I have been a parapro in a local school district for four years. Prior to that, I worked as a substitute teacher for three years. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Engineering. I love helping kids to learn. It a nice feeling to realize you've help a child understand a new concept. I take the approach that every child learns differently. Each child needs a individualized plan tailored to their needs. The goals should be realistic and attainable, to give the child a sense of accomplishment. I would work with the parents and the child both, to develop a long term plan.
I am the parent of two boys, who both have learning disabilities and I was a foster parent, so I have experience in helping students with learning disabilities. I am very patient when working with the child and can understand when they may start to become frustrated. When that happens, I will have the child take a short break or play an educational game. I will not move on until the child has a complete understanding of the material. I would make an excellent tutor for your child because of my experience and my love of children.

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 know from my work as a parent and a substitute Parapro and teacher that success is important and the child can't be overwhelmed with the assignment.
I have a son who has ADHD. I know the tutor has to be very patient. A student with ADHD will need extra time. They will need a break after a while, instead of studying straight through for an hour. For the ADHD child, the lessons should be broken down into small pieces that will give the child the greatest chance to succeed. This will give the child confidence.
I have worked as a paraprofessional for a local school district for four years, I am currently working in a 1st grade class. Prior to this, I worked as a substitute teacher for 3 years. I've subbed in many elementary schools. I subbed mainly in elementary and understand how to teach the elementary grades. I have had some long term jobs working in elementary schools and know how to teach to different academic levels and to understand when a child is having difficulty understanding a subject. I have worked as a substitute paraprofessional helping students on an individual basis quite often, and know the techniques to help a young child master a subject.
I have been working as a substitute for three years. Many of these jobs have been in elementary schools. I know how to break down words by sounds and then have the students put the sounds together to form words. When working with phonics, I also would make sure the student knew each letter sound individually. The student has to be able to identify beginning and ending sounds by naming the letters when given the words.
