My main purpose in tutoring others is to enable you to realize your full potential and then to act upon that potential in order to unlock what is already on the inside of you. Every student has the ability to learn and to overcome those seemingly insurmountable obstacles. The only aspect of human character that creates distance between a student and his or her accomplishments is fear.
Therefore, I intend on not only teaching you your subjects that need to be learned but I will teach a complete renewal of the mind so that you may know that you are well equipped to learn on your own. This experience will be a learning process for the both of us. I am currently considering becoming a teacher. Therefore, this will be a great opportunity that will prepare me for the future.
My focus is to help students realize the power that is within them already and to allow them to see the possibilities that come from motivation and perspective. In other words, students can look at their "learning disabilities" as exciting challenges instead of problems. They will then be able to view their obstacles in light of a victory and they will be forever confident that through hard work, anything can be achieved. I will do my best to take the focus off of me and to place it on the student. I will do everything within my power to motivate my student to work to the best of his or her ability.
My journey in receiving my associate's degree at Macomb Community College has well prepared me to help those who need academic assistance. Two year's worth of classes has provided me with a well-rounded education. I am currently at Baker College, where I am obtaining my CDA (Child Development Credential), and I am considering going on to receive my bachelor's degree in elementary education. Throughout my school years, I have helped tutor friends as well as family members, mainly in mathematics and chemistry. The students who received help obtained satisfactory grades while being taught. My method of teaching involves focusing on the student and trying to understand the way that he or she learns. For example, I would figure out something that is of interest to the student and then I would incorporate it into what that student needs to learn. In this way, the student feels valued and also understands the material.
I have taken many math classes in high school and I have received nothing lower than a B. Algebra is my favorite category of math and therefore, I believe I am the most efficient at teaching this type of math.
Not only have I taught at my non-denominational church, I have also completed the first year of Life Bible Institute. I have a passion for God and a relationship with Him that allows me to hear Him every day. Eventually, I want to go into the ministry and teach the bible.
I recently finished classes necessary in order to obtain my CDA, or child development associate credential. Therefore, I have taken classes that pertain to teaching young children. Also, I currently work at an early childhood learning center. I prepare 3 to 5 year olds for Kindergarten.
As I was taking the test for certification in this subject, I realized that I have retained all of this information that I learned in elementary. I have a passion for science and my goal is to inspire children to seek out interesting scientific facts, even if science is not their favorite subject.
I have an extreme love for books and therefore, I am careful to examine every element that is incorporated into them. I pay attention to minute details that many other readers would over look.
I work at an Early Childhood Learning Center with a preschool program. We have a period throughout the day when we teach our 3-5 year old children how to sound out their letters and their words. Sometimes we use flash cards and simple worksheets. However, we mostly go over letters throughout the day instead of teaching them on paper.
