About MY students
My students struggle. They had trouble learning the letters of the alphabet in kindergarten, reading in first grade, answering questions in second grade, taking tests in third grade and writing in fourth grade. They forget to bring home their jacket and their lunchbox. They try to remember but…
My students misplace their journal for language arts. They copy down part of the homework but the page numbers are missing or illegible. Their backpack has papers from September but not the science book they need to study tonight. They try to study but…
My students listen but don’t always hear. They hear, but don’t remember sometimes. They know it’s important to focus but wait – who just walked by the classroom. Teachers tell them to try harder. Their parents tell them to try harder. They want someone to see they really are trying, but ….
My students are great at soccer, drawing, karate, the Rubic cube, or singing. but think they are failures, like their grades. They feel discouraged, and don’t understand why school seems so easy for everybody else. They want someone to see they really are trying, but it’s just not working.
My students may not learn the same way anyone else in their class learns but they are frustrated kids, not failures!
They need a teacher who can help them regain their self confidence and motivation.
They need to experience progress and success so we celebrate small steps.
It isn’t easy.
It doesn’t happen quickly.
But what can be more worthwhile?
Working one-to-one gives me the flexibility to teach each child in ways that work specifically for them. I provide truly differentiated instruction that allows them to enjoy learning and experience progress and success that doesn’t happen in the classroom.
Together with you, we can build on your child’s strengths and strengthen your child’s weaknesses.
Get ready parents, better days are ahead.
