"I understand the need to select an appropriate teaching style based on the student's needs and style of learning. Elementary school age children need a tutoring session structured differently from those in middle or high school, and educating adult students requires yet another structure. I help all students get the most from their tutoring sessions through various teaching styles that might include lecture, demonstration, hands-on, collaboration, and independent study. Easy, effective and enjoyable e-learning is an important component. When practical, I use manipulative activities as well as laptops and iPads to help students learn. I believe that the elementary education is the building block for all higher learning. When working with middle and high school age groups, my approach will vary somewhat. I still make learning fun, but focus is on setting goals and achieving academic success that will serve them well in adulthood. In many subject areas, I find it beneficial to generate discussion questions that stimulate literary conversation. I always teach study skills to this age group regardless of the subject we are focusing on. I get clear results and my students always increase their performance level and grades. My degree is in Psychology with a minor in Management, and a 3.8 GPA. I am an excellent adult education instructor as well and served as training manager in the military. I can develop worksheets and practice quizzes to help students prepare for exams. I edited, published and owned a travel magazine for three years, and as a travel consultant who has traveled the world, I have a vast array of knowledge and experience to share with students to aid in learning. I can teach and assist students, adults and children, in almost any subject area. I am willing to work with parents and educators alike to meet goals. Please call me and we'll be on our way to accomplishing your goals." less...
