Jackson State University , Jackson Ms (Elementary Education)
My name is Deon, an educator from Indianapolis, Indiana. Currently, a Senior at Jackson State University majoring in Elementary Education with a math concentration. I am a part of the premier program called Call Me MISTER, in which I am trained to be what my students need in order to help them grow. Over the years, I have been a book buddy at Van Winkle Elementary and a reading interventionist for a 21st century summer program at Jackson State. Even now, I am student teaching with the hopes of becoming a fantastic educator.
Tutoring holds an interest for me because it allows me to directly relay as much as I can to the student that I am tutoring. Through tutoring, different lessons that are taught can be improved upon to become even more effective for the next student, or class to whom it is taught. As much as tutoring is for the student, I have come to realize that it is just as important for me. Understanding myself, my strengths and weaknesses as a teacher through many interactions with students, and the knack for developing new, positive, and productive relationships helps to mold me into the educator that is needed.
Understanding comes from a firm foundation. By putting into place and reinforcing the foundation, the student can then build.
Spoken on different platforms. Participated in oratorical contests. Can reinforce subject-verb agreement as well as written and verbal grammar.

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.
Being trained in Learning Essentials for Teachers of Reading and Spelling has equipped me to tutor on some of the issues hurting students: letter-sound correspondences, and phonemic awareness amongst other things. Being able to get to the root of the problem helps in putting the student on the right track. I can meet students where they are, and work to improve their skills.
