About KIA

As a kid’s club counselor, I have experience working with preschool and kindergarten-age students. I have also tutored middle school students in reading, as well as college and high school students. Through these tutoring and counseling positions, I have learned how to best teach each age group. For example, I created songs to teach my three-year-old clubbers the club rules and motto, but I gave my college student daily quizzes to help her prepare for exams. I have worked with students of all ages, pre-k through adult. I have extensive experience in providing one-on-one instruction in Spanish, vocabulary, and spelling. In addition, I can provide academic coaching and help your child learn crucial organizational strategies and study skills that help performance in all areas.

I have assisted my third grader with her homework. She scored Advance in both Math and Reading on the Maryland State Assessment (MSAT's). She gets straight A's on her spelling test. We have fun with vocabulary words by singing them, making up cheers, and by playing silly word games. We play all kinds of online games for her to learn new words, such as Word Girl on PBS. Each game introduces four new vocabulary words and will reinforce their meaning in a variety of contexts throughout the game. We play these games to make learning fun, keeping children interested and learning.

I started taking Spanish in middle school and went to level IV. I always found the time and the love to help others. For instance, when I was in college; I would help tutor those taking Spanish by explaining the lesson, repeating, and writing down or translating when necessary. I would encourage them to practice and participate and to make sure they could follow the conversation. I found taking Spanish to be fun and exciting! I want to help students develop self-confidence and improve study skills. In addition, I want students to have an opportunity to speak up and ask questions, and have an opportunity that is sometimes unavailable or missed in a regular classroom setting.

I am passionate about helping students improve in all academic subjects. I still remember my excitement when my Spanish tutee received her first “A” on a quiz! I am confident that my passion and experience are the qualities you are looking for. I want to provide academic coaching and help your child learn crucial organizational strategies and study skills that help performance in all areas. Thank you so much for your time and consideration.

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.

Spanish

I took Spanish I-IV in High School and received all A's. In college, I tutored my friends in Spanish I & II. I won a Spanish Scholarship for the first year of college.

Spelling

When searching for employment, even making the simple mistakes on an application or résumé could cost you possible employment. That is why I find having a good vocabulary and being a good speller comes in handy. Often, it's not on obvious spelling errors that job seekers get snagged, but on the little niggling slip-ups that spell check might not catch. I will help you become a diligent and rigorous speller.

Vocabulary

In the past, I have helped children study their vocabulary words. I helped them learn the meaning of suffixes, prefixes, and roots of words, by going through word lists and making flash cards for the words they don’t know, and signing them up for a daily, “Word of the Day” email. My methods of learning new vocabulary would be to have them first read a passage, listen, and write down words that they don’t know. Then, I would have them to look up the word in a dictionary and write down its meaning in a vocabulary notebook. Finally, I would have them to use the new word several times in conversation as soon as they could.
