Through my teaching experiences, I have developed effective communication methods for interacting with students and parents, who are critically important in the academic setting of a child. As a student-teacher at Edlin School for the Gifted in Reston, VA, I gained experience working one-on-one with students as I was also a private writing
tutor. During my employment as an instructor at Horton's Kids Inc., a small non-profit organization
located in Anacostia, MD, I was responsible for teaching my students - ranging from ages five to eight - reading
literacy through lesson plans I designed and implemented personally. I focused heavily on enhancing the motivation of each child through combining group work and individualized attention; I also integrated a broad array of academic subjects, including history
, and science
, into lesson plans to diversify and promote nuanced interactions with literacy learning material.
As the Fifth Grade
Homeroom Teacher at Pinnacle Academy in Oakton, VA, I was responsible for ensuring the personal success of my students while teaching them the core subjects of Language
Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies
. I also have experience being an SAT preparation
instructor and have learned the importance of creating and implementing specialized activities and individualized lesson plans to engage my students academically. The flexibility with which I approach my employment allows me to reassess a situation and develop an appropriate solution in the event of an unforeseen problem. I am certain that my motivation and creativity will be valuable in guiding your child to accomplishing their particular academic or personal goals.
