In addition to being a substitute teacher, I also tutor children in reading who are below grade for their age. I generally work on an individual basis, although most recently I had two to three students at a time. I work on basic skills with the student to build confidence in the subject before pushing her on to more challenging tasks. By building this confidence, the student can succeed at things of which she did not think herself capable. I believe that learning must seem relevant to the student in order for that student to want to learn on her own as well as with my guidance. Therefore, I try to bring the lesson in to context with something in which the student might be interested. I like to work on a closer level with my student-emphasizing the idea that we are working together to learn.
