"When interviewing applicants for reading specialist positions, employers will be interested in your ability to design effective reading programs to improve the school's English department, instruct classes as well as work with students one-on-one, and cater your instruction to meet the needs of individual students. Be sure to highlight your communication skills, patience, and knowledge to evaluate a student's reading strengths and weaknesses. Be aware that many institutions expect candidates to have a master's degree and reading specialist certification alongside teaching credentials."
How would you get a student interested in a subject that he/she doesn't care for? How would you make that lesson fun?
Try to find out the student's interests (favorite TV show, movie,video game, book, etc) and cater it to the lesson plan. Example: If you are teaching a student math and he/she like The Nightmare Before Christmas, add the characters to the math problem. Jack has 12 pumpkin bombs and gives 7 to Sally. Zero takes 1. How many pumpkin bombs does Jack now have? Jack now has 4 pumpkin bombs.
