"Hello, my name is Joel. I am from Peoria Heights, IL. I have been a substitute school teacher ever since the Spring of 2003. Although I have never held a tutoring position, I have substitute-taught in many classes and feel that I have acquired significant experience in the classroom.

My experience in substitute teaching has been mainly at the elementary level including the following subject areas: English, Reading, Phonics, Math, Science, Social Studies, Vocabulary, and Geography.

If for example, I was going to tutor vocabulary studies to students, then I would use the approach of getting more familiar with the dictionary and how to use it wisely. When a student can master breaking down words into syllables and then figure out what one means, then they can develop a better understanding at defining words. This the approach that I would take in assisting students in improving their vocabulary skills. If I was to tutor math, then I would take the approach in solving problems step-by-step and always to use formulas. I believe that it will provide the student with a better understanding in solving math problems. When it relates to reading and comprehending, I have always found it beneficial to highlight all important ideas and terms as I read. This gave me a better understanding of what I was reading and helped myself comprehend better. I would definitely use this approach if I was tutoring students in reading/comprehension. This approach would be beneficial with Social Studies and Science too.

I do believe that my several years of substitute school teaching experience would make me a valuable asset in the lives of students in need of tutoring assistance. I have always had an interest in tutoring along with substitute school teaching, but I have never had the opportunity to pursue individual tutoring. I am very flexible on hours that I would be available to tutor. Flexibility is very important to students as well so my main goal is to work around the students schedule.

My goal is not only to be succes" less...
