My name is Erin and I've been involved in the education field for over fifteen years as a both a regular ed. teacher and a special ed. teacher. I was also a classroom aide while in college as well as a swim instructor and life guard. I'm good working with students of special needs, advanced placement students and students who are in between.
I love teaching, and want to help but if a student is beyond reluctant and is fighting the process, I will have a talk with the parents. I do not want to waste the parent's time or money if the fit isn't right or if defiance is causing learning to be disrupted. That said, I am more than capable of working with students with behavior problems. I did my student teaching in South Central Los Angeles and my classroom work in an urban setting.
I would encourage parents to talk to me if they have questions about the progress of our tutoring sessions as well as what they could do to help. I like to keep an open line of communication so that everyone is on the same page and there are no surprises.
I do hope I can help your child get over the stumbling block that is keeping them from success.
