Hi! I'm eager to help you do your best with your school work! Learning is fun with 1 teacher with 1 student or with 1 teacher and a small group of friends. I have taught boys and girls and young people(Pre-K - Grade 8) and adults(ESL). I received my Bachelor Degree in Elementary Education as well as my Bilingual Endorsement in Spanish. I have been a classroom teacher(4th grade, Spanish PreK-Grade 8), a substitute teacher(PreK-Grade 8) a small group leader(children and adults), a tutor(elementary grades). I have lived in many states and learned to speak Spanish in Puerto Rico. Right now I enjoy doing a lot of volunteer work and have a flexible schedule to tutor. Please let me know if I can help you succeed in your education!

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. 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.

Bible Studies

I love to read the Bible because it shows me how to live the way Jesus wants me to live. It gives me a lot of promises that I can trust. I have been reading the Bible for many years and I continue to learn new things. I have learned that children and adults can understand the Bible. I have taught many children and adults what God tells us in the Bible.

I know that some things in the Bible are hard to understand. I would like to help you learn more about the Bible. We will have fun learning more together.

Elementary (K-6th)

Hi! I love to help children learn all that they can in a fun and successful way. I think all children have the ability to learn. I know some children learn better in a small group or working alone with a teacher. That is why I want to help you succeed in the subjects you want help with and want to learn even more about.

I have helped many children with reading, math, spelling, history, social studies, Spanish, writing, penmanship, science, English. I'm wondering if you would like me to help you succeed and have fun learning. I would like to help you.

ESL/ESOL

Hi! I really want to help you learn English well. I am now teaching ESL to adults and have so much fun with my students. I love to teach ESL to children as well. I speak Spanish but have taught ESL to people from many different countries and languages. I have earned my ESL Endorsement by taking Linguistic classes and many others to help me teach ESL well.

I learned my second language as an adult. I know how difficult it is. I want to encourage anyone who is learning English as a Second Language. I will help you with conversation, reading, writing, pronunciation and listening. Learning English is fun!

Phonics

Hi! Learning to read is so much fun! I love to help boys and girls read better and have fun improving at the same time! Phonics is a great way to learn to read.

I have tutored children in a small group in phonics and comprehension of short stories. I have helped children with phonics and comprehension on a 1-1 basis also. Children reading well is important to me since I believe it is a key to their success in all learning.
