Over the last eight years I have directly witnessed the many benefits students receive from one on one tutoring. As a certified teacher with a Master's degree in elementary education, I have developed techniques that prepare students for the FSA and other standardized tests. Ultimately, tutoring improves the student's self-confidence and grades.

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.
As a Florida certified teacher (grades K-6) with an active license that doesn't expire until 2016 and over five years of full time teaching experience I can effectively teach elementary students in all facets of elementary education. I have improved my teaching skills through many workshops that include Melissa Forney's writing workshop, Mary Lewis' writing workshop, Advanced Reading Practices, and numerous ESOL endorsement courses(just to name a few)that help me address my students' learning styles. In addition, to my teaching experience I have also tutored students one on one for the last four years.
As a Florida certified teacher (grades K-6) I have developed many lessons that help students build effective study skills. Each student learns differently and all learning styles must be addressed. For example, some students learn audibly and remember a fact by hearing it and some students learn visually by seeing the fact written down. A good example of a lesson that I use for vocabulary is a five tiered way of learning. The lesson starts with having the student say the word, next he or she writes the word, after that the student writes the definition of the word, then he or she draws a picture of the word's meaning, and finally the student acts out the meaning of the word through role playing. Lessons like this really address all learning styles and I apply this method to most subjects. Another study tool I teach are thinking maps. Thinking maps are student created graphic organizers that help the student break down text into logical parts, like cause and effect, compare and contrast, classifying information, and multiple word meanings. Thinking maps develop critical thinking skills in students and increase reading comprehension throughout all subjects.
Due to outstanding writing training from Mary Lewis and Melissa Forney coupled with excellent writing test scores, I presented my best writing practices to my fellow teachers. My presentation included: organizational thinking maps, expository formats, narrative formats, sizzling vocabulary, poetry, and elaboration through the use of mini moments. Ultimately, each teacher received a well organized packet of writing lessons that they can use with their students to fine tune their writing skills.
