My method of tutoring is to first find out what the students knows through an initial evaluation done in a unique child friendly way.They may not be aware that they are being assessed. Next, I let the student tell me what they do not like about the subject we are working on and then show them fun and interactive ways to make the subject enjoyable, while they are learning. Once the fear of the subject have been exposed and eliminated, teaching them the techniques to successfully solve and locate the answers to math concepts can be easily achieved. Not only will your child love learning but the joy you will see in your child will also bring you joy as well. My tutoring will enrich your life.
In summary, I am multi-faceted, efficient and a reliable educational professional with 20+ years of experience in working with adults and children.
Learning math is like connecting pieces of a puzzle. To see the big picture correctly all the pieces must be in their proper place. Algebra is just a component of the puzzle. I will help you find the proper place where it belongs so that you will see how it connects to lower and upper math concepts. Let's connect these pieces together.
"Putting one foot in front of the other", is a simple motion but crucial if one is to move forward from one point to another under their own power. Algebra, is this step that carries one from a basic math concept to higher math. My unique style gives students the confidence they need to make those steps and move forward.
I have received by B.S. in Elementary Education with a GPA of 3.27. I have also been educating students for over twenty years. I have received my Paraprofessional Certificate from Henry Ford Community College to teach for and qualified under No Child Left Behind.
Elementary math is just that -- elementary -- once you learn the connections/relationship between one concept and another. For example, to find an answer for a division problem, look for the multiple of the numbers. This type of technique gives students the confidence they need to tackle any math problems by breaking it up into smaller components that they recognize. Then math can truly be elementary.
I learned to play the flute when I was in the 5th grade. I took private music lessons and also taught music appreciation and instrumental music for two years in Michigan. I auditioned and was selected to play in the Jacksonville Symphony Orchestra as well as taught my daughter to play the piano.
I am qualified in GED preparation. Fear not, your life skills with my experience will give you the confidence you need.
When we think of our surroundings it is very difficult not to see Geometry in something. What is Geometry? It is your house, your car, your children, yourself? Mathematically, Geometry is "the branch of mathematics concerned with the properties and relations of points, lines, surfaces, solids, and higher dimensional analogs." Let me show you Geometry all around you.
Reading and comprehending what you reading are not the same. Having the techniques to decipher and retain information can be taught. This is what I would like to help you achieve.
