I have a Master's in Human Resource Development and Training. I have a BA in Business Administration. I have tutored students who were having difficulty with reading comprehension skills. I have worked as a paraprofessional with middle schoolers which included basic skills needed for elementary students. Using techniques such as reading out loud and using a dictionary to find words they do not understand.
I believe that every child can learn. Each child is an individual and learns at different paces. I have experience in the areas of English, reading and math. I have students that were failing as a result of my tutoring the failing grade became a high "B's" in some cases "A's". My goal is to make sure the student gets understanding of the subject they are having difficulty in.
