Engineer/Chemistry/Anatomy/ESL Teacher For Tutor!
Nothing is more rewarding than helping a student realize their potential and coaching them to reach their goals. For the past 8 years, I have consistently been in a mentoring/teaching/coaching role through volunteer and paid opportunities. Currently, I am a Chemistry, Anatomy, and ESOL Teacher. In addition to those topics, I also tutor in all levels of math!
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
1. I always take time to get to know my students, their interests, and their goals (both life and academic).
2. The next step is understanding where students are with regard to the subject matter. Once that is assessed, we can identify strengths and weaknesses in order to appropriately plan to cover pertinent material.
3. I incorporate research-based instructional strategies with engaging activities to address the desired topics.
4. During instruction and after each session, I assess students' progress. Based on their progress, I can adjust the next lesson and/or suggest practice to do outside of tutoring sessions.
