I have been teaching for over 13 years. I hold a Bachelor's Degree from The University of Arizona, a Master's Degree from National-Louis University and a Master's Degree from The University of Phoenix.

I hold a Standard Elementary Teaching Certificate (K-8)and I am fully endorsed in ESL(English as a Second language).

I am someone who takes great pride in teaching students the right way. Being involved in Education for the past 13 years, I have learned to use many strategies that have been successful for me in the classroom.

First, I think you need to be patient. I have found that working with students, whether it be whole group or small group, everybody learns at a different pace. You need to take into account the strengths and weaknesses of students and tailor your learning to them.

Second, I am a firm believer in teaching to the multiple intelligences. Most of my students are either visual or auditory learners. Therefore, I have used technology on a daily basis to help increase retention of concepts. For example, I use short video clips everyday on concepts (Anticipatory Set) before getting into a lesson. This allows students to become familiar before we jump in to the material.

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.

Basketball

I began my basketball career as a student assistant coach at The University of Arizona for Legendary Coach Lute Olson.

I received my first head coaching job at the age of 29 at The College of Lake County in Illinois.

I have also scouted for two NBA teams on a per game basis.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have been teaching K-8 for the past 11 years.

I began teaching as an AIDE for LD/BD kids. Then, I taught PE/Health for 7th grade. After that, I taught one year of PE for grades 3-5.

For the last 5 years, I have been teaching 3rd and 4th grade. I teach all of the subject areas and use technology everyday in the classroom.

I try to use meaningful strategies for all learners. I have found that my students really enjoy when I use show video clips of subject areas before we get into a lesson. For example, we may be working on Fractions. I will show a clip for 2 minutes before we do the lesson. From there, the students are engaged and ready to start.

Microsoft PowerPoint

I have used PowerPoint for the last several years.

Many of our classroom projects are done using PowerPoint. For example, we have done animal and weather research projects and menus.

I let students explore all of the possibilities that PowerPoint offers. They like to use different fonts, clip art, and templates.

I also use PowerPoint to show homework assignments in my classroom. The kids like the different colors and pictures (Animated clip art) that I use.
