I am a student at the University of Maryland University College for my Master of Accounting and Financial Management. I have been tutoring children and young adults for over six years; and I have helped young elementary children that have fallen behind a grade catch up and move forward to excel in reading and mathematics. I believe that children must have a strong foundation in English grammar and spelling to be able to write effectively in middle school and high school. Children must be encouraged to exceed the standards set by the state, and these standards should be a bare minimum of the level of education for a child. Mathematics should be focused upon heavily to encourage future careers in the sciences. Foreign language study should begin before the age of ten. These are my standards for teaching children and I believe that they produce the most successful results.
