Bio description: From May 2019 to February 2020, I tutored a bilingual kindergarten student in English vocabulary and grammar. To practice reading comprehension and pronunciation, the student and I took turns reading aloud. As we read, I would ask questions relating to plot and character development, and encouraged the student to ask me similar questions. After noticing the student’s enthusiasm for music, I came up with a musical adlib game. I would omit certain words from his favorite songs and guide him in replacing these words with appropriate parts of speech. From May 2018 to January 2020, I provided homework help to a 6th grade student. I assisted the student in practicing organizational techniques to prevent lost homework sheets or missed deadlines. In addition, I introduced the student to memorization strategies including flashcards and mnemonic devices. In order to provide the most excellent instruction possible, I brushed up on Common Core math strategies in my free time with workbooks purchased with my own funds. During the 2019 Spring semester I worked in a fifth grade classroom with the America Reads program. My responsibilities included monitoring small group sessions and assisting students who needed one-on-one instruction. This public school employed a “mixed ability” model, so I tutored general education and special needs students. Through this experience, I learned how to optimize the learning environment to meet a student’s specific needs. I coordinated with my supervising teacher to design projects for seasonal events such as Black History Month, Women’s History Month, and Earth Day.
