I’m two weeks into my Adult Education tutoring and I love it!! I’m teaching Social Studies and Science. I was really nervous the first week. I spent alot of time researching the lesson (Establishing the Colonies) and writing out my lesson plan. I copied maps for handouts to aid the lesson. I was really into it. I wanted to make sure I did a good job because it could help the students get their GED. The first class I had 7 students. They ranged from about 19 to about 50 or 60. I got a lot of positive feedback.
Yesterday was the 2nd class. The lesson was the American Revolution. I went to the school supply store and bought posters that represented different aspects of the lesson. I also had three new students!! I was a lot less nervous and we had a great time. I thought that I would like it but I didn’t know I would like it this much. It’s the highlight of my week. I find myself spending a lot of time researching and looking for activities to make the lesson more interesting. It’s great!
Raf also started his one-on-one math tutoring. He has two men that he meets with. He is also enjoying it! I’m glad I made us do this!LOL It is very fulfilling experience.
