Experienced, Certified Secondary (grades 6-12) English Educator to help students improve their reading and writing skills. As a former Education Specialist at the regional level, I have experience training teachers in understanding the guidelines and strategies for helping students be successful on the STAAR (State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness). With 10 years of experience teaching students and teachers, I feel confident I can help students realize their own potential and success in English/English Language Arts.
I use the following methods when tutoring one-on-one or small group:
-Socratic Questioning- A pedagogical technique in which a teacher does not give information directly but instead asks a series of questions, with the result that the student comes either to the desired knowledge by answering the questions or to a deeper awareness of the limits of knowledge.
-Strategic Tutoring-Tutors teach learning strategies while helping students complete their content assignments.The goal of strategic tutoring is to empower adolescents to complete similar tasks independently in the future.
