I like to structure a lesson by going over information, either through texts or other media. I want to find out what knowledge and experiences a student may have with a certain subject. From there, I determine how much more direct teaching is required. I prefer to move into activities and independent research/work that is age and developmentally appropriate for the student. Younger and/or below grade level students require more direct instruction in contrast to a high school or gifted student.
I have a Doctorate in Education (Instructional Technology), a MEd Early Childhood Education and a BA in Psychology/Sociology. I am certified to teach in 3 states (VA,FL, MO): K-3, Family Consumer Science, and ESOL endorsed in FL. I instructed in the military for over 10 years, and was classroom teacher for 2. I play the violin and have also given private string lessons to both children and adults.
Cancellation policy: Fee will be paid for the session if cancelled within 24 hrs of scheduled time. Prior to that, the tutor and student can either reschedule a time prior to the next scheduled session or receive a credit for the next cycle (preferred monthly). This is waived in cases of emergencies.
Scheduling: Block scheduling is preferred, at least monthly. If not, the next session will be scheduled during the current session in order to secure the same day/time slot for the following week(s). Not doing so cannot guarantee availability.
Joan will make a great addition to any training or teaching organization/environment.
