I received both my BA in Natural Sciences and my PhD in Biochemistry from the University of Cambridge, UK. For every student I tutor I devise an individualized learning program which is designed to meet the student's specific needs and learning style. I am a full-time tutor and I devote a lot of energy into ensuring every student I teach reaches their full potential.
I adapt instruction based upon curriculum-based assessments and address individual educational plans and goals to meet the needs of my students. I provide all students with a positive learning experience through verbal praise and encouragement in order to enhance self confidence in their abilities to learn new skills.

My teaching methods will be based in part on diagnosis, in part via assessement of how well children can learn, strong and weak areas, teaching study skills and building on current strengths. Teaching methods are based around a variety of modalities (including Kinesthetic) and are solultion focused and aimed on positive growth.
I shape my teaching methods to each child, since every child is unique! I tutor elementary to middle school students, specializing in teaching ADHD and Autistic kids. I use techniques such as engaging in the child's interests and highlighting their strengths in order to improve the areas they need help in.
I am a college student who is a special educations Para professional ,and I am trained in helping students of all kinds . I'm working on becoming a special education teacher I am also working in becoming a ESLand ABE .
We will work together as a team, learning more every day. Interaction and participation is a must. This theme or topic is one of my favorites in the Education Area, this means that we can have very interesting lessons through research, discussion, etc.
I teach each class with a multi-disciplinary and a multi-sensory approach to ensure all learners and learning types receive an appropriate lesson for maximum understanding. I have a structured approach in my lessons while maintaining the flexibility to capture unplanned teaching moments.
My teaching style demonstrates dedication to fostering a positive learning environment and maximizing individual student performance. I teach according to the learning style of the student, and I will incorporate other teaching styles to expand on the style of learning.
My teaching methodology focuses on collaboration, strategic planning and intentional goal setting. Parents and students are my greatest partners in an academic relationship. When reviewing IEPs, school agendas and family goals, I want to ensure buy in from all stakeholders and develop tutoring strategies that promote life-long learning and skill replication for the student within the classroom.
My teaching method is highly adaptable, because no two kids learn the same way. This is especially true of kids with disabilities. I like to take time to get to know kids and figure out what helps them to best comprehend material, and then I adapt my style to best help them.
My teaching methodology is a collection of technology and hands-on activities. The core component depends on assessing where the student is and where he/she needs to grow and delivering the material in various methods that are engaging, age-appropriate, and challenging to be sure student growth and retention is achieved.
With autistic kids, I prefer to do lesson where they learn visually. I myself had a hard time understanding things unless they were shown to me visually. With reading there is a lot of that.
My teaching method is based on the Universal Design for Learning and that no one individual learns the same way. I try and help students discovers their strengths and help them work to their full potential.
The chances are your child is struggling not because they can't learn but because they are struggling to learn in a traditional learning environment. I try something a little out of the box, unconventional and get great results. I force your child to use their learning by questioning what they do know and fill in the gaps along the way.
My teaching method depends on my students. I always make sure to teach to the way they learn. Some students prefer to hear a lesson, others need to see it. I go above and beyond to make sure my students "get it" and encourage all questions and comments.
My teaching method is to building relationships with students. When you build relationships then everything else fall in place. I will use the first meeting to get to know the student and see where I can meet them on their level.
My teaching methodology is finding a strategy that works for the student and then teach that individual that strategy so that they can grasp the lesson that they need to learn. My lesson structure is based on the ability of the student and what he/she can learn based on a lesson plan that will be prepared for them.
I really like to get to know my students and find out what they like. I try to present lessons through things that interest them, if at all possible. Examples are music, movement, and art. I feel that the more a student is interested, the better they learn.
I am an experienced tutor, and I love to help the kids as much as I can, but I also encourage them to think and solve the problems on their own. This is how they gain confidence in themselves. I help them to read a passage, but then give them a chance to read on their own.
My teaching method is to make the lessons fun and to break things down as far as the student needs me to. I use an array of colors. If I can make a song to liven things up, I can and will.
My teaching method depends on the individual student. I am a certified learnining disabilities teacher consultant who is eligible to test your child to determine their disability if needed. I am a strong believer that the student should be comfortable in their environment for learning to evolve correctly. I am familiar and trained in multiple reading programs and math.
With my background in special education I base all my instruction on providing my students with exactly what they need to be successful. No two students are exactly alike or will learn exactly the same. I make sure that as a teacher and a tutor I mold my lessons to match the learning style and interests of my students so that they will be engaged and attend to my lessons.
All strategies will accommodate the whole student and not just the labeled special needs. Lessons will be tailored to each individual students depending on the needs. The first lesson will establish levels of where the student is and what modalities are best suited for students.
My teaching method is differential to specific needs of the child while challenging with moving a step up within each content area. Based on the on the needs of the children and input I get from parents I can make a lesson plan and provide essential materials to meet their needs. I provide a positive and nurturing environment with parent participation.

My teaching meathodology is that the student comes first and I make sure it is in a fun way to learn .
On the first day, I will most likely do an informal assessment with you to see where you are at and we will do a fun get to know you activity! Looking forward to meeting you in the very near future!
