Certified Math Tutor in Shawnee Mission, KS

Hi, I'm Leah! I am a teacher with five years of teaching experience in the lower elementary grades. I am passionate about teaching students and helping them to meet their learning goals. My favorite area to teach is phonics, because I think it is the most important part of reading and can help a young student in so many academic areas. ... I believe each student is unique, similar to a crayon in a full box of crayons. Each crayon may have the same overall function - to provide color to a page. However, each crayon may be used to color a different object. Green can be used for grass, blue can be used for the sky, etc. An artist needs to find a place for each colored crayon. The same holds true for a teacher. I feel it is my job to discover the unique talents and interests in each of my students, and bring out their "true colors."

I also spent hours and hours tutoring others over the Internet. For me teaching is an adventure. Everyone has different perspectives, and when you are teaching you have to be able to both provide a new perspective and to understand (so as to enlarge) someone else's perspective....
