I love working one-on-one or in small groups with students to give them the individualized attention that will help them soar!! My goal is to profoundly and positively impact the lives of my students and to help each one reach his or her full potential.
My approach to tutoring is to address the individual student’s learning style and to individualize the teaching after assessing the student’s needs. Each individual learns best if the approach to learning is through the preferred learning style and built upon what the learner already knows (as supported by the research literature).
I love to create an atmosphere in which the student builds self-confidence through success. By helping a student to bridge the gap in his or her knowledge and understanding, the student achieves success and then develops the self-confidence to take on greater challenges. Success in learning also creates greater motivation to learn, which promotes engagement by the student in the learning process. Thus, one success builds on another.
I have more than 4 years experience in the educational setting with Dallas ISD, and have tutored reading (comprehension), writing, and math at the elementary level, reading and science at the high school, and math and science at the middle school levels. I am also capable of tutoring reading and writing at the secondary or college level and for SAT. I have a strong command of proper grammar, spelling, and writing skills with an extensive background in writing for many years and am a self-published author and poet. I also write recreationally on a blog when time permits. As a graduate student I achieved a 4.0 GPA and my course work required many research papers and other comprehensive writing assignments.
In Dec. 2010 I completed my master's degree in education at TX A&M University-Commerce with a focused emphasis on the learning sciences—how students learn and the best teaching strategies to use based on the recent research. Graduate studies also included teaching strategies for at-risk students and English language learners.
My certifications as a Texas teacher are for K-6 all subjects (generalist), science grades 4-8 and English as a second language K-8.
