About Tajma

Teaching is a passion for me. I believe that educating the whole child is of utmost importance. Each child is an individual with differences and these differences need to be recognized, respected and definitely celebrated. Children have different learning styles, and this is why differentiation in teaching is essential. My instruction promotes critical and creative thinking. As a teacher I have high expectations focusing on each and every student becoming a respectful individual, responsible problem-solver and a life-long learner. I want to empower my students in their learning. Teaching is not simply a job it’s a calling for me where I find such joy in making a difference in the lives of children.

I have been a full time teacher for twenty years. I currently teach 5th grade at the International School of Indiana. I have had experience tutoring my students but have also tutored at the high school level. This year I tutored an exchange student in ninth grade who lived with me. The advantage of tutoring is the opportunity to work one on one with the student.

Math was never my favorite subject in school so as a teacher of Math I have made sure that my students understand each math concept in a fun way through games and hands on activities.

English has always been one of my best subjects to teach as I specialized in it at college and have taught English throughout my teaching career thus far, including at my present school. I have also lived and taught English in South Korea and Thailand where English was a second, sometimes even third language for some of my students.

Right now I am on summer break so my hours are flexible. Looking forward to preparing you for a successful school year in 2016-17.
