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.
I enjoy working with students with learning challenges. Students with ADD and ADHD enjoy hands on learning. They enjoy moving, clapping etc. during the learning process. ADD and ADHD students benefit greatly from repetition. The teacher/tutor must informally assess the learning to ensure that students understand what is being taught.
I have a twenty four year old ADHD son. Through trial and error, I discovered that he is a visual/kinesthetic learner. He can not be overwhelmed by a large amount of information. By doing so, he becomes disengaged.
As a child, I gave him small bites of information. After doing so, I reviewed the learning. I also allowed him to take short breaks during the learning process.
ADHD/ADD students must have consistency in the classroom and predictability. As a principal, I visited my resource classrooms and taught classroom management, routines etc. I also taught reading through games. I demonstrated reading for enjoyment and we talked about story characters, tone, plot etc. We had a great time learning!
Common core objectives are a bit more detailed than traditional skills. It invites students to think at a higher level. Common core objectives also allows students to integrate technology, writing etc. The goal is to level the learning process throughout a state etc. Common cores allows our students to compete with children throughout the country.
I have a Bachelors Degree in Early Childhood/ Elementary Education. My certification is in Early Childhood Education. During my thirty years as an educator, I taught grades: K, 1st, 2nd and Reading. I had the opportunity to teach many reluctant learners. My goal was to make learning fun!
I have been trained in the phonics program; Sing, Say and Spell. As a kindergarten teacher, I taught phonics to my students. They enjoyed learning phonics through this program, because it was very interactive.
The Four Blocks Approach to learning is an approach to teaching phonics. I took the course during my tenure as a second grade teacher. The program allow students to develop phonemic awareness by blending sounds.
Unlike some educators, my belief is that we must teach students how to study. Giving students many questions is not effective, unless the student has been taught the activation of other modalities. When teaching study skills, demonstrate using several modalities. It is important that the learning is paced, and all students must be engaged in the process. Hold all students that appear to be disengaged, by revisiting the lesson. While implementing study skills, have students to use ; Who, What, When, How, Why to finalize and review the kearning.
