Hello parents and students! My specialty is helping students to become more thoughtful and critical readers. I have taught Reading Improvement to Middle Schoolers for 11 years. I have a Master's Degree in Advanced Literacy. While studying for my Master's I gained a wealth of knowledge and skills that definitely provided me with great skills to help struggling readers. I provide students with the skills and strategies that will ultimately enhance their overall Reading skills. I believe that in order for students to gain a love for reading, initially the material must be relevant to them. Students must have access to reading materials that interest them. Next, I teach students how to make valid connections to what they are reading. This will help students to better comprehend what they are reading. I am also a huge promoter of building vocabulary. The more words a student is exposed to the more successful they are in reading and in verbal and written communication. I also have an undergraduate degree in Theater Arts. I can help students with public speaking, poetry, and acting.

Education is my passion and it is my philosophy that education is the key to success. I am dedicated to helping struggling students gain success in their educational endeavors. I look forward to working with you!

Thank you,
Ms. M.

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.

Phonics

I am qualified to teach Phonics. I studied Phonics in my undergraduate studies. I am a certified Reading instructor with a Master's in Advanced Literacy. I taught a curriculum for several years that focused on Phonics based learning and my students were very successful.

Public Speaking

I was very active in Speech and Debate in High School and College. I took Speech courses in college while working on my Liberal Arts degree. I am currently the Speech and Debate Coach at the high school where I teach. My students participate in several debate tournaments throughout the school year and they are consistently successful.

Theatre

I am qualified to tutor in Theatre because I have studied it extensively. I attended New Orleans Center for Create Arts for High School and I studied Theater Arts there. I majored in Theater Arts at Grambling State University and earned a Bachelor of Arts Degree. I have acted in many stage plays and I have also worked behind the scenes as a stage manager and acting coach. I am currently a Theater Arts teacher for the Dallas Independent School District. I love theater and acting and would love the opportunity to coach students in Theater and to help them with their acting skills.
