First and foremost, I enjoy teaching, and establishing a rapport with my students. I love my subject area, English, and consider myself a devout bibliophile. If hired as a tutor, I would work toward transmitting my passion for reading to the youth I am working with.
During my teaching career, many of my students had their work published in children's poetry anthologies. I would want to continue this tradition with the child I would be tutoring, by encouraging him/her to write in various genres.
I am also cognizant of the fact that students learn in different ways. I would use manipulatives, CDs, read alouds, etc. to ensure that the child I would be tutoring is successful in learning.
