Hello, my name is Tonjuana! I've been teaching ESL, General Ed. students for the past 13 years in all subject areas grades 3-5. I also have my Masters in Educational Administration and currently completing my Doctoral in Administration for Leadership in Teaching. I've worked as a part-time tutor with Sylvan Learning Center and as an independent contract tutor with Club Z tutoring in both Dallas and Houston.
I love working with elementary students and find that using hands-on and a one-on-one approach in a small setting is the best way for elementary students to learn. I use manipulatives for math lessons and graphic organizers for note-taking during reading. I like to provide my students with multiple ways of approaching a response to a situation, this I've found allows them to become better problem solvers.
When servicing my students as a tutor, I provide them with the same teaching method that I provide students in my classroom. I bring my own manipulatives and resources to help aid them with their lessons and also help them to better understand and use the current resources they are provided with from their own teachers.
I would love the opportunity to help your child grow, not only academically but also gain confidence in their most uncomfortable subject areas.
