Gabriele

Lake Forest College junior, living in Downtown Chicago for a off-campus semester. I am a Communication major, with a minor in Entrepreneurship. I am passionate about working with students because I think it is extremely important to build their confidence in subjects that they are not yet comfortable with, and also those that they are. I have worked with children for over five years, and have learned that the most important factor in their growth is knowing that the only way to get better at anything is through trial and error, as well as unwavering dedication.

I am extremely passionate about all areas of learning because I feel they are the building block areas that will help for success in higher grade levels.
My teaching philosophy is centered around positivity in the sense that constant encouragement is needed in every learning environment. Instead of dwelling on mistakes, encourage trial and error, because above all else a mistake still shows effort.

What is your teaching philosophy?

My teaching philosophy is centered around positivity in the sense that constant encouragement is needed in every learning environment. Instead of dwelling on mistakes, encourage trial and error, because above all else a mistake still shows effort.

What might you do in a typical first session with a student?

A typical first session should include time spent getting to know one another. Anything from outside interests to subjects that the student feels confident in, and those that they need extra help in. From there, it is essential to develop a learning plan and set achievable goals that the student can reflect on as time goes on.

How can you help a student become an independent learner?

A student will become an independent learner through confidence gained in sessions. By showing that work is not as scary as it might seem, the student will start to feel that they can achieve more on their own.

How would you help a student stay motivated?

I would help a student to stay motivated by encouraging them that everyone, children and adults alike, has work that they may not always want to do, but by setting goal lists and incorporating a reward system, checking things off can actually be fun.
