Hello. I am certified as an educator in the state of Texas with over ten years of classroom experience in all grade levels with an extensive background and ESL certification to work with English language learners. I am additionally certified to teach early childhood classes, classes for students with disabilities, and classes for students identified as gifted and talented. I have worked with special education students, at-risk students and also those with different learning styles. My post graduate work in elementary education included studies in differentiated learning and early literacy.
I have a passion for captivating students' attention toward a demanding or difficult subject. During the initial meeting with the student/parent, we discuss areas of concern and specific challenges that face the student in the classroom or before important exams. As a team, we devise a plan to raise scores and grades which in turn increases the student's self-confidence. Together, we outline a timeframe to reach a target objective or set of goals. My role as the tutor serves to support the student to a point that they feel confident to continue on their own journey to success.
I am available for one-on-one instruction or online for college test prep, English grammar, composition, and literature. I can help you in all verbal academic areas, study skills, and completion of college application and essays. I have increased scores for students taking the TAKS, SAT, ACT, ISEE, TOEFL.
I am certified in the following areas:
English as a Second Language (Grades EC-8)
English Language Arts and Reading (Grades 4-8)
Social Studies (Grades 4-8)
Generalist ESL (Grades EC-4); (Grades 4-8)
I have also tutored middle school and high school students to prepare for high school and college entrance exams. I focus on good writing skills that are essential for the essay as well as for effective communication. Learning to write well takes time and practice. Using positive reinforcement to encourage development, I introduce composition skills that are appropriate and helpful.
I look forward to meeting you and getting started!!
