Liz J.'s Full Profile
My name is Liz Jarvis, and I am 25 years old. I I have a Bachelor's degree in History with a Minor in English from Mississippi State University and am currently pursuing my Masters of Arts in Teaching at the University of Memphis. I have lived in Memphis for over three years and am originally from the Mississippi Gulf Coast. I love to work with kids and am passionate about education. I have spend the last three years working full-time at an non-profit afterschool program as a tutor and program coordinator. I worked with youth from PK to 12th grade for fours hours per day in all subjects. This program focused heavily on academic achievement, along with motivation and mentorship. My tutoring approach consists of assessment, instruction, collaboration, independent work, and reassessment. For instance, I begin by assessing the student on a certain subject or problem. Then, depending on what the student needs, I will show them how do to one or two problems as an example. Next, we will do one or two problems together; then they will do some independently. Finally, I will reassess and see if they have mastered the skill. I also believe in encouragement and helping students relate skills and subjects to their own lives.Fun Facts: I love learning, reading, and traveling, and particularly love to learn about new and different cultures. I believe in the universal right to education and love to help others realize the joys of learning.
