Guidance Counseling (MEd)
I have worked for an in-home tutoring company for the past four years and have seven years of teaching experience. I have an M.Ed. I've accepted a position to teach a Saturday Class at a charter school in Tampa. At the busiest time I have tutored up to eight students a week for either two or three hours a week depending on students and parents preference. Many of the families were appreciative of the work I did with their child as they saw their child improve his/her academic grades in either Math or Reading. I tend to work well with students using visual aids and a wide variety of creative exercises in addition to what was in the tutoring booklet for that particular student.
I have taught Algebra, Prealgebra and General Math in various school settings, and feel I could assist your child in improving his grades in the designated subjects by at least two letter grades. I am passionate about what I do and will give you and your child my maximum effort to help improve his or her academic ability.
