My name is Roxzana and I am excited to be tutoring with WyzAnt! I have a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of California at Santa Barbara in Cultural Anthropology and a Master of Arts degree from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in English and American Literature. I have been a teacher of English and American Literature, Language Arts, and ESL (English as a Second Language) in both secondary and university settings for over 20 years. I also enjoy teaching drama and creative writing. Recently, I have been working extensively with students who have a variety of special needs in alternative education settings while also teaching for an online university. For 13 years my family and I lived in Japan and Brazil, where I was a teacher in various government, private, and international schools, and we are now fully engaged in life the States! I have a great passion for teaching and helping students to achieve their academic goals and dreams. I enjoy spending time with my husband and son, surfing, jogging, creative writing, and theater. I am also completely fluent in Portuguese and have much experience in written and spoken translation.
Throughout my years of teaching, I have learned that it is important to bring all aspects of my expertise and training to any setting in which I am working, while maintaining a student-centered, holistic, and individualized approach that focuses on the immediate and long-term goals of the student. I relish the challenge of creating lesson plans that help students achieve their objectives and to succeed in school and beyond.
I look forward to working with you!
