Hi, my name is Abrian and I am excited to work with your child to help them get the results and advancement they are looking for! I am a certified teacher with 7 years of teaching experience. I have a Masters Degree in Education from Northwestern University. I have taught 2nd grade for 4 years and specialize in helping struggling readers gain the skills they need to advance to reading at or above grade level. I have experience working with special needs students with dyslexia, ADHD and speech disorders. I have worked with students with varieties of different learning styles and know how to differentiate lessons to offer specialized instruction based on students’ needs to gain the best results possible. Not only is this especially important to improve reading skills but in all subjects. Through my experience in teaching and tutoring based on student need, I have seen dramatic improvement in all subjects I have worked on with my students.

As an educator in Madrid for 3 years, I worked with students from all over the world and became fluent in Spanish. While I took Spanish class for many years, I specialize in conversational Spanish and can help students take what they learn in class and start becoming comfortable speaking the language! I can also offer assistance to those students who are struggling with any aspect of learning Spanish. I have learned the language as a student in class, as a foreigner living in a new country and as a teacher teaching Spanish so I can offer a wide range of tools for the struggling Spanish learner.

As an elementary educator with 7 years of experience I have knowledge in all elementary subjects and have worked with many different types of learners. I specialize in language arts (reading, writing, spelling, phonics and grammar) but am also eager to help in the area of math, science and social studies as well.

I have found, after working as a teacher over the years, the value of study skills and organization. These skills are an integral part of the success of your child. I am very passionate about this aspect of education. This skill comes very natural to me and it is a part of what I have been doing with my students all the years of my teaching. If this is something you would like your child to work on, I am the tutor for you. I have tools and tricks that I have used with my students to get organized and have seen how well these tools work.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a certified teacher in elementary education in Illinois with 7 years of teaching experience. I have a Masters in Education from Northwestern University. I am a current 2nd grade teacher in a self contained classroom where I teach all core subjects including reading, phonics, spelling, English, math, science and social studies. As a classroom teacher I have worked with students having various learning styles and levels and differentiated their instruction to meet their learning needs. I also have tutored my own students, as well as students in other grade levels for all the years that I have been teaching.

I have extensive theatre experience. Starting in high school, I had leading roles in musical theatre productions for 3 years. At the University of Denver, I majored in Theatre where I had intensive course work in all subjects of theatre with emphasis in acting. I performed leading roles in a number of theatre productions at the collegiate level. I continued professionally, moving to Chicago to pursue on-camera course work. I auditioned for commercial and film work and gained two years of on-camera experience. Next, I moved to Madrid where I worked at the American School of Madrid and continued my work in theatre. I co-directed various theatre events including a main stage high school production of "Oklahoma!" I performed professionally with the Madrid Players, a British theatre company, where I had many leading roles.
