During my time in the teaching profession, I have found that I enjoy the versatility of combining multiple academic disciplines. I am a very creative person and enjoy the opportunity to incorporate my creativity into the lessons that I teach. Because I am a creative thinker, having multiple class contents that I can think through and come up with a creative and new way to effectively teach it is an exciting challenge for me. I have taught multiple classes in middle and high school. In the middle school, I taught Basic Math, College Prep and Honors Pre-Algebra, Honors Biology (8th grade), 7th and 8th grade General Science, English, Study Skills,and Physical Education. In the high school, I taught College Prep Algebra 1, College Prep Psychology, and AP Psychology.
I have many years experience teaching and tutoring students with ADD/ADHD. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Biblical Studies/Psychology and have taken many classes on the subject of ADD/ADHD. Many of my past students have had to deal with their ADD/ADHD in a classroom setting. I as their teacher had to make sure that they were focused and learning the material. I have worked one on one with students who struggle with ADD/ADHD and have had many successes. One student had trouble taking notes from the board and writing them in his notebook. I was able to teach him to hear certain words while still being focused on the lesson as a whole and write down only the important information. I have also tutored students who forget something 5 minutes after it has been explained. With them, I was able to increase their retention span and enable them to grasp the information and learn it before diverting their attention to something more interesting.
I have many years experience tutoring elementary students in all subjects. I have tutored 3rd grade through 6th grade math, reading comprehension, science, history, and study skills. When I tutor, I make sure to devote as much time as the student needs so they may master each lesson. I make sure to take time to explain every little detail so the student can have confidence that once I leave they still know how to complete the lesson. (ex: Teaching about Place Value - I talk about each individual place value, where each belongs when looking at numbers as a whole, how each are said, why they matter, etc.)
