Stride Tutoring

Elementary School

Hi. My name is Joyce White. My educational philosophy is simple and to the point. All students can and will learn if given ample opportunities by a caring teacher. I believe that students must be given opportunities that utilize differentiated learning strategies and learning styles such as kinesthetic, auditory, and visual. My goals for tutoring are simple. Goal 1: Meet the student where he or she may be and devise a plan to help them excel academically. Goal 2: Reinforce that learning can be fun when harder concepts and skills are broken into easier steps. I will establish a rapport with my students so they see me as a caring, patient, knowledgeable individual who will take frustration out of the learning equation and ease their fear of trying. I am here to scaffold their learning. Two interesting facts about me is that I play the piano. Singing is often incorporated in my teaching. I chose to become a tutor to make learning fun and easy by revisiting my own educational journey.
