My favorite subject to tutor is Spanish. But I enjoy working with students in English (grammar/composition), World History, U.S. History and learning how and what to study for tests. My goal is to help students see success in learning whatever subject is in front of them. I currently work with elementary students, teaching Spanish, but I have also been tutoring high school students in Spanish 1, 2 and 3.

I love to travel and lived in Mexico and Venezuela for 4 years while in my teens. Thus began my love of the Spanish language and enjoying cultures and languages. I welcome getting to work with your student!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 graduated from a Bible College. I also am a pastor's wife and have taken as well as taught about 10 Bible Studies at my church. I also took several Bible classes when I was at Bible college.

English

I have taught English to Freshman. I have also taught/tutored English to several junior high students as well as high school students. I have helped students write research papers, do persuasive essays, write college applications. I have a good grasp of writing, reading comprehension, spelling, and vocabulary.

Spanish

I tutor high school students in Spanish 1, 2, and 3 with great results! I enjoy working with high school students and taught Spanish 1 at Valley Christian High School Summer School several years ago.

Writing

I have written many reports and papers for classes. Most recently, I have taken several classes with University of Phoenix where I have to write papers and I have consistently received an A on my own papers. I know I can help students write a good essay, research paper, persuasive essay, etc.

I found out there is a seminar being given at Stanford University on September 30, under the title of Challenge Success. I signed up for it and I encourage any parents, students and educators to... read more
