About Delfina

I've been teaching Special Education for 4 years. As a "resource" teacher for students that need to improve their Reading, Writing and Math K-12. I am a Spanish Teacher as well. I think that any student can improve their academic skills. I can tell you because all of my students have been improving dramatically. I remind them that effort pays off, set the rules and expectations for good communication based on mutual respect and then we discuss and listen what are expectations, educational needs. Based on that I designed a plan and adequate materials that is aligned to the Arizona Standards. The sky is the limit...

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

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.

Elementary (K-6th)

I have an elementary certificate and am highly qualified by ADE. I have experience in teaching reading, writing and math K-5.

Phonics

I am a Special Education (CCS) Teacher in Reading, Writing and Math. I graduated from the University of Arizona. I am a "highly qualified" teacher since I completed all the requirements from the Department of Education.
My students in an Elementary school have been learning to read. I use special methods that help them to progress in their academics. Students learn to read fluently and comprehending what they read. But first they need to recognize sight words, build fluency through fluency drills, develop phonics and the big umbrella "phoemic awareness". Reading is not only about learning to decode but understand what the student reads. Thus, reading enables to learn. Reading and learning go together.

Reading

I am a Special Education teacher highly qualified by the Arizona Department of Education with a license in place.
