Hello!

I am currently working towards my Master's in Education through Texas A&M-Commerce. I enjoy working with children and hope to have a long career doing so. I currently work at a charter school pulling small groups to help them with areas in which they are struggling. STAAR is a tough test that some students need some help to understand.

STAAR is meant to have students think critically. Each STAAR question must be decoded before even beginning to answer the question. I tutor students to have high order thinking to help them be successful in every subject. My tutoring style is very interactive and hands-on. I believe the more senses you use in the learning the more you will remember.

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I attend Texas A&M Commerce and am working towards a Master's Degree in Elementary Education EC-6. I also work as an Instructional Aide at a charter school where I provide pull-outs for struggling students. I have tutored several children throughout the years from grades Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.

Elementary Science

I attend Texas A&M Commerce and am working towards a Master's Degree in Elementary Education EC-6. I also work as an Instructional Aide at a charter school where I provide pull-outs for struggling students.

I also use the summers to help out with Science Camps at the School where I work.

Handwriting

I attend Texas A&M Commerce and am working towards a Master's Degree in Elementary Education EC-6. I also work as an Instructional Aide at a charter school where I provide pull-outs for struggling students. I have tutored several children throughout the years from grades Kindergarten through Eighth Grade.

I have worked with children beginning to write all the way to children working on cursive. For younger kids I have helped them focus on strengthening their muscles in their hands and letting them get used to holding a pencil. For older kids we work on neatness, spacing, and fluidity.

Phonics

Through Texas A&M Commerce I have taken many classes, where the sole purpose was the study of Phonics. I also work at a school where I pull out small groups of kindergarten children to practice phonics. I also do volunteer tutoring after school for students who need help in phonics. I have also taught phonics through Saxxon workbooks and Frogstreet.

Photography

I took two courses of photography in college and passed both with 100's. I also have entered contests for photography and placed several times.

Through the school I work at, I have been a 45 day teacher meant to pull out students struggling with STAAR. We use critical thinking scenarios meant to help them decode the STAAR.
