...Afterward, I double check with the student to make sure the concept is understood before moving on. I am very patient and willing to wait until the student understands the concepts, but I also understand that time is money, and won't spend an entire session on one question. I'm very personable and have tutored and mentored students for the better part of the past ten years.

...Reading instruction entails decoding, fluency, and comprehension. I use the Wilson Reading program to build decoding and fluency skills. I have participated in workshops, such as Lindamood Bell Visualizing and Verbalizing program, that gives Reading teachers a strong background for teaching students comprehension skills.

I like math. I have attended graduate school at UMass Boston, and completed by master's degree in mathematics education. I offer a very Socratic approach to teaching, that requires the student to demonstrate any prior knowledge of the subject, so I can zero in on what he or she needs most help with.

I've been teaching fourth grade for the past six years in a low income public school. The majority of the students in my school are English Language Learners and the students within my classroom each year range from a first grade to a middle school reading level. Therefore, I have experience teaching a wide range of abilities and have to differentiate my instruction each and every day.
