Tutoring Style and/or Experience

I recently graduated in New York State with a Master's Degree in English Education for the Secondary level. I have over 1000 hours in schools in upstate New York and I am currently a substitute teacher in Polk County. I tutored students at Dunkirk High School in NY and have been in several other schools observing, teaching, providing aid to teachers, etc. I moved to Florida to pursue teaching full time and had to leave my position as a mental health counselor of six years in New York. My teaching style is very student-centered. I want to be able to work with the students on what they need and what they feel they need. I believe to do is to learn and would facilitate reading and writing workshop-style tutoring lessons, providing a place for students to work hands on in English and Reading. I also believe that one doesn't truly learn unless they are enjoying the experience and for many students who have difficulty with the language, it is often the exact opposite for them in the classroom. I can appreciate that some students don't have a passion for reading and writing. I do have that passion. I would love to be able to pass that along to as many students as I can!
