I am very appreciative of this opportunity for you to review my application as a potential tutor for your child. I am very experienced with educating students as I performed as a teacher in Hardeman County School System from 1994-2004. During this time I taught in the subjects of Math
and Social Studies
for 5th and 6th grade
students. State Standards were covered weekly, along with activities and projects to encourage learning. Math is a strength of mine, as there are so many ways that one can get the solution to a problem.
I was awarded during the course of my career from the State of TN for having one of the highest values added scores in the State for 5th and 6th grade Math and Social Studies. This means that through my teaching techniques and styles, I helped more students achieve their educational goals by improving their scores to the 50% and above percentile in accordance at the time with State requirements. This was done in comparison with other 5th and 6th graders across the State of TN.
is that when individuals enjoy doing something and when it is made to be enjoyable the results are more positive. I also implemented the school's first ever Jr. Beta Club which challenged students to become higher achievers. This was a great success as we had at least 20-30 students enrolled yearly which was almost 1/3 of the 5th and 6th graders. I also took time to incorporate the school's first ever Gentlemen's Club as a model program to help students understand and display positive manners, respect others, and to develop positive leadership skills.
Currently I am serving the Supervisor for Child Protective Services for the State of TN Department of Children's Services. As we serve families through our services, it is often that we see children that are in need of additional help in meeting their educational goals and they have no one to help them that have the time. I believe that education is so important, and as we all know that our children today are our future, we have to invest in them. All children are like adults, some are good at some things in life and not so good in others. But I realized a while ago that everyone is different and unique in their own way, which may require some to have additional help to reach their goals. To me that's okay, as long as they reach their goals.
I am very grateful for you taking the opportunity to read my profile and I look forward to the opportunity in assisting your child in meeting their educational needs thru tutoring sessions. I value educational highly as I instill this moral value in my children as well. I do believe that through my engagement skills and knowledge I have what it takes to assist your child reach his goals and become a higher achiever. Thanks in advance again for the opportunity to serve you.
