Tutor Personal Information

Name: Cherise B.
Gender: Female   Age: 26-30
Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I have been teaching for four and a half years. I have my BA in Elementary Education. My minor is English as a Second Language. I am highly qualified in mathematics K-8 in Arizona. TSPC is currently processing my Initial Oregon Teaching Certificate. I am committed to improving my skills as an educator and am currently earning my Masters of Arts in Mathematics Education from Arizona State University.

Until our recent move back to the Northwest, I was employed as an elementary school teacher in Scottsdale, Arizona. Along with teaching full time, I have tutored students in all general subject areas, taught study skills and provided enrichment. I have created and taught summer school curriculum for courses on law, communications and mathematics. I have worked with students with special needs and children identified as gifted. I have also spent the last four years working as a mentor with middle and high school students.

Teaching and watching children learn is my passion. I believe that every individual is capable of learning and his/her individual needs must be recognized and met. I have found that students rise to the expectations. I enjoy the challenges and rewards of tutoring and working with students one-on-one or in small groups. This enables me to create learning plans that meet each child's learning styles such as multiple intelligences, auditory, kinesthetic, and visual. All of these experiences and many more continue to shape me as an educator and drive me to positively impact my students and their learning.
