I specialize in elementary tutoring. I pride myself on being able to effectively communicate with the students in a way that they understand and enjoy. I also have one on one and group tutoring experience. I am also able to tutor via web cam for those who do not wish to travel. I enjoy working with the younger students as I believe the key to education is in the foundation.Although I have no formal degrees or certifications, I have spent countless hours as an unofficial TA at Sudie Williams Elementary and I also have children myself which aids me in understanding the needs of children as far as their attention span and things of this nature.
My approach to tutoring is to first analyze the learning styles and abilities of my students. In doing this we learn how to approach every child's needs accordingly. After this evaluation, I discuss with the student what problems they're having, how we can work together to make it better, and what you can do on your own to continue with the progress we have started.
Reading and English are my areas of expertise. I have what I call a "You First" approach, that simply being the student tells me the problem or what they do understand and we can go from there, as opposed to me sitting and trying to teach them something over that they already understand. That way our time is used best.
