About Serita


Bio

I have a love and passion for teaching and watching other people learn and reach their potential since graduating from NIU. Traveling to different countries and having the pleasure and opportunity to watch others grow in different areas of education has given me more of a drive to see people in the United States grow in their love of learning.

I have 8 years of experience tutoring in small groups as well as one-on-one, and I have worked with children and adults from different backgrounds...

I have a love and passion for teaching and watching other people learn and reach their potential since graduating from NIU. Traveling to different countries and having the pleasure and opportunity to watch others grow in different areas of education has given me more of a drive to see people in the United States grow in their love of learning.

I have 8 years of experience tutoring in small groups as well as one-on-one, and I have worked with children and adults from different backgrounds as well as different levels in their learning. It is important to me to plan and assess my student's progress so that I can know how best to help them and teach according to what they need. I specialize in phonics, reading, and teaching English as a second language.

I don't expect perfection, but I am passionate about students working hard and giving their best effort. I will do my best to teach with all that I am a give 100% to seeing students learn in the best possible way. I like to keep my students on their toes, highlighting their strengths and challenging them in their weaknesses without overwhelming them. I will assign homework after every lesson and be sure to go over it them during their next lesson. We will have periodic assessments and I will provide quarterly progress reports as well.

I will be as flexible as I can with schedules. I have a 12 hour cancellation policy and will definitely do all that I can to make up lessons that are missed. At the moment, I prefer lessons online due to traveling pretty consistently. However, lessons in person will become more available in 4 months.

I have had eight years of training and teaching in phonics. I have worked with many children in this area and have had to come up with many creative ideas to help students understand concepts such as blends, sight words and irregular vowel pairings.

Please contact me if you are interested in improving your reading or English speaking skills. I am looking forward to hearing from you!

Phonics

I have had the opportunity to work in education for eight years. During that time I have taught one to one instruction almost exclusively in phonetics in order to prepare children for reading. I tutored using a curriculum called Success for All (SFA) and in this program I assessed students in order to make a lesson plan designed to fit each student's specific needs. These assessments occurred every quarter of the school year. Once that was established, it determined the level of reading that the student was at, and using SFA materials, I was able to provide targeted and specific instruction. This included phonics picture cards, reading books according to their level and specific/current phonetic sound, and fun activities that continued to emphasize what each student was working on.
