About Lisa

For my experience, I've tutored an elementary student in reading and computer skills, as well as some mentally handicapped high school students. I worked with the elementary student on his reading speed and comprehension, as well as on his willingness and ability to pay attention to what he was reading. I worked with the high school students on activities that their disabilities were suited for, such as simple mathematics.
My methods would definitely depend upon the child I was tutoring. Everyone learns in different ways and at different speeds. However, I feel that the first, and maybe the most important, thing to work on is attention. Often times, students lose focus and lack attention skills, and this is where the trouble begins. After that is worked on, I would work on their individual issues with specific subjects.
I have a degree in counseling, and therefore, I have a good set of listening skills. Tutoring is more than just getting the student to listen. Sometimes, the tutor needs to listen to the student as well, to determine where the problem areas are and what is causing them.
