A Chat with Ms. Alba’s Private Tutoring
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
I focus on teaching younger students in a FUN way. My goal is for them to have a great time! I try not to be a worksheet pusher and I completely believe in hands-on learning. I feel that children will more than remember what is being taught if they are having a good time during the lesson.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
I provide everything that your child will need during our time together! That includes games, paper, books, crayons, markers, dry erase boards, and so much more. Some children bring their homework or previous tests that have been taken to show me what and how they are doing.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I taught pre-K while earning my college degree in education. I then taught kindergarten through 3rd grade for several years in Broward County. I have also substituted and taught in a tutoring center. I have been home educating my twin girls for 9 years and want to once again help other children learn!
What do you love most about your job?
I absolutely love when my students get it! What I love even more, is when they find me years later to tell me that I was their favorite teacher and how much I impacted their life. I have students that I taught in kindergarten who are now in college finding me on Facebook. My students rock!
