Botany was one of the classes that I took for my undergraduate minor in Biology. I have also taught Botany to eight graders and high schools students for several years. Also, I have tutored several students in Botany in high school and college.
I have taught all of the subjects for grades K-6 for over 25 years. I have also tutored many students who were lacking in any of these subjects. I use innovative and creative methods to achieve mastery of any subject. I love teaching and my students do well in school. One of my specialties is teaching students from grades preschool through sixth grade
Bachelors in English, Masters in Education, wrote two Masters Theses and one Doctoral Dissertation on Literacy (Reading and Writing--Essays, Research Papers, College Entrance Essays).
I am also a published poet and writer.
I am patient, devoted, dedicated, and reliable
I have taught phonics to first graders and second graders for 10 years. I also have taught phonics in grades preschool through high school and to some adults for many years. My doctoral dissertation which took 7 years to complete is in reading mastery, which includes phonics, comprehension, vocabulary, decoding skillsets.
I have a Master's Degree in Psychology and Counseling, which I have had for several years. I also was an MFCC intern for a year and I counseled many people as an intern.
I have a Lifetime Elementary Teaching Credential in K-8; a Masters Degree in Education, a Learning Specialist Credential, and a Doctorate in Literacy.
I have had great success with struggling students and those who need patient care to achieve their goals.
I have been studying the Bible for many years and I have taken many classes on religion. I also was a teaching Catholic nun for 15 years, in which I taught religion every school day to many different grades. I pray every day, as I have for many, many years.
I have a Masters Degree in Special Education and a Learning Handicapped Credential. I taught students that were EMR, MR, LD, Autistic, and had deficits in auditory and visual memory for several years in public, county, and private schools. I have also taught gifted students in various settings.
Since I am a Learning Specialist, I know that value and teach the value of study skills, which include: being organized, sticking to a schedule, having your books and study aids (pencils sharpened, pens, paper, notebooks, assignments written in a scheduler) near your quiet, calm study area with few distractions. Organization is important in school and in any walk of life.
I have taught many students study skills.
I have a minor and almost a major in Zoology and Biology, which means that I have 16 credits in these two fields. I have tutored many students in these two subjects with much success. I have taught both subjects. I believe that both subjects require memorization of key vocabulary terms, understanding life cycles such a mitosis and meiosis, and understanding how the animal kingdom evolved from the one-celled organisms to the mammals and the homo sapiens.
