I enjoy tutoring math mostly, as I plan to become a math instructor. I believe a big key to success in math is recognizing and understanding the terminology, as well as finding a way for students to comprehend and even embrace the processes they are attempting to follow. I know that everyone hears how math is the basis for most of what we see and hear, but mathematics class is about seeing the process written down on paper, which seems to be the intimidating part.
I have four years tutoring experience, community college and younger students, and have a level II college reading and learning association certification.
I am now a recent college graduate, obtaining not only a Bachelor's of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies degree, but I also obtained my 4-8 teaching certification through the state of Texas!! My certification came with a requirement of student teaching completion, to which was a more than enlightening 16 weeks!! As I have already been offered and accepted a position as a 7th grade math teacher for the up and coming 2014-2015 school year, my plans for the summer are to focus more on aiding and assisting others through tutoring. I hope to step down as a Supervisor (I was promoted two years ago!) with Starbucks so that I can focus on not only bettering a student's comprehension, but bettering myself and growing with each student I tutor while spending more time with my own family as well.
Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my profile, and I look forward to helping you reach you or your child's educational goals!!
