About Mark

My name is Mark, and from October 2002-May 2011, I was employed by the Duval County School Board and Kelly Services in Jacksonville, Florida as an Elementary School Substitute Teacher. As a substitute, I taught students in grades 1-5 in the following subjects. I taught Science, Social studies, Language Arts and Math. I followed the lesson plans left by the teacher for the students to work on. I would also leave a detailed note informing the teacher what was accomplished during the day. If we had time left over, I showed students some Math tricks which showed Math is fun. The students liked this very much.

I expect the student to be prepared for the serious for the session and if they start acting up, I will stop immediately. I believe the student should work hard in what they do.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I feel I am qualified to tutor students in Grades K-5th grade because for 9 years these were the grades I substitute taught. In Math, we would practice multiplication problems by using flash cards or I would quiz them orally. In Language Arts, handwriting was practiced every day by writing the alphabet upper and lower case letters in cursive.

Elementary Math

When I was a substitute teacher for Elementary Math, we did many different things depending on the grade level. For students learning multiplication, I would get out flash cards and go around the room and ask each student for the answer. Or I would orally quiz the class on the multiplication tables. I also taught them a game called Multiplication baseball and the students enjoyed it. For the students learning math for the first time, we would count on the 1-100 chart to find the answer. I enjoy teaching students in 1st thru 5th grade elementary math.

Handwriting

Teaching handwriting is important to a student. When I was substitute teaching in Language Arts, we had a daily session in Handwriting. Many teachers want their assignments handwritten and not done on the computer. I would use an overhead projector with a sheet with the letters on it. I would trace the letters and show the students step by step how to make the letters both in cursive and in the printed form. Then, I would hand out worksheets to the students with the letters on it and have them trace the letters step by step.
