Being a teacher means motivating and caring about students and giving them the DESIRE TO SUCCEED! As a parent of an underachiever, I found the key to get my son motivated and he will graduate with his master's degree in December 2010. Because of his 31 ACT score, he went to college free on scholarships. He learned to take pride in his work and I was able to sit back and watch him mature and grow intellectually, emotionally, as well as physically, when he became hooked on learning!
I believe the thirst for knowledge is somewhere inside every individual. As a public and private school teacher in Arizona, Texas, and Mississippi, I found that classroom teachers do not have the time needed to draw out the best in every student. Occasionally, we have those magic moments when the light clicks on in a student's mind and they are changed into an individual full of intellectual curiosity; but, this experience is far too rare. Most teachers are crunched for time and getting one-on-one with a slow starter is a luxury in most school settings.
As a tutor, however, the opposite is true. Working closely with one person or a small group, helps the student be more accountable and the teacher gain insight. Learning what motivates each student is my goal as I acquire the tricks how to get them excited about that subject they hate. Usually, they have put up a mental block that hinders their understanding. With time and tender care, I can help most students OF ANY AGE push down those barriers which limit them and learn the skills that can make them SHINE. This enables them to rise to the top and the thrill of success becomes a motivation in itself.
Let me try to help. The end to your worries may just be just one decision away. The decision to let me help you become the best and embrace school success. Let the lessons begin!!!
