Thank you for taking the time to choose the right tutor who's going to help you succeed!

I am a native Spanish speaker from Ecuador. My background is Montessori, Special Education and English as a Second Language. I am eager to teach you or your child in different academic subjects as well.

I have more than 12 years' experience working with K-8 in Special Education using the Montessori Method and have also taught Spanish classes for 6 years. I have over 16 years of experience teaching children and adults in multiple academic subjects. Some of the subjects that I specialize in are: English as a Second Language, GED, Citizenship, Spanish and Computers.

Currently, I own my own tutoring business in which it launched in 2012 and it has been very successful. The consumers are pleased with the services we provide. It gives them the opportunity to explore more and be active with their learning while we help them advocate for themselves. I am mostly teaching English As A Second Language, Spanish and Phonics.

Through WyzAnt, I have been tutoring independently 6 years. I also use other companies, or I advertise my services wherever possible. I love knowing that I can make a difference in a person's life to fulfill their goals. Anything is possible if you set your mind to it. I always take a lot of pleasure working in a diverse atmosphere. Not only do students learn from me, but they have a lot to teach me as well and am very grateful.

I look forward to working with you and provide the best education to help you succeed. If you have any questions or need further references, please feel free to contact me.

Gracias!!!

Approved subjects are in bold.

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.

Nutrition

I have worked in the Nutrition field for 6 years for the Lawrence WIC Program in which, I became a Certified Nutrition Assistant I&II after going through an intense 6 months training through the Department of Public Health. I feel confident that I can help women and children in providing healthy nutrition information for how to be successful in having a better eating option.

Spanish

I taught Spanish classes at a Montessori Charter Public School for 3 years. Each classroom usually had 25 students from K-8. So, I probably had about 288 students. Later, I tutored privately, especially home-schooled children grades K-5. Once in a great while I had some adult professionals who were looking to learn the language. Currently, I'm teaching all ages at different levels.

All students are evaluated and then taught vocabulary, phrases, grammar, and some conversation depending on their level. For children except high school, I use the Montessori Method and other materials to make the language more exciting. At high school level, I normally guide myself with the materials they are using in school while adding other supplementary to broaden their knowledge. Professionals usually are interested in mostly conversation and some grammar to help them move along in their job field, so I will use whatever terminology is needed to help them be successful and show them how to properly utilize those terms.

Special Needs

I have over 10 years of experience working with students with special needs, especially those who have ADD/ADHD, Autism, Dyslexic, Aspergers, Down Syndrome, Speech Impairment, who were on IEP and needed assistance in all academic areas in a small classroom setting at the Greater Lawrence Educational Collaborative and Hill View Montessori schools. I was also there assisting these students emotionally and physically when they were not able to do for themselves. I was certified in SPEDIAC, Nonviolent Crisis Intervention and Brain Gym.
