About Toneshia

Who says that learning has to be boring?

I feel that learning should be something you enjoy. I try to use different ways to make learning fun as well as easy. Hands-on projects have helped me understand anything I need to learn. Using what I learn in real life helps to understand the subject. Sometimes I may use music and rhyme for remembering information. I feel that anything fun can be used in education.

When I was in school I was blessed to have teachers who really wanted to help their students. They inspired me to become a teacher as well. When a subject is too hard to take in I believe in breaking it down into little pieces, that way it is easier to understand. Then once the pieces are comprehended we can begin to put them all together.

This type of teaching I've done at the Center for Autism. Many students from all levels of the spectrum function well by using this technique. Using plain terms and language helps with understanding as well. Applying the subject to everyday life helps the students relate to what they are studying. Music, pictures, worksheets, I use them all to simplified and explain whatever it is that the student is having trouble with. Granted I'm not perfect, but I will work hard along with the student as well.
Education is key to almost everything in our world. However learning doesn't stop and start in the classroom. Life itself is an ongoing learning experience. Teachers, tutors and educators must do everything we can to give our students the tools to help become the adults they were meant to be.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have had nine years of teaching younger children. I have taught dance to our youth group in and outside of my church. I am currently in working on my Master of Eduction and my teaching license. During the course of my studies I have done two months of student teaching. This allows my to observe a classroom environment. It also gives me an opportunity to teach a lessons plans I created myself.
Also I am currently working at New Horizon Center for Autism. Its a school for Autistic children come and learn. It helps students with this disorder on all level of the spectrum. Those are higher on the spectrum are placed in an inclusive classroom ( special ed and general ed combined). Working with children of all abilities have been a joy and struggle in my life.
