Children learn differently. I understand that and often the regular classroom can't always meet the needs of every student like it perhaps should. That's why I offer my services. I have been in the regular classroom and can sympathize with parents who feel that their student could use additional assistance either to improve or even get ahead. The adoption of the Common Core State Standards is raising the bar of academic performance for our students. I have received training in these standards as well as the Best Practices in Mathematics. Let me help your student become the very best he or she can be. I can promise that some of my methods may not be orthodox as I feel that learning should be fun as well as engaging. We will probably utilize technological as well as online resources oftentimes. Furthermore, I will always have a smile on my face. Your child will always know that he or she is the focus of my attention and I am there to help them.
I am a veteran educator of eleven years - the bulk of which I spent as a sixth grade math teacher. I have also taught grades four and seven. For the past two years I ran school computer labs where I was responsible for for providing appropriate academic practice of relevant an required skills for grades K-5. As result I have a good grasp of what students should be learning at all levels kindergarten through middle school.
I view my assistance as two fold. First, I want to support the work students are doing in the classroom by providing feedback and additional help with what is being learned. Secondly, I will endeavor to push students beyond what is presented in class to perhaps "get ahead" to facilitate deeper understanding of content area skills and concepts.
