About Guiane

Hello parents and students,

My name is Guiane, and I am looking for a great opportunity to tutor a student in either math or reading.

Information on me:
I am originally from North Carolina, and in December 2008, I received a Bachelor of Arts in Economics and in Management & Society from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In 2010, I spent a year teaching English to children in Seoul, South Korea. I moved back to New York in 2011 and began teaching 3rd grade in Canarsie, Brooklyn. I taught in Canarsie for three years before taking another year to travel domestically and internationally. In that year, I spent several months in Sydney, Australia and taught English for months in Thailand. I currently teach 2nd grade in East New York, Brooklyn.

My thoughts on tutoring:
I have tutored students in math for approximately ten years, and I have tutored math on all levels. I love teaching math because I push my students to understand math conceptually. When I teach math, I use a lot of concrete objects and pictures so that my students understand on a deeper level, and these techniques spark curiosity in my students.

While teaching English in Korea, I learned many techniques to engage students, and I relied on these engagement techniques because my young students started the year speaking little to no English. I had to be engaging to keep their attention! As a result, I excel in engaging my students now through the use of pictures, songs, stories and competitions. Also, I engage and invest students by tracking their progress in a visual way that is easy for them to understand.

Last thoughts:
I really enjoy working with students because my experiences give me the opportunity to develop critical thinking skills, confidence, self-esteem, and the curiosity for learning.

Approved subjects

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.
