Future English teacher with tons of classroom experience! Let me help you write the perfect paper!

Methodology

My teaching methodology involves creating opportunities for interacting, experiential, student centered learning with a focus on fostering a growth mindset. I find it extremely valuable to have a trusting relationship with students and use their past experiences to help guide their learning

Background

I am an education student specializing in English Language Arts and Social Sciences. I have been in classrooms for the past 3 years, worked as a private tutor, and taught at a summer camp! I have the added bonus of understanding assessment through the eyes of a student and a teacher, and have worked with a diverse range of students!

I have worked with Maria in the classroom and seen the way she interacts with students. Students love her and walk away with a greater understanding than they had before. She is patient and knowledgeable and I recommend her to anyone who needs English help
