Teaching Methods

Common Core

Ms Sheena teaches all public school students in accordance with Hawaii State Common Core standards using her own custom curriculums and resources. Scaffolding is used to help students both build skills as well as identify any “gaps” in their understanding.


Math

Ms. Sheena tutors in elementary math and foundational skills; Pre-Algebra; Pre-Geometry; Algebra I, II, and III; and Geometry. A heavy emphasis is placed on number sense, mental math, mathematic reasoning, and real-world applications. Kids get to use their math in fun projects and games.


Reading

Ms. Sheena uses a variety of reading strategies including reading out loud, listening to samples of poor reading skills, acting out passages, building vocabulary, and storytelling. The whole body is used including learning acting and voice drills to support and build expressive reading skills. Students are encouraged to challenge themselves with support and learn to use resources appropriately to provide clarity and deepen understanding.


Writing and Composition

Ms. Sheena encourages using subjects students are passionate about to build better writing and composition skills. Acting and vocal exercises support vocabulary and figurative language building. Structured writing is taught with debates, descriptive stories, outline introduction and practice, and much more.
