Hello -or- Hola...as we say in Spanish. My name is Terri; although my students can call me Señora "B". I love the Spanish language and earned my Bachelor Degree in Spanish from the University of Texas at Tyler. I have traveled to Costa Rica and Mexico several times and briefly attended the University Internacional in Cuernavaca, Mexico to enhance my Spanish. I enjoy speaking, reading and writing Spanish and I have tutored my own children and 2 of my 3 children earned degrees in Spanish; my son is a Spanish teacher in Texas and one of my daughters is an ESL/Spanish teacher in Costa Rica.
I like using flash cards, games, songs, magazines, newspapers and real life experiences when teaching Spanish and have recently incorporated Blane Ray's easy readers and novels as part of my tutoring resources. I prefer working with students in grades 6-12.
Even though I live in Flint, I work in Tyler and will tutor in Tyler and the surrounding areas. I'm even open to tutoring via internet - lots of students prefer using the internet; however, this method of tutoring can be somewhat restrictive.
I hope I can help you and your student meet the challenge of learning a new language. After all, learning Spanish Is Easier Than You Think!
I have always enjoyed the challenges of Algebra and would love the opportunity to help a student learn the basics so they can advance through the higher levels of Algebra.
I have taken several Theology and Scripture courses through the University of Dallas and the Diocese of Tyler. I currently teach the Synoptic Gospels and the book of Acts. I have an advanced catechist (religion teacher) certification through the Dicoese of Tyler.
My husband and I owned a dry cleaning business for 15 years. We had a production plant with 8 drop stores. I managed 40+ employees, did A/R and A/P, Payroll and Full Charge Bookkeeping. I helped with advertising, site selection and government regulation compliance. I wrote training manuals, interviewed potential employees and was responsible for records management.
I have a Minor in ESL and have taught ESL for the local Literacy Council. I also taught ESL citizenship classes for those interested in taking the citizenship test.
As a translator, administrative assistant and department coordinator, I have proofread scholarship essays, witness testimony, professional documents and letters.
I graduated from the University of Texas at Tyler in December 2007 with a Bachelor Degree in Spanish and a minor in ESL. I currently use my Spanish skills to translate letters and forms from English to Spanish and Spanish to English.
I have always enjoyed the Spanish language and like sharing my knowledge with others.
I have an Associate Degree in Theatre Arts and have performed in several plays and musicals. I have performed with Tyler Civic Theater, Blytheville Little Theater in Arkansas and Tyler Junior College. I have co-directed, designed costumes and procured props and set arrangements.
Very Helpful and Prepared — Terri really helped my son understand the Spanish lessons. She explained everything very well and used their time together wisely. He learned a lot! We were very pleased!!! ...
