After years of teaching at both the High School and Elementary level, I have gained great insight as to some of the best teaching methods for various topics. I have had the opportunity to teach, coach, and tutor various different topics making me a very valuable tutor. I received an undergraduate degree in Portuguese and a minor in music. I received a graduate degree in education emphasizing in math education. I currently teach high school math and music at a local high school here in Phoenix. Although I do currently teach High School students, I do have experience working with younger children and have proven success in the past with them as well. While teaching, I am also a coach for both football and soccer. I have had the opportunity to coach students from elementary level through the varsity level in high school. While I am currently a Varsity head coach, I am still gaining experience as to different methods to motivate students and learners. I believe that everyone can learn and should learn. I specialize in finding methods that are unique and effective for each individual student for whatever the topic may be. While everyone can learn, not everyone learns the same way. That is why I look for the best method to help motivate and allow the learner be as successful as possible.
My previous experience includes:
Current Math Teacher - 4 years (7th-12th grade)
Current Choir Teacher - 1 Year (High School)
Music Tutor - 2 years (Guitar, Bass, Drums, Piano, Trumpet, Music Theory, Beginning Violin-Students from ages 6-58)
English Teacher - 2 years (Taught English to Brazilian students in Brazil)
Current Soccer Coach - 4 Years (Junior High and Varsity Head Coach)
Current Football Coach - 2 Years (High School Freshman and JV Football Coach)
Long Term Substitute - 1 Year (High School English AIMS Prep)
I am fluent in reading, writing, and speaking English and Portuguese. I am proficient in reading, writing, and understanding Spanish.
I will always go above and beyond what is required to make sure that each learner is as successful as they possibly can be.
