Bio

My experience has taken place in classroom settings and tutoring centers for all grades from Pre-k through 8th. My duties have included working with students who have English as a second language; students who are challenged by degrees of Autism, ADD, ADHD, and Cerebral palsy; students who are adopted from foreign countries during their Elementary School years; and students with physical challenges.

My experience has taken place in classroom settings and tutoring centers for all grades from Pre-k through 8th. My duties have included working with students who have English as a second language; students who are challenged by degrees of Autism, ADD, ADHD, and Cerebral palsy; students who are adopted from foreign countries during their Elementary School years; and students with physical challenges.

Assessment is a very important component of my teaching method along with contemplating how I need to change to meet the needs of my students. When my students have reached an "Aha" moment during the teaching process, I feel I have received the greatest possible reward.Technology, literature, art, science, and music can also be found in my approaches to enhance my tutoring skills. Yearly, I seek professional training to keep abreast of trends, research, and creative methods in education. Teaching is my vocation.

Grammar is an integral part of the language program we have at our school beginning in Pre-K. Grammar is taught daily and I have participated as a teacher for the past 10 years in this area for grades Pre-K to 2nd. During my college level courses, most of our work was presented in either oral form or written form and grammar was closely monitored.

Learning is fun!

Raeya is becoming more confident in Math thanks to Mrs. Muse. They sing song songs, play games, do worksheets - all of which are fun and keeps my daughter wanting to learn more. Mrs. Muse has been such an asset to Rae's education.
