Hello and welcome!
My name is Sarika P. I graduated with my B.A. in Education in 2012 at Arcadia University. I just completed my Masters in Elementary/Special Education and student teaching experience at an urban charter school. Fall of 2015 I will be a permanent teacher at the school I student taught at.
As well as elementary, I have experience with early childhood as well. Right out of undergraduate I was a preschool
lead teacher in the city. I also organized an after school program within my school to help tutor students from grades k-5.
Though I am still fairly new to WyzAnt, I have been tutoring for about 7 years now. I believe that all students have different learning styles. It is my job to understand and apply that learning style with the student. Whether it is hands on, visual, or verbal it is my job to teach your child/you to your highest potential! My experience with teaching has taught me to modify my lessons so it differentiates to many individual students.
Being an elementary teacher I have a lot of experience in all subjects. The two subjects I love teaching are reading
. As a teacher I work with a lot of small groups and individuals to ensure the best they are getting the necessary attention and help they need. I have a lot of experience with Guided Reading - with that my methods would be to incorporate a lot of building comprehension strategies. When students are able to master comprehension strategies such as sequencing, order, cause and effect, retelling etc. They are able to become readers who love to read. In order to get students reading students need to know how to read. As a teacher, I have taught many ways to teach children how to read and write. Fundation lesson is a curriculum that is used in our school which has been really successful. My lesson would focus on carefully sequenced skills that include decoding, vocabulary
, fluency, spelling
and phonemic awareness. These lessons are very scripted so students get high quality learning.
If you would like to discuss further or have any questions please do!
Thank you for your interest and I hope to hear from you soon!
