I am an educator with 14 years' experience teaching English to at-risk students and directing an alternative school for potential drop-outs. I firmly believe I am responsible for helping and encouraging over 500 students to graduate from high school who may not have.
I follow the theory of using multiple intelligences. I know every student can succeed; all a teacher has to do is find his or her learning style and cater to it.
In my experience as an alternative school director, it was the one-on-one method that took my students from straight F's all the way to the graduation stage. Relationship building is also extremely important in getting through to students. So many kids who struggle do so because they have had a bad experience with a teacher which has turned them off. When I connect with kids on a personal level, I turn around their attitude about school. Until their minds are open, they cannot succeed.
I can't wait to hear from you and meet your student and get him or her on the path to better grades and graduation!
