Seminole Community College (NURSING)
I am a nurse by profession but have been teaching at Florida Career College the Patient Care Technician program. Many students have difficulty with the English language so getting them to give feedback in English as well as having assignments written in English has helped them prepare for the real world upon graduation. I had been a foster parent for 7 years and have dealt with foster children who have had difficulty reading and writing. To see the success of these children has been an experience that I will never forget as many come from broken homes and education is not at the top of list of priorities in their lives. I am kind, caring, compassionate and would love nothing better than to see the next generation of children become successful at reading. With reading comes knowledge which leads to a positive self esteem. If you have positive self esteem it leads to power and then money .
I am patient, encourage through positive reinforcement and like you to have fun while you learn. When you see your progress you will be so excited... and so will your parents and friends! We can work on whatever work at school you need help with! I am a nurse by profession but have been teaching at Florida Career College the Patient Care Technician program.

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.
Handwriting is very important as it is how we communicate with each other. I tutor students at Florida Career College who come from diverse backgrounds and must be able to read and write in order for them to complete their program of study. Using various teaching skills to accommodate each student reassures that student they are succeeding as they see their progress. Not everyone learns the same way so you must learn what works best for that student.
Reading aloud improves comprehension as people read more slowly when reading aloud, which increases processing time of what they are reading. Discussing the book or subject matter after reading reinforces the material in the text. Questions about plot draws attention to significant pieces of the text and helps the reader remember what happened in the story.
For small children or people just learning to read, making connections between the book and themselves helps to improve comprehension. For example, after reading a book about a birthday party, ask the reader to recall a party they attended, and explain what similarities or differences the real party had when compared to the party in the book.
Rereading helps readers catch information they missed the first time they read a piece of text. Children who are learning to read can improve their reading comprehension by rereading familiar books. Covering material that is familiar to the reader increases the speed and fluency of their reading, which increases reading comprehension.
