I previously went to a college in PA where I was involved with an after school mentor program tutoring kids in the age range of 7-13 years old. The program was for very underprivileged children in the community, therefore a large portion of the students either had learning disabilities or their reading levels were extremely low for their age. Also I just recently taught at a reading camp for underprivileged children (ages 8-12) in Buffalo. Some of these children also had learning challenges and definitely had behavioral issues. I am extremely patient and always determined to see growth in students. Sometimes kids just need a little push! Also I can't stress enough how so many kids benefit greatly from one on one learning.
