I bet the day you found out you were going to be a parent was the day you started having high hopes and wonderful dreams for your child, and part of those hopes and dreams were that they get a great education and go on to have a fulfilling career; I know because I'm a parent myself and I did the exact same thing. I also know how difficult it can be to sit back and watch your child struggle in school after you've done everything in your power to help them get through the never ending parade of homework assignments, projects, and flashcards.
Hello, my name is Melissa and I am not only the mother of five but I am also an Indiana licensed teacher who has worked in the classroom for over five years. I have taught all subjects and all types of children but still stick to the philosophy, "All children can learn if they are taught in a manner that suites them." This is where my parent hat comes off and my teacher hat goes on. As a parent, I never knew there were different learning styles, I just thought that if you drilled a kid long enough they would eventually pick up on something. It wasn't until I began teaching that I learned to appreciate that some children learn better through music, art, writing, doing, touching, watching, or even just listening. I love tutoring students because this is where I can make the biggest impact. I get to understand how that child learns best, work with them one-on-one teaching the subject matter in a manner that works for them, and then watch them morph into the shining star they were meant to be.
I do have to admit, it's not all fun and games though. There will be pretests so I can find out exactly what your student is missing, there will be, what we teachers like to call, formative tests so we can see the progress your child is making and also to see if your child is understanding what I am teaching them, and then there will be final tests so we can see how far the student has come and what has been learned. Oh no, it is not all fun and games it is a lot of hard work, but my mission is to give the illusion that it is fun and games instead of more boring stuff that they didn't understand at school in the first place.
Are you tired of fighting over homework and ready to pull your hair out because you're out of ideas on how help your son or daughter get better grades? If this is you, than you need me. I've been there and I know how to get you past this hurdle so you can focus on more important things with your child.
