My primary aspiration and objective, as a tutor, is to provide each tutelage with the structure necessary to be an effective problem solver and autodidact for life.
To achieve this goal I modify my teaching style to not merely facilitate rote memorization instruction; but also provide the proper heuristic toolbox to solve problems in accordance with the individuals' particular comprehension challenge.
For example, Using Real World strategies across the curriculum not only informs a student, but teaches him/her where to find the solution and how to apply it. I have used this methodology throughout my teaching career.
I began teaching in a pre-school program called Get Set and before becoming a certified middle school teacher, majoring in Language Art and minoring in Social Studies, I spent several years as a recreation director. Each of my career choices helped me to employ Best Practices when it comes to tutoring.
I prefer teaching K-3 subjects because these are a child's fundamental years and I want to make sure, the students I instruct have a strong foundation in the basics.
I leave you with this:
My favorite subject to teach is Study Skills because the student who knows how to do a thing will always have a job; but the student who knows why a thing works will always be called boss.
