One of the most enjoyable aspects of teaching is working with students one-on-one. Helping a student find ways of learning that are particularly suited to his/her strengths is truly rewarding for both the teacher and the student.
I have had great success with students in the past as evidenced by their own enjoyment of our time together and their increased access to subject content and future learning. Many parents have asked me to work with their students outside of school. As a certified teacher I currently work with high school children in the context of our science
classes, but I always have one or two students who I work with outside of class who need extra help, or want a deeper knowledge and understanding of the content.
For several years while I lived in Madison I tutored middle and high school students both in the public school and privately. Many of these students had learning disabilities or were learning English
as their second language
My tutoring methods focus first on getting to know a little bit about each student: what s/he enjoys most, how s/he learns best, what his/her learning strengths and weaknesses are, and what the goals are for our study together. Then I will often spend time outside of our sessions together brushing up on the topics we will cover. Sometimes I provide supplemental information as study guides. We usually work according to school schedules, on a yearly or semester basis. I am willing to help provide summer tutoring programs as well.
I find tutoring particularly worthwhile because the tutor and the student share the same goal: to help deepen the student's understanding of the subject matter and of his/her particular learning style. When a young person deepens in self-knowledge, it is a gratifying experience for a teacher as well as the student.
