I have been a professional teacher and private tutor for over 27 years. I hold multiple teaching certificates and I am highly experienced in numerous areas of education. Currently I hold a Masters Degree with 78 graduate credit hours beyond that degree. I tutor because I enjoy it, and am looking to supplement my income.

I have worked as a teacher and teacher/administrator in city and suburban, public and private schools. I was Coordinator of the Muscatine Migrant Committee, a Federally Funded program helping Mexican Migrant Workers to attain appropriate housing, interpreting, educational, medical, and other public aide services. I have also taught infants and toddlers through the gym and swim programs at the YMCA, as well as teen, adult, and senior fitness classes at the YMCA and Chicago Health Clubs.

Academically I have taught after-school and adult Spanish and ESL programs, as well as teaching Special Education Cross-Cultural Education, and Social Studies Methods to University students.
