Hello,
I have several years experience tutoring and teaching in Palm Beach County. I am Florida certified teacher with certification in the following areas: math, biology, reading, elementary education, ESOL and gifted.
I have a bachelor's degree in science and a master's degree in education. My master's degree focused on english language learners. I specialize in second language acquisition and building reading skills in beginning readers as well as all areas of math and science.
I have many references including families that I have worked with for 5 years. All of my students receive support in study skills, test taking strategies, and direct instruction.
I am also a certified yoga instructor. I currently run a yoga club at my school and have several years' experience in teaching yoga to children. I use some of the stretching and breathing techniques in my tutoring sessions as a means to lower stress and raise awareness.
I look forward to being a part of your child's educational success!
Thanks!
Heather

Algebra 1

I have been tutoring Algebra 1 for 6 years.

Biology

I have a bachelor's degree in biology. I majored in pre-med and graduated with a 3.9 gpa. I was researcher at FAU in microbiology and worked as their pre-med program coordinator. I have been tutoring science for 8 years.

Elementary (K-6th)

I am a Florida certified teacher in Elementary Ed. I have a master's degree in education and have years of experience teaching grades k-5. I specialize in math and science.

Elementary Math

I have taught math at many levels including gifted 5th grade.

Elementary Science

I LOVE science! I have always loved it. I majored in it in college and chose this as my career path in education. I have taught all levels including being a k-5 science specialist at a charter school, teaching gifted 5th grade science, teaching middle school 7th and 8th grade, and tutoring high school science.

English

I have always been an excellent writer and avid reader. I connect well with my students and believe exposure to a rich vocabulary and attention to details in writing structure are key to good writing.

Geometry

I have been teaching and tutoring geometry for 6 years.

Microsoft Word

I have taught many students in my classes how to use word to create essays, reports, etc. I have been using word for over 15 years.

Study Skills

I teach study skills to all my students in conjunction with whatever subject area we are working on. All students need help with organization and time management. It is a skill not always taught at school or home. Having a certified teacher come in and work one on one with your student in this area gives them skills that will benefit them all the way through college.

Yoga

I teach yoga to children and adults. Children love the breathing techniques and easy relaxation that I teach them. My students use it before a test to center themselves, calm anxiety, and feel more confident in themselves. In addition to the mental benefits, yoga offers a physical workout combining stretching and strength building. We can tailor the hour to fit the needs of the student, some need more relaxation and stress reduction while others need both physical activity and stress reduction.
