About Alexa

Hi, my name is Alexa. I am currently an Elementary School Teacher. I truly have a love for teaching and enjoy being able to enrich a child's life by instilling a love for learning. I'm passionate, motivating and caring. My positive attitude and my contagious smile will encourage your child to try their absolute best. This will help your child excel to their highest potential! I have many years experience teaching struggling students. Prior to working in the school that I am currently working, I worked in a special education school which had a variety of students that struggled in many different areas. Working in my current school and the school I use to work, has given me many different teaching methods that I will be able to incorporate into each of my sessions with your child.

My goal for my students is to excel in math and make it more enjoyable. Some of the issues that arise in math is visualization and understanding math problems. Having a background in special education I have learned ways to help students visualize these problems in a more effective way, which in turn makes difficult math problems much easier. I will work with your child on their specific needs and will instill the use helpful methods that they can use in the future. These methods will allow an overall improve to your child's math difficulties. Not all students learn the same way, so it is important to cater to your child specific learning needs. This is especially important in math.

As a current teacher I have daily reading groups. The current reading program that I follow is reading A- Z. I truly love this program. It helps with sight words memorization, phonics skills, and comprehension skills. I would be able to bring all the tools that I have learned and the lessons that I use in the classroom to my tutoring sessions. I believe that this program is an effective way to help struggling students learn important phonics rules. Learning these rules will help the student with reading and become overall stronger readers. This will do the following: build confidence, make students want to try their best and really start to allow them to truly gain a love for reading.

Being that I am a current teacher I am familiar with common core. The school that I currently work for is very data driven and believes in making sure that students excel in all subject areas. We strive to make sure that students reach NYS standards as well as our high standards that we set for them too. I believe that students achievement is based upon giving students all the necessary tools they need to make their achievements possible. The students that I work with will get all the necessary tools they need in order to see improvements.

Again, I am really passionate and truly try to inspire a love for learning within the students that I work with. I have a strong approach that builds confidence within the child. This is important because for struggling students because they usually do not have that confidence within themselves. They are use to failing and not doing well. I make sure that my students know that they can achieve all they set out to achieve. I break the wall of embarrassment and disappointment and turn it into success and a new found love of learning.

I really look forward to hearing from you!
