Ms Alexandra K. of Kew Gardens NY USA Tutor Profile
Tutor Personal Information
|Name:||Ms Alexandra K.|
I hope to pursue a career in teaching upon completion of my degree. I strongly believe that every student, regardless of learning style, can achieve stellar results with the right instruction and encouragement. I am dyslexic and, over the course of my academic career, I have mastered the study skills and academic strategies that best fit my needs.
Because of my personal experience, I am able to work with students to discover what study skills and organizational techniques will be most helpful to them. From there, I work on the specific subject in which the student needs attention. I specialize in Latin, English, History, Social Studies and Writing.
I worked as a teacher's aide at Capital City Charter School in Washington DC for a summer enrichment program. During my time at Capital City Charter School many of my students had learning disabilities and differences. I learned to tailor classroom activities and lesson plans to students' individual needs.
