About VIRGINIA

Hi, my name is Virginia C., I am an individual that enjoy working with the youths. I have enjoyed having the opportunity of being the Executive Director, of a program that helps children with their Reading and Math. The program is called, The Side Walk Scholar. It is a literacy program designed by a Colleague, for children grades K-4. This program is built on a philosophical theory. We believe children should not only be seen but heard as well. We become the listeners and they become the speakers. The program is held here in South Bend, IN.

I am also a former substitute teacher. I taught for several years, before obtaining my Master's degree. I enjoyed working with a program for children that was utilized in the South Bend, IN schools. The program is called, The Explorer Program, it was designed for children to reach their potential Reading and Math levels. I taught children in a small group setting. This allowed children to receive undivided attention, to help them focus on a particular subject. I hope to inspire many more children with the knowledge I have gain throughout my studies from college. I would like to help more children to become all that they can be in this new millennium.

I am also computer literate. Therefore, I am proficient in, Micro/word, excel, and power-point. I am a great listener as well as a great communicator. I hope to influence students in a positive way. I have had several great teachers. And, I would like to give back the knowledge in which I was given as a student. I am determine to show progression in the field of studies I chose to tutor.
