About Amla

I am a Licensed Professional Counselor who has a passion for motivating students at all levels. There is much that I have learned from the tutoring of students in the past years. Many students come to me for tutoring help due to the fact that their performance during the school year had not been satisfactory. As such, it is important for me to gather pertinent background family and academic history to understand the student as a whole before attempting to provide assistance with specific subjects.

During remedial tutoring, it is cardinal to determine the root cause of problems. Once the cause of problems has been identified, then the focus needs to be on the strengths of students. Similarly, strategies for strengthening the weaker areas need to be addressed at a pace comfortable for students.

It is a known fact that students who perform well in Reading and Math are likely to be more successful than their peers who do not. Therefore, I highly recommend to parents and students that they read at least one to three books per week. During the readings, the meanings of new words must be defined for proper understanding of their contextual use. As a matter of fact, a dictionary should be placed in each student's room should internet connection fail during the search for definitions.

Educators, parents, guardians, caregivers, teachers, tutors, and counselors, need to recognize that the success of students are linked directly to students' living environments. As such, an atmosphere conducive for learning must be provided for all students at all times. The success of students depend on the rapport, empathy, enthusiasm, motivation, and support of their mentors. A lack of any one of these elements in "well-trained professionals" are deleterious for student success. Conscientious adults will find creative strategies for promoting every student in a culturally competent manner.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Biology

I have experience in tutoring Honor's Biology for high school students. The success rate has been exceptionally good based on quiz and test results.

ESL/ESOL

I have experience tutoring other students one on one who speak English as a Second Language for many years. I have familiarity with the difficulties or challenges with speaking English as a second language based on personal experience. I have recognition of the learning styles of students and tailoring lessons for maximum benefit. I have experience adopting mechanisms which have brought success to past students.

Hindi

I am a native speaker of the Hindi language. I have been conversing in the Hindi language from a very young age. I guide my students at a pace convenient for them while encouraging challenges appropriate for their learning skills. I am able to help students with translations from and into the English and Hindi languages, and vice versa. I am also able to assist those interesting in learning Hindi songs by reviewing their lyrics.

Reading

Extensive experience in tutoring students who struggle due to developmental delays.

Spelling

Spelling correctly is the first step to reading and writing well. Building a strong foundation in spelling words accurately can greatly benefit all individuals. It is extremely important to pay proper attention to students who may be struggling with spelling projects in earlier grades in order to prepare them for studying all subjects in schools.

Vocabulary

I have experience tutoring students who have limited vocabulary and would like to add to their vocabulary list. My unique style of tutoring makes learning fun for my students and they are able to stay focused on their learning during the tutoring session.

Writing

Having written extensively throughout my educational career has well prepared me to offer tutoring lessons to those who may be struggling with this important subject.
