"Creative patient teacher wants to help you!"
I am a certified elementary teacher with an art degree. I have a master's in elementary education. I've taught as an art teacher, substitute and eco-friendly daycare teacher, as well as a nanny.
I believe in a student-led environment rather than a teacher-led environment. By this I mean that I don't teach a definition and require the student to repeat it back to me without understanding what the concept really is. I like to relate concepts to real life, rather than leaving ... ... More
"Motivation and Progress"
I am qualified to teach students with ADD, being a special education teacher, I have had to implement different strategies to help the student stay on task.
Students that have various deficits sometimes also have ADD/ADHD, therefore I have written IEPs to specifically address this deficit. One strategy that I used was time on task for a certain amount minutes, break, then repeat, the goal is for the student to eventually be able to stay on task longer over a period of time. Use of a reinforcer of the student's preference will also help to motivate the student to stay focus and on task for long ... More

She took great care in proofreading my paper. She broke down the idea of parallelism in a memorable way. She provided great grammatical examples that were easy to apply while writing my own papers. She was very respectful of my personal time and time-sensitive assignment.

"Effective Spanish Tutor for Naperville Area Students"
I love speaking and teaching Spanish! I began to learn the Spanish language when I was fourteen years old, and I continued to formally study this language for five years--even during the early part of my undergraduate studies. Since then, I have continued to informally study Spanish, both through wonderful online resources and through personal relationships with Spanish-speaking individuals. These relationships have enabled me to maintain and to improve my use of the Spanish language.
I jus... ... More

My teaching style is one of:
* LISTENING to see what your student is doing; to learn how he or she thinks.
* ENCOURAGING students to push a little farther; to show them what they're really capable of.
* EXPLAINING to teach what students need, in ways they can understand and... ... More
