About Ami

I was teaching in the Evanston/Skokie District for two years as an ESL teacher for elementary students. I am certified in teaching elementary education, and also have an ESL certificate. I worked with students K-5. I was able to help them with their grammar, as well as spelling and vocabulary. I would try to make the activities fun for the students and would turn grammar lessons into games if possible. This makes the students more interested in the subject and will help increase their grammar skills.

Being a resource teacher, I was only able to focus on students for 30 minutes to an hour per day. I was able to focus on the needs of the students and try to help them be as productive as possible in a short timespan. I would work with the general education teachers to best fit the needs of the students. This why I am interested in tutoring- it requires being focused on the student's needs in a short amount of time. It is thrilling to see how far students can come with just a little extra help.

I taught in a district that used Common Core standards for two years. I was able to see how the standards worked for grades k-5 and how teachers were able to individualize their lessons to the Common Core Standards. I have a very good understanding of the expectations teachers have and will be able to help your student understand the material better.

At the moment I am very flexible with my schedule. I genuinely loved my job as a teacher, and specifically as a resource teacher. I believe tutoring has a lot of similar qualities as a resource teacher, and my experiences will allow me to help your student in whatever subjects or skills they need. As I get to know your student, I can help make learning a more fun and interesting experience.
