About Aida


Bio

I am a certified teacher who has worked with Fairfax County Public Schools for 17 years, and I have tutored many of those years as well. I recently relocated to California for a new experience and to be with my family. Working with students of all ages is easy for me and my calmness and sense of humor helps get my students motivated. I believe that all children can learn, but you often need to find their unique learning styles and interests in order to help them succeed.

I am a certified teacher who has worked with Fairfax County Public Schools for 17 years, and I have tutored many of those years as well. I recently relocated to California for a new experience and to be with my family. Working with students of all ages is easy for me and my calmness and sense of humor helps get my students motivated. I believe that all children can learn, but you often need to find their unique learning styles and interests in order to help them succeed.

I have had a lot of success with tutoring students one-on-one, especially students who are about to fail a class. Preparing for tests can be a positive experience for a child, especially with my support. Teaching a student how to study is usually not taught in school.

It is important for me to be a lifelong learner, so I try to keep up with best practices. I also have taught teachers for seven years, so I know many strategies, as well as the curriculum.

In my 14 years of teaching in FCPS schools, my expertise has been in elementary education. I have had the opportunity to work with children from kindergarten to sixth grade and tutored children in middle school, high school, and college. I also was an instructional coach (expert teacher) for 7 years and taught teachers, as I was constantly learning the latest methods of teaching. I am comfortable and familiar with the curriculum for K-6 and I have a wealth of resources.

I have taught study skills for over 14 years to children, teachers, and parents, especially preparing for the state SOL tests. I have taken classes in special strategies like BES (Best Effort Strategies for studying), Kagan Strategies, and Dan Mulligan strategies to name a few. I teach my students to become their own advocates to use strategies independently as life long skills base on thier own learning styles. Since I am a life long learning, I am continuously learning new strategies and trying to keep up with the latest research.
