Having been trained by and tutoring through Literacy Volunteers of America, I have discovered that teaching is my passion and wish to make it my vocation.
My teaching method is student-centered; pace is set according to each student's ability, thus ensuring that the student has thorough knowledge of the subject matter prior to moving forward. I identify each student's strongest learning style(s), i.e. visual, auditory, kinesthetic (learning via repetitive writing) and/or tactile. My lesson plans are developed with an emphasis on the learners strongest learning styles, and using materials relevant to the student's interests. Patience, humor and fun are key to the learning process, each of which I have in abundance. I am experienced in teaching reading, reading comprehension, writing, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation. I also teach basic computer skills and have found the computer to be a fun and effective teaching tool.
