I have a Bachelor of Science Degree in Elementary Education, from Abilene Christian College. I have taught school in Albuquerque and Taos, New Mexico, Costa Rica, and in Arlington, Texas. I speak Spanish, and helped to start the Bilingual Program at Morton Elementary School in Arlington, Texas. I am a certified ESL Teacher, and am retired since 2006, however, I have substituted in Arlington, Tx. full time since retiring. I have tutored Spanish speaking students in English both in Costa Rica and Texas, as well as English speaking students.
I prefer tutoring Elementary students, although I have tutored Junior High students as well. My method in reading and writing includes the phonics method, and encouraging students to be independent and sound out words in reading and in writing. I believe in a hands on method, in all subjects. I believe they learn best by doing, making, creating and experimenting.
