**** F.Y.I. I will be on college break and not in the area from December 7th to January 21st.****
I am currently a college student working toward my bachelor of science in education. The certification I am working toward is elementary/middle level education with an emphasis in mathematics and history. I am also working toward my add-on certification in TESOL. Don't let my lack of a certification deter you! I have more than enough experience within the classroom! During the school year I am employed by Belmont Hills elementary school as a tutor and aide working with their students. I also have experience tutoring privately.
Because of my education, I am up to date and familiar with the latest expectations and methods. I use encouraging tactics that demand excellence through positive reinforcement. I also tailor my tutoring style to reflect the individual student's learning style as defined by Gardener's theory of multiple intelligences. Since most students receive quiet instruction in school, I believe learning should be hands-on and interactive.
As a specialist in mathematics, social studies, and English, I am able to tutor these subjects in high school as well! I have a large supply of games and activities that I use with elementary and middle school students to make learning fun while teaching them the subject material.
