I have taught English as a Second Language, language arts, reading and writing to students of all ages and at all levels of the academic spectrum: Elementary through College. I have taught both in the United States and in South America. My background is diverse and eclectic. I enjoy teaching and, I believe that learning should be fun and exciting for the students who are learning. I use a variety of activities and methods to stimulate the interest and motivation of the students with whom I work. I am also learning while I am teaching!

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.
I have my MEd and have worked professionally with students PreK-12 (as well as adults and university students). As a former program administrator, I was responsible for hiring and training teachers (all elementary subject areas) to work in English only classrooms as well as bilingual classrooms. These were culturally diverse settings at all grade levels, often integrating classroom activities to reenforce academic skills.
Study skills are important for students at all grade levels. Depending on the type of learner that one is (oral, visual, etc.) the skills needed to retain information varies. Reading, using highlighters (when possible), taking notes, utilization of graphic organizers and using outlines are some of the skills that I have taught students to use help them be more successful with studying. Some students benefit from quiet settings, while others find settings with soft music in the background helpful to relax while attending to their studies.
