I am a recent graduate from UMASS Dartmouth with a BA in English Communications and Rhetoric. I have been a substitute teacher in the Swansea School system for over a year, and work summers as a counselor at Camp Ramsbottom in Rehoboth, MA.
Working with students and campers has given me the opportunity to explore different methods of teaching through cooperation and reward. I am trustworthy and reliable. I take personal interest in every student, and I don't cut corners.
I have worked one-on-one with students in the Berkley school system and tutored several students in English at UMASS Dartmouth. This experience has given me a strong foundation and increased my desire to teach.
I am excited and interested to meet all new students and develop specific learning plans with each individual. I will plan a grade relevant assessment for our first session in order to create a lesson plan that will match with the student's curriculum and not only help raise grades, but increase understanding as well.
My motivation comes from a background of mixed learning methods. I've gone to inner city classes that have had upwards of 35 students in a classroom to college classes of seven. I understand the importance of singular focus with a student and appreciate the opportunities that arise with that sort of recognition. The sense of accomplishment and pride can be astounding and lead to breakthroughs in academics, social arenas, and extra-curricular activities.
I am available every evening, and weekends. I hope to hear from you. I am a recent graduate from UMASS Dartmouth with a BA in English Communications and Rhetoric.
