My personal goal is to make learning fun and engaging for each student. I do this by developing lessons that incorporate the student's interests and strengths. It is important that the learning take place at an appropriate level and pace which is unique to each student. I am an experienced ESOL teacher, so I understand how to present information in a variety of ways. As a teacher I understand that it is difficult to structure lessons that meet every child's needs at all times. That is why I feel that as a tutor it is vital to understand the needs of my students so our time spent together can be enjoyable and beneficial. My experience is mainly working with elementary level students in grades 1-5. I do, however, speak Spanish and would be comfortable in tutoring students taking Spanish through a high school level.
I consider myself a person who is flexible and willing to work out a schedule that is best for both of us. I enjoy leading students through the learning process and seeing them succeed. I hope to foster an understanding of the importance of doing well in school so they can succeed in life.
