Bio

My name is Myra and I am here to help! I have the patience and time to ensure that you not only understand the work, but also have fun doing it.
I find that one-on-one tutoring works the best. I do assign homework and give tests. I firmly believe in having a flexible structure so that students know what to expect, oftentimes a "getting started" activity is used to transition into the tutoring session.

My name is Myra and I am here to help! I have the patience and time to ensure that you not only understand the work, but also have fun doing it.
I find that one-on-one tutoring works the best. I do assign homework and give tests. I firmly believe in having a flexible structure so that students know what to expect, oftentimes a "getting started" activity is used to transition into the tutoring session. I break the session into several shorter segments of various activities, i.e., 10 minutes of oral reading or discussion, 5 minutes for a game or other fun activity, 10 minutes for writing, math drill, etc. The length and content of these segments will depend on the attention span and needs of each student. I find that students will get less restless if they know in advance when the session will begin and end, so I always use a timer. Knowing that students take in information through different learning channels (visual, auditory and kinesthetic), and that one or two of these may dominate in any student, I use special, colored markers and objects to facilitate learning. Sometimes putting things in different colors, using manipulative objects or even physical movement to represent concepts can be very helpful. I also recommend tape recorders to help students who have trouble deciding and remembering what they want to write about. If your student is a reluctant reader, I have found it useful to offer to take turns reading every other sentence in the paragraph. This eases the pressure on the student and gives the student a chance to hear and see accurate reading skills. This is especially helpful for a reading comprehension assignment as it gives the student more time to absorb the material. I give positive praise. I do not do the students' work for them. I do allow for failure and learning to take place. My goal is independent learning. I also will ask the students how they think they did or evaluate their own response as well as relating what they are learning to their own life experiences. I will keep my commitment and I expect you to keep your commitment.

I look forward to helping you and your student find the greatness that lies within all of us.
