I am an experienced high school teacher from Florida. As an English and Reading teacher, I encouraged my students to reach beyond just passing the class. I made them become creative and I taught them how to view literature in a more positive way. I encouraged them to share their ideas and their own interpretations of stories and poems. I believe in making each student feel special but also to teach them respect and self worth. I do not give grades, students earn the grades they receive. I do not placate a student because he/she does not want to do an assignment.

As a tutor, I will keep open lines of communication with student, parents and teachers. I believe it is important for everyone to be on the same page. I will have a meeting with the parents and the student before the first session and will give the parents a weekly report on how I think the student is doing. I will also meet with the teacher, with the parents' approval, so the teacher will know about the student's tutoring sessions and coordinate the student's tutoring session with the teacher. My goal is to help the student achieve advancement in his/her English or Reading class so they can participate without feeling insecure.

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.
