I named my business "Creative Success" for a reason! It is because I teach using very creative methods and materials. Oftentimes, when a student has been struggling with a subject or specific topic area being taught in a more "traditional" manner in school, success is achieved when the student is "connected with" by the tutor/teacher. I find this occurs through a more individualized approach, focused on the student's unique needs and interests.
I love working with children and adolescents! I enjoy working with all different types of learners. I have a great deal of experience working with a wide range of students - Preschool into Highschool; in a great many subject areas - ELA, Math, Social Studies/Science, Art/Music, and Study Skills; and with a wide range of Learning Abilities, including many Disabilities (ADD/ADHD, Autism, Dyslexia, Anxiety Disorders, etc), as well as Gifted Students. I also love the challenge of developing lessons for so many different learning experiences.
Colette has been tutoring our daughter in spelling for the past two months and it has been an excellent experience!
Great Approach Colette is always finding new ways to teach my son math concepts through games. He really gets to understand math better because she tailors the lessons to his learning style.
Very helpful! My son's first lesson with Colette was great! He learned a lot in the short time spent with Colette and felt very comfortable working with her. A+++
Building a rapport is very important in the beginning. In order to work together well, we need to get to know each other well! So, I begin there; chatting, playing games, discussing the student's needs and interests, etc.
My teaching approach is to focus on each student's individual learning style, utilizing various methods amd materials, appropriate to each student's unique needs and interests. My students usually find my sessions to be both productive and creative, as well as fun!
