Teaching for young and old should invite the learner and provide meaningful practice. My experience as an elementary and middle school teacher over 26 years in Florida gives me insight into differing learning styles and stumbling blocks for the learner. After diagnosis, the learning situation should be structured to help the learner know they can succeed in the task at hand. Targeted instruction and practice with feedback assist the learner in attaining the skills needed. I especially enjoy...

Teaching for young and old should invite the learner and provide meaningful practice. My experience as an elementary and middle school teacher over 26 years in Florida gives me insight into differing learning styles and stumbling blocks for the learner. After diagnosis, the learning situation should be structured to help the learner know they can succeed in the task at hand. Targeted instruction and practice with feedback assist the learner in attaining the skills needed. I especially enjoy hands-on lessons in math or reading. I look forward to working with you to improve your skills.

Public Speaking

Public Speaking

I took a public speaking course at the college level. Through my teaching and work on committees in the community and through church I have become comfortable speaking in front of groups of people. This particular skill improves through experience. So writing and giving speeches is the tried and true method. I feel that getting students comfortable with talking in informal situations is crucial for growth in this skill. Many people need to plan an argument or conversation. They need guidance and experience. These types of activities gradually lead to the ease with spoken language that helps our students become skilled public speakers.

Study Skills

Study Skills is a unique category, encompassing many differing avenues of learning style for the student. As a teacher of all ages, I would need to find out what kind of problems the student is encountering to plan which type of study skills would be most effective for that learner. My experience with many elementary, middle and high schoolers helps me evaluate the situation and make suggestions about which techniques would provide the most potential benefits for the student. Techniques often used include visual cues (like notecards), diagrams and other visual imagery, listening and reading comprehension, summarizing, test preparation, time management to name a few.

ADHD

I am a retired elementary school teacher with over 20 years of assisting ADD students in the classroom. I currently volunteer in a special needs pre-K classroom. Many students are diagnosed ADD or ADHD in this setting. We make many accommodations to help those students tune in to the classroom experience. The accommodations include pacing, visual cues, alternative activities, focus techniques, and creative activities all geared to help the ADD student absorb the learning task.
