Well hello! My name is Chris and I've been in education, in one capacity or another, for 13 years. I am a certified teacher for grades K - 9 and I am endorsed in both Language Arts and Social Science.
I have taught Kindergarten, first and third grade. I have also tutored one-on-one, online for a homework help site and at a tutoring center.
As a teacher, I taught all subjects in the classroom but my focus for tutoring is English and all aspects of it, from Language Arts (grammar) to literature.
As a teacher and as a tutor, I modify my teaching style to fit a variety of learning styles and abilities.
With younger children, I sometimes use a concrete reward (stickers, scented stamps) and with older children, I sometimes use a delayed reward (goal-setting for bigger reward).
