About Aneesha

With over 12 years classroom teaching experience (grades 1/2, 4/5, creative writing, art and British Literature for grades 9-12), I have a vast array of teaching skills to offer.

I believe that each child learns differently and my students always participated in student-parent-teacher conferences with personal assessments and goals. With active engagement in the process from beginning to end, students participate in the responsibility for their learning. I have offered a variety of teaching methods to target the particular learning style of the students. Students engaged in hands-on activities, as well as written practice, including cross curriculum learning, to demonstrate mastery of skills. These were translated into tests with a variety of testing assessments to ensure mastery on state achievement tests and in order to meet the state curriculum standards.

While my certification is for grades 4-9, I have taught a variety of people with various challenges from ages 4-100. Because of this wide range of teaching opportunities, I offer a high standard with compassion and patience and a dedication for commitment to the person's success in education.

My philosophy is that learning is fun and full of discovery, exploration and celebration. It is also an avenue to pursue excellence in personal achievement. Excellence in achievement has been important in my own education and in my personal life. I have been fortunate to learn from people who are world class leaders in their field of interest: NC Teacher Academy; NC Shakespeare Festival; Toshio Ohi, 11th generation potter from Japan; Albertja Koopman, NYC designer, Hoby Ford, student of Jim Henson; Artist, James Turrell and NHK TV, Japan; Marin Alsop, conductor. I write for a blog as well as the labyrinth society and the British Tapestry Group, and continue to have my tapestry weaving published. Because my own standards of excellence are maintained, I am able to offer students a vision for their own excellence and potential achievements.

Approved subjects

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.

Reading

With over 12 years classroom teaching experience (grades 1/2, 4/5, creative writing, art and British Literature for grades 9-12), I have a vast array of teaching skills to offer. I believe that each child learns differently. My students participate in effective accountability for their learning with personal assessments and goals. With active engagement in the process from beginning to end, students are able to participate in taking responsibility for their learning. Employing a variety of teaching methods to target the particular learning style of each person, I am dedicated to finding solutions to address the needs of the student. Learners engage in hands-on activities, as well as written practice, including cross curriculum learning, to demonstrate mastery of skills. Students also translate this competence into tests with a variety of testing assessments to ensure mastery on state achievement tests and in order to meet the state curriculum standards.

Special Needs

With over 12 years' classroom teaching, I have had numerous children in my classes with special needs and Aspergers. I have had good success in integrating students because of a natural patience, ability to see far reaching potential and teaching to the individual. I teach to the child's individual learning style.
One student in particular, could sit 20-40 seconds at a time when I had him in the 2nd grade. I changed grade levels and had him again in 4th and 5th. By the end of 5th grade, his Asperger's was barely noticeable and he was one of my top students, with a genuine love of theater; he was my star performer in Shakespeare's Midsummer's Night Dream.
In addition, I had 2 years teaching high school students with special needs in MA. For student's with profound challenges, we focused on art and music when I came to the classroom. For the other students we focused on writing, art, life skills, and workshop skills. I have also taught weaving at Spindleworks in Maine and Shakespeare's Hamlet at Every Child Counts School in Abaco Bahamas.

Study Skills

With over 12 years of classroom experience and 3 years of serving as an educational consultant for Sylvan learning centers, I have much to offer students in the area of study skills. Many students are naturally intelligent but have a challenge demonstrating abilities because of lack of study skills. Organizing notebooks, color-coding, time management can be part of the skills for better study habits, as well as learning according to one's particular learning style. Studies show that when a student is taught something for the first time, it needs to be learned in his/her primary modality of learning. When practicing, the secondary modalities should be used to help integrate the learning.
Self-esteem and confidence can also impact a student's ability to organize. Having taught a variety of students of various ages, I can offer patience and understanding and motivation to shine to the fullest educational potential.
