Clovis Community College (Liberal Studies)
When I was in high school I did the ROP program for careers in education. I stayed in the program for both my junior year and my senior year. The program let us pick a elementary class to be in and we got to be teachers' aids. My first teacher I was with told some of the students' parents that I could tutor their child and that is how I started tutoring. Both my teachers I was an aid for recommended me to the parents. My first year I had two girls who were low in math and telling time.
I did math problems with them and would make it into a game so they would have fun learning. For telling time I had them make a clock themselves and use that instead of the plastic ones in the class. My second year I tutored two boys, both low in reading and spelling. My one accomplishment I am really proud of is having one of my students, that did not know any English, be the highest in reading in the classroom and getting 100% on all his spelling test.
Since than I started going to college to become a elementary school teacher and I started working for Clovis campus club. My favorite thing I love about teaching is the reward of seeing my students grow and learn so much. I also love doing creative actives that make learning more fun. I have taught shapes by drawing a pirate with the class step by step. In the two years I have worked in the classroom, I noticed a lot of students love doing actives that involve creativity.
I find fun and creative ways to make grammar, reading, and vocabulary fun. I make games for the students to play and I reward them. I have fun teaching it and the students love playing the games.
During my years of tutoring, I have taught a boy who did not know any English into the highest reader and speller in his class. I can easily adapted to the students learning style by the time the first session is over. My other boy I tutored was not good at his handwriting. By the end of the school year he was writing perfectly.
I am a fun tutor and only give positive feedback. I have many fun games for reading, grammar, spelling, and learning your vocabulary words!

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.
I tutored reading for the past 2 years and all my students have learned more. They always loved tutoring with me and looked forward to learning.
