About Henrietta

I have worked as a third grade paraprofessional for 4 years and this is where my passion grew in helping students be their best. I am currently a substitute teacher for the Dekalb county school system and has been doing this for the past 14 years. I enjoy working with students and bringing out the potential that they already have. It is very important that children love learning and are eager to excel and do their very best to succeed.

I have tutored students in a private school setting during my internship and volunteered afterwards. I believe it is my responsibility to work with students until they have the confidence needed in order to be successful, and are able to complete an assignment on their own. I have worked with students that are not at their regular reading level, but they are able to understand the lessons, all it takes is patience and re-emphasizing their own potential.

When using vocabulary words I help students to understand what the word is and what it means. I give examples in a sentence and explain the context in which the word is used. This can also help when synonyms and antonyms are used in the same way to get a better understanding of the words.

I have worked with students in common core areas in the classrooms. Students are introduced to these standards on a daily basis. Since I'm working with students in early grades, this gives me the insight of what they are exposed too. Students will be encouraged to ask questions more freely and often as necessary in order to improve their grades. I understand the importance of good study skills and positive feedback. This will help me to determine their strengths and weaknesses so I can implement strategies for improvement.

I have an associate degree in early childhood education, as well as a Bachelor's degree, I have received extensive training in the classroom with students, in a group setting as well as individual sessions. I believe time management and good note taking is important, along with good study habits. I have worked with a program called S.T.E.P Academics, Inc ("Tutor to the Target" Support Program. I worked with students in a group as well as individually. I provided instructional assistance and collaborated with the classroom teacher.

I am available when there is a problem that needs my help and I can assist the student in a timely manner, especially if they have a quiz or test at the end of the week. Please give me ample time to work with/or meet with you before any deadlines. I am available in the evenings when the student arrives home from school and on weekends if needed.

Thank You,
Henrietta

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary Math

I have worked well with students who are entering another grade level and may not understand the new curriculum.
