...Unfortunately, little specific instruction in these areas is given in school, and students are left to devise solutions on their own, with little or no guidance. Some are able to do so successfully on their own, but many need outside help. My role as a tutor is to analyze where the breakdown is occurring, and customize a plan that meets the individual needs of the student.

...It is fun for me and I try to show my enthusiasm and enjoyment whenever I teach any subject in Math. As a substitute teacher in two different school districts, there are a large number of jobs that are able to be chosen in a given time period. Since I know Reading is one of the most important, if not the most important, subjects to learn and to teach, I often take a job as a Reading teacher.
