Hello! I would like to tell you a little about myself and my experiences. I am a mother to five children. My oldest is a junior in high school and my youngest is 2 years old. I have a middle schooler and boy and girl 7 year old twins. My children are all very different but smart in their own ways. One of my twins is ADHD and requires a little extra patience and time on my part. The challenge of raising children as a single parent is not always easy but I feel very blessed to have them.
I received my master's degree in early childhood a few years ago when I was pregnant with my two year old. Since that time I have spent most of my time at home caring for my kids but I am very anxious to get back into a teaching atmosphere working with children. I believe that this tutoring opportunity will be a great place for me to start. I typically like to start by finding out the interests of the students I am working with including hobbies and what they enjoy about school. This is a great way to provide an incentive to motivate my students to learn. I prefer to use as may hands on methods to learning as possible and believe that repetition and a consistent approach are the most effective.
My educational experiences include receiving a bachelor's degree in Early Childhood from Brenau University in 2002 and a master's in Early Childhood Education from the University of Phoenix in 2009. My master's is specific to grades Pre-Kindergarten through 5th grade.
I have taught first grade, second grade and pre-kindergarten in the past. In 2002 I completed 4 months of student teaching in a second grade classroom in Fayetteville, Georgia. I taught first grade in Coweta County, Georgia from 2002 until 2004. After spending one year at home with my twins, I went back to teaching to work with a Pre-Kindergaten class in 2005. I also was a substitute for several years in almost every grade level up to high school. I have experience working with autistic children and children with ADHD. I have complimented by parents several times for my organizational skills and techniques in working with those children that tend to be a little more challenging.
I hope I have the opportunity to meet you and your child soon!
