Lesson

Verbal Reasoning is the ability to understand and reason using words. This skill enables us to use our language skills in order to negotiate and explain within our environment. Think about our day to day lives as adults. We are constantly asked to explain our reasons for doing something.

For a young child, the verbal reasoning capacity can be tested by looking at their understanding of words and phrases, their ability to draw conclusions from incomplete sentences, their ability to identify an incorrect statement, or their ability to problem solve or provide an alternative idea when needed.

About

Being a versatile individual, I have had the opportunity to teach students who functioned below-, on-, and above grade level. I have been successful at accommodating diverse student needs by facilitating all styles of learners, offering individualized and extracurricular support . I utilize weekly quizzes and monthly tests to track student progress, locate areas of weakness, and prepare students for finals exams.

My methods are, of course, also informed by a thorough understanding of assessment requirements and criteria both for school entrance examinations and public examinations. I believe that a positive and confident attitude towards the various academic subjects being studied can be hugely beneficial in terms of results, and I try to engender this by providing a supportive yet challenging relationship and environment for study.

I think the most important quality in any tutor is patience. My first step is to perform an assessment of the student; this, along with a comparison of the student's academic goals, forms the basis of our lesson plan. I listen closely to the family's goals in order to tailor my approach specifically to that student.
