I'm a homeschooling mother of four, which gives me lots of experience in teaching younger children. Not only have I taught my own children, but I've taught classes for other homeschoolers, Girl Scouts, and other organizations. When I worked as a nanny I helped the kids I cared for with their homework on a nightly basis, one of them being quite troubled in basic reading skills. While I don't have a degree, I've definitely got hands-on experience!
Whether it's homework help or helping kids with a challenging subject, I love being a part of helping a child learn. This can include traditional forms of learning like books and worksheets, but this can also include more fun and creative ways to get the information across, games, experiments, and other hands-on activities. Not every child learns the same way so I try to form a plan based on each individuals' needs.
