ExperienceI'm a lifelong Long Islander, and I've been working with kids in one way or another my whole life. I've been a camp counselor, a preschool teacher, an assistant for children's theater, and of course a tutor. I've also subbed in several local school districts, teaching a variety of grades and subjects. In just a few months, I'll be graduating with my master's in Childhood Education with a focus in Bilingualism, and I have just been hired as a full-time elementary school ESL teacher. I speak Spanish fluently and can sign conversationally in ASL. One of my most powerful tutoring experiences occurred a few years ago. My student was failing freshmen math and she didn't believe that she had the ability or potential to perform any better. When I began working with her, I told her that I believed she was capable of understanding and excelling at math, and I tailored my teaching style to fit her unique personality. Because of this, the student began to really trust in her own abilities. Not only did her math scores improve dramatically, but her overall grades showed significant improvement. Now, three years later, she has been accepted to college. Being a part of that positive change is what's most meaningful to me as a tutor.
