About Lee

I compassionately welcome all of my future students and parents. I understand the frustrations many students have learning academic skills because I was diagnosed as having a learning difference as a child and I never wanted any child to struggle like I did in school and that is why I made a career change and went to school to become a special education teacher. I had trouble focusing and understanding what was being learned in class but I have learned ways to help myself learn and I want to share them with every student I can. Every student learns differently and there is nothing wrong with learning differently because every student has a learning ability. I am a mentor as well as a tutor, I bring my many lifelong experiences with me everywhere I go to help my students gain their confidence and I help them believe in themselves by talking with them about school and about life and about making good positive choices throughout their lives. I am not a clock watcher and I do not believe in rushing through lessons because if we are in a hurry to finish a lesson, we are in a hurry to go nowhere. I am more interested in my students understanding of what they have worked on with me.
Having a positive attitude will get my students everywhere they want and need to be in life and I have a very straightforward approach to tutoring academic skills because learning is fun. I find out what my students interests are and I use their interests to get them actively involved with learning. I break down lessons and teach one step at a time adding more steps to complete each lesson. I ask my students to tell me what they are thinking as we are working on lessons together helping them build up their thinking and problem solving skills. It is very important to have great social communication skills and this will help students express their thoughts verbally and in writing about their thoughts. I have very high expectations for all of my students and I want the very best out of life for them.
Education:
I graduated from Wayne State University with a Bachelors of Science Degree in Education with a Major in Special Education winter 2012.
Current: Substitute Paraprofessional for PCMI and EDU Staff
I have worked in many of the Waterford Public schools since February 2013. I have worked many weekly assignments at Kingsley Montgomery and just completed a 3 month long term sub assignment at Houghton Elementary.
