Hi, my name is David and I am a Bilingual elementary school teacher. I work closely with students to improve their test grades in the areas of Language Arts and Math. I believe that every child can learn and achieve their goals. My experience and results have shown that if you make learning a Fun experience for a child you can reach them and captivate their minds. In order for a child to succeed they must be involved and engaged in the learning process. Children are often intimidated by the idea of “Exams” and the pressure of having to pass. My technique is simple but effective:
1. I use the knowledge that the student already has to create personalized lessons that build on what they already know to reach their academic goals.
2. I break up the “Big Goal” into smaller and less intimidating goals that gradually increase in difficulty so that learning and test taking is actually an achievable aim for that student. When a child sees that they are making real progress and begin to “get it”, they become motivated to continue learning and develop the skills they learn.
I pride myself in the fact that in State Standardized tests all of my students have outscored their city counterparts.
I am knowledgeable in the new Common Core Standards as well as in No Child Left Behind Standards. I was involved in the past year in developing the Reading and Writing. Besides ELA & Math, I have plenty of experience with Social Studies as well as Science content. I am very familiar with reading comprehension techniques and have been heavily involved with after school and Saturday Academy as a way to increase student achievement on standardized tests.
Please contact me and let me know how I can help your child to be successful. I look forward to working with you and your child.
I am a NYC licensed 1-6 elementary school teacher, with 3 years experience in the areas of ELA, math, science and social studies. I have participated in the creation of my school's ELA and math curriculum as well as training for the grade teachers in both areas. I have also participated in Saturday ELA and Math Academy as well as ELA and math test preparation after school programs. I have training in the Common Core State Standards and my instruction is tied to them.
