About Mason

I currently work as a kindergarten Instructional Assistant in Worcester Public Schools, and I'm pursuing my Licensure in Primary education. I have taught multiple core subjects to grades k-9 during my Summer work with a community outreach Summer School (The Worcester Partnership). These subjects include CC math, social studies, science, writing instruction, guided reading among others.

And on a personal note, I believe that every student is a champion facing down the greatest challenge of their lives, success in education.

Some students can benefit from a different perspective on their subjects in order to get caught up, others may need a greater challenge to keep their minds active and engaged.

In my experience working with all primary, middle, and some high-school grades, having an educational mentor (tutor) can be just the motivator they need towards their success. I have much experience working in both large and small groups, and have passed my Communication and Literacy MTEL. I am pursuing dual licensure in Massachusetts.

Previous to teaching in an urban school district, I spent seven years working in an environmental school program, supplementing public and private students' academics with experiential learning opportunities. Our program would take the same guidelines used in the classroom and design games and projects that would cover the same concepts. Because of this experience, I have seen first hand how powerful and effective physical activity, game, art, and atmosphere can be when applied appropriately. I have also come to realize that in many public schools these are the elements that have slowly been dissolved in favor of more structured drilling for standardized testing.

After initial assessment , I'll draft a plan for success free of charge. This will act as a reference for parents, student, their classroom teacher, and myself. It will also be an agreement that all parties understand the expectation.

My goal for all of my students is to create lessons that truly engage them by applying elements of their own interests. My initial assessment covers the subject requested, and a survey of their personal interests (video games, movies, sports/hobbies, music), and in this way I can design lessons that target areas for support, as well as utilize themes that are already engaging for the student. I have avoided using the word 'fun', however it is the essential medium of exchange in my lessons.

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.

Common Core
