Hi, my name is Alisha! I enjoy working with elementary students and have for twelve years. I am a paraprofessional with a degree in Elementary Education from Fort Hays State University. I have had the opportunities to work in some incredible reading programs: Success for All and Fast ForWord. Although Reading and Math are mainly what I have tutored students in before, I will gladly take any elementary student in any subject area. If I don't have the material, I will get it.
When I tutor students I customize lessons to meet their needs. I will start out by getting to know a student and ask what are her interest and thoughts on her work. Students coming to work on reading I will find reading material that will pertain to their interest. I also have taken request from teachers and worked on the material the teacher has sent and supplemented their homework as well. For all content areas I try to make thing as interactive and hands on as possible. I will take the time to review study, test, and organizational skills if requested. My goal is to make sure the students feel confident and have tools to be successful.
