Government & Politics
I graduated from Trinity University with a BA in Political Science. I spent a semester studying Foreign Policy at American University in Washington, D.C.
I have extensive experience working with both children and adults to improve their grammar skills. I have worked with both native and non-native English speakers in this regard.
I first went to Osaka, Japan, as a summer exchange student with Youth For Understanding. I then returned home and studied 2 years of Japanese at Paschal High School. I was lucky enough to be in the inaugural class. Upon graduation from Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas, I worked in Nagaoka, Japan for three years as a participant in the Japan Exchange and Teaching Program. I achieved Level 3 Proficiency on the Japanese Proficiency Language Test, JPLT certification exam, and am continuing my own study to pass the next level. My love for the Japanese language and its people has never waned. I truly enjoy everything about Japan and am eager to assist with your learning goals.
The state of Texas considers me highly qualified to teach K-4 reading. I have a track record of helping students improve their phonemic awareness, and double their words read per minute within a short period of time.
I have worked extensively to help elementary students improve their phonemic awareness and fluency.
I will work with you to compile a list of resources for lesson enhancement. I have had success in
doubling words per minute. I will help increase your child's confidence exponentially.
I myself have a slight physical disability, Cerebral Palsy. My experience has helped me to gain special insight and ability to teach those who may need extra time to grasp concepts. Those with any type of disability deserve to be respected & encouraged just as anyone else.
I have been an avid swimmer my entire life. I was a member of 2 teams in high school, and earned the right to represent my state as a member of 2 national teams. I especially enjoy teaching beginners and assisting them in alleviating their fear of the water. I believe everyone should learn to swim.
Vocabulary building provides a foundation for success in many, many subjects. Understanding root words and prefixes can greatly enhance reading and spelling abilities. Focus on vocabulary can help your student excel in many other areas.
We can understand ourselves and our world more fully when we examine world history. I can help build foundation in this area, and open up a world of possibilities for your student. We are becoming more and more interdependent. We must understand how our decisions in America affect the rest of the world, and vice-versa.
