"I have successfully taught students in preschools, elementary schools, middle schools, high schools, and college. When teaching students with learning problems, I learned to be tolerant, flexible, and patient. I have a goal and Lesson plans for each tutoring session. However, my flexibility allows me to veer from, or skip sections of the plans if a student acts tired, bored, or frustrated. Many students have short attention spans. For that reason, my sessions are broken into short periods with lots of variety. Some students learn best by visualizing a concept. Others learn by listening. Many learn by doing: building a rectangle, rearranging phrases and words to make a sentence, using counters to prove an answer. I believe that I can teach anything, and I believe that I can teach anyone who wants to learn. I've actually taught many who didn't know that they wanted to learn. I enjoy using my creativity in teaching. I believe in rewards and reinforcement,(i.e I'll only mark the correct answers on your test!). All people have things that are rewarding to them. For some, a smile and a compliment do the job. Others may want stickers, stars,...chocolate. I discover the things that are rewarding to each student, because not all will continue to work and learn for the sake of learning! I love teaching, and I love learning. The best teachers are continuously learning; and one of the best ways of learning is to teach. When a tutor and student are working as a team, there's a bond that eventually forms a friendship. I count many former-students as my friends." less...

Education and Qualifications

school: University of Michigan
certified: Connie Hagman is a certified tutor

Since graduating from the University of Michigan, I've taken courses in business, statistics, education, accounting, Spanish, geometry and algebra. I have taught dozens of Pre-K students to read, do basic math, and write. Having taught students age 2 1/2 to 88, I'm comfortable with tutoring anyone with a desire to learn. I did earn the math and science awards in high school and love math. Recently I've tutored geometry, algebra and college algebra, as well as done test preparation for the ACT, SAT, and GMAT. In addition to teaching, I've been a professional writer, directed a software development team, served as a director of marketing, and been a professional photographer. I do have extensive training in the use of manual camera controls, control of light, and Photoshop.
