I am a recently graduated college student who studied Early Childhood/Elementary Education. I have been tutoring since my Junior year in high school. I am very fun, energetic, and patient and enjoy learning almost as much as I enjoy making learning fun and understandable. As a tutor, I help students with any homework problems they might be having, preparing for tests, developing good study skills, and working on time management.
I am qualified to tutor Elementary students from K-6th because was an Education major in college. During college, I taught English in a 6th grade classroom and finished my teaching experience in a 3rd grade classroom teaching a variety of different subjects. I have also tutored my cousins and other students in these grades over the years.
During college, I took a course that specialized in reading and phonics. We were taught how to properly pronounce words with diphthongs and phonemes. A book on phonics was also required by each student to fill out that gives an overview of phonics and teaches phonemic awareness in a self-paced manner. I have used this book with my own sisters to help them sound out and pronounce words properly.
In my years of tutoring and being a student, I have developed a variety of good study skills that I have passed on to others. For many, acquiring good study skills is hard, but I believe it takes time and focus. Many of the methods I have tried and others have found to work for them are note cards, studying a little each night, rote memorization, highlighting key information, etc. I am confident in my knowledge of these various techniques that I can help any student acquire excellent study methods to succeed in school.
