About Ann

I am a hands on educator. I feel that students learn when you get to their level. I dont believe in being gruff, but patient and understanding. I will admit I am stern when I dont think the child is trying, but as a parent of six I know that children learn in different ways, so I try to see how they learn and go from there.

I am working toward my BA in Elementary Education. I want to be able to work with all ages of students and make them feel good about themselves. I have seen very frustrated students and when an educator makes them feel bad about themselves they dont want to learn. I also believe in Gardners Learning Styles, so as I mentioned before I will try to work with what style works well for the child.

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.

Phonics

To start children out with learning phonics, I am a big fan of useing alphabet flash cards to encourage the recognition of each letter. I make sure when we go over the letters we work on the sounds of each letter. This helps the students recognize the sound of each letter. We would work on that at least three times a week for ten minutes.

I also like to make learning phonic fun for the younger students by doing dance or doing funny songs so they can make the letter sounds. " A says ah ...every letter has a sound A says ah"
However I do it I just want the student to enjoy learning it.

Older students we build on the foundation that was set, and work on sounding out the words. I think reading out loud and with each other is a good thing. I love the starfall.com site. It has alot of phonic games to help with reading. I think that they should enjoy what they are learning.
