ExperienceI am currently working in a Catholic School as a Teacher Assistant in a mixed classroom of three and four year old children. I have many years experience working with children from the ages of six weeks to six in an educational capacity. As of January, I volunteered at the school I worked at in a program known as Homework Helpers. Once or twice I week I would help students with their homework. I worked with a student in 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade.
I am also working on teacher certification. I am in an accelerated teacher certification program with the College of Notre Dame of Maryland. I am working towards Elementary Special Education certification. My goal is to become a Kindergarten teacher.
I love working with children and I also find it rewarding to help a child learn as well as succeed in school. I have really enjoyed doing the Homework Help program this school year. I decided that the best way to get an extra income is to do what I love to do teach/tutor elementary school students. I also have a Bachelor's Degree in Psychology so I could even tutor someone who is having trouble with their Psychology class.
My technique, is to let the student try to do their work by themselves and if help is needed I will provide guidance and suggestions. I have tutored students in reading, English, science, social studies, and vocabulary. As far as tutoring Math, I am comfortable doing so with a child who is in any grade from Kindergarten to third grade.
I look forward to be able to provide a wonderful tutoring experience that is rewarding and will help the child learn how to enjoy learning.
HobbiesGeneaology, Reading, journal writing, photography.
