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 was employed by Belmont Hills elementary school as a tutor and aide working with their students. Recently, I have been able to leave my job at Belmont and solely tutor students through WyzAnt.
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.
The results are not only displayed in grades and test scores, but also in the student's outlook on education. In relating the material to the world around them, the students gain a greater understanding and interest. My positive and encouraging methods help the students to take pride in themselves and their work.
My sincere belief is that every student has the ability to improve and meet their full potential. I want every one of my students to be the best that they can be.
