My goal in teaching is to provide the nurturing environment that allows children to learn and grow intellectually. In my current position, I work with students that come from a variety of backgrounds and different socio-economic levels.
I have 10 years of experience providing instruction to special education children, as well as in a regular classroom. I think this diversity of training would make me a good candidate for a tutoring position.

For example, I have a great deal of experience working with students on different academic levels. I use my knowledge in this area to help relate my lessons to students.
I have an innate ability to read students' attitude and state of mind. I have a sincere desire to help students reach their fullest potential in Language Arts. My current position is a Middle School Special Education Teacher. It is essential to provide instruction in basic reading strategies using reciprocal teaching practice that includes predicting, visualizing, questioning, clarifying, and summarizing.
