Profile

I am a third grade teacher in Chester County, S.C. I have tutored both regular and special education students in kindergarten through sixth grade prior to teaching third grade. I love tutoring because you have a one-on-one experience and a chance to make learning enjoyable for the student. I, myself, love games and thinking “outside the box”, so coming up with a new game or activity to practice a concept, is a challenge I enjoy. Making learning fun is the best way to get students interested and engaged in their own education.
As a tutor, I spend a good deal of my free time preparing and looking for extra materials to ensure that my students are getting the most out of their sessions. When one student was struggling with multiplication facts and had no interest in learning them, I created a game that would give him the practice he needed but would be enjoyable at the same time. He liked the game so much, we played at the end of every session and after 15 sessions he had memorized more than half and could easily figure out the remaining ones. He proudly showed his teacher all of his "tricks" and rattled off those he memorized.
