Rowan University (Elementary education)
I am dedicated to inspire children to learn by using a unique combination of education experience coupled with seven years in dance education, 5 years of observing teachers in a professional learning community, three years of substitute teaching, two years of tutoring in Reading, Language Arts and Writing and background experience of caregiving. These experiences have all prepared me to become an elementary school teachers. While planning instruction I implement students academic and social needs. I review student interests and try by best to apply student interests in my lessons. I believe I have great ideas when it comes to choosing activities that are creative and engaging.
I have experience working closely with math curriculums. In the fall of 2015, I was trained in the Pearson envision programs for math, online and using the textbook. Students are able to complete a pre and post test of their math skills. The pre test is to establish where the child is academically in math, what the child's strengths are and where to start improving growth in the child's weaknesses. Supplementary math materials like worksheets and hands on activities are implemented. Math games are also available.
I am highly qualified in reading. I am certified in Teacher of Reading from grades K-12. From 2014-2015 I spent in Rowan's Reading clinic. For one year I was trained in the Critical Reading Program and Words Their Way program. These programs help establish the students comprehension, fluency and word study level. I use these programs in my tutoring sessions because they allow me to place the students academic level and understand what areas the student needs to develop in. I am a firm believer that in order to engage the student with in a lesson you must find what the student is interested in, their likes and dislikes. I choose all reading books and writing prompts based off the students interest. This helps motivate and engage the student.

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.
