Teacher with 5+ years experience offering Reading & Comprehension Tutor sessions in Gainesville, FL

Methodology

I base my approach on the knowledge I gained working for a world renown tutoring agency and my lessons are geared towards K-5th graders although the methods work for any age, grade or student.
I work with my students to become aware of their knowledge and use tangible tools to increase their attention to the subject and to simplify the concepts of math.
My techniques and method of instruction is to engage my student as well as use a reward system of beads in a glass jar. Beads go into the jar when the student participates/ responds and when the jar is filled they get a star on a card. 50 stars = a prize given/ mailed to them! It's soooo fun and gets my students really engaged!! If this method isn't your child's speed I have other tricks up my sleeve!! ;) however, it's not failed me yet!

Background

Christina's resume

Thank you for taking the time to read about me! I am a tutor with over 5 years experience both in the classroom and one-on-one sessions. I have gained much of my experience working at Lindamood-Bell as a tutor where I specialized in many of their distinguished, world renowned programs. Reading and spelling, visualization and verbalizing (for comprehension and thinking) as well as math (computation and problem solving).
My time as a lead teacher at Bright Horizons taught me how to create lesson plans and teach a group of students. I worked with many students who were all at their own level and had their own unique needs. It’s so exciting to hear my students' excitement. As their grades climb, so does their confidence!!
I am currently 2 classes away from my degree in elementary education and have achieved honors and been on the dean's list for 2 years in a row. Aside from tutoring and teaching, I volunteer at public schools and coach an after school program for girl empowerment.
Thank you again for taking the time to check out my profile!! I look forward to empowering your child and helping them discover their excitement to learn and grow this year!!

Sincerely,
Miss Chrissy K
