I earned my Bachelors Degree from Florida International University, and I am currently working on my Masters Degree at Davenport University. I feel that my experiences of temporary teaching and tutoring have been both personally satisfying and beneficial to the children I worked with. I have enjoyed three periods of teaching.
My first opportunity to teach was provided by the Miami-Dade County Public Schools, which was one of the necessary ways to get the best experience by teaching language arts, writing, reading comprehension, mathematics, science, geography, social studies or history. Moreover, I was able to work with various levels and a diversity of students. I enjoyed working with students from pre-K to fifth grades there and was interested in the teachers technique of teaching young children.
I had the opportunity at my second position at One on One Learning, to instruct my own group of pupils based on their weak subjects in the comfort of their homes. I was allowed to devise my own teaching methods and I received great satisfaction when the children showed understanding and progress.
My third experience was provided by Sylvan Learning Center when I worked as a tutor by focusing on standard core subjects such as mathematics and reading. I enjoyed the opportunity to teach older children as the lessons were more tightly structured so that a better understanding could be attained.
I am now certain that it is the education of the elementary age group that I would like to specialize in as at this level I would be able to teach mathematics to the depth at which it becomes the most interesting and enlightening. I would hope to give my students a good foundation since I feel that nearly every profession uses some form of mathematics.
