Western Michigan University (Special Educaiton)
Hi! My name is Cassandra. I have a degree special education and love to help students succeed.
My love for teaching came from volunteering in my youngest son's general education and special education classrooms. I had never thought of becoming a teacher until I found myself volunteering in the classroom tutoring students. On days I was scheduled to work at the school, I remember telling my husband I was going to the school to play for the day. Between my realization for my love of teaching and the encouragement of some awesome teachers at my son’s school, I started my educational journey to become a teacher.
My teaching philosophy is quite simple: all students can learn new skills despite their ability level. We all learn new skills differently; therefore part of teaching is finding new creative ways of teaching the same subject. Part of teaching is to be a team player. So as your son or daughter's tutor I believe in open communication with you. I believe part of educating students is holding them responsible for their actions and expecting students, as well as myself, to do our personal best at all times. Hi! My name is Cassandra.

When I first contacted Cassandra she responded right away and we got into tutoring that same week. She always responds to messages so quickly. She assessed my son's math needs and is focusing on what he needs work on. She is very patient and knowledgeable and my son loves his tutoring sessions!!! I am so grateful to have found a wonderful tutor!!
Cassandra has been tutoring my grandson for the last 6 months now. He has improved in his math since she has been his tutor. My grandson was recently diagnosed with ADHD . He has been on 3 different meds since Cassandra has met him. My grandson has not always been the easiest child to tutor in the last few months. Cassandra has shown great patience with him. She knows how to make learning a fun experience. Cassandra is very good at coming up with ideas and strategies that work well in helping my grandson learn different subjects. She is kind yet firm. She has not only helped my grandson , but she has helped me get through these past few months , on how to deal with ADHD. I am very grateful that I found the help that my grandson needed.
Cassandra is using creative activities to make writing interesting and fun for my daughter. She is quick to access the needs and develop a good working relationship. She is also flexible!
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.
