"Every child can learn but not on the same day or in the same way". This statement is one I heard early on in my teaching career and have adopted to my teaching philosophy. All children have the ability to learn and be academically successful but need the right support and guidance to do so. Some children might understand a concept immediately while others need additional practice. Children learn best with methods that cater to their interests and learning styles. As an educator, it is my job to provide students with the tools for success. For some, this could be kinesthetic activities and for others it may mean provide extra opportunities of practice. Nevertheless, it is important to take time to understand a student, their background, and the way in which they learn best in order to achieve the highest level of academic achievement.
I graduated from the University of Michigan with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology and Communication. Upon graduation I accepted a teaching position in Detroit through Teach For America, an alternative teaching program. I am a certified K-8 teacher with a language arts endorsement. Additionally, I have a great deal of one-on-one tutoring experiences, working with elementary students of all levels. While I tutor a wide variety of subjects, I am most passionate about teaching elementary and middle school students focusing on reading and mathematics fundamentals.
