Success is a mutual reward! With each of my students, my main focus is on their specific needs and their learning styles. I base my lessons on the Illinois Learning Standards, my students' classroom expectations, and adding some fun for my students' engagement. I have taught many grade levels and excited to add these teaching strategies in my tutoring sessions. I use different styles of activities to get the students to develop math
, and writing
skills. Designed to fit each of my student's need, visuals, hands on activities, games, and specific learning tools are implemented in each of my lessons. To ensure a solid lesson, I am consistently updating myself and learning the methods of teaching in schools, for example, the new math.
First, I find it important to understand "what my students already know" in the subject matter; their "prior knowledge"is important in how I teach. My students are engaged in what they are learning and connecting new information to their own life; making connections. Secondly, I apply specific teaching strategies to their learning style. By combining these crucial factors, my students have succeeded in reaching their goals. Finally, I implement assessments to ensure each of my students understand and retain what they learned. My goal is to consistently follow through from one lesson to the next.
In the past ten years, I have aided and tutored students (K-12) in the school and home environment in the subject areas of math, reading, and writing, and ESL
. Specialize in effective strategies for elementary students in all subject areas, as well as ISAT preparation. Experience with middle school and high school Algebra
1 & 2, Geometry
, Writing Skills, and ACT
preparation,ESL, with high success rates. I have also worked with students who have special needs
or IEPs. I believe every child has the ability to learn if given the right tools and strategies!
