I am a recently retired teacher with 40 years experience. I have taught every grade level from 5th grade through high school with the majority of my experience at 5th and 6th grade levels. I have a major in Spanish and a minor in English, as well as ESL certification. I have taught all elementary subject areas with history and math being my favorites. I enjoy working one on one with students and helping close those gaps that interfere with their acquisition of new skills.

Approved subjects are in bold.

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 have spent 40 years teaching in Texas schools with the majority of that time in 5th and 6th grade classrooms.

Elementary Math

I have taught 5th and 6th grade math for many years. It is one of my favorite subjects. Most students have trouble with math because they are trying to work in the abstract when they don't understand the underlying concrete concepts. Until they have that understanding, they will struggle in the classroom.

Logic

I have always enjoyed analytical puzzles. I provide my students with logic puzzles to help them learn to think analytically and reason through problems. This is an area that is often overlooked in education but one that is vital to success.

Phonics

I have a major in Spanish, a minor in English, and ESL certification. I have taught reading at 5th and 6th grade levels for many years. Phonics is an integral part of teaching intermediate level ELL students.

TAKS

I have prepared 5th and 6th graders to take TAKS every year. Our campus generally has a 90-95% pass rate in reading and a 95+ pass rate in math.
