Success in school builds confidence and self-esteem. I work through positive re-enforcement, with no negative feedback. I want each student to feel valuable and capable of learning. Whether your child wants to be a nurse, fireman, doctor, dog trainer, truck driver, I want to show how learning is important to his or her future. I have brought students from failing to honor role, and I would be glad to help your child.
My Bachelor's degree was earned at Florida International University, one of the most competitive universities in Florida. I graduated in 2006, with honors from multiple academic organizations and Magna Cum Laude standing.
Reading and math are essential skills! I use many hands-on learning pieces and I customize curriculum for each student. It will look different from what he/she has seen all day at school so it is fresh and interesting. I use the Common Core Standards as my guide to bring your child to grade level performance. One-on-one learning is very effective and gives the student the opportunity and freedom to ask questions he/she might not feel comfortable asking in the classroom in front of other students. If requested, I will also work with more than one child at a time on the same subject if they are on similar levels.
Since 2007, I have been paid to tutor math and reading intervention, K-8, by the State of Ohio. In 2012, I went private and independent with my students so I could stay with students as long as they needed help, allowing me to customize my plans and bring each student to higher levels. I am also qualified by my education to teach middle school and high school English, and I am a long-term substitute teacher in those upper grades. Both of these positions require state and federal background checks and mine are current and available for your review.
ASVAB and IELTS preparation - I love helping adults accomplish goals that open the doors to their future. I will present the essential skills for these exams in a way that you can learn quickly and achieve your highest score.
SAT and ACT preparation are important to students who intend to apply to colleges. I will help with the language arts skills that they will encounter on those tests, including reading comprehension, selecting proper sentences, vocabulary/definitions, and how to quickly brainstorm, outline and write an essay on a random subject during a timed test.
Additionally, I help students with short term projects in English, literature, and science. I help them with brainstorming for their topic, outlining their subject, working on their oral and visual presentations, and proof reading their papers for submission.
At the college level, I help students with papers for almost any subject. I tutor them in writing for essays and term papers, help them balance their argument paragraphs, check sentence structure and grammar, enhance their vocabulary, proofread and prepare the papers for submission.
