What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I listen to the student, parents and (if they are willing) discuss student needs with student's current or past classroom teacher.  Based on varied experience, I find that it is best to assess in order to find student level and plan activities that help them improve their skills so they are successful in school. I pre-assess the areas that we discussed to find student level and see if there are gaps in learning. Then, I plan activities and skills that we will need to cover in order to boost students progress.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have certificates in Early Childhood and Elementary Education and have taught a variety of grade levels and subjects.
