Dear Student My name is Freda, I have a background working with children at home and in school settings. I was a Teachers's aid, or TSS Therapeutic Support System for a wraparound program in Pennsylvania. I assisted Children by tutoring them in the homework club, and worked as a resident counselor at a residential property through HOC in Silver Spring, MD. I have assisted children, by using therapeutic counseling. I worked with children who had a diagnosis, such as ADHD, or and who had problems in the classroom with completing their lessons. My approach to learning is to have fun while learning. I use games and use reading material and worksheets. The subjects I like to tutor are in Art, Writing, Reading, and basic math skills. I will tutor basic Math for elementary school students. I will give my full attention to you the student by helping you with completing home work assignments and assisting you with achieving your school goals. I love working with children.
I like using art in teaching. It is also about connecting with others through sharing your creativity. My Tutoring lesson plans include: art work sheets, illustration, painting, Reading books, practice handwriting and vocabulary skills, basic math skills, using flash cards and using addition, subtraction, multiplication and division worksheets. As an Artist, teacher and tutor, one of the many things I love to create is the connection between the lessons I teach and the art making I bring back to you, the student. I will try to create an empowerment environment for you and every child. Dear Student My name is Freda, I have a background working with children at home and in school settings.

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.
I am qualified because I worked for 2 years at Pennsylvania Counseling service as a TSS, (Therapeutic Support Worker) in school with children diagnosed with ADD/ADHD. I assisted them by keeping them focused, by talking and translating to children in a therapeutic way, what the teacher wants them to do in the class rooms. I also assisted children in completing their homework assignments, which include learning music, art, reading and math skills. I used individual behavior techniques for each child, by using one on one talk therapy and cognitive therapy.
