Affordable English Language Arts/ELL tutoring from a retired teacher in north Austin TX

Methodology

I believe that every child learns at a different rate. What works for one child may not be a good approach for another. Any effective classroom teaching and learning is based on previous mastery of concepts-scaffolding techniques & learning. As teachers, we need to follow culturally responsive guidelines in lesson planning.
With actual teaching in person or online, it is important to develop prior knowledge, content vocabulary in the context before getting into the content. Reading needs a lot of practice from guided reading, to a small group conversations, and then to an independent practice stage. I believe reading and writing go hand in
hand. What students read, they should be able to apply/transfer learning to the written concepts during the writing process.
Providing engaged activities and instruction, motivates student learning. With assessments after every nine weeks, I could see their vocabulary and reading comprehension improve. The diverse topics empowered students’ conversations, which in return contributed to better speaking and listening skills.

Background

I have retired after a successful teaching career of 22 years. I have taught 4th/5th-grades all subjects; and language arts-middle school. My favorite areas to teach are reading and writing using different strategies for effective teaching/learning practices. I have been fortunate enough to have different cultural experiences through my travels abroad, and learning about other communities of the world.
