Professional Handwriting Improvement Teacher

Improving children's penmanship, legibility, pencil grasp, and working on problem areas are all important things that need to be addressed—especially in the digital age when most of our written communication is done through texting on mobile devices or typing on a keyboard. Voice recognition software has even evolved to the point that commands can now be verbal—making even keystrokes obsolete!

Visual-motor skills, such as eye-hand coordination, are associated with academic achievement. Scientists have found that developing fine motor skills in early childhood can predict not only writing success, but better performance in reading and math in elementary school.

Children who can write quickly and legibly are more likely to demonstrate skills in expressing their thoughts through the written word. When kids struggle to write neatly and efficiently, they are often accused of being lazy, and this may affect their behavior and self-esteem.

About
FavoriteSTUDENT
FAVORITE

My approach to tutoring is student-driven and question-based. 'Student-driven' means that each lesson is tailored to their own needs and concerns. We tackle the topics that they find most challenging and build confidence from there. 'Question-based' means that I always keep my students engaged and on their toes. They are an active participant in the lesson and enjoy rising to the challenge.

It is imperative to set clear goals with each individual tutee and over the course of the lessons, achieve these goals in a direct and rewarding manner. The methods used to reach these set incentives will change according to the situation and needs of the student. However, there are some central principles with my approach to tutoring that do not change. I seek to inspire confidence and motivation by drawing out enthusiasms of the subject to ensure on-going interest in the lessons. I also focus on building strong and trustworthy relationships with the students which in turn make for positive and successful lessons.

It is my desire that pupils/students see education beyond the classroom thing and they understand this as a major input in their critical and problem solving skills which is required of every 21st century learner. I am resourceful and I always meet deadlines.I make sure my sessions with students are always impacting, leaving a good note about the subject always.I make sure my sessions are practical and this makes the subject easier to relate and recall also for the students.

I have attended professional seminars and workshops which have helped in harnessing my teaching skills and expertise. Some of these seminars and workshops include: Nelson Cursive Handwriting, Mental Mathematics, Educational Aid Global Initiative powered by Covenant Christian Centre etc.

As a teacher, I believe my greatest teaching strength is my ability to understand each pupil unique strength requirements and assisting them to achieve as much as they can.
