Bio

I am a Pacific University graduate with a bachelor's degree in Education in Teaching and English Language Learning. In school, I never really enjoyed the way I was taught. The classes that I most enjoyed weren’t always the subjects that I was most interested in, but it was the classes in which I felt most comfortable. I had the best experiences with teachers that cared about my success as a person and educationally. As a third grade teacher, I strive to create an environment in which students...

I am a Pacific University graduate with a bachelor's degree in Education in Teaching and English Language Learning. In school, I never really enjoyed the way I was taught. The classes that I most enjoyed weren’t always the subjects that I was most interested in, but it was the classes in which I felt most comfortable. I had the best experiences with teachers that cared about my success as a person and educationally. As a third grade teacher, I strive to create an environment in which students can learn and feel cared about, and the same goes for tutoring. I teach to the whole child. May it be a elementary student or a high school student, everyone has a specific way of learning and I try to understand that before I can effectively teach them. I also employ a gradual release model of teaching. The most effective way of teaching requires modeling(I do), modeling between student and teacher and collaborative practice (we do), and finally independent use of the strategy by the student(you do). I have found that a combination of this strategy, teaching to the whole child, and differentiation is the most effective way of teaching to any kind of student. Of course, these method can be adjusted according to the student and the subject being taught.

I have three years of teaching experience in the elementary level. I work directly with underprivileged students who are over all behind grade level, so I am accustomed to differentiating and teaching to different learning styles.

The bachelor's program that I graduated from specifically taught me how to support English Language Learners in all subject areas. My major was Education in Teaching and English Language Learning and because of this, the strategies I bring to the table are effective for all learners. Students need to have scaffolding when learning a new language as well as many examples. Something that I am accustomed to doing while teaching writing and language.

I grew up speaking both Spanish and English, so the skills I have acquired both through my educatio

I am a third grade teacher who loves teaching math in many different ways. Math is a subject that involves various patterns. Those patterns can be taught through reasoning and memory based learning, something that I consider to be the best way to learn in math.
