Private tutor in Plainfield, NJ
Edinboro University of Pennsylvania - Bachelors, Art History
I have had experience both tutoring individual students and teaching in a classroom setting. I have taught in various science, math, social studies, and language arts subjects, as well as art. When I work with a student, the first thing I focus on is developing a rapport with the student. I listen to them patiently, and pay and pay attention to their needs and goals. We then develop trust, and tutoring works much better when there is trust between tutor and student. I have learned that starting with easier challenges, and increasing the difficulty level slowly helps students gain a belief in themselves and in their abilities. By making sure they continue to experience successes, I make sure that they continue to want to study. I don't use any one teaching method, as each student has different learning styles, so I take the time to find out what works best for each student, and adjust my techniques to each child individually. I may also use a couple of methods so that the lesson really sticks. I also take the student's interests into consideration, so I might make example problems that have to do with their hobbies or interests, like sports, video games, etc.
