My passion has always been teaching and dancing.
I have the capability of helping others discover themselves, their capabilities and weaknesses and, in that, providing the necessary motivation for further success. I have attended two dyslexia
workshops. There I discovered the value of my approach: I not only motivate the students, I also analyze their learning techniques and creatively help them find solutions, their strengths that complement their weaknesses. I pass on that which my teachers were for me.
During my 25 years of living on the German
economy, I not only taught German children English
, I learned the German language
. I am fluent in reading
and my accent is not that thick.
Being that I was a freelancer in Germany, I also taught ballet
and creative dance for ages three to twelve. I myself took four years of ballet as a child, stopping after my first six months of toe dance. In 2010 I took and successfully resolved the first half of an education toward dance pedagogic.
When tutoring, my approach is quite simple. I begin by working on the subject at hand, observing the child's techniques and capabilities and increasing their awareness of the same. Then I analyze with 'tests,' the order of their learning methods (audial, visual, kinesthetic). From here, remaining on track with the given schoolwork, I offer a variety of learning methods possible within their strengths. Together we not only find how they can learn most effectively at home, but also what can be implemented into their classroom environment. We practice and enjoy these solutions, making them a part of their everyday lives.
Remember! Agatha Christie was dyslexic. I believe it's not so much what life gives to us, but what we make of it. And everyone was given some sort of valuable tools!
