With my years of classroom and tutoring experience, I truly believe that learning is fun and exciting. For content to be mastered, learning through example is key. I often model through problems in various ways and think aloud to show students my thought process. This method helps students think through and apply their critical thinking to their similar study at hand. From grammar and writing to reading literature, both nonfiction and fiction, I differentiate instruction to meet the needs of various learning styles in an engaging way.
