ADD/ADHD

I was a college professor who taught strategies for diverse learners to implement in their daily lives. I provided individual diagnosis and remediation for struggling students at St. John's University as a clinician for two years. I have been teaching for 28 years, and I incorporate all modalities when I teach and tutor. I like to be creative in my teaching approaches, and I design hands-on lessons to help my students to learn according to their needs and strengths.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have experience teaching first grade and third grade in the public school system. I am certified to teach PreK-6th grade. I also have a Master's degree as a Reading Specialist and I am certified to teach in NY, PA and TX. I am currently substituting K-12 in Pearland.

ESL/ESOL

I am a certified ESL teacher in Texas. I am currently teaching sixth grade ESL students at Pearland Independent School District full-time. I have a few openings left in my tutoring schedule this summer.

GED

I have a lot of experience in helping students to prepare for examinations, especially GED, SAT, GRE and STARR testing.

Phonics

I pioneered an Early Learning Center for children ages 3 to 5 years old. I taught there for three and a half years. I also taught first grade for three years and phonics, specifically. I also taught on the college level, elementary education majors, strategies for teaching reading.

Praxis

I am a certified teacher in three states in Elementary Education PreK -6, Reading Specialist K-12, and Principal K-12. In addition, I took the Texas exams this spring and passed them all. I am familiar with the Generalist EC-6 and would love to tutor others to pass this Praxis exam. I also taught SAT prep courses in the past.

Public Speaking

I have been a public speaker for the past 25 years. I was a college professor and delivered lectures for 15 years. I also conducted teaching seminars at my church. In addition, I traveled to Roatan, Honduras and spoke at a teachers convention for seven nights to train public school teachers in teaching English.

Reading

I am a Reading Specialist and I was a professor of Reading Strategies for 15 years. I would love to help!

Religion

Since I was in the seventh grade, I volunteered at my church to teach the children with special needs. I was a Pastor's wife for 24 years and was in charge of all of our children's programs from Nursery through 8th grade. I wrote all of the curriculum, and I worked at youth camps each summer. I started my own Early Learning Center at our church and was Director and Head teacher for three years before I relocated to Texas after my husband passed away.

Social Studies

I have a Bachelor's Degree in teaching with a minor in Social Studies. I taught for 30 years and have substituted for the past three years in all academic subjects. Specifically, American History is one of my favorite subjects and I taught it as a long term substitute at the high school level. I have also tutored AP World History.

Special Needs

I was an adjunct college Professor for fifteen years at three Universities in four states. I taught undergraduate Elementary Education students and Master's level courses on teaching students with special needs. The focus was on inclusion strategies for student success.

Study Skills

I have been an educator for 30 years. I successfully helped students between the ages of 3 and 50 to succeed academically. I taught many college courses to include Reading strategies, study skills, student teaching requirements, etc. Teaching is my passion and I really enjoy helping students to excel.
