I have been a full-time 3rd grade teacher in Arizona for three years. Additionally, I have over 18 years worth of experience as a guest teacher in grades K-5 in the Franklin Pierce School District.
I have learned new ways of teaching math concepts and have learned much in the area of teaching reading and language arts as well. I have studied the different learning styles (auditory, visual, and kinesthetic) and have learned to adapt my strategies to fit the individual needs of my students and how they learn best.
I very much enjoy helping students who need extra assistance so they can get caught up (and maybe even surpass) their classmates. I like to play games and do activities to help students learn in a fun way. I am very creative and can even make up my own materials to help students learn.
The things I enjoy most about the opportunity to tutor are being able to work with students in smaller numbers (to give more on-on-one help) and to watch the little "light bulbs" go on as they master material with which they were previously struggling.
