I can assist with just about any educational service need you may have. I offer comprehensive SAT preparation, as well as assistance with the core subjects for K-12, and some basic college courses.
I have a BA from Olivet Nazarene University. I have 2 years classroom teaching experience, as well as 5 years tutoring experience in a wide variety of subjects and ages.
Of my students who have received regular instruction for more than three sessions, 100% of them have gone away understanding the necessary material and feeling more confident in themselves.
One way I help students achieve success is that I build their confidence by helping them discover the answers themselves. I do this by following a 4-step method that is well recognized in various sectors of the economy as one of the best training methods around:
1. I show them how to do it
2. I do it with their help
3. Have them do it with my help
4. They do it on their own
We always work at the student's pace and always use encouraging words to help the student build confidence in their own ability to learn. I also identify the necessary building blocks that are missing and work with my students on learning and improving those, so that the current material will then begin to make more sense. At the same time, I work with each student on the current coursework to ensure that they get caught up, instead of falling further behind.
I am a qualified Elementary tutor, because I am proficient in the variety of elementary subjects. I have successfully tutored numerous elementary students, mostly with Avenue Family Center (Michigan City, IN). I have also substitute taught in upper elementary classrooms in Michigan City Area Schools.
In study skills tutoring, I work with students in developing good study skills and habits that will enable them to get the most out of their lessons, school books, time, teachers, and other educational tools provided to them. As a result of these skills and habits, each student will be able to prove their increased learning by whatever means they are asked.
