I have student taught for 2.25 years in Kindergarten, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. I've taught and managed my own classroom for grades 2 and 4 for 1.25 years. Also, I taught the fundamentals of reading one on one to students of various for a worldwide reading clinic called Lindamood Bell. I did that for 6 months. I have intermittently tutored undergraduate students and graduate students in writing their essays. I'm skilled at reading an essay prompt and breaking it down into addressable components.

When I was pursuing my Bachelor's in Philosophy at UC Berkeley, I was constantly told that I needed to be more precise. I didn't know how to do that at the time until I sought out graduate students from my department and paid them to help me figure out how to improve my writing. Now, my students will reap those same benefits.

That is a summary of my experience. If you or someone you know wants tutoring in reading or writing for K through University or for elementary or middle school math, I will be of great assistance to you.

If you do decide to schedule an appointment with me, you and I will agree on what the objective of our session will be. From my teaching experience, I've learned that it is important to set objectives in order to determine whether we are making progress. Otherwise, we may never know.

We will also set a time, date, and place. I just require that the location silent and be within 30 minutes of the zip code 77035. If you do decide to cancel an appointment that we made, please give at least a 24 hour notice.

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 am certified by the state of Texas to teach grades Pre-K through 6. I have student taught over 2000 hours for kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. I have taught and managed 2nd and 4th grade classrooms for 1.25 years.

Writing

I have taught multiple elementary grades (including writing) according to Texas standards. Also, my undergraduate degree was writing heavy. I wrote over 250 pages through the course of my undergraduate degree in Philosophy. I eventually wrote a book called Clarity: How to be Precise, Unambiguous, and Direct.
