...A pretest and post-tests is a great way to assess and track student achievement. Formative assessments that I have used in my classroom are Think-Pair-Share, Exit Tickets, Observations, Discussion, Task Orientated Project, and One-on-One Instruction. I would like to incorporate an interactive learning journal as another way to track student achievement.

...But "understanding" is my goal -- I don't focus on quick tricks, but on lasting and deep learning. I hold myself to a high standard and ask for feedback from students and parents. I never bill for a tutoring session if the student or parent is not completely satisfied.

...My educational psychology and human growth and development classes this past year addressed what works and what doesn't work in teaching children to read. In addition, as I've spent many years tutoring in reading, I have practical experience teaching phonics. My undergrad degree included primarily math and elementary education.

...I give each student the individual instruction that he or she needs to begin to feel comfortable with difficult concepts and problems. Given my level of experience, I also know that there may be more than one approach to solving math problems, and I will help each student find the one that is most appropriate for him or her. My success is truly measured by the success of my students.
