ExperienceHello! My name is Gabriel Miller. I am a fully certified teacher in Michigan, able to teach all self-contained classrooms from Kindergarten through 8th grade, with additional endorsements in language arts (BX) and social studies (RX), which allows for teaching of those subjects exclusively in the post-elementary grades.
I have a thorough passion for the art of teaching, and have worked in a wide variety of educational settings during the past 15 years. I have been a teacher/teacher’s assistant in Willow Run, Romulus, Inkster, Warren, and Dearborn districts; I tutored a high school student on a daily basis for 4 years, working with him on general subjects and management of ADHD; I completed practicums in Plymouth, Ypsilanti, and Inkster districts at both the elementary and middle school level, doing my student teaching in a TAG (Talented and Gifted) class at Marshall Upper Elementary in Westland.
Individually or in a class context, I have worked with students ranging in grade level from kindergarten to 12th. I was a team teacher for two years at the University of Michigan Health Systems Child Center, where I worked one-on-one with struggling students, managed behavior interventions, and tutored 5th graders during the summer camp sessions. I have held additional positions at Bach School, University of Michigan Center for Children of Working Families, University of Michigan Center for the Child and Family, and Dearborn Early Childhood Education Center.
Tutoring allows for a focused teaching. Students I tutor are recipients of all the skills I usually administer to large classrooms: dedication, commitment to student understanding, and incorporation of Grade Level Expectations. Most of all, I have learned over the years that all students acquire knowledge and skills differently, and I'm not satisfied until I cater instruction to an individual student's needs.
HobbiesI'm an avid musician, freelance writer, and learner. My wife and I (both of us 32-years-old) live in a 19th century farmhouse 20 minutes from Ann Arbor, where I was raised. My wife teaches art in Ypsilanti, and we're hoping to utilize our mutual summer vacations to start a family soon. I mean, why not?
