My name is Shawneca M., an international teacher from the island of Jamaica. I have over five years experience in teaching. I am currently teaching at Highland Elementary where I am a kindergarten teacher. I have taught first grade for 4 years, third grade for 1 year and sixth grade for four months. I am interesting in being a tutor because I believe that I have the qualifications and skills that are geared to making children being successful academically and also building confidence in themselves.I allow children to feel comfortable and motivated by allowing them to have fun while learning. Children have different learning styles such as visual, auditory and tactile. I use the first week to find out the learning style of my students and plan my lessons that best cater to their needs. I do different researches to find creative ways to teach students so that they are able to comprehend what was taught. I use different assessment to assess my students to see if they are learning.
I believe that every child can learn and every child most learn.The most important quality that I posses as a teacher is my love and passion for teaching young people. I am very creative and innovative at all times my lessons are created for the development of my students. I always provide a print rich environment for my students to best meet their needs.
I promote and facilitate dialogue between my students and myself to gain feedback on the effective of my class. Motivational strategies that have work for me are creating unique activities and rewarding students with certificates. The desire to see all my students being successful is my driving force as an educator.
I am an outstanding math teacher because I allow my students to do critical thinking. Where they will be able to solve math problems on their own and feel confident.
Reading is plays a very important part in a child's life. I was award teacher of the year for making a difference in early reading. I am able to meet children on their levels and meet their needs if they are struggling in reading.
I am very passionate about phonics. I believe that if a child has the phonics skills he/she will be able to read.
