Successful English, History, Spanish Tutor
Teaching any student requires sensitivity to his/her developmental learning level. Students generally want to acquire experience and competence as human beings. Whether teaching ACT/SAT Prep, English, History or Spanish, the tutor must impart a sense of belief in the student's ability to learn and grow academically and as a person.

Teaching any student requires sensitivity to his/her developmental learning level. Students generally want to acquire experience and competence as human beings. Whether teaching ACT/SAT Prep, English, History or Spanish, the tutor must impart a sense of belief in the student's ability to learn and grow academically and as a person. Having taught students with specific learning disabilities for a number of years, I have learned that one's level of self-esteem is even more important than one's level of academic readiness. I have found that when students believe they can learn and are taught using a program such as the Wilson Reading System, they can rapidly acquire and maintain reading skills pretty quickly.
Every learner possesses a unique combination of learning preferences or styles that the tutor must be cognizant of. As a teacher, I believe that people learn best using a variety of media and experiences to make the subject come alive. The subject matter must be intellectually accessible, interesting and relevant to one's life. While students must master content, it is clear that different students learn in different ways and at different rates. Some learn better while listening while others who are visual learners get more out of reading and visually processing relevant information. Other students are more kinesthetic in their style; they enjoy constructing or creating products that motivate them to understand the material more effectively. I think that a good teacher utilizes a variety of activities and experiences to help the learners best understand and process what they are learning. In terms of credentials, I hold a Certificate of Advanced Study in Special Education and I have been trained in the Wilson Reading System which is effective for teaching older students with specific Learning Disabilities to improve their reading levels and skills.
