Hello my name is Katrina Clay, I am a 6th grade Language Arts middle school teacher. I been in the education field for about 10 years now. I also have a Masters in Human Development and Family Studies. When I first get to know my students, I gauge what they already know, so I don't waste time in my sessions. I Ask the student what they're good at and what they most enjoy about the subject I am working on. I always let him or her speak open-endedly about the subject and show off for you. It will make the student feel smart and validated while letting me figure out what material they've already mastered. I strongly believe that students are often quite aware of their weaknesses. They know what types of questions they consistently miss on quizzes, or what parts of class lectures make no sense to them. I let the student explain where they get lost, and make a list of those areas for my own reference. I also set goals by rate a chart that allows me and my student to assess how well he or she is doing both in my sessions and in class.
