Kate arrived a few minutes early and prepared with tagboard, colored markers and a variety of other materials to help my son grasp the information. I believe this visual approach will help him, a visual learner, more likely to retain the information.

It's a special skill to be able to teach - but to adapt those skills to the attention span of a 4 year old - is an entirely different level of expertise, one that Jane possesses. Jane has been teaching our son Italian for only a short period of time and we already have seen a distinct shift in his willingness to try to speak the language and incorporate it into his day to day. The day I walked into the door from work and he greeted me with a proud "Ciao!" I was so excited. We recommend her highly especially for working with children.

My student teaching was completed in a 1st grade and 4th grade classroom. In each environment, I created lessons to fit the needs of each student and his or her abilities. The teachers I learned from have been teaching 10+ years. I created units for science completely on my own, and took over the classroom instruction entirely for the last 3 weeks of each placement. ... More
I have been teaching English for 10 years at after school programs and tutoring one on one. Many students do not learn the same way. They have their own way of learning. Some students are more auditory and some may be more visual. The experience with students helps me to find new ways of teaching that can help students learn in a more efficient, practical and fun way.
I have had several experiences working with non native English speakers. I help with speaking, reading, writing and listening English. Grammar, pronunciation, vocabulary are many areas where help is needed. ... More
