For over 12 years I have worked in education as a substitute teacher, a teacher's assistant, and a tutor. While subbing I have worked with a very diverse group of students in all grade levels in all subjects including math, science, social studies, and study skills.
During my 7 years at a Suburban Middle School I worked as a teacher's assistant teaching math, science, social studies study skills and test taking. I taught in class room settings, small groups and one-on-one sessions. Additionally my duties included working with students in elementary math, Pre-Algebra and Algebra I, science concepts, history and social studies, note takings, and providing extra help when needed.
I have tutored students for over 6 years for the school district and independently in math, science, social studies, note taking and study skills. I am available for home visits, meeting at libraries or other public buildings.
For five years on Tuesday's and Thursday's I supervised an after school Homework Club where students received help in all subjects.
An important part of learning is to believe in your self, not be afraid to make a mistake and have effective study skills. These are traits that I work on with students to improve their learning skills.
I bring a positive attitude, a sense of humor, and the ability to make learning interesting.
