A full-time teacher the past two years, I have had the opportunity to work with a variety of students. I am certified to teach pre-k through third grade. My main grade level is Kindergarten, but I have taught some first grade, and also tutored third grade.
I am particularly capable with working with ESL students, as the school I work at is primarily English as a second language. My last class consisted of over 90% ESLs. I can assist with vocabulary, speaking and writing English for beginners.
As a teacher, my goal is always to make learning exciting and engaging, but also meaningful. If a child cannot connect to the content, how can we expect them to learn it? I apply all subjects to real life situations and scenarios, getting more detailed and realistic with older students.
Lessons may be fun and silly but they will have structure and align to appropriate content standards.
Tutored third grade in preparation for the OAA. Participated in an after school program and helped students k-8 with homework and projects.
I have taught kindergarten two years, and ESL students as well with little to know writing experience. The basics begin with fine motor skills and strengths, then holding a pencil and making lines and then moving into letters and words.
As a kindergarten teacher, it is very important for students early on to learn and understand phonics. From the very beginning this is my focus, with letters then sounds then grouping and finally reading. I have had significant experience with this in regards to ESL students, so I know the struggles and strategies to be effective.
Teaching students how to read is the first step I've had experience with in the classroom for two years. It goes beyond just being able to sound out words but to comprehend and retain the information that was read as well. These are necessary and vital skills I've worked very hard to develop in my students. I have done this for two years as a Kindergarten teacher, first grade split teacher, a second grade tutor and also an OAA third grade prep tutor.
