I know the purpose of education and instruction is to develop students, to make them better people, better thinkers and better decision-makers. New students come to us for a year or maybe two – a mere snapshot of their educational experience. However, in that time I have the opportunity to make lasting impacts on their lives. I accept this responsibility and employ strategies that make the most of this time with my students. One of my strategies is teaching to the whole student. I make time to build a rapport by learning about students’ lives and interests. I always express a genuine concern for my students and use that rapport to construct a positive learning environment. It seems small but I need my students to feel appreciated and respected, valued and smart! I set high expectations for students and encourage them to reach their full potential. I look for ways to engage students in activities that appeal to their multiple intelligences and make them excited about learning. It is important to me as a teacher that I also value their input. There must be an opportunity to take ownership of their learning. Not only does this allow my students to demonstrate self-efficacy but they can continuously reflect on how they can improve. I understand that in my role as their teacher I must always be looking for ways to improve and hone the techniques I use to improve student learning. No two students learn in the same way. It is my job as a professional to engage that student's spark of curiosity which will lead to a lifelong love of learning!

What types of materials do you typically use during a tutoring session?

I use the latest AP lesson plans to provide practice for the exams. As a long term teacher I have many professional sources that I use to prepare my students for the rigors of these tests. I prefer to use literature and prose that my students have already read. The student is immediately familiar with the content and this provides a way to use concrete analysis techniques, build multiple choice proficiency and instill excellent writing skills for high-scoring essays.

What strategies have you found to be most successful when you start to work with a student?

Every student needs to create short term goals and long term goals. The student's short term objectives are addressed immediately. This includes having the student submit previous written work to me to determine the student's strengths and build upon them. Each person has a learning style that I look for that is crucial to success. A writing assignment represents the way a student thinks and how he/she communicates and comprehends complex ideas. Knowing a student's strengths increases the ability to succeed and meet goals quickly.

How do you adapt your tutoring to the student's needs?

My students tend to make quick progress in understanding what they must do to meet their goals. I have the ability to mold my instruction to the needs of each unique student. As the student becomes more adept at using the strategies introduced and practiced, additional skill-building encourages the student to stretch and grow toward accomplishing the next goal. My job is to adapt the concepts and abilities to the student and provide increasingly challenging material.
