Fairmont State University (Psychology)
My name is Keeper. I am the oldest child of six and I am 24 years old. I have had a lot of experience working with children from the time I was very young up until now. Being the oldest I started with responsibilities of helping to take care of my younger siblings early. After that I worked at a daycare while in high school. I did a work study program during the day with the 2-6 age range, and then also worked for the after school program at the end of my school day. These children ranged anywhere from 6 years of age up to 13. We would work on their homework if they had any and were requested by parents to finish before any play time after school. We also played games and made sure every one was socializing appropriately with one another.
I also was a lifeguard at the local city pool for two years after high school while in college. I taught swim lessons to many different children then as well. This was a very rewarding job for me. It also was very fun and enjoyable. I do not have experience tutoring necessarily, but I have helped my friends children with homework or studying for tests and seen great results with them. I have a very strong passion for children and their ability to grow into beautiful and amazing people if guided in the right direction. That is why I am planning on getting my teaching degree once I get enrolled back into college. I want to work with young children no matter where my career takes me. I am a very easy person to get along with, especially with children. I believe that a child is more receptacle to learn correctly, or to be more interested in the material when they have someone other than a parent trying to help them. I may not have all the experience in this field, but I know that I have the ability to learn and grow just as I want to help you do the same. I am very passionate as I said before about helping to improve the quality of ones ability to learn and retain information.
The education I have received through high school, and three years of college has prepared me well to able to help anyone who might not have the best understanding of reading. The patience I have as a person is a quality I believe can help to explain how to better understand what the words in front of someone actually mean and how slowing down to understand is perfectly ok. I understand everyone learns in different ways, and if the approach being taken isn't working effectively that there are better options.
There are so many different ways to study materials so that they stick with you. It may be just reading something multiple times for some and others need to write the material down multiple times so that they can retain it. Again my patience in finding the best option for you is something I will never let you down on. We can always find the most effective way to reach your fullest potential. Encouragement that you are doing well and showing you that even if you don't believe you are getting it that you are is something I believe in strongly. I will find a way to show you that we are improving each day.
My ability to make fun out of learning with children is something that I think helps them to want to learn. I have a lot of experience with children in this age rage. Being the oldest of six kids growing up made me very protective and instinctive to what is best. It also taught me that every child is different and can learn in different ways. Seeing my siblings go through their education all learning in different ways made me more aware of this. I get great satisfaction from being a part of building developing minds due to my love for their young innocence. I feel that I have always had a very close relationship with any child I may come across. It's almost like I was given this life to help them in anyway I may be able. If it is in the way of education I am more than willing to put forth my best efforts to help them improve.
I can assure you that if you are willing to get to know me as a person that I will not let you or your child down. We will find the most effective way to enhance their skills. They will enjoy who I am as a person and feel as if I an genuinely interested in what is best for them. Likewise I will enjoy you being open and receptive to what I am trying to help you achieve. I am a very easy going and easy to get along with person who likes nothing more than to smile and make the best out of any situation. I hope that together our personalities can shine and succeed!
