Hello, and thank you for taking the time to view my profile. I am a concerned and committed educator who feels a strong need to help students to do the very best they can. I have worked (and had success) in many different settings with students of all ages with a focus on middle school pupils in the area of K-8 math
. My experience ranges from teaching math in public, private, and alternative schools to tutoring at summer school and giving one-on-one instruction.
It is my belief that every child wants to learn and excel
scholastically. I think that all children can do well academically with the proper assistance and encouragement along the way. I am a tutor that certainly understands the struggles many students face today, but I never use those challenges as an excuse to quit. Education for a child can be fun and rewarding as they grow by learning - and that, for me, is a key point that will go beyond these tutoring sessions. It is for this reason that I have always attempted to provide my students with not just the subject matter required, but also the desire for continuous learning so that their success is prolonged in the classroom and in life.
With that being said, my method of tutoring includes gathering information from the student in the specified subject area to see exactly where it would be most beneficial to begin, as well as getting to know the student to establish common ground and to understand what motivates them to learn. Finally, my tutoring style involves frequent updates and progress reports that details the student's improvement over time.
I have over 10 years of experience in teaching and counseling students in a school setting. I have a Master's degree in Business
Administration with a focus in management. And my FBI as well as PA state criminal and child abuse clearances are clean and up to date. Thank you again for your time, and I look forward to working with you!
