I am an experienced teacher having spent a total of 2.3 years teaching. I spent 1.3 years as a Permanent Substitute and 1 year as a Teacher's Assistant in the Syosset and Eastport-South Manor School Districts. I prepared and taught lessons in all subjects and also instructed students one-to-one on a daily basis. I have instructed students in every grade from Kindergarten through 6th grade.
I have had numerous experiences teaching handwriting. I use a variety of methods. I provide instruction through the use of dry erase boards, chalkboards, worksheets, and having the child complete a story that has been started in a notebook. I always emphasize neatness and correct spacing. I also support instruction by adjusting the students grip on the writing implement, as necessary. I further advise that students may additionally benefit by performing activities that sharpen fine motor skills, not just handwriting exercises themselves.
I use the Literacy Collaborative for phonics instruction. I have experience teaching phonics through guided reading and writing, as well as interactive reading and writing. I also use picture cards that emphasize a specific sound or letter, as well as matching games and word games. I first assess the student and then instruct based upon each students needs.
I have tutored prealgebra to both 6th and 7th grade students. These students improved their grades significantly.
Study skills are an important part of a student's education. I have successfully assisted students in setting up study schedules to ease stress and assist with organization. I have also taught students effective note-taking skills, how to listen effectively, how to consolidate information, how to break down complex ideas, how to set up their own study guide, and how to effectively review each days material. I have had success teaching these valuable skills at all elementary grade levels.
