English, ESL, Technology teacher with Masters Degree in curriculum and technology available for instruction Online.

Methodology

I use a literacy based approach and provide supplemental direct instruction to improve students’ reading, technology, language, writing, math and technology skills utilizing effective integration of technology.

My teaching philosophy is to design individual learning environments that assess and track individual needs and design creative, integrated units utilizing state-of-the-art technology to teach and/or reinforce reading, language,writing, technology. math, and higher level thinking skills. I use an array of assessment tools and analyze data in order to develop an effective, evidence-based instructional plan for each student. I continuously monitor each student’s progress and make adjustments to their individualized education plan as necessary. This attention to detail consistently results in significant academic gains for my students.

Background

I was a teacher for 25 years and have worked in various environments including teaching high-risk, multicultural neglected and delinquent youth between 5 and 18 years of age in two residential treatment facilities. In addition, I was also an ESL/Language Arts teacher for 4 years at a middle School. Each of my classes consisted of between 30 - 35 students.

In addition, I have worked as an in-home tutor for students in grade school through college. My use of assessments to design individualized instruction to target areas of difficulty provided these students with the skills and knowledge to successfully complete their classes.

My drive, commitment to student success and attention to detail has consistently resulted in significant academic gains for my students.
