I am a professional tutor and teacher with many years of experience across a wide variety of subjects. My High Honors Bachelor's degree is in Organizational Development and Management. My greatest asset in educating is using creative and effective methods. I enjoy a challenge and am dedicated to excellence! Understanding a student's learning style and applying this to tutoring methodologies. For instance, a visual or kinesthetic learner may require information to be presented and reviewed in unique ways such as Lego blocks for multiplication. Pronunciation and conversation are so important in ESL/ESOL education. I like to find new and exciting ways to practice and learn through various methods such as singing and games. I was a homeschool student myself and am familiar with some of the unique challenges this form of education may include. I pride myself on making learning fun, while also recognizing the value of perseverance as a pathway to success! Learning through play, or creative and different ways than may be found in the classroom. I like to build confidence and find unique ways to ensure understanding of all required materials, in the most effective manner possible. I look forward to learning your specific educational needs and forging, with you, the pathway to success! We've got this!

Elementary Education

Elementary (K-6th),

Elementary (K-6th)

While still a teenager myself, I was charged with teaching a 'kids' class in martial arts; with an age range of 12-15. I have previously been employed and completed several modules in child development, although I did not complete the certification. The modules were completed in 2000-2001, while employed as a pre-k assistant instructor. I realize this is outside of the requested age grouping for K-6th....however, I worked with children in the 4 year old group preparing for Kindergarten. Also, while enrolled at St.Petersburg College, my focus was Elementary Education. I have since transferred to Eckerd College where I will complete my Bachelor's Degree in Organizational Studies (inclusive of educational organizations and institutions). Lastly, I am the proud Aunt of a seven year old girl, with whom I have enjoyed much time educating in a variety of areas...this summer we are working on 'cursive' writing in preparation for the coming school year.
Elementary Math,

Elementary Math

I have a high honors BA degree in Organizational studies, which includes inter-organizational dynamics and behavior. I believe in every child (and every persons) ability to grow and learn! In my experience, learning through play makes learning a more worthwhile activity. For example, using Legos for counting and multiplication. I take the time to learn for myself where the child's skills and aptitudes are, and develop personalized goals and lesson plans. The kids gain confidence while learning, and end up wanting to learn more on their own...we have fun!
Phonics,

Phonics

When I was young, I learned both to read and play music (the Suzuki method) through phonetics. I then scored in the 90th percentile and above through out the rest of my elementary and secondary schooling for reading and I believe that is largely due to the understanding of phonetics. It is vital to distinguishing sounds and understanding the ways in which letters work together when we speak and spell.
