During my 17 years teaching in public education, I have taught 6th-8th English/Pre-Advanced Placement English (including reading, writing and language arts), social studies, and science. I have received extensive training in middle school writing and reading. During my student teaching, I taught 2nd grade and 5th grade math. My Texas certification is elementary education 1-8 and English 1-8.

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.

ADD/ADHD

As a classroom teacher, I have worked with several students with ADD/ADHD. In addition, my own son is ADHD so I am very familiar with their needs.

Aspergers

As a classroom teacher, I have taught several students with varying degrees of Aspergers. In addition, I received special training on Autism to address the need of a specific past student. Since my nephew has Aspergers, I am very familiar with their needs.

Dyslexia

In the classroom, I use several techniques including overlays, colored paper, and special fonts to try to help students with dyslexia.

Elementary (K-6th)

My Texas certification is elementary education 1-8 and English 1-8. I completed my student teaching in the HEB school district and taught grades two and five.

Study Skills

Many students have problems with organization, planning ahead, etc. Those elements are the basis of good study skills. Also, students haven't learned study skills tricks. I have worked with several students over the years teaching them how to be better prepared, not only tests, but for everyday learning.

TAKS

The new state assessment, STAAR, is still a bit of a mystery, but I have received extensive training on preparing students for the STAAR test. The STAAR test is much different and more rigorous than TAKS. As a classroom teacher, I am held accountable for the passing rate of my 8th graders; therefore, I do everything I can to make sure the information I teach is accurate and helpful.

Looking for a high-interest book for elementary readers? "Throw Your Tooth on the Roof: Tooth Traditions From Around the World" by Selby B. Beeler and illustrated by G. Brian Karas is a great story! Written in chunks, this story is about what children of different cultures do when they lose a tooth. I read a portion of this story to my struggling first grader, and she didn't want... read more
