Let me begin by introducing myself: I am Lily K., I am 28 years old and was born and raised in Texas! I have attended Texas State University in San Marcos, TX where I took courses in Social Work, Public Relations, and General Education and Sul Ross State University where I obtained a Bachelor of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies. I am currently employed by SFDRCISD as an 8th grade English Teacher and previously worked as an Instructional Aide where I worked with many different groups of children ranging from Special Education to English as a Second Language. I have worked in a Math, English, and Special Ed settings.
I have tutored many times before, both in my job and school. I like to mostly work one on one by hand and manipulatives, but do like to incorporate technology when appropriate. I don't really believe in rote learning--unless it is Math--and feel that children learn better when they are not just memorizing but comprehending what they are being taught. I like to teach using every day examples and situations to which children can relate.
I mostly work with elementary through middle school aged children. I do not work with students higher than the 8th grade only because I feel that I can give the most to children of a younger age and feel that I would be doing a disservice if I were to try to tutor a high school student in, let's say: Calculus--which I know nothing about! My strengths are in English (grammar, spelling, punctuation, syntax, etc.) and Math.
If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to ask away! I look forward to working with you!
