Helping students learn new concepts, review past lessons, boost their grades, challenge their brains, build confidence, or simply get ahead is what I love. Tutoring provides a one on one opportunity outside of the classroom to do so.
I provide tutoring for students in elementary school (K-5th grade) and middle school (6-8th grade) in math, science, reading, and language arts. Tutoring can improve grades, be used as enrichment over the summer, or provide an avenue to get ahead. Tutoring can also help prepare for harder or higher level classes and reinforce study skills. Elementary and middle school is the perfect time for students to start learning how to become organized in their classes and homework, a practice that can be enhanced through tutoring. Most importantly, tutoring can build confidence for students to be successful in the classroom.
I currently work as a paraprofessional educator at a middle school. It did not take long for me to realize that leaving my position as an interior designer to enter the field of education was the best decision Ive made so far! I thoroughly find great joy and satisfaction in helping students learn and overcome challenges in the classroom. Now that summer is upon us, tutoring seems like the perfect way to help students stay in a routine and get the extra support needed. I feel as though I have so much more to give as an educator than I can ever give in the field of sales and design.
I look forward to working with your student!
