Teacher and Parent Available To Tutor Over The Summer
As a classroom teacher in a NYC public high school, I spend most of my day during the school year teaching classes of 25-33 students, but I also have periods where I work with students in smaller numbers, and I have tutored regents test prep after school. Working one-on-one with a student is preferable, and almost "easy" in comparison to what I normally do. I have tutored many students directly, primarily in English but also in algebra and music (playing guitar). As an English Language Arts tutor, I know what the students are expected to know at various ages and how to make the material more engaging and interesting to them.
As a tutor, I would provide materials that will bring the subject matter to life with multimedia, real-life examples, and after speaking with the young person, basing instruction on their interests and needs. I have many hobbies that help me connect with students, such as music, sports, technology, games, movies/TV, and since I have spent so much time teaching adolescents, I can see things from their perspective, especially when I talk with a young person one-on one.
I feel that I provide a lot of value as a tutor.
