I struggled with basic and rudimentary Math and eventually evolved a love for learning and teaching the basics before reaching middle school.
I love the growth mindset of teaching, not the fixed mindset. Students are so much more than their present reflections. All children have untapped potential, and it is my job to accompany them as they accumulate the experience and practice they require to grow and evolve.
I've worked with mixed class, handled private sessions, absolutely adore struggling learners, and hope to attain a certificate in Education Specialist, which is the Masters +30 certificate.
I recently acquired my Masters from GCU in 2019. I've substitute taught since 2003 and love the position. I need the practice to keep my skills current. My bachelor's degree was in Accounting.
Tutoring appeals to my innate desire to produce and give back yto the world that initially gave to me. I hope to establish a legacy that my late mother and grandfather began as teachers.

I try to find common ground with them to assess their level of acumen and the background training they received prior to our encounter. I like to talk 'to' recipients, not 'at' them. It's not wise to talk over recipients' heads. If you can't understand what I'm saying, then I flounder, and the acolyte does too.
I spent one-third of my student-teaching interval during my Masters degree program working with the below average performers in 5th and sixth grades. I've even worked privately with people who were stuck trying to comprehend basics. I am aware that a lot has changed( Common Core), but I try to compare trajectories to find common ground. Proper communication is the key to achieving accord and mastery. I also love to apply scaffolding where I allow some exploration and independent operation once the pupil starts to comprehend. Learning is both dependent and interdependent. I am only there to guide and act as a reference point.
