Hi. I have 9 years of educational teaching and tutoring as a Reading and Math Interventions type of setting for middle school students. I began my career as a substitute teacher during my first year for the elementary and middle school here in my hometown.
My second year I was offered to work as a Long Term Substitute Teacher for the middle school as a 7th grade Reading teacher to which I successfully completed that whole year and I enjoyed it. I learned how to create lesson plans and teach my students successfully in the reading area. During this year I also did after school reading interventions (tutorials).
My 3rd year I was offered to take another Long Term Substitute teaching position until the new teacher arrived for 1 semester in 8th grade Science.
The 2nd semester of that school year I finished the year as a long term substitute for the art class. I continued to do after school reading interventions this year a well.
My 4th year I took a permament position with the school district and worked for the middle school as a full time Reading Interventionist and I was able to assist 6,7,8th grade students throughout the day solely in reading. I also did afterschool tutorials this year as well. I did this for the remaining 3 years. I loved every moment of teaching my students in group settings. Reading is my passion as I over came childhood obstacles of my past when I struggled in school through reading. I was able to teach students tasks of how to over cone the struggles of reading and comprehension.
My next 2 years was spent in working as a Paraprofessional in the High School level with disabled students. I currently work with the High School and I really enjoy this position I am in now. I have a deeper understanding and better knowledge of assisting students of special needs as I help them through all their lessons throughout the whole day. I have great passion and full understanding of what out takes to assist in every way I can with Reading, comprehension, some math, writing, and social skills. I make myself available to all students who need help in school.
Reading comprehension, writing, spelling, vocabulary, fluency,
I have patience in teaching. I encourage ways to make out easier for students to read and comprehend what they read.
I start of by introducing the lesson. I will introduce 4 to6 words based on the child's needs. I model the words through it's sound, spelling, fluency, meanings, use of words, sentence use, the structure of each word. Then we practice. Each day or every other day depends on the student I will introduce add 1 or 2 new words to the list, again depending on the student. Ending the week with a quiz by first spelling/writing the words I've taught, sounding the words, breaking the words down, brief meaning of each word by describing or examples, writing each word in a sentence. Each weekly quiz will be closely monitored for re teach if needed. Though all quizzes will be documented and input into a file for student/parent files. Hi.

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
