Algebra 1

I have taught Algebra to students on many ability levels and grades. I have had 7th grade Algebra students as well as 10th grade Algebra students. It's an important subject to master, as it teaches analytical problem solving which is a very useful skill.


I have been working with the ASD population for 5 years now. I provide habilitation services, and use the ABA method to work on our goals. I am familiar with working on academics with one of my clients, and we have taught her to read and are working on math.


Similar to Aspergers, Autism is on the ASD spectrum but usually refers to individuals a little lower on the spectrum. The majority of my experience has been with clients with the Autism diagnosis. I have 5 years of experience providing Habilitation services to such individuals. I have also worked on academics, such as math and reading with children with ASD.

Elementary (K-6th)

I previously worked with a 6th grader as a homebound instructor. I taught her Latin, Math, Science, and Grammar. She was a homebound student, so we work out of the textbooks provided by her school.

I was also a 6th grade Latin teacher at a charter school in Arizona.


Studying Spanish really solidified my understanding of English. Grammar, sentence diagramming, reading comprehension, all of these are areas I enjoy tutoring.


I am currently doing my practicum to become TEFL certified.


I have tutored Geometry previously, helping a student raise her grade from a 'D' to an 'A'.


Grammar is an important tool for everyone to have. It is not just applicable to students, but to working professionals as well. I have taught grammar to students ranging from the 6th grade to first year college courses.


My degree is in Spanish Literature. I learned to read and think critically about texts. I like to help my students comprehend the text and then think critically about it by discussing the text.


I have experience proofreading academic papers for high school and college students as well as proofreading content for websites and textbooks.


My degree is in Spanish. As a second language learner, I have many experiences with what is and is not effective in my own education. I can apply this knowledge to help struggling students understand material that has proven difficult. My expertise is in grammar-based study, I do not usually teach using full immersion.
