Thank you for taking time to show interest in my profile. I look forward to possibly working with you in the future. To outline a little about myself, I first start with my formal education. I have a bachelor's degree from SUNY Geneseo in Childhood Education and a Master's degree from St. John Fisher in Literacy Education. I am certified to teach general education, grades first through sixth and Literacy Education, ages birth through sixth grade.
Aside from my credentials, I am sure you are wondering more about my teaching or tutoring style/experience. First and foremost, I have chosen to pursue a career in education because I have a huge desire to help students succeed. Nothing is more rewarding to me than to assist a student succeed. To detail my technique, I enjoy working with a student-centered approach to learning. To me, I like to learn with my students, not dictate above them. Along with using a student-centered teaching approach, I also take pride in my ability to differentiate or tailor lessons to the needs/interests of my students. For instance, I recently tutored a struggling 4th grader with reading. He enjoyed frogs and sharks. In response to his interest, all of my personally created or borrowed learning materials were either frog or shark related. In response, this student showed huge advances in their learning level and really enjoyed the materials I provided because he was able to show interest in his learning. I also pride myself in being creative which I use to make sure each lesson is fun and personalized. Lastly, I advocate greatly for technology. I believe it is the tool to success in our future. Students need to learn skills now to assist them with the skills that will be needed in their future work place. For this reason, I do everything in my power to bring technology into lessons. Technology is fun and engaging;at times, technology is all that is needed to engage a struggling student. Upon request, I have numerous personally made interactive learning tools. I have used all of the above techniques throughout my teaching/tutoring career. So far, I have worked in grades kindergarten through sixth (student teaching in third and sixth[History]). I have tutored a group of struggling first graders and a fourth grader (Literacy). I own a variety of updated learning materials/tools to assist in student learning. I love to learn and will continue to learn new techniques to help my future students achieve the results they desire. I work with a student's strengths to improve their struggles. I am very organized, supportive and determined to achieve student success. I hope this information assists in you getting to know me better. Please, feel free to contact me for any further information. I look forward to hearing from you.
