I have extensive teaching experience including eight years of elementary classroom teaching. Also, my experience includes seven years of teaching English as a Second Language to adults, three years of teaching English Language Learners in an elementary district, and tutoring both adults and children in reading, language arts, math grades 1-4, and English as a Second Language.
I do a thorough assessment of each learner to develop individualized goals and plans for each student. With proper identification of skills that need work, I am able to employ specific reading strategies and best practices. Differentiation and scaffolding are integral parts of the tutoring. Throughout the process, there is ongoing progress monitoring. Thus, the student is able to grow in ability as well as self confidence in as short a period of time as possible. Of course, positive reinforcement is extensively used. Also, communication with the parent of the student is important in the process.
I am very passionate about my profession and have had many success stories. References are available.
