My name is Adriana L. I am a resident of Casa Grande, Arizona. I have lived in Arizona for 30 years now. In my undergraduate years I attended Central Arizona College for two years (1997-2000) and majored in Exercise Science/Physical Education. From there, I transferred to Arizona State University and completed two years there receiving my Bachelors Degree (2002) in Exercise Science/Physical Education. In continuing my education, I returned to Arizona State University and continued to major in Education. In 2006, I received my Masters Degree in Elementary Education (Curriculum and Instruction). I have taught grades K-3. One year teaching Physical Education, two years teaching Kindergarten and five years teaching 1st grade. I have also worked and taught for The Sylvan Learning Center for about a year when they were housed here in the Casa Grande area. I have worked after school programs, summer camps,summer school, etc. My teaching style is very structured with much management. As a teacher, I set high expectations for my students and always want them to succeed. I also make learning enjoyable with a positive learning atmosphere.
Currently, I am a paraprofessional at Mary C O'Brien Elementary School. I chose to be a paraprofessional this year because I recently had a baby 3 months ago and just wanted to take a break from being a teacher this year so that I can have more time to be there for my baby. Therefore, when this position was open, I thought this was a great opportunity for me to keep my feet wet. Please contact me if you need tutoring services. My tutoring services will be primarily with the lower grades K-2. Thank you.

If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been an elementary teacher for eight years. My first year of teaching was in Physical Education, two years of Kindergarten and five years in first grade. I am a highly qualified teacher and have met all credentials asked of me.

I enjoy teaching the lower levels very much because at these grade levels I have the pleasure of seeing my students achieve so much academically. It is amazing to be involved with this grade level because these are the critical, but worthy times, to see a child learn so many new things and absorb so much at a young age.

Phonics

In my eight years of teaching, I have been trained in reading first schools that require us to be knowledgeable in vocabulary, comprehension, fluency, phonemic awareness and phonics. All these five factors are linked into how we teach reading. Each factor plays a role in how we teach students how to become successful readers.

Reading

I am qualified in Reading. Factors that are included when it comes to reading are: fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, phonics, etc. As a previous First Grade Teacher, I have taught all these aspects in the subject of Reading.
