Hello, My name is Val. I'm a 21-year-old female in the Riverside area. I have worked for three tutoring companies. One was strictly for math. Here I tutored students ranging from kindergarten age to sixth grade. The second company was as an all-around tutor for foster children. The third was for math from 7th to 12th grade.

For Kindergarten, the focus in tutoring would be on writing/recognizing letters, letter sounds and numbers and moving forward in reading and math at the pace that fits the child. For 1st through 3rd, the focus would remain on math and reading, implementing them along with new subjects introduced. For 4th-6th, we would need to make sure the child is at grade level, reviewing any materials they may have forgotten or never understood very well, while making sure they stay current in all subjects. For the tutoring sessions, we can work on homework and any materials the parents wishes. I will also constantly evaluate the child and bring materials myself when the child's homework does not seem to be enough to gain understanding. This applies to all grade levels. To summarize, math and reading are the main focus at any age level, but science, history, art, etc. are equally important and can be used to help math and reading seem less tedious. I have worked for a tutoring company the past two school years. Most of my students are in elementary. I also work at a daycare where I am in charge of teaching the preschoolers. I also have experience with nieces, nephews, etc.
