About Scott

I specialize in education within all subject areas. I have 2 graduate degrees in education. The first was in teaching, in which, I taught at a public school for 13 years. I then moved into administration, and I was an assistant principal and a principal. Furthermore, I have an undergraduate degree in communications, which has assisted me in communicating with students who have different learning styles. Today's students are expected to move at a rapid pace utilizing technology and other standardized testing goals to achieve academic proficiency. I understand these expectations, along with the core curriculum, and I have the skill set to assist students ascertain this information.

My main goal when I am tutoring is is not to judge students, but rather, to display various modalities to reinforce their prior knowledge with techniques to guide them towards academic proficiency within the classroom and out of the classroom in their daily lives.

I am also quite versed in the area of today's standardized testing protocol and what needs to be included in an Individualized Educational Plan(IEP)/504 plan, if a student has one or the parent/guardian feels that she/he needs to explore those options.

I go to great strides to assist students that I tutor to relax,and I can provide relaxation techniques along with test taking/executive functioning methods that will be helpful. Research states that when students are anxious, their brain shuts down, and they cannot process information. Thus when I tutor a student I provide a calm, motivated atmosphere that would result in reaching goals of the student, parent/guardian and school district. I take great pride in what I do, and I look forward to hearing from you soon, so we could discuss what areas we need to concentrate upon and prepare to accomplish those expectations.

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 (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher and principal according to the Illinois State Board of Education. During my 13 years in the classroom, I have successfully taught and tutored in all subject areas, and I have obtained dynamic success. I was nominated for the Golden Apple Award, and I have the ability to get students to relax and turn their obstacles into opportunities.

Elementary Math

I taught math within the public school system for 13 years and obtained a Golden Apple nomination for my teaching methods. This included the respect I had for my students, and their diverse learning styles.

English

I was recently published in the Tribune, and I have an undergraduate degree in communications, which helps me explain different subject areas in an efficient fashion. Furthermore, I have 2 graduate degrees in teaching and leadership. A lot of the coursework was required to be in a written format. Lastly, I was nominated for the Golden Apple Award, while I was a teacher.

Grammar

I am endorsed by the State of Illinois as English teacher. I creatively taught and designed numerous English units. I have been published in the Chicago Tribune. I have a deep understanding of motivation and behavior to assistant students in achieving their goals.

Handwriting

As a classroom teacher, I had the opportunity to teach cursive writing to various grade levels using a multi-sensory approach. I make cursive writing a fun experience by using games, art, and other modalities to reach a diverse group of students. This makes them feel relaxed and produce quality work.

I have an undergraduate degree in communications with an emphasis on public speaking. In the past, I have been trained privately in the area of public speaking in which I picked up numerous techniques to help students believe, succeed, and achieve.
