I love teaching! I really do. I enjoy having time to see my students grow. To see their eyes light up when they have learned something new, or after many struggles of trying to figure out something that might seem hard, finally getting it.
With over six years of teaching experience, I have a passion with seeing that students succeed. I was once that child in which school didn't come easy. But because of awesome tutors who never stopped believing in me, success became something I learned to become acquainted to.
I have experience working with second and third grade, but I also have taught fourth grade math. I believe this puts me at an advantage because phonics, spelling, and comprehension all spiral from first to fifth grade. Comprehension is such a vital component that all students must become comfortable with in order to become successful.
What I like to do is talk to a parent and/or guardian about the students' needs. This also might consist of speaking with the student's teacher. Next I would give a pre assessment to see where they loopholes are. After that, if there are multiple loopholes, then I would concentrate on the one area that is hindering the student's performance the most. I like to match the area with Common Core Standards. This helps me guide instruction more. After a few sessions, l will reassess and review for further guidance in instruction.
I look forward to hearing from all of you and your needs for success! I love teaching! I really do. I enjoy having time to see my students grow.

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.
As a reading tutor/instructor, my goals for students are to have them be able to:
Ask and answer questions to demonstrate understanding of a text, to determine the main idea of a text, to recount the key details and explain how they support the main idea. Students should also be able to determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, distinguishing literal from nonliteral language. They should have the ability to refer to parts of stories, dramas, and poems when writing or speaking about a text, using terms such as chapter, scene, and stanza, and describe how each successive part builds on earlier sections. Last but not least, they should be able to distinguish their own point of view from that of the narrator or those of the characters.
