I provide curriculum tutoring based upon the state of Michigan and national curriculum standards. The student’s learning is focused on their individuality and real-life experiences. Students are assessed and placed in a program based upon differentiated instruction. They are provided the basic skills needed to be productive workers, family members, and members of society. These skills are accomplished through the development of a student’s listening, reading, speaking, and writing skills. The student is encouraged to utilize his/her multiple intelligence to internalize the use of phonics, vocabulary, spelling, literary genres, recall, comprehension, response, and mastery of the English language. I am a Michigan certified educator of students from grades K-12. My credentials include: a BS in Elementary Education, an MEd in Reading with an endorsed reading specialist certification, an Ed Specialist endorsement and certification in Learning Disabilities, and a post grad marketing certification. I am an alumna of Wayne State University and The University of Phoenix.
All students need to be taught in a literacy rich environment. As an educator I get to know the student and their learning style. Knowing what interests the student helps when developing his/her lesson plans.
Meeting the student where they are and building from their strengths gives them a sense of success. Multiple means of educating (visual, oral, active, repetition, collaboration, peer groups, review, practice, scaffolding, note taking, modeling, implicit and explicit instruction) enhance student productivity. K-6 students are emerged in vocabulary building activities, authentic means of learning and assessment, reading for comprehension (story element knowledge), knowledge of letters and their sounds, elements of word structure (parts of speech, usage, spelling). They are taught about numbers (place value, identification, methods of operation) and problem solving skills. Students learn about their history, their cultures and the cultures of other cultures, their societies, behavior, and countries. They study the earth and all of its geographic wonders. They are engulfed in the physical and material elements through scientific hypothesis, evaluation, and measurements. All students are capable of learning once you know who they are.
I currently have an S.O.M. teacher's certification to teach Elementary K-5 all subjects, in a self contained classroom.
Each student is given an initial oral and written English assessment to determine their interests, strengths, and weaknesses. An individualized instructional plan will be used to enhance their strengths and build on their weaknesses. Instruction will be in line with grade level state of Michigan and national curriculum standards. Explicit and direct instruction will be used to deliver the five core reading elements (phonological awareness, phonics, reading fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension). Instruction will be engaging and fun with the use of modeling, practice, reinforcement, manipulative, recording, read aloud, listening, written reflection, and comprehension
The study of grammar (phonology, phonetics, morphology, semantics, syntax, and pragmatics) can be fun and interesting. Students learn parts of speech and written and oral language usage. The rules engaging the use of language can be mastered by incorporating authentic experiences in the lessons. Assessment and Individualized lesson planning help in student accommodation and advancement. Explicit and direct instruction model usage, create practice, reinforcement, and gradual release toward mastering the English language. Manipulative and worksheets are used for reinforcement.
Reading can be fun. Students are assessed to see what their current reading level is and where they may have some existing weaknesses. A plan is developed and a student reading prescription is enforced. Students are introduced to vocabulary building exercises for words in the text. Spelling patterns and word meanings are reinforced for comprehension correct word pronunciation. Initial and subsequent readings are done focusing on the story elements (theme, setting, plot, characters). Students read aloud, discuss, retell, and reflect on the story for further comprehension. Manipulative, reading assignments, worksheets, oral and written assessment reinforce student comprehension
I have worked with students in an inclusive environment (regular education classroom). I have a post-Master's certification as an Ed Specialist in Learning disabilities with the State of Michigan, the data I collect from oral and written assessments assist in providing an individualized student tutoring plan. The use of authentic forms of instruction helps students achieve mastery in their academics. Students are taught through the use of individualized differentiated instruction.
Students are encouraged to acquire knowledge of words and word meanings through the use of content words, common words, phrases, and expressions. Students learn word definitions, parts of speech, and usage through explicit instruction and exposure. Students are engaged in independent word-learning strategies (read aloud and independent reading, words in text, written, oral expression, and dictionary usage). Vocabulary is learned using real world experiences.
Students learn to write with a purpose. They learn to consider audience, genre (fiction, fantasy, fable, persuasive, narrative, expository, fiction, nonfiction, etc...), sentence structure, grammar, paragraphs, main idea, supporting details, closure, and vocabulary development. They review or learn the elements of sentence writing, paragraphs, and paper writing. The learn the steps of the writing process and evaluation of them.
