I have worked as a full time teacher as well as a substitute teacher for over 20 years and have taught every grade level from K-6 and have taught vocabulary as part of the daily curriculum. I will teach students to use context clues to figure out unfamiliar words and also use Wordly Wise and Daily Academic Vocabulary to help students increase their vocabulary. I have taught grammar.

...I have several activities that I can incorporate to complement a student's current homework and tests. I love to play games that will build vocabulary and confidence in my students. I have worked with all ages and skill levels and I look for ways to include the student's interests and objectives in each lesson.

...In high school, I enjoyed assisting friends in humanities and math/science subjects. I love helping my classmates and friends achieve a solid grasp of a particular subject and gaining greater confidence in their study, test-taking, and general academic abilities. I am skilled at note-taking, brainstorming, proofreading, and writing papers.

...So, I always keep in mind the ultimate goal of education when tutoring and relate the lesson to its usefulness for the student's future, adding a reason to excel in this subject. I started tutoring years ago during my high school and university years. I tutored young students from elementary, middle school and high school in maths, with outstanding success and great moments!
