About Margaret

My love for English and learning is the reason that I have chosen to remain a classroom teacher. For me, being a teacher also means being a tutor. Why? When students have difficulties understanding the material or have been absent, I become a tutor, providing individual or small group instruction during class and after school. I want my students to develop a mastery of the English language as well as a love for learning. To achieve mastery, students need practice and constant reinforcement. I believe that mastering content develops a love for it.

Having taught for over 30 years, I recognize that students are different and learn differently. As a result, I make an effort to be flexible and present difficult material in simple and various ways. This means incorporating visuals, audios, and games--whatever it takes to get the content across. Developing a knowledge of the student's learning style also helps me in tutoring because I can provide activities that are appropriate for that student, resulting in student success. Technology, such an integral part of our lives, is also employed to help students become independent learners at their own pace.
