About Kirkland

I am a student at the University of South Carolina. Currently, I am a sophomore, and majoring in Elementary Education. And I am also a member of Alpha Lambda Delta, an honor society here at USC.

The reason I chose teaching was because I enjoy helping students reaching their full potential, and I feel that every student can achieve greatness. I am currently 19 years old and I grew up in the Lowcountry and just moved up here for school.

Regarding my experience in tutoring, I have been tutoring individuals since I was in high school. I mainly focused on developing reading, and handwriting skills.

Most recently though I started focusing in helping students in the third grade with math. I believe tutoring should be not only helpful, but also enjoyable. The best thing that I love about tutoring, is when students start to grasp a subject, because they are extremely happy, and feel incredible.

I am aware of the Math Standards for South Carolina, and have learned about Common Core. I am also currently engaged in writing math problems with two students here in Richland County School District One. I love working with different students and seeing how much they improve.

Being an Elementary Education major. I have direct experience with children through practicums. During my practicum experience I have helped a number of children with different abilities with reading and the comprehension of text. I do this by having them read phrases over and over again, and describing what each word in is in the sentence. I also have them to discuss the text after they read it, to make sure they understand what they are reading.

Handwriting can be a difficult subject, because many factors can influence a child's handwriting. Such as what type of pencil they have, the size of a child, and the type of paper they use. I can help your child develop the fine motor skills needed for writing neatly. Not only will I help you child with print, but also with cursive.I do this by showing them the correct way of doing it, and having them practice writing letters individually, and words and sentences.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. 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.
