I am an energetic teacher that loves to help people of any age be successful in their studies. I am patient, understanding and willing to tailor lessons to your specific needs and goals. We can discuss goals and expectations either before we meet or on our first meeting. I am available to teach Spanish, French, biology, ESL and any subject in grades K-8th. I am a certified teacher in the state of Texas. My certification include ESL (EC-12), Life Sciences (8-12),Secondary Spanish (6-12), Secondary French (6-12), Bilingual Generalist French/Spanish (EC-8) and Generalist EC-12. I have been teaching for 8 years in Texas public schools. I have taught 3 years in elementary school teaching all subjects and 5 years in high school teaching biology, Spanish and French.

I have a bachelor of science degree in biology from the University of Houston. My minor in college and native language is Spanish so I am available to teach all levels of Spanish. I spent 2 years in France through study abroad and being a teacher assistant. I also have gone back periodically during the summer and studied at various language schools in France. I speak French fluently and have been teaching it full-time for the past 4 years in high school as well as tutoring adults. I taught beginners through AP level French. I have volunteered as ESL tutor both at the elementary school where I worked and at a nonprofit organization, Literacy Advance. I taught one year of high school biology and it was also my major so I am more than qualified to tutor with that as well. Finally, since I have taught 3 years of elementary school and because I am certified to teach kindergarten through 8th grade, I can also teach any subject in those grade levels.

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 in the state of Texas to teach pre-K to 8th grade. I have taught elementary school for 3 years and I have tutored kids in this age while I was in college at University of Texas. I have the patience and the knowledge of teaching young students.

ESL/ESOL

I have a Biology B.S. degree from University of Houston. I am a native English speaker and have volunteered for tutoring ESL in my elementary school where I used to work and for a nonprofit organization, literacy advance. I also have been teaching foreign languages in High School, Spanish and French, for the past 5 years and this has allowed me to develop techniques to teach a second language.

French

I have a certification from the state of Texas to teach French both as a foreign language in secondary school and as a bilingual language in the elementary years. I have been teaching French in Texas public schools for the past 5 years from beginner to AP advanced levels. I became fluent in French by studying in school and spending 2 years living in France. I also visit France periodically during the summer for extended stays. I teach with the communicative approach but tailor the lessons to the student's needs.

Spanish

I have a certification from the state of Texas to teach Spanish both as a foreign language in secondary school and as a bilingual language in the elementary years. I have been teaching Spanish in Texas public schools for 4 years. My native language is Spanish and I chose to have it as a minor in college to study literature. I teach with the communicative approach but tailor the lessons to the student's needs.
