I am interested in tutoring your child in elementary or middle school subjects. My teaching certification is in any subject at the elementary level, and in math and language arts through eighth grade. The areas of concentration for my degree were in reading and math, and I took many courses about how to teach reading, including beginning reading. My master's degree is in Curriculum and Instruction, with some work in the area of parent involvement and English as a Second Language. I have certification from two states. The colleges I attended for my degrees were Bartlesville Wesleyan College (now Oklahoma Wesleyan University) and National University.
My teaching experience includes fifteen years of classroom teaching in the elementary grades (first, second, third, and fourth grades), four years of teaching reading in a pull out program with students in all of the elementary grades, and tutoring (up through eighth grade), as well as several years of substitute teaching. I tutored sixth, seventh, and eighth grade students in reading and study skills, and covered the entire math curriculum for all 3 years. When I was a reading teacher, I helped to teach the gifted class and taught students math and logic problems. I also taught test preparation groups, and coordinated the standardized testing program for the entire school. I enjoy creating some of my own materials, and organizing and differentiating curriculum.
My teaching experience has been in private schools, public schools, and tutoring centers, as well as tutoring in students' homes and home schooling students. I have worked in Texas, California, Oklahoma, and Peru.
I have my own materials and manipulatives for each grade that I have taught, and can make lesson plans for each tutoring session, or can use a curriculum or materials which you have. I have had experience with a variety of publishers and materials and could work with any curriculum. Also I can help with homework.
I am available on weekdays during the mornings and afternoons (until 4:30). I live in Kyle, TX, which is south of Austin, and could tutor students in Kyle, Buda, San Marcos, Lockhart, New Braunfels, and surrounding areas, as well as in the southern and central parts of Austin.
Please let me know if you are interested in seeing letters of reference or teaching credentials.
Thank you for your consideration.
