I have been enjoying being a tutor for Reading and Math for children ages 7-11. In tutoring reading, I try to supplement what reading material they have to read for class with slightly easier reading material if they appear to be struggling with their required reading material. I teach phonics and vocabulary and other reading remediation goals and objectives that I think they need. I sometimes assess their fluency or words per minute rate in order to help them read better. I teach math skills that they need by assessing their skills to see if they have met prerequisites for their current goals that they have set to achieve with their current teachers. I use the standards and sometimes the computerized math lesson websites to help them improve in math.
Before starting my tutoring job with the WyzAnt, I taught about 6 years in the Language Arts areas as a Speech Teacher, and I had tutored at two previous school districts. I was a Bright Futures Tutor at Marion School District in SC,and I helped with an after school program as a certified tutor of Burke County in NC. I helped students learn phonics and reading with Bright Futures Tutoring and helped students work on computer programmed individualized lesson studies with the other school district.
In Speech-Language teaching, I helped students improve their articulation skills, language skills, vocabulary, grammar, and various other types of Speech skills, such as fluency or voice use during reading aloud, answering and asking questions, or giving class presentations. I helped students learn to speak so that they could improve their communication and reading skills.
I taught in the special education setting as a Speech-Language Teacher and taught in the regular classroom as a first grade teacher and had a brief experience working as a fourth grade teacher. I taught Speech-Language skills to students of all ages, preK through 12th grade. My greatest strength is that I am certified in teaching SPEECH, ELEMENTARY EDUCATION, and EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION and have experiences with teaching in these areas.
