Professional Elementary English, Phonics, Reading and Math One on One and Group Tutoring In Pensacola, FL Vicinity

Methodology

I am a Elementary Education major who will graduate in a year from the University of West Florida. I use one on one and group tutoring to teach students. Students learn via one on one tutoring and small groups use the Jigsaw method and small group collaboration to learn concepts. I believe that all students have the right to learn and should be given every opportunity to thrive inside and outside of the classroom environment. I meet after each lesson with parents and guardians to discuss strengths, weaknesses and achievements of each students. I have assisted in several elementary and intermediate school classrooms as a teacher's assistant and as a Reading Interventionist Specialist. My degree will allow me to teach elementary grades along with kindergarten. I use worksheets, videos, books, poems, the Tiner method, hands on materials and other instructional materials to promote effective learning and I adhere to statewide Benchmarks and IEPs. Every attempt is made to give students a visual and hands on idea of concepts that are being taught during the lesson.

Background

I have been tutoring for approximately four years. I have taught students individually for the Escambia County, Florida school system and I have taught groups of students or the Santa Rosa County school system. Some students required tutoring to improve grades on standardized tests. Other students required tutoring in Phonics using the Tiner method. Students significantly improved grades on post tests and improved confidence and self esteem also. I have assisted in elementary and intermediate school classrooms as a teacher's assistant. I helped these students with Reading, however, I have assisted students in other subjects such as Math and Science.
