With over 15 years of experience working with kindergarten through 8th grade students I have learned that every student has a different way of learning. With my experience in the classroom and one-on-one tutoring I have gained wisdom on the multitude of ways to reach children in their individual learning styles. Having worked in the classroom, I am able to work with any student’s teacher and their curriculum. Sometimes the classroom experience is not exactly what the child needs to thrive and that is where I excel.
Although I am capable of all subjects from K-8 my specialties are: Language Arts including reading, reading comprehension, and writing. In these subjects, my students excel with my ability to understand which teaching/learning method will help them succeed in understanding the material best. Spanish including English as a second language (ESL) since I was raised in a dual speaking family and continued my education in school and work.
Math is usually an area to improve upon when the student hasn't mastered the basics because every year builds on the previous year. I help my students master the basics while building confidence to tackle the more advanced math concepts. While working with students with learning disabilities my patience and creativity come into play especially when I see them struggling while learning the traditional ways. I have worked with all types of disabilities including: autism, ADD and ADHD, behavioral issues, and Oppositional Defiant Disorders.
