I have taken ESOL courses to broaden my teaching experience and have since worked with ESOL students in the classroom. I have also tutored Elementary French and Spanish, and have traveled extensively, which gives me global perspective when working with students where English is a second language.
I have taught and tutored students with dyslexia as well as students using the FUNNIX system at the elementary level in Georgia. I have also taken Reading Endorsement classes in Florida for PLU teacher points that covered basic phonics skills.
As an Honor Student in Spanish on the West Coast, I started my teaching career straight out of high school as a Bi-lingual Parapro. Years later, I became certified as a Special Ed teacher but have tutored primary-level Spanish for several years. If you need help with basic Spanish, simple verb conjugation, general conversation and vocabulary, I can help you!
I am a GA Certified Special Education teacher and can teach general studies as well to all students (including gifted students)such: as Social Studies, Pre-Algebra, US History and Study Skills. I am currently teaching in a Title 1 school, so I work during the school day, but am available to tutor in the evenings and occasionally on weekends for a short term project.
I can tutor children of all ages to help them with standardized tests such as the CRCT's. Gateway's, etc. I can also tutor older children and adults as well, so if you are preparing for a college entrance exam, need to write an essay, a resume, or pass an ASVAB test, let me know, and I can help! Successful testing and writing skills requires specific strategies to be effective and pass, whether you are a child or an adult.
I have taken ESOL courses and have experience in tutoring foreign language. I have also lived overseas learning languages in class and by the "full immersion" method. I am very familiar with the dynamics of the TOEFL tests and can help facilitate the student to pass.
