Hi! I have been teaching in private schools for the past 6 years. During that time, I have had experience working in 2nd-6th and 8th grade classrooms. I also spent 4 of those years teaching in South America. Although I have no formal training except tutors I had during my time there, I learned Spanish while I lived there. I taught English speaking children, but I attended a Spanish church and had the ability to get around at stores, post offices, and public transportation. I graduated both high school and college with a high GPA, and am currently looking for extra work in order to have a little extra money and possibly pursue getting my Master's in Special Education or training in TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language). Thanks for reading my page!

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have a Bachelors in Elementary Education. I received an Excellence in Education award upon graduation. I have taught for the past 6 years working with grads 2nd-6th and 8th. I have also done one-on-one tutoring off and on throughout high school, college, and my teaching career.

Phonics

I have an Elementary Education degree where we were taught the concept of phonics. I spent two years teaching 2nd grade where I became very familiar with the special sounds and blends used to teach phonetical reading. In higher grades where phonics was not taught, I often used the special sounds to help students figure out how to sound out words or to spell a word correctly.
