Award-Winning Phonics Tutors in Medical Park, NY
Nina ...I'm also available for SAT preparation, essay editing and ESL. I make sure to foster a comfortable and secure environment that specifically suits each student. My favorite part of tutoring is the inevitable discovery of what, exactly, is presenting an obstacle to my student and then finding a way to overcome it.... My teaching philosophy is that every student has the capacity to learn and to excel. It's all about figuring out what works and what doesn't for each individual, because a fresh approach is always necessary!

Jennifer ...history all grade levels and some SAT prep. My classroom experiences range from Special Education classrooms with children aged 5-15, Social Studies grades 5 - 12 and Reading teacher grades K-8. My hobbies are reading, knitting and lots of sports! Love to enjoy my children's sporting events and being outside in nice weather!... By writing and conducting stimulating lessons, teachers can foster a love for learning in their students. Relating subject matter to real life situations will focus students' attention on task and inspire a quest for additional knowledge. It is imperative to stress to students that life is a continuing learning process. Parental involvement is important in shaping a child's attitude toward learning. Education is more than just teaching; it is loving, caring, showing, communicating, and compassion. By implementing these parts into an education program, a teacher can help children dream and reach for those dreams.
