I am an elementary school teacher, and have been now for several years. I am highly qualified to tutor in multiple areas. I have received my undergraduate degree from Penn State. I have received my Master's from Valparaiso University. With the teaching of Spanish, I spent 1 year in an orphanage in Honduras, and learned Spanish directly under 1 to 1 tutoring.

I can guarantee that you will not be disappointed as I bring creative solutions to the table for your child's learning. I hope that you consider me for any tutoring needs around Philadelphia.

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.

Bible Studies

I teach the Sunday school classes at my church. I have been teaching Bible for the past 5 years in Christian schools. I have been studying the bible now for the past 6-8 years of my life personally.

Elementary (K-6th)

I teach 4th grade at a small Christian school in North Philadelphia, and I have my Pennsylvania Educator's certificate for K-6.

English

I have taught English for many years at the Elementary level to Middle school Level. I have also taught it to adults as well.

ESL/ESOL

I have taught English to Spanish speaking natives in Honduras and from Mexico. I am qualified to tutor ESL/ESOL to all students of any age level.

Praxis

I have completed the Praxis test with a passing score in Pennsylvania, and also the Praxis II tests for my teacher certification. I can help you or your student prepare for these tests.

Spanish

I learned Spanish while attending language school in Guatemala, for two months. I also spent time in Honduras for a year serving at an orphanage. I am quite fluent in speaking Spanish, and have a great understanding of all of the grammar.

TEAS

I am qualified to tutor TEAS, because it is a test of basic educational skills, which I have taught for close to 6 years in Elementary-Middle School as an educator. I have taught Test Prep. before to different students in my times in schools. I believe that this qualifies me to tutor in almost any test prep. area.
