About this tutor

The curriculum followed was created from scratch by myself to help improve critical thinking skills and build a strong vocabulary. I have worked with children from various over Michigan and managed to get the students to show continued growth throughout months of tutoring. I love to see students grow in their studies and become curious about learning. I have been teaching for seven years in reading, elementary math and science.

I enjoyed seeing the students develop their skills set in a subject area and build more confidence to share their experiences with other around them.

FAQs


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

My typical process with new students is doing pretest drills to discover their strengths and things they need to improve on. Next, I discuss goals with the student and focus on those areas. 


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

I have an Bachelors in Science from Central a Michigan University. I worked with a school as a reading specialist and gain some new skills in Orton Gillingham training. Orton Gillingham is a program method that help students improve their reading abilities with multi sensory activities. I have also worked in a research laboratory which I help students develop their research and careers as future scientist. I am skilled in all areas of science and math.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A recent event I am fond by was increasing a students reading ability and confidence. The student was behind a grade level in reading and was stressing of being held back. We work together for three months and when she took the test in January, she got to grade level. She is now reading aloud at home, in school and always reading on her free time. She found reading exciting once she gain reading foundation skills and confidence.

The advice I would give the student is to ensure the tutor is the best fit by reading the profile, contact the tutor over the phone and discuss your goals, meet the tutor in person too see if they are passionate about the work and can see yourself meeting your goals with that tutor.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Some questions students should think through before asking for teachers guidance include:

1. What are my challenges

2. What goals do I want to meet in this subject?

3. How would I like to accomplish these goals?

4. What role would I want my teacher to play while helping me reach the goals?
