I am an education major, getting my Associates in Education in the spring 2012 for childhood education. I will be continuing onto SUNY Brockport to receive my Bachelors in Childhood Inclusive Education.
I have tutored students down at the Carlson YMCA for a total of 20hours and have helped many struggling students in all areas such as math, science, English, and social studies. I have helped kids with grammar, phonics and teaching students how to write cursive.
I have also spent 60hours in a 3rd grade classroom as a student observer, and helped teach math lessons, writer's workshop, science and social studies.
I believe that every student can succeed in school and that they can reach their fullest potential. My goal is to reach all students at any level and needs that they have.
My tutoring approach is to go over the material given to them for homework and revisit every problem they do not understand. Then we take other examples and work on those, if they get the question right I put the paper away in my folder and they come back to me the next time and review it again. I will also make up flash cards to help with math equations, and words. With reading I assess their level and work on sounding out words and then reading, the kids will read a couple pages then I will read and we switch on and off. This helps the student to read along and recognize words. I am also good in Spanish, I can teach beginners Spanish if needed.
