I have a deep understanding of elementary math, as I have been teaching for 29 years. Not only do I know my math, I also have a "tool kit" of resources and ideas that will inspire my students. I can also help students with other subjests, as I have taught all subjects in elementary.
I was the elementary teacher of the year for my district, and I am always tweeking my teaching style.My teaching style is to utilize games and online resources to help reach my students.
I love when I see the students finally "get it." I also love coming out up with different strategies to tackle a problem. I want my students to be confident and love learning.
Denise is an amazing tutor! She helped my 8 year old advance in her math. She used a lot of hands on learning activities. We saw a difference in her testing score and math skills. She taught my daughter difference techniques to solve problems. Best part was that my daughter looked forward to seeing Denise every week she made tutoring time fun.
She is very good.
My typical process for meeting a new studetn is getting to know the whole child. We do a get to know you activity, where thye find out some fun things about me too. I also do a quick pre-test that lets me know where the student is and I buld my tutoring sessions based on that informaiton.
I have an under graduate degree in elementary educaiton and a Masters Degree in Reading. I have been fortunate enough to participate in countless hours of professionl development provided by my district. I also have taken many online classes on topics ranging from math number talkis to motivatin students
I came from a family of teachers. Three generations of teachers passed on the love of teaching, and dedication to a very tough but fulfilling profession.
My school district is in an urban setting. I have taught beginner readers to students that are 3-4 grade levels above.
