I really enjoy teaching elementary students. I have been homeschooling my own children for 18 years and so I have taught every grade and every subject to children with varying learning styles. I also spent the entire Fall semester tutoring a second grader in grammar independent from Wyzant. Additionally, I am qualified through Wyzant in Elementary Math and Science. My teaching method will vary depending on the needs of the student and the subjects to be taught, but I am well versed in creative methods, including many kinesthetic learning tools.
Because I have spent nearly twenty years teaching multiple students with varying learning styles, I am well versed at helping students develop study techniques that work for them. Some students are visual, some are aural and some kinestetic. The key to developing good study skills is to figure out which techniques work best for a particular student. Some of the study aids I have employed in the past include flash cards, color coding, mnemonics, and good note taking.
I have been a homeschooling mom for nearly twenty years. During that time I have educated five children and have successfully graduated two. I am familiar with a lot of different curricula and am skilled at writing a syllabus. I am comfortable with all the challenges and concerns that are unique to homeschooling.
