I bring 12 years of experience working with young people and 25 years of experience outside of academia. Working with young people is something that I thoroughly enjoy. I bring a positive attitude, a sense of humor, and the ability to make learning interesting.
I worked for a Suburban Middle School for 7 years as a teacher's assistant in math, science and social studies classes. My main duties include working with students in elementary math, Pre-Algebra and Algebra I, science concepts, history and social studies, taking notes, and providing extra help when needed.
I work in classrooms assisting all the students, in small groups and one-on-one. I have tutored many students both for the district and independently. In addition to the math tutoring, I work on the student's self-esteem, positive attitude and how to learn from their mistakes.
For five years I supervised the homework club which met two times a week, where students received help in all subjects.
I worked with many students of all levels teaching more efficient ways to learn and how to prioritize work assignments. To improve study skills by improving note taking and reading comprehension.
