As a certified teacher in grades K-6 since 2003, I have developed the skills that prepare students for the FCAT and other standardized tests. As a private tutor for the last five years, I have witnessed the many benefits students receive from the one on one help tutoring provides, resulting in increased test scores. Students grades and confidence improve as a direct result of tutoring. As an educator I know tutoring is the best way to assist your child academically whiling boosting his or her self-confidence.
As a Florida certified teacher (grades K-6) with an active license that doesn't expire until 2016 and over five years of full time teaching experience I can effectively teach elementary students in all facets of elementary education. I have improved my teaching skills through many workshops that include Melissa Forney's writing workshop, Mary Lewis' writing workshop, Advanced Reading Practices, and numerous ESOL endorsement courses(just to name a few)that help me address my students' learning styles. In addition, to my teaching experience I have also tutored students one on one for the last four years.
As a Florida certified teacher (grades K-6) I have developed many lessons that help students build effective study skills. Each student learns differently and all learning styles must be addressed. For example, some students learn audibly and remember a fact by hearing it and some students learn visually by seeing the fact written down. A good example of a lesson that I use for vocabulary is a five tiered way of learning. The lesson starts with having the student say the word, next he or she writes the word, after that the student writes the definition of the word, then he or she draws a picture of the word's meaning, and finally the student acts out the meaning of the word through role playing. Lessons like this really address all learning styles and I apply this method to most subjects. Another study tool I teach are thinking maps. Thinking maps are student created graphic organizers that help the student break down text into logical parts, like cause and effect, compare and contrast, classifying information, and multiple word meanings. Thinking maps develop critical thinking skills in students and increase reading comprehension throughout all subjects.
